Using the what3words app

To change your default map view in the what3words app:

  2. Then tap Settings followed by Map settings.

Using the online map

  • On the online map, it’s currently not possible to change your default map view to satellite.

  • Tip: A URL parameter can be added to a what3words address link to make it open in Satellite view. Add the parameter ?satellite=true to the end of a what3words address link to do so. For https://what3words.com/filled.count.soap?satellite=true.
