    Not a bad idea. Buy one and throw it in the glove box.

    The major use I see for it, is to be in your backpack when hiking or glove box for an emergency in cold weather conditions. To be honest most of us are unlikely to have the requirement to use it (thankfully) however if you are stranded off road in a snow storm (and it does happen) the charge on your car battery and of course you cell phone (which let's all admit our IPhones, blackberrry's Androids) would quickly expire hastened by the cold which would drain the battery even quicker and the fact that maybe you are in an area of low cell coverage. Now the emergency phone would still send a location signal out if it is switched on to the cell towers, which may provide rescuers that slight advantage to find you. Similar scenario for the backpacker, with the phone and a a couple of spare batteries it could be the difference between life and death, of course if you are really sensible you will carry a SPOT emergency location device http://www.findmespot.com/en/
