If you end up in a crash or other emergency situation, the Geko PanicSafe locater can notify anyone you want, instantly. It stays plugged into your vehicle’s 12-volt receptacle while you drive. When an impact is detected, or at the press of a button, the unit will alert up to seven different contacts of your choice, such as friends, family members and emergency services. The PanicSafe will also notify your contacts if you deactivate the alert. In addition, the built-in GPS tracking (which works when paired with a smart phone) keeps tabs on your location, even if your vehicle is shut off. The PanicSafe comes with two USB quick-charge outlets. Get yours for $80 from www.stacksocial.com or www.amazon.com.
