RoadID: A Safety Tracking App for Cyclists, Lone-Runners, and Late-Night Walkers


Travel rarely gets dangerous, but when they do, it’s best to let others know your whereabouts beforehand. The RoadID app does just that and more. The app’s eCrumb feature lets your closest friends and relatives track your movements – but only if you notify them:

The eCrumb feature of the App is a breeze to use and allows your friends and family to track you in real time, on a map, when you head outdoors for an adventure (run, ride, hike, walk, etc). It also has an optional “Stationary Alert” that can notify select contacts if you stop moving for more than 5 minutes.

When you’re stuck in an emergency, the app’s locksreen shows just enough relevant data to help First Responders help you when you need it most.

With the Lock Screen Creator, you can provide:

  • Name
  • City and State
  • Three Emergency Contacts
  • Important medical information (allergies, medical history, blood type)
