Technical support and feedback



Using your iPhone for an extended period of time will drain the battery. If you are not carrying either backup battery charging facilities or an additional mobile phone, you should ensure that you minimise use until you are safely off the hill. Most accidents and difficulties arise later in the day when you are tired or when the weather worsens, so its a good idea to be sure you have plenty of battery life in your phone.
