Being late to the smartphone world and rapidly playing catch up, but previously hearing so much about the SARLOC app I thought to install it on my phone but couldn't find it in the app store. So some browsing suggests it's not actually an app but a tool that when (hopefully never) Search & Rescue are in contact with you, they text you a link that once opened allows them to see your phones GPS location. So turning to the world of knowledgable people out there is this right & is their tool different from the OS locate app ?
SARLOC v2 is available on the apple app store & he's working on an Android version, for normal use it seems like a more advanced app like OS locate but the emergency services can link in to it. Source SALOC on Facebook
