Find the way in Finnish with what3words and ReittiGPS
The easiest way to find your way around the Helsinki or Tampere regions is via the ReittiGPS Journey Planner. The ReittiGPS app for iPhone pinpoints your current location and can plan a route to your preferred destination, right from where you’re standing.
Following the launch of what3words in Finnish, ReittiGPS has integrated 3 word addresses into its app functionality. It not only means users can be more specific about their start and finish points for a journey, they can also discover and share those 3 word addresses in the Finnish language.
what3words is a precise yet simple addressing system. It’s based on a global grid of 3m x 3m squares, with each square assigned a unique 3 word address. It’s more accurate than a postal address and easier to remember and share than GPS coordinates.
3 word addresses also make it easier to reach places that don’t have a defined address. So, whether you need to get to a specific entrance to a building, locate a fishing spot along the Tammerkoski or meet friends in Alppipuisto Park, ReittiGPS – with the help of a 3 word address – can take you there.
