As the call is made by a mobile phone you will have the normal tools available for finding location such as wireless data provided by the network carrier. In addition, Emergency Assistance provides GPS coordinates generated by the vehicle’s on-board GPS receiver so that you may have another method to determine the vehicle’s location. These coordinates are repeated twice within the introductory message.
Vehicle GPS information
Using the coordinates provided by SYNC®'s on-board GPS receiver, you can determine the caller’s location generally to within 11 meters. In many cases this information is more accurate when compared to the data provided by the network carrier. The GPS data received from SYNC® will be in the format WGS 84 signed (+/-) decimal degrees to the 4th decimal place. It is compatible with most mapping software packages and can be used on free mapping websites such as www.google.com/maps.
A sample set of coordinates may be:
“A crash has occurred at the following coordinates Latitude 51.0271 and Longitude 6.9399”…"
