I found this really good video on Youtube whilst looking for information on my GPS unit. I thought I’d share this as I suspect there are many people who didn’t know about this especially the texting bit. Who knows it might just save yours or someone else’s life one day.
112 works in 70 countries including all of Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and others. I’m not sure if the text thing works in all these countries but it’s worth trying, you might have to text back to 112, in the UK you initially text “REGISTER” (without the quotes) to 112 and then after they text you back you text “YES” to 999 (UK emergency telephone number).
