  • Get found if you’re overdue. Cairn has you enter your safety contact information, so if you’re ever lost, your contact will get a notification when you’re past due to complete the activity. Contacts can also see your GPS location during your trips and receive vital information to help them make informed decisions to pursue you in a rescue initiative.
  • Stay- connected in the outdoors. The app provides a feature that shows you where others have found cell coverage. This feature is helpful in case you need to contact someone.
  • Find trail stats. Cairn shares live updates with you about your distance and elevation gain, and has ETA stats for hiking routes, summits, and thousands of trails.
