India: Mapping solutions provider, MapmyIndia, has launched its portable GPS-based 'SafeMate', a dedicated personal safety device for women, children, and families. SafeMate is small enough to fit in a school bag, purse or pocket. The device is constantly connected to the GPS and the Internet to transmit real time location to the mobile phone and desktop. An interesting feature in the new device is that it helps users see their location on extremely detailed house-level maps from MapmyIndia, and get directions to them. A SafeMate companion app by MapmyIndia, is available on Google Play Store for Android users and Apple App Store for iOS users.
