FOCUS ON THE SOS FUNCTION

This option was developed especially by CROSSCALL. Safety is an essential point to consider when practising outdoor sports, which sometimes confront us with difficult or even extreme and hostile conditions. CROSSCALL explains how to configure this function to you:

  • Go to “Settings” on your CROSSCALL.
  • The SOS function is also directly accessible in the application menu of the TREKKER-X3.
  • Click on “Buttons” then in the “Programmable Button” section, select“SOS” pressing on the activate icon.
  • Accept the “Terms and Conditions”.
  • You are then offered several options for managing your emergency call: “Recipient(s) of the emergency SMS” or “Recipient(s) of the emergency call”.
  • In both cases: click on the 3 points at the top right corner of the screen. Select “Add an item”. You will then be asked to enter the recipient’s number and the content of the SMS. Under the option “Add a contact” you can choose any person(s) you want to contact in the event of an emergency.
  • Under “Settings”, you can also choose several options: “Location via networks”, “flashing LED” in order to be located quickly, the “loudspeaker” mode and “Recording of the call”.
