Guardian Trax Mobile, a mobile phone and PDA-based application for receiving position data from aircraft with Guardian Skytrax flight-following devices aboard, is the centerpiece of Guardian Mobility’s Heli-Expo’09 booth (No. 3181). Trax Mobile, being introduced this week in Anaheim, enables anyone anywhere with cellular or Wi-Fi connectivity to locate and track their aircraft.

Trax Mobile works on the BlackBerry smartphone and Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. A visit to the Guardian Mobility booth will yield details on a free 30-day trial for iPhone and BlackBerry users.

Ottawa, Ontario-based Guardian Mobility is also showcasing the latest version of its Skytrax flight-following device. The Skytrax 3i.2 now allows aircraft tracking on demand. Weighing about a pound, it is available in various portable or external-mount antenna formats.
