Worth a read, shows how 3 words can show your exact location anywhere on earth and means rescue services can find people in need quicker and more accurately. Also a great home address alternative :D
All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....

    Definitely worth adding to your phone.
    I had to call the air ambulance out once to an unconscious rider and this would have helped.

    It is! Such an elegant way to solve a problem, love the fact that’s it’s being used as Mongolia’s postal addressing system

    Yes I heard an interview with the creator of the app on the radio when driving back from Herford yesterday, Sounds really good and he stated it would eventually replace Post Codes as they can relate to a whole street of houses, 100 or more where this 3 word app can relate to a 3 x 3 meter square so you could have 1 for your front door and 1 for the rear door its that precise.
    He quoted how the Emergency services are slowly getting on board but said there are only around 40 country wide so far!!!!
    Makes you wonder why this has taken so long to surface as its such a brilliant and simply idea.
