Abstract
(EN)
A mobile communication device, such as a cellular telephone, determines its current location and compares the current location to one or more target locations stored in a target location memory. When the current location of the mobile communication terminal is within one of the target locations in memory, the mobile communication terminal annunciates its arrival by generating an audible alarm, or displays or transmits a predetermined arrival message associated with the target location. In one embodiment of the invention, target location data is determined entered manually via a keypad. In another embodiment, the target location data is obtained from a positioning receiver or a server connected to the communications network and loaded into the target location memory.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif de télécommunication mobile, tel un téléphone cellulaire, qui détermine son emplacement actuel et compare cet emplacement actuel à un ou à plusieurs emplacements voulus stockés dans une mémoire d'emplacement voulus. Lorsque l'emplacement actuel correspond à l'un des emplacements voulus de la mémoire, le terminal de télécommunication mobile annonce son arrivée en produisant une alarme sonore, ou affiche ou transmet un message d'arrivée prédéterminé associé à l'emplacement voulu. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, on détermine des données d'emplacement voulu par une introduction manuelle effectuée au moyen d'un clavier. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, les données d'emplacement voulu proviennent d'un récepteur de positionnement ou d'un serveur connecté au réseau de télécommunications et sont chargées dans la mémoire d'emplacements voulus.
