The SnapTrack Clinic team developed two cell-phone applications, Direction Finder and Friendar, which demonstrate SnapTrack’s Assisted-GPS technology. Direction Finder demonstrates the utility of a cell phone user being able to quickly acquire driving directions from their current location. Friendar demonstrates the fast update speed and high accuracy of A-GPS by allowing users quickly to pinpoint their friends’ locations.
