This Smart System Turns Complicated GPS Coordinate Addresses Into Three Plain English Words (Android, iOS)

GPS Coordinates provide a good but complicated alternative to conventionally locating a place with a street address.

However, what3words does is to convert global locations into three words that are easier to dictate and remember than any coordinates or plus codes.

What3words has assigned a three-word address to each 3m x 3m square on a grid of 57 trillion squares across the globe. For example, to navigate to a place in Notting Hill, London, just use these three words cool.view.spark in what3words, you can then get directions to the location via Google Maps or any other navigation app on your mobile device.

What3words has been adopted by some navigation systems and postal services in certain countries. It clocked up another mileage when Daimler AG recently announced that Mercedes-Benz would be the first automobile manufacturer to integrate what3words address system and make it available to its customers.

What are the three words of your location? Check it out from this app what3words available for free on Android, iPhone and iPad mobile devices.  Read More
