Anyone using an Android phone can get this free useful utility called "Grid Reference" from the Android marketplace. Very simple to use it does only one thing and gives you an instant location reference. A handy utility for the tool kit and as you can see glasses not required to be able to read it . This is on a Desire S. Sorry the poor quality pic but was hurrying to finish my walk before sundown.

Mods do move this if in the wrong thread!

Nice find. Looks useful and about all most people need at time when they are 'unsure' of their position.

John, I downloaded the Grid Reference app for my HTC phone (4) and really like it, great recommendation ;D

The OS maps offline are great as is the Compass button in GPS mode for easy access and of course - BIG NUMBERS for easy outside reading.

MalcolmHandoll:
How accurate do you find it?
I tried out a free version but the GR was out by a few hundred metres.
If this one is accurate, please let us know. You have to be able to trust it.
Cheers and have a great weekend.

Hello Callum. Is what you have the app called Grid Reference full? Just looked saw it priced at 4.99? It has very good reviews so interested in this. My version was the free app and the only options are the amount of figures displayed on screen. I have actually found this very useful as you say big numbers very easy to see especially as my eyes are not what they were. Its handy as I keep a small pad to make notes on a route then transfer later to my paper maps.
