Wherify Wireless Expands Product Offering to Include New Location-Enabled Battery Pack; With Wherify's 'SMART-PAK' Location-enabled Battery Pack, Consumers, Fleet Managers, Public Safety Officials and Others Can Use Their Mobile Phones To Wirelessly Transmit Location Information That Can Be Viewed Anywhere In the World Via the Internet.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Wherify Wireless, Inc., developers of end-to-end nationwide wireless location-based products and services, announced today the launch of their new "SMART-PAK" battery pack that enables consumers, fleet managers, public safety officials, and others to turn their mobile phones into wireless personal location devices. Wherify made the announcement at the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) trade show, CTIA WIRELESS 2002, currently being held in Orlando, Florida.

With the Wherify SMART-PAK installed on either Nokia 5100 or 6100 series mobile phones, the user's location information can be transmitted over wireless networks to a Web interface that reveals their location within feet on a street and aerial map in about a minute. Once the location information is transmitted, users can then easily identify the location of their mobile assets, loved-ones, sales force or public safety personnel. And in the event of an emergency, help can be dispatched to the users location using accurate location information given to the emergency dispatchers.

"We are excited to expand our wireless location-based product offering into other applications, uses and markets," said Timothy Neher, founder and president of Wherify Wireless. "Now, in addition to our popular GPS Personal Locator, Wherify offers personal location-based services that can be applied to just about anyone, anywhere, anytime."

Wherify Wireless will be demonstrating their new SMART-PAK and GPS Personal Locator during CTIA WIRELESS 2002 at booth #3721. The show runs through March 20.

Wherify's GPS Personal Locator and SMART-PAK products are made possible through the convergence of Global Positioning System (GPS) and digital wireless technologies -- in combination with Wherify's patented technology -- offering a tested and proven personal safety and location solution 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

With Wherify's GPS Personal Locator for Children, parents, whether at work, home, or traveling, can use the Internet or any phone to quickly identify their children's location, within feet, in about a minute. In the event of an emergency, either the child or parent can request an emergency 911 response and local police will be dispatched. Wherify is accepting pre-orders now for its GPS Personal Locator at 877-LOCATE1, or at the Wherify Web site,

Wherify is also developing a wide-range of other end-to-end location-based products designed for personal safety, asset tracking, m-commerce, electronics, handsets, criminal justice, fleet management, and pet care markets.
