    Thanks for sharing your idea. The SPOT personal locator beacon might be a good option to check out.

    Those are great, but at $150 - $300, a lot of hikers won't spend the money. Our SAR agency can usually triangulate a phone if it's on and in range, but if its dead or out of range for a while, a series of earlier texts gives us a decent Last Known Position to work with. And, it can let our families know where we are even with marginal cell service or if we don't have time to check in.
