Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


With the weather finally warming up and some relaxation of Covid19 restrictions many more people are heading out on day trips.

Most of the your trip goes well, but there is the one time you need assistance and you are not sure where you are.

There are a couple of location apps available for you to download on your mobile phone that will help you to locate where you are on a map which you can pass on to anyone that may need to know- emergency services, break down organisations, family members etc.

OS Locate


The app converts GPS location readings from your mobile phone to Ordnance Survey National Grid references, enabling you to determine precisely where you are on an Ordnance Survey map
