Abstract

A cell phone or a PDA can have some way of programming in reminders based on their location proximity. Each reminder is keyed in with a corresponding street address or coordinate location. When you are passing within a given distance to the target location the alarm for the reminder will go off. This mechanism will serve as a helpful reminder of tasks and would allow for making stops to the grocery store, Laundromat, Post Office etc when it is convenient.
