Due to licensing and government rules, some regions in East Asia do not enable satellite view on the what3words global map. This is why we created a new what3words app, 三词地址 , so that satellite view can be viewed in each of these regions.

The 三词地址 app uses maps provided by AutoNavi for Android devices and Apple Maps for iOS devices, ensuring 3 word addresses display correctly given China’s unique coordinates system.

You can download the free app here on iOS and Android. You may need to have your phone language set to Chinese, or have a Chinese billing address, in order to download the app.
