TripN Express shares your movement via automatic SMS messages without having to sign-up anywhere. Unlike other apps where one manually still have to press the "Send" button for each individual SMS to be sent, TripN Express sends each message automatically. Recipients do NOT need a smartphone to receive the SMS. The SMS is delivered to any mobile device that can receive standard text messages.
!!! TWO FREE message credits included in the download !!!
TripN Express accurately calculates, puts into a SMS and automatically sends your:
•Position on earth [latitude and longitude]

•A selectable link that immediately opens a map with your position on the receivers’ device.
•Any additional info that you want contained in the SMS [your name, destination, ETA etc.]
Getting started is easy! Download the free TripN Express app, enter the mobile number you want to send messages to plus how often you want to send it and you’re done.

TripN Express runs in full background mode, allowing users to multitask. This means that one can dial/receive calls, send/receive emails or use other apps while TripN Express is sending its automatic location messages in the background. Perfect for when using other navigation-apps on the same device, to track ones progress on a map or maybe using the phone's camera to take photos etc.
Share your trip’s progress, or be monitored or tracked for safety purposes:
•Flying your aircraft – have someone flight-follow you.
•Sailing your boat – have someone track your coordinates.
•Hiking alone or in a group, cycling in remote areas or driving in high security risk areas - send accurate information regarding your position, just in-case anything happens!
•The list of activities is endless, horseback riding, skiing, dog sledding or hunting excursions!
Just hit the Start-button and leave it to do the sending for you. No need for any other input from that point onwards until you wish to stop sending updates. Truly set-and-forget – even when the device has Auto-Locked!
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
