Gr­dian ac­ci­dent re­port­ing phone app £1.99 per month

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

It’s not a new con­cept to have your smart­phone look­ing out for you in the event of an ac­ci­dent, but this one prom­ises new lev­els of care in case some­thing goes wrong while you’re out for a ride. The Gr­dian app uses the phone’s built-in sen­sors to de­tect when you’ve been in an ac­ci­dent. If it thinks you have, the app alerts a staff mem­ber at Gr­dian’s call cen­tre and they con­tact you on your phone. You tell them whether you need help, as­sum­ing you can. If you can’t, the staff alert the emer­gency ser­vices and give them your lo­ca­tion. This kind of ser­vice won’t be ev­ery rider’s cup of char, but it gives peace of mind to many that some­one is look­ing out to make sure they get home safely. The cost is £1.99 per month with no min­i­mum term. It’s cur­rently avail­able for An­droid smart­phones and is ex­pected for Ap­ple phones in the near fu­ture.
