Useful. Even better if it had an option to auto switch between GB and Ireland refs based on current location.

This widget is really excellent on my Fenix 5. I wanted something that would give my current position quickly but without having the GPS running all the time. This widget does exactly that. Thank you.

Simple but effective. Only shows your current location but that is exactly what it says on the tin!

Looks like a great widget but anywhere I go my fenix 5 keeps saying waiting for GPS, GPS no fix?

Pretty accurate but only shows OS grid ref, can't change to MGRS?

Hi John, you need to use the settings in the Garmin Connect phone app. to configure the widget to use MGRS. If you can't get it to work let me know through the "contact developer" link and I'll talk you through it. Cheers, Mark

Really good widget. How do I get it to display MGRS co ords though? It just shows BNG constantly.

Love this app, perfect for basic positioning. Thanks for the product

Love it. Complete newbie here though, can OS GR field be shown continuously on a watch face?

I'm not sure - I don't think the GPS can be accessed from the Watch API so I don't think it's possible, but even if it was it would be a major drain on the battery. The best way I've found of doing that is to add the OS GR as a data field to an Activity so at least the GR is always available while out hiking / running. Send me a note via the contact button if you'd like more info on how to set that up. Cheers.

Great to have so accessible on the list of widgets. Takes no time to give accurate 10 fig grid ref. Thanks

I'm not currently getting a GPS fix on my new Fenix 5. It's just says waiting for GPS. Even with a clear view of the sky it isn't aquiring any satellites. If you could help me out it would be appreciated.

Hi Paul, thanks for your review, I'd like to fix the problem you're seeing in only getting a 5 fig grid ref... If you get a chance could you post some more details to the forum thread: https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?305827-DataField-UK-Grid-Reference or get in touch through the Contact Developer link on the right. Cheers

Hi Craig, I'm doing some work on the widget and data field so might be able to add support for more locations (e.g. Irish Grid support is one that a few people have asked for). Could you let me know a bit more about how you'd like to use it outside the UK? In particular what location formats would you like to see? If you get a chance please post some more details to the forum thread: https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?305827-DataField-UK-Grid-Reference or get in touch through the Contact Developer link on the right.

Brilliant! Very quick to get the grid reference.

Gives a 10 fig grid ref which is very accurate against my other dedicated GPS unit, however when in a grid ref starting with a 0, e.g. NZ 04257 13770 it reads NZ 4257 13770. Fine if you can remember it omits a zero at the start. A simple fix - I'm sure?? 3 stars for this version, 5 if the zero bug can be fixed.

Great as both widget and data screen. Would be even better if Garmin would let us scroll through data screens when paused.

Steve Low

This widget works well for me on the FR230. BUT what I really want is a simple data field, so I can add it to my Run screens and get my OS grid ref while in the middle of a run. I see Mark has created such a data field and put it in the store, but for some reason the FR230 isn't listed as compatible so I can't download it. Can this be fixed?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
