Abstract

With “GPS Based Automatic Line Switching”, users with two lines (one for work and one for home) don’t have to switch lines so often. Instead of manually switching from work line to home line each day before and after work, the user can use their GPS to detect when they are at work and when they leave work.

Abstract

With “GPS Based Automatic Line Switching”, users with two lines (one for work and one for home) don’t have to switch lines so often.� Instead of manually switching from work line to home line each day before and after work, the user can use their GPS to detect when they are at work and when they leave work.�

 


Body

Here are some examples:

Example 1: Changing the latitude coordinate


The before area is shown in red. And the area in blue is the area after the latitude is modified.� This color scheme is used throughout the examples.

When the user moves out of the circled area (as detected by GPS), the phone automatically switches from Line 1 to Line 2 (if “Switch on Exit” is enabled).

When the user moves into the circled area (as detected by GPS), the phone automatically switches from Line 2 to Line 1 (if “Switch on Entry” is enabled).

Example 2: Changing the longitude coordinate

Example 3: Changing the radius

Example 4: Changing the line setting

This reverses which line is active inside the circled area. Now, the phone automatically switches to Line 1 when exiting the circled area. And switches to Line 2 when entering the circled area.

Example 5: Changing the “Switch on Entry” setting

Now, the switch on entry setting is disabled.� The phone will automatically switch on exiting the circled area from Line 1 to Line 2.� But the phone will do nothing on entering...
