FIND FRIENDS ON IPHONE AND OTHER RELATED PHONE TRACKING DEVICES

Unread post by Heksie » Mon Oct 16, 2017 9:27 am

The tragic accident this weekend near Chrissiemeer proved the ability to Find a Friend on Iphone and other mobile phone tracking apps most valuable and certainly spared the loved ones, families, friends and SAR crews a night of agony and pain.

The fact that the lady occupants son could give us a last known position on her I-phone, practically were the X marks the spot.

Without this, it would have resulted in an extended ground search in bad weather and a not so possible aerial search looking at the initial forecasts.

If you are the owner of an I-phone, or for that matter any other phone capable, please leave some details with someone you trust.

It makes a find in unfavorable circumstances just so much easier.

Tracking an I-phone without the Apple ID is practically impossible not only in SA but to all SAR crews worldwide as I asked my counterparts this very question in New Zealand.

No Apple ID or active Find my Friend - no information.

If you do not trust anybody, leave it in a safe or bank or under a rock in your yard.

It saves a lot of agony and better the chances of saving your life.
Not even Witches fly in bad weather!!
