There has been a lot of press about a driver's texting causing accidents and even involving deaths. A recent case in Massachusetts saw an 18 year old man convicted of motor vehicle homicide and sentenced to prison for a term of up to four years. More and more states are passing laws that require hands free use of your mobile phone.
The purpose of this application is to automatically send location updates to your family and/or friends while you are driving or riding a motorcycle via text messaging (SMS). It allows you to focus on the road and leave the notifying to us.
The app has a number of options that a person can choose to control the frequency of the text updates. The text update includes the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) and Distance (DST) to the destination. The address that the driver, or rider, is at when the app sends the text is also included in the message.
