Wildfires are the worst. They’re all over the map as far as speed and direction. They even create their own weather, not including rain, of course. It's our job to be in the right place in the right time. That's right, "in" the right place; going to war with the fire. We even scout for potential fires and mark access points on the map. Now we don't have to flip through the map book in the Brush Engine. Or the procedure manuals, shift calendar or cargo decoder either. We can carry all that in a Monterra. It combines high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite positioning with firefighter centric Android™ apps on Google Play™. With Monterra, we get the info we need to strategize a large fire at the rendezvous point, to translate for rescue victims, and to whip up the perfect chili.
