GPS Trackdown: Best Phone Tracker for Various Emergency Situations

There’s nothing worse than having to put up with losing something that is extremely important to you. Of course, in these modern times, what everyday tool could be more vital than one’s phone? For the average professional or student, it pretty much contains all aspects of our day-to-day activities. It also houses all our private correspondences, which as much as possible, persons with malicious intent are more than willing to use for their own criminal agendas.

With GPS Trackdown, you can prevent any future predicament involving your lost phone because of its ability to help you track it. Evidently, it could also be used as a great means to finding a friend or loved one who has suddenly gone missing. In fact, the Panic Alert feature of this app confirms this notion. It’s a feature, after all, that promptly sends to an emergency contact (which you can freely set) your location history. Yes, besides tracking your phone, the app also saves the locations you’ve been to, and you can share them to most major social networks as well.

Another noteworthy feature is the Stealth Video Recording that accompanies Panic Alert. This allows you to record a video in such a way that any unwanted individual or strangers won’t be able to know that you’re doing so. On the other hand, you can reinforce your safety as you go out with Follow Me. When using this feature, you can choose to make known your location to a contact in various intervals of your liking.

One other nifty feature is the one that involves getting an email from the app of the last location of your phone before it runs out of battery. You can also save the present area you’re in and send it to your contacts. Need to remember a specific address you’ve been to? You can easily retrieve it by doing this. That the app offers support for 911 centers with the use of Text-to-911 makes this app pretty much a bonafide all-in-one platform.

Other miscellaneous features include information about movie show times, local weather in your area, and search. You can even avail of Waze- and Google Maps-like features like getting directions, support for Google Navigation, planning your route with a number of stops that you can liberally set, save waypoints, and even a reminder of where you last parked your car. You will be promptly notified of any alerts by this app’s Notification Assistant as well.

GPS Trackdown stands out from other apps that capitalize on GPS to track down lost phones with the other features it throws into the mix. These features not only works in great synergy with its main function, but they also prove to be indispensable, if one is to look at the bigger picture. After all, can you really make do without this app’s Panic Alert feature? Or its hands-on way of providing you directions to places you want to go?
