LocPoint: GPS Location unique number for sharing

Have you ever tried sending someone GPS coordinates over the phone, with all those characters, commas and cardinal directions? That's definitely prone for errors, and this is where LocPoint steps in. It's an app that lets you generate unique identifiers for every location on Earth in easily transmittable format (5 groups of 3 digits). No indication of + / - / N / S necessary. No information with commas. To completely secure the right place, just repeat the 15 digits individually. As with the transmission of a telephone number, very simple.

Simply start the app, then use the integrated map to search for a location and generate an identifier for it. You can also convert any LocPoint identifier to a Google Maps marker. GPS coordinates are also shown for each location. LocPoint doesn't require an active Internet connection, as long as your device has an active GPS sensor.

The internet address WWW.LOCPOINT.DE can be called up worldwide with any internet browser. There is a converter integrated with which you can convert this location into a link for Google Maps. This app is a very good help in Google Maps GPS Navigation.
