Lost Rescue


What if I need help when hiking in a forest, mountain biking, climbing a mountain or sailing at sea?

Do I really know how to send my exact location to specific person when needed? And what if I can't access the internet?

Don't worry - with Lost Rescue you can send your GPS location via SMS with a single click.

Lost Rescue is free, it doesn't use advertising and it doesn't use any tracking - it doesn't even have permission to connect to the internet. It only takes up about 100 kb of device's storage, and it doesn't drain your battery or alert you in any way if not used.

To set up emergency contact and other settings, open the separate icon "LR Settings."

Tip: If you are having trouble opening location with the new Maps application, choose browser to open the link.

Please don't give bad reviews if you can't get a signal, if it takes very long to get a signal or because of similar issues that are device or enviromnet dependent. An application can only use resources at hand. Note that it is designed for outdoors use only.

Warning: Information about your location is extremely sensitive. Only send your location to people you trust. Lost Rescue is not suitable for children under the age of 13.
