Default Looking for a smartphone

Hi
I'm new here
I haven't bought a phone yet, searching.
What I'm looking for is a prepaid smartphone but one of the things that I really need is GPS tracking software. I have some physical disabilities, but have tried not to let this keep me down.
Last fall while hunting I got into an area that I couldn't get myself out of and ended up spending the night in the woods. I ended up coming out of it ok but it scared the heck out of my wife.
I would like GPS tracking software so that I'm hunting or fishing and am late getting home my wife or son in-law could bring up my location see if I'm only running late or if maybe they should come and check that I'm alright.
I know that itís a long shot

Thanks

Jon

hm... I think your idea of GPS is a bit different than how people use it on their phones.

The phones (in US) have GPS built into them and phone companies can trace the phones. You'll see the notice on how turning off the GPS doesn't turn off the location thing for 911 and such.
