How to find your What3Words (Mobile)

Modified on Thu, 14 Apr 2022 at 09:46 PM

what3words is a navigation system that has divided the globe onto 3x3m squares and made each square identifiable by a three word address. The practical upshot of which is anyone can provide details to a precise location without all that tedious mucking about with GPS coordinates or latitude/longitude.

This system has proven particularly useful for the emergency services, and we here at BroadNet think it's so useful we've integrated what3words support into our own systems.

Using most mobile telephones you can also use the what3words mobile app to find out your current location:


Download the what3words app to your mobile device.



Once the app is set up, tap on the screen to select a location on the map, or tap the crosshair button to show your current location.



The app will now display a 3 word address for your selected location.
