    I've read threads here and information in other websites and books about setting up a flash drive to send a distress/emergency/location signal to emails, etc when plugged in.

    Does anyone know how this works?

    Thanks!

    The only way i know how to do this uses some very iffy software and even then there's no guarantee it will work universally on any machine. When it comes to distress signals you want something reliable, this is far from that.

    I'm just curious. It's not my ideal emergency communications method.
