USCG app for phone
« on: June 28, 2016, 10:15:26 PM »

Has anybody ever used this app for your phone. From what I understand it is an app from the u.s. Coast Guard that allows you to push one button on your phone and it sends a distress signal with your GPS coordinates. Granted you probably need a cell signal for it to work but might be something handy to put on your phone.

I have the app. It has a lot of seemingly useful stuff on it. I've never had to use the emergency assistance button (yet). I mostly use the buoy information.
