Submission + - GPS cell phone tells other owners where you are

An anonymous reader writes: According to Cnet, a company called Benefon has launched a cell phone with a built in GPS receiver — nothing new there. However, this particular GPS cell phone called the Twig does something extra. It can send your GPS coordinates to another Twig owner and then that person can navigate directly to you using the preloaded navigation software. Is it just me or would this save a lot of time and effort when trying to explain to the in-laws where your new apartment is?
