I would love to rate this app more, but it does not seem to work with my Garmin Venu. It just continually says that there is no GPS, and never displays a grid reference. I have tried setting the watch to a run so that the GPS is turned on but have had no luck, so I'm quite disappointed
I'm sorry it doesn't appear to work. This user emailed me for help then posted a poor review a few hours later. I replied in some detail with several suggestions. He hasn't had the decency to respond and tell me if it works or if he still has problems. If you have a Venu, I would love to know if the widget works for you or not so I can try to chase down any bugs.

Very useful in the UK with OS maps. Thank you for providing.
Very glad you find it useful. Thank you for your review.

This is such a brilliant little widget in the right circumstances. Thank you so much, Simon, for taking the trouble to share it. As a keen walker, who generally relies on the old-fashioned map-and-compass, this is a wonderful quick-fix/backup in situations where I’m a even a tiny bit uncertain when consulting a map. It’s not instant but it has rarely taken more than a few seconds to confirm location.
Thanks for your kind review. I believe in map and compass too! But it's good to have a backup for bad weather or when I haven't been paying attention to the terrain.

Thanks a lot. Great that you find it useful.

This really should be included with any standard Garmin watch. The OS app is simple and does one thing very well - give me my position that I can use to relocate myself on a map or in extremis, inform Mountain Rescue for assistance. Why it is not included in the standard Garmin inbuilt apps is a serious omission. Congratulations to Simon for filling the void. Particularly like the big digit display on my Fenix 5 watch face. Prefect for the typical UK rain and stormy weather we can have without having to get the specs out!! Thanks a lot - simply great...
Thanks for your review. I'm glad you like the widget. Like you I think it should have been available directly from Garmin.

Excellent app, requested Irish Grid upgrade, completed in days. Top service!
Thank you for your kind review. I hope it continues to be useful to you.

Thanks for making this widget. I work a lot with OS maps when doing wildlife surveys and this widget mean I can use my Garmin Fenix to transfer my position quickly and easily on to an OS map.
Really helpful. Thanks :)
Thanks for your review. It's great that it's so helpful.

Thanks Simon for a brilliant improvement! The 8 digit grid reference readable without specs on the wrist when in (or out) of the driving rain is just what I need when I suspect I'm not where I thought I was or just need some reassurance.
Thanks for your kind review and thanks for asking about larger fonts. I'm very happy you like the result and find it useful.

Fantastic Widget, Thank you.
I do a lot of running and walking in the Brecon Beacons but I’m old-school and prefer map and compass.
When the cloud comes in, though you have to micro navigate.
This widget gives precise, uncomplicated information. A great safety backup.
Thanks for your kind review. I'm very glad you find it useful. You use it just how I do!

Thanks a lot!

Great app. Really useful!
Thanks. Very happy you find it useful.

Such a useful widget to have. I can’t believe this feature isn’t included as standard. Contacted the developer and got a really quick and useful response.
Thank you for your kind review. I'm glad you find it useful - I certainly do!

Was waiting not very patiently, for the update for the Fenix 6. Brilliant widget, accurate and a must for any UK based navigation with OS maps.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you didn't wait in vain!

This is a seriously good app for UK based walkers and hikers. It confirms one's position for either use with a paper OS map or the OS digital version. I had it on a Fenix 5S and now on a Fenix 6S Pro. Works very well - shows the grid reference easily and conveniently. Recommended.
Thanks for your kind review. I'm happy to know it works on the new watches.

Worked instantly and accurately on download, before I had even stepped outside. A really useful backup for a keen walker like myself and giving a simple check on location when used with a map. (Forerunner 645)
Really glad you like it. That's exactly how I use it - as a backup. Useful when I've been chatting and not paying attention to where we are!

Thank you for your kind review.
