Sygic has updated its Family Locator app, allowing all users of the popular GPS app to access its flight tracking feature for the first time.
While the feature has been a part of the app for premium subscribers, it is now accessible for free users as well. Sygic states:
By partnering with FlightAware, Sygic is able to inform families about a plane's departure, landing, delay, or cancellation without needing GPS or a data connection. The new update means Family Locator has become the first app in the world to offer free flight tracking to family members. Users can now keep track of their nest, wherever they go.
Other free features on Family Tracker include real-time location, check in and SOS alerts, alerts for safe and unsafe zones, and free messaging. People who pay for the premium features can get more info from the flight tracker, along with a seven-day history of their family members' location and movements. You can download the app right now at the Google Play Store
