I was on a hike yesterday and a woman broke her arm. My Droid had died because I was trying record a stupid gps track and that thing drains the battery like mad. There were 4 of us, one went down for help while 2 of us stayed with the victim. Helicopter couldn't get close because of high winds, and they did not even see us. It was an ordeal.
I decided on a couple of things during all this yesterday. I want to buy a solar cell phone charger, I'll quit using the GPS to record tracks too, they're really not important.
But I want to know if there's an easy way to obtain current GPS coordinates from the phone so I can text message them to a family member, etc.?
