Geo Alarm


On a journey of a few hours, it's general to get asleep, indulge yourself into reading, watching movies on your laptop, etc. Nothing wrong with that. But what if during this you miss the station you supposed get down at? Don't believe me, see Who missed the station and how (Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated to any commercial brand shown in this content nor I have any copy-writes.) And Nobody wants to get into that situation. This is where Geo Alarm comes to help.

Nice idea, I'm not sure how well this works with a tablet/laptop as compared to a phone though.
