Thanks to a SDS-to-GPS alert, a team in a vehicle will receive the correct coordinates of the destination prior to heading out. The team does not have to set up the GPS itself as it will immediately know precisely where to go. For the fire department, police and emergency services control rooms, it is an interesting application that enables them to send the teams more efficiently and to reduce the arrival times. The provincial control room sends a short text message (SDS) to the team in the field, which includes the address of the incident, the type of incident, the caller's data, etc. SDS to GPS adds a second message with the XY coordinates of the location. In addition, the radio also receives that message and sends the data to the GPS in the care. This enables the team to navigate to the correct location.
The team does not have to enter the address in the GPS and this means that they can both save significant amounts of time and are also able to reduce the chance of errors. For example, if there is no precise address, when it involves a crossing point or a parking lot, thanks to the XY coordinates the GPS knows exactly what the team needs.
