USE YOUR PHONE TO GET YOUR LOCATION
In an emergency it is important to be able to give your location to first responders. You should always know the name of the area and the trail you are riding. But you can also use your phone to report your exact latitude and longitude.
- On an iPhone you can get your latitude and longitude from the Compass app. It’s at the bottom of the screen.
- On an Android phone you can get it from Google Maps. Just touch and hold on the map. A red pin will appear. If you click on the pin the latitude and longitude is displayed in the information window.
How to read latitude and longitude
Latitude and Longitude can be written in two common ways:
- As decimal numbers:
- As degrees, minutes, and seconds:
38° 0’45” N 122 °33’12” W
Which is read:
“38 degrees, 0 minutes, 45 seconds North.
122 degrees, 33 minutes, 12 seconds West.”
