Well, I have what3words downloaded on my iPhone and it works brilliantly (first heard about this app on the BBC website). I have now added it to my Garmin S60 golf watch and firstly get 'Waiting for GPS' then 'Loading' but nothing more happens. Having said that, I occasionally get three words, but when I look to see where the place is on the iPhone it is somewhere near the 18th green where I completed my round of golf (it seems to retain that location). Can't find any missing connections - can you help?

Thanks for your answer. It works now. Merci.

It does not have a local database requiring a cell connection... and of it had one I wish I could save a waypoint (location) with the 3W name...

Brilliant! I’ve had the what3words app on my phone for a while but it takes little while to locate etc. Now I can get my 3 word location with 2 button presses!

Hi, thank you for your 1 Star review. Next time I suggest to Google, where to find widgets on the gpsmap66, instead giving an bad review for an widget you never find.

Gave me different 3 words every time I used it while sitting in the garden. Would get the emergency services in roughly the right place if I was in the middle of nowhere, so it's a very useful app. Thanks.

I have a Fenix 3 HR and this never works. I have gone outside and connected to GPS but this app can't seem to connect. I do appreciate your hard work and will check back!

Hi, i tested it again & again & it works. Try out to get an GPS first (f.e. Time over GPS), & be shure that your watch is connected to the app on your smartphone. If it fails, write me an E-Mail. Best Sven

It needs to be clarified what this app does. I was looking for a way to enter 3 words into my garmin 5x so I can use it to navigate to a what 3 word location i enter however as far as I can determine the app just shows the what3words representation of the current location using the devices GPS.

Please make sure, that you will have an GPS signal, f.e. go outside for a better GPS Signal. Vivoactive hr works with this APP

Great little app. Introduced me to the world of What 3 Words which I find fascinating and for which I can see so many applications. It's obvious why one needs a phone to do the lookup, but with that, getting out one's phoen to use the W3W app isn't much more effort and which provides much more information - but I guess that's true of nearly any smartwatch type app. Does what it says and does it well. Kudos and thanks to the developer!

Great work on this widget. I wish it worked without being tethered to phone and connectiq. That is most likely a limitation of the 10mb algorithm. I still see this being useful though. Thanks!
