The multi-network SIM will connect to any available mobile network.

If you choose to give them access, your loved ones can log on to a secure website to view the current GPS device location and location history. They can access the website using a computer, tablet or mobile phone. You are in control of whether others can log on to view the GPS device location. If you would like to set this up, Taking Care will be happy to arrange this for you.
Taking Care's Emergency Resolution team can view the GPS location and use this information to direct the appropriate help to you quickly.
