It allows you, in some situation, to send SMS message alert,
with your current location read from GPS Receiver.

That's all by only one touch of your phone!

You don't need to worry,
all neccessary things your phone will do itself.

The Recipient will get your alert message with your known location.
He can call-back and your phone will answer automatically, and turn the speakerphone mode.

Don't panic!

Unique in this program

GPS.SOS! starts the alert with the one touch of your phone.
You don't need to press anything more, you don't need to look at the screen.

GPS.SOS! will try to get your current location, from internal GPS Receiver,
if satellites are invisible, GPS.SOS! plays a special sound that you have to move your phone
to some better place where they are recognizable.

You have free hands what is important in certain situations,
and when Recipient will decide to call-back, you will start to talk without touching the phone.

Recipient reads your location, as an ordinary text message,
and he can use any web browser to watch your location on any map service.
But, when Recipient has GPS.SOS! in using too, in his phone,
he downloads the preview map with your location in just a few seconds.


The installation of this program is very easy.
It requests only three steps:

  • download this setup GPS.SOS.WINMO.SETUP.CAB file and copy to your phone
  • open this setup to begin installation
  • set at least the one Recipient number
    necessary dialog will open automatically after the setup finished

    After installation, the setup has to soft-reset your phone.

    We focus to make this installation as simple as possible, even for less experienced users.
