    I haven't used this and I hadn't heard of it until yesterday. From what it says in that article it sounds like a very good idea. The main difficulty I can see is whether or not a phone signal is available. In rural areas particularly this can be a problem.

    As well as being good for satnavs, it's also been used by rescue services and has saved lives.
