Google Map Location based app that shows standard Grid References for Great Britain, Ireland and the Channel Isles, and Lat and Long position too. Great for finding where you are, and where that spot in the distance is! Hopefully useful for ornithologists, hill walkers and anyone doing anything out and about. Bearing and GPS accuracy added.

Has ability to copy marker grid reference to the clipboard or to email. Button to toggle map/satellite and button to return the marker to the GPS location of the phone.

Eugene Sully

Crashes Crashes on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1. How disappointing.

Brian Atkinson

Excellent app for me Very useful for all naturalists

Just needs a Search Facility... If this app incorporated Google map's search, this could then get coordinates of the target destination which could then be pasted into another geo - navigation app.

Great app...until it began to crash The app had everything I needed and seemed to be working fine at first but has now begun to crash regularly unfortunately. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2.

John Crawford-Baker

Poor Would be fine if it didn't keep crashing

Looked one of the best but didn't quite work. (Sony Xperia), this app seemed to have everything I needed and generally worked well and was accurate. However, when searching for a specific OS grid ref, it gave very bogus locations. Even when I entered the grid ref it said I was at, it showed a location 1000's of km away. Shame, it was nearly perfect,

Can't get the gps to switch off Hi the app itself is great, but my gps is now stuck in on mode even though I have exited the app. HTC desire. Can you help?

Battery hog Massively drains battery - even when you thought the app was closed!! Uninstalled. Oh - and real BAD FORM for a dev to rate their own app with a 5 star reply to a 1 star comment.

A Google User

Small and effective Tiny app that works exactly as the dev describes. Only app I've found that'll show not just the OS grid reference of the phone's location, but also of any map point you choose.

A Google User

Xperia Ray Absolutely fantastic, although GPS does get stuck on after closing the app. . . Although you can then manually switch off on phone settings or widget if you have one. Fix this and allow to switch between miles and km and I'd say its a five star :-)

Nice little app for OS GB grid refs. Gives dist to tapped point on screen, **** if it also gave Bearing.

A Google User

Well It didn't work 4me! Program wouldn't even start! Force Close error message. Galaxy SII user.

A Google User

Drains battery :( Not nice to have a rapid battery drain caused by this aop - especially when you need it most- ie hillwalking. Deleted.

A Google User

Fab app, works 4 ireland too :)

A Google User

Useful lttle app for getting GR and helpful response from dev with fc issue.ideal for birdwatchers and naturalists or just needing accurate GR for map/data work.

A Google User

Grid Does exactly what it says. Brilliant

A Google User

Does simple job well enough. Nice little app. Leaves GPS turned on after exit (HTC Desire). Website isn't for the app, it's for the British Trust for Ornithology.

A Google User

Terrible app. Says my current location is 300 miles away from where I am

A Google User

Battery issues Seems to drain the battery, even when opened by accident and then closed straight away.

A Google User

Irish grid shown as IN123123 I.e. to 100m. Pop up remains above other apps. No crashes, HTC desire

Colin Robinson

The missing tool. This app is great in that it shows you the longtitude and latitude attached to the OS Grid Reference of where you are AT THE MOMENT. What would be really useful for route planning and destination finding purposes would be the facility to input the OS Grid Reference of, for example, your destination, and this app then produced for you the longtitude and latitude of that destination. You could then punch these into your satnav device, and away you go!

A Google User

Was good! When I first downloaded it, it worked great and just what I need. However in the last day it has crashed and had to force close!!! Great app, plz fix soon!!

Adrian May

Accurate GB grid references First one i found with GB grid references to the meter instead of the usual 100m

Andrew Barclay

Average Worked briefly then crashed. Could be a good app but needs to be improved.

Glyn Thomas

Pin pointed by 3 meters where i was......great app.
