CARY, N.C., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Securus, Inc., maker of a groundbreaking line of personal and enterprise mobile safety and security products, today announced that the company has expanded its cellphone carrier coverage to enable more customers to track and locate Securus GPS devices by sending a text message from a registered cellphone. Securus expanded its texting capabilities by adding four additional carrier networks – including Metro PCS and Cricket, and is now covered by 50 carriers in total. This expansion adds an additional 15 million consumers to have the capability to receive text alert capabilities. 

Although many customers prefer to track Securus GPS locators through satellite, street-level or hybrid map displays online or via the free Securus smartphone app, the company offers a simple way for cellphone users to locate Securus GPS devices by sending a text message and receiving a return text with the location. This function works with all Securus GPS locator products, including Portable Tracking & Safety Locator, eZoom, and Emergency Medical Response Device, eCare+Voice.

"The text-to-find function is a quick and easy way for cellphone users to keep tabs on family members, vehicles, pets or valuables," said Christopher D. Newton, President and CEO of Securus, Inc. "Customers can just text 'find' and the name of the locator to a five-digit number, and Securus will send the device's current location information to the registered cellphone via return text."

Securus continuously refines its products and upgrades service delivery methods to expand customer options. For more information on Securus, Inc., please visit www.SecurusGPS.com.
