HowFarNow is a handsfree way to tell another person how far away you are while driving.

As you move, HowFarNow occasionally tries to calculate the distance between your current position and your destination.

Each time it does so, it tries to send a text message with an updated distance estimate to your chosen recipient.

The recipient does not need to install HowFarNow.

While HowFarNow makes an effort to accurately determine your phone's location and send text messages to your chosen recipient, it cannot do so perfectly or with complete reliability.

Do not use HowFarNow if the life, health, safety or well-being of anyone might be diminished, harmed or endangered by its use.
