    Interesting and gaining popularity.
    Seems silly not to have it down loaded just in case
    App is called what3words

    There is also the maidenhead grid system used by ham radio operators at least in north america. FN02, EN03 all mean something, and Garmin used to have that feature selectable. It'll get you into a general region at least. Although older, in combination with GPS, it isn't cellular-reliant.
