ReliRescue enables your Windows Mobile Phone to broadcast your location to designated partners (over SMS or email).
Your location is obtained using Integrated or external (Bluetooth) GPS connected to your device.
This utility also enables any Windows Mobile platform to feed the broadcasted waypoints to track and locate the sender.
I use this utility to broadcast my location during Hang Gliding activities to a ground personal (Reli - the software is named after you...).
