    Since I generally print an A4 or A3 portion of a map the existing printed grid references are often missed out. One cannot radio/phone a location without grid references. My current solution uses a pencil shortly after printing!

    Please note that even if this feature is the most popular request, it may be put on a back-burner as it's likely to require a GIS server which will cause a lot of extra expense. I will investigate different options that might be cheaper to implement though - might have to get creative.
