Hiking, biking, camping, fishing, hunting, boating…the list of fun outdoor activities goes on and on.  Millions of us enjoy these sports without ever thinking about getting lost or injured.  QuickFind Numbers (QFNs) makes enjoying the great outdoors not only safer, but easier too. QFNs is the only navigational app capable of providing on-road AND off-road navigation guidance.
 

Safety

Thousands of times a year, Americans get injured or lost in the wilderness and need help.  Rather than calling 9-1-1 and trying to explain your location when you don’t know where you are, QFNs allows you to tell a first responder an exact 8-11 digit number location, speeding up rescue in an emergency.

The night of March 31, 2013, Nicolas Cendoya, 19, and Kyndall Jack, 18, called 911 from a popular hiking trail in Orange County California’s Cleveland National Forest. Lost, dehydrated, and miles away from civilization, they tried without success to describe their location to 911 operators for over 20 minutes before their phone’s battery died. Four days later they were rescued, many 911 callers aren’t so lucky.

 

Ease

There are no addresses in the great outdoors which makes it difficult to communicate locations and remember favorite spots.  Sure, Google Maps will give you the famous “Blue Dot’ but how do you describe that location?  QFNs!  QFN’s also work on lakes, rivers, and up to fifteen miles off-shore, making them perfect for recreational boaters.

    • Have you found a great fishing spot and don’t want to forget it? Easily save it as a waypoint using QFNs.

    • Are your friends joining you at an off-the-beaten path campsite? Text them your location with as few as 8 numbers. QFNs are far easier to use than lengthy, cumbersome lat/long coordinates.

    • Trying to get to a hard-to-find trailhead? Rather than following these directions:

    From the intersection of Pima Road and Cave Creek Road, travel northeast past the Bartlett Lake Road and Tonto Hills on the left, then down a steep hill. At 6.7 miles, immediately after passing the Blue Wash drainage at the bottom of the hill, turn right and park on the left side of the wash. There is room for a few cars here and others upstream on the west side of the road. Form Sears/Kay ruin, continue another .3 miles and watch for signs to the right.
    Wouldn’t it be easier just to tell everyone to meet at [364] 8919-0954?
