Need to share location information ? Have a look at

It's a geocoding system for the communication of locations with a resolution of three metres. What3words encodes geographic coordinates into three dictionary words. For example, the bunker at Hack Green is located at "burns.attic.snails". This differs from most other location encoding systems in that it displays three words rather than long strings of numbers or letters. What3words has a website and apps for iOS and Android.

Great if you want to meet up in the middle of a field that doesn't have an address or you need greater accuracy than a post code. Easier when texting, emailing, whatsApp etc than looking up grid refs........
