GopherHush is a private positioning data service for smartphones founded by Dr Paul McBurney (former CTO and co-founder of eRide-Inc.) and is based in Palo Alto, CA.

Using proprietary, smartphone native technology, GopherHush dramatically expands handheld device location functionality. 

Aside from hyper-local location based uses, the technology has application in automotive sectors (usage based insurance, safe driving rewards, vehicle maintenance cost reduction) and advertising (ambient location agents, mobile advertising). And we're certain there are many other uses particular to our partners' needs.

GopherHush's "secret sauce" enables smartphones to continuously maintain user location without requiring continuous GPS connectivity and most importantly has an incredibly light touch on battery use.

GopherHush is currently in stealth mode and we welcome partner inquiries.
