PhantomEye has announced the launch of MySpot, a personal security tracking software designed to give users a one click SOS “Panic Button” on their Nokia 6110 Navigator.

PhantomEye Chairman, Ken W. Stokes said, “Before MySpot, users had to carry a special device to indicate an emergency situation and using conventional mobile phones, call up several numbers. The new MySpot solution from phantomEye solves all that complexity with a single SOS ‘Panic Button’ slide and click which can then call up to 20 pre-configured phones, send endless e-mail, SMS, IM and twitter messages (leaving a trail of so called cascading electronic breadcrumbs) – all with the current or last location of the user – and without further action needed on behalf of the sender. As a backup one phone number is also automatically dialled from the phone and this can be 000, back to base for security operatives, or in the case of teenage children – the parents!”
“While many mobile phones use GPS navigation for a variety of functions, most often to give location information and directions to the person using the phone. MySpot works in reverse – it allows a pre determined group of recipients to keep track of, and locate, the user. I believe phantomEye can now claim the GPS leading edge by exploiting this niche technology software and turning mobile phones into a “location documenting” device, sending/recording serial “electronic breadcrumbs” and offering high priority alert forwarding capability” Stokes added.
