San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2004 Â The idea is simple. If you need help, simply press one button and be connected to a live Personal Assistant standing by just for your call. Tell the Personal Assistant what you need and they will stay on the phone with you until your problem is solved. If you donÂt know where you are, your Personal Assistant may be able to pinpoint your location to within just a few feet.
Unfortunately, until now, this type of service is only available if you owned a 1996 or later, OnStarÂ®-equipped vehicle. Obviously, you also have to be physically located inside that vehicle to utilize the service and, when you sell your vehicle, the system goes with it.
In response to the huge demand from drivers who donÂt own a suitably equipped vehicle - and from individuals who can want a portable one button communications system - Clayton Communications, Inc. has introduced the worldÂs first SafeGuardianÂ One Button GPS Cell Phone.
SafeGuardianÂ One Button GPS Cell Phone is a small, lightweight battery powered cell phone with a built-in GPS locator. It easily fits into a vehicle glove box or clips to the visor. The most impressive feature is that it is designed to go wherever you do. Clip it to your belt, drop in into a purse or move it between vehicles, it provides one button protection and convenience even when you are miles from you car.
The device is activated with just one push of the single oversized red ÂcallÂ button on the front. Within seconds, a live Âpersonal assistant & emergency dispatcherÂ answers the call 24 hours a day. The personal assistant can immediately dispatch local police, fire, paramedics or roadside assistance and much more.
The cell phone is ÂGPSÂenabledÂ allowing the assistance center professionals to perform a ÂlocateÂ in the event emergency assistance is dispatched to help the caller, if the caller is lost or in need of directions. When a clear view of the sky is available, the built-in GPS locator is accurate to within 30 feet.
ÂIf you need help and call Â911Â from your regular cell phone, the 911 operator does not know who you are, where you are or have access to any information about you. Additionally, 911 service is reserved for true emergencies only.Â said Thomas C. Franks, President of Clayton Communications, Inc., ÂThe SafeGuardian Personal Assistant who answers your call addresses you by name, has all your important information that you have provided at their fingertips (names, phone numbers, medical information, etc) and are waiting to provide whatever assistance you may need.Â
Designed for much more than just emergencies, the SafeGuardianÂ One Button GPS Cell Phone also provides a wide variety of safety and convenience features. Callers can request to be connected to anyone worldwide, store important information (names, telephone numbers, medical information, etc) for quick contact, receive turn-by-turn driving directions and even request location and directions to any local business or facility including hospitals, doctors, dentists, restaurants, gas stations, hotels, etc.
The device is small (5Â x 2Â x 1Â), lightweight (6 ounces), and uses commonly available lithium batteries (no charging required) that can last for months. It retails for $199 and the monthly service plan is just $34.95. The company offers free activation and free emergency calls. Non-emergency and optional concierge calls are $1.25/minute.
ÂIndependent, active seniors also are finding the phone is a great companion when they are alone. They like the ease of use and the feeling of safety and security they feel knowing they can get assistance anytime and anywhere with the push of one buttonÂ continues Mr. Franks, ÂIt truly makes a great gift for any aging parent who would never buy or use a regular cell phone.Â
The SafeGuardianÂ One Button GPS Cell Phone works anywhere in the United States that has analog cellular service available. Clayton Communications offers a free 30 day money back guarantee to all subscribers. For more information or to order, visit http://www.safeguardian.com or call 800-378-2957.
