A gentleman had been walking on Kinder Scout and became unsure of his route back down, so he called for assistance. We were able to get his precise location using PhoneFind, which meant I could talk him down without needing to call out the team. Further PhoneFind positions were used to make sure he had found the correct route until he returned to his vehicle. The development of this kind of technology means we can sometimes guide people down and be sure they are taking the correct route without having to send team members on to the hill.
