Just ran across this. Apparently, if in distress, you blow on the whistle and the device automatically notifies three contacts of your choice that you are in trouble at a location (provided by your cellphone). It works somehow with your cell and if you are not in cell range, you would be SOL. the whistling notifies anyone in your vicinity in the traditional manner.

Anyone have experience, anecdotes, or stories about this gadget? It is on clearance at REI...
