I have an idea and that is for what3words to automatically turn on and send coordinates back to what3words every 10 to 15 minutes when the holder of the phone moves into certain zones/ locations. When I say zones I mean national parks, wilderness, places where a person could get lost or injured and maybe not able to use the app because of being out of cell tower range or injured. Thank way what3words could be contacted to find last known location to rescue person.

Where am I?

Hey Vanessa Carr. You can download the what3words widget which provides a constant 3 word address.  I have shared a feature video for you to review in case you wanted to download for iOS.

I can see objections regarding personal privacy issues.
Perhaps if this is an opt-in switchable option it could be a very valuable safety feature.
