As per 2005, all cell phones manufactured after Dec 31, 2005 have GPS
chips as a federal regulation . Calling 911 on your mobile, will give
the responder a pinpoint position to your location.
I've personally experienced this, where I saw a car flip off the
highway, and I pulled over, calling 911 immediately. The 911 service was
able to get my exact location, and an ambulance and police were there in
about 5 minutes.
