what3words is an easy way to identify precise locations. Every 3m square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. Now you can find, share and navigate to precise locations using three simple words.

Use what3words to:
- Help emergency services know exactly where to find you
- Plan exact meet-up locations
- Tell car breakdown services where you are
- Navigate to any destination easily
- Save your favourite memorable spots – a viewpoint, waterfall or proposal location
- Save key work locations, from incident reporting to delivery entrances
- Help people find your business or Airbnb
- Guide people to accessible entrances.

what3words addresses are accepted by over 85% of UK emergency services as well as the AA, and many UK delivery companies. Businesses and hotels display what3words on their contact pages, and booking confirmations – anywhere you would normally find location information.

Popular features:
- Find your current what3words address offline
- Compatible with navigation apps including Apple Maps and Google Maps
- Save your favourite locations and categorise them into lists
- AutoSuggest prompts you with intelligent suggestions
- Available in over 50 languages
- Navigate offline with compass mode

Saved me

This app is amazing and is incredibly easy to use. Today my wife called me saying she was on the side of the road and that the car was smoking. Once I made sure she had pulled over and that she and our child were out of the car (and that the car was not on fire), I asked her where she was. She wasn’t sure. I then remembered that we had just downloaded this app (but had never used it before). All I had to say was, “Send me your What3words then hangup and call CAA for a tow-truck - I’m on my way.”

Having never used the app and despite being flustered and not the most tech-savvy person, my wife sent me a message (it’s integrated into the app), which opened on my What3words app and I hit ‘navigate here’ and it popped open in Google Maps (what I like to use).

Download this app and have your friends and family download it - you never know when you’ll need it like I did.

To the developers: thank you.

Police rescue

My wife and I were in a tough spot in rough terrain and needed help this summer. We called 911 and the responding officer directed me to the what3words website. I sent him the three words and they came through thick bush up a mountain straight to us. They say 90% of their rescues are resolved by using the app. I can’t recommend it enough.
