Description

Incorporate “What3Words” navigation to locate any 10′ x 10′ square spot on the planet. For example, the torch of the Statue of Liberty is located at “toned.melt.ship”.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Ford’s 2019 SYNC 3 infotainment platform offers it via a phone app. Mercedes Benz (a part owner of What3Words) introduced in the A Class in 2018. We are behind on this one, and the advantage of this capability is significant because many desirable locations are not identified by an address.

"We are behind on this one"

Uh, I'm not too sure about that.  I went to https://what3words.com/2016/04/the-times/ and the article had a date of April 29, 2016 so without stating an opinion one way or the other about this and without knowing more I am erring on the side of a downvote.  This is the first I've heard of this.
So you're saying that a new technique announced in 2016 that allows you to navigate to a 10-square foot spot anywhere on the planet by speaking or entering just three words is something you DON'T want? Wow.
I don't get this, how should I know that I must say "toned.melt.ship" when I want to goto "the Statue of Liberty"

so first I must do a search on a app on what the 3 words is for a given location so I can say them, way not just say "navigate to the Statue of Liberty"

way on earth do you want to remove the current say the name of the location to one where you must know 3 random words for it to work
