VMS Idea: Integrating GPS With Mobile Apps

Smartphones and tablets pretty much all have GPS built in.

Mobile apps are commonplace for VMS systems but we are not aware of any that take advantage of the built-in GPS capability.

What if VMS mobile apps used the device's GPS to better manage / display cameras. For instance, the app could immediately pull up the cameras closest to the device to show the user what is happening nearby. Or the app could display a map, center it on the user's current position and show where the cameras are relative to the user.
