Now on several cell phone models, GPS (global positioning system) location tracking is a popular feature on cell phones for seniors.
The potential is significant for helping find lost or disoriented seniors via GPS coordinates transmitted by their cell phones.
This GPS feature made the Wherifone GPS Locator Phone a standout among mobile phones for seniors. However the Wherifone brand is no more, although some of the original phones are still available in limited quantities.
Significantly expanding the security and convenience of cell phones for seniors through GPS-based technology, the Wherifone GPS Locator Phone by Wherify Wireless helps pinpoint the location of the person carrying the phone right down to within a few feet.
The Wherifone GPS Locator Phone lets you see a road map as well as an aerial photo of the location of your loved one who is carrying the phone. Help can be summoned by the phone user with the push of a button.
In its hey day, the Wherifone GPS phone came in five colors - blue, purple, black, pink and silver. With five programmable buttons and a two-way speakerphone, the lightweight GPS Wherifone is also ideal as a cell phone for children.
