Default What3Words App

I hope this doesn't get shot down by the Administrators as advertising (I have no connection with the App developers at all, apart from finding it very useful) !

I often see people on the Forum asking where such and such a place or service is available, and vague replies such as "it's next to such and such a place", when the such and such a place may not been known to the person asking (not having a go at anyone here, as all help is welcome).

Well if you use the Smartphone What3Words App is is possible to give the location within 3 Sq. Mtrs. By entering the 3 words given into the App, it is possible to use linked Apps such as Google Maps etc. to find directions to the location.

I understand it is now used by some of the Emergency Services to find the exact location of people, so have a look at the website and see if it is for you.
