    Stay safe when winter driving with this essential app

    • Easy to set up and use
    • Gas alerts
    • Carbon monoxide poisoning protection
    • Emergency contacts
    • Design ugly

    "Survival of the fittest"


    If you get stuck while driving in the winter weather, you’ll need to know your exact location to get help. With the Winter Survival Kit you can quickly find your current location, call the emergency services, and know how long your car can run for based on how much gas you have. There's also great tips on prepping your car for icy weather, and what you should include in your emergency travel kit.


    The app is very simple to use, and for a free resource, is very complete. You're taken step by step through set up, and once you've input all your info, you can have all your important gear like insurance policy numbers, emergency contacts etc, to hand. It will estimate the amount of fuel you have left, and could even save your life by protecting you from carbon monoxide poisoning.


    The app's design is a bit clunky and tired looking.

    The Winter Survival Kit app can be as critical as a physical winter survival kit if you find yourself stuck or stranded in severe winter weather conditions. This app will help you find your current location, call 911, notify your friends and family, calculate how long you can run your engine to keep warm and stay safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.

    You can use the Winter Survival Kit app to store important phone and policy numbers for insurance or roadside assistance. You also can designate emergency contacts you want to alert when you become stranded.

    If you become stranded, the Winter Survival Kit app will help you determine your geographic location and contact emergency services. The app's "gas calculator" will help you estimate how long you can run your engine on your remaining fuel.

    Winter Survival Kit will alert you every 30 minutes to remind you to periodically turn off your engine and to check your exhaust pipe for snow buildup. These alerts are critical in helping you avoid deadly carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Winter Survival Kit also provides NDSU Extension Service information on how to put together a physical winter survival kit and prepare your vehicle for winter driving, and how to stay safe when stranded in a winter storm.

    Everything in one place, you don't have to go searching through your phone for emergencie contacts and insurance information. Will most definitely save the battery. Again I hope I never have to find out if it doesn't work.

    If you don't have service, this app is utterly useless. Quite a failing for a 'survival' app. I suppose it could be useful if you were stranded in your car near town, but for the love of god, don't rely on it in the mountains. The devs really should re-work the app for off line use.

    Although this app may be a little basic for folks living in the snow belt, for those of us who only see significant snow rarely, it contains a great deal of info.
