Why not GPS?

GPS is great for tracking cars, bad for tracking people. GPS depends on orbiting satellites to locate a person. GPS may not be able to locate in buildings, in bad weather, or in heavy under brush or trees. Clients are not aware they are lost and will not seek open areas which GPS systems require. Sometimes, low tech is better than high tech.
