The cordless telephone second generation (CT-2) requires wireless access within 300 yards of a telepoint terminal outside of the home base unit. A CT-2 user in an unfamiliar location may have difficulty in locating the closest telepoint site. This accessibility limitation would render the CT-2 communicator useless outside of familiar locations, such as during business or vacation travel. A simple means of determining the CT-Z unit location and comparing this with stored telepoint site information would provide the user with the nearest telepoint site location.
