Download the app first. Then type the words in the text straight into the search bar :thumb:

1. Download the app
2. On the screen after you open the map, type in the 3 words you have been given
3. This will point to a location on the map, which is possibly where the deer is

Optional - On iPhone, you can choose either Apple or Google maps. I tend to stick with Google maps.

Yes me too.

In my iPhone I type or paste the words into the What3Words app and then choose Google maps to navigate to the spot.

If you don't already have the app on your phone and cannot download it...post the 3 words on here and someone will look it up and give you a map reference.

Get the App it's brilliant. Everyone should have it.
It's intuitive once you've got the app. Just click on the links. Or click on share to send it by email or whatsapp.
Pinpoints exactly.

If you don’t have the app, you can google what three words and put the words into their website.

Or - for those old skool amongst us - go to streetmap.co.uk, type in the W3W 3-word address, hit enter, and then click the “click here to convert coordinates” link below the map.

It will then open up a box that shows Lat/Long, nearest postcode, OS grid ref, etc as well as the original W3W address.
