This blog is mainly for me, a way of remembering things I've done; when I couldn't find an answer on Google, I wrote about it here. Hopefully, other people may find it helpful too.
Add latitude and longitude coordinates to iPhone contacts

Apple maps address searches are not great outside the US; most of the addresses I have in my contacts don’t work or are not accurate.

My workaround … add a URL to the contact with the GPS co-ordinates (I used google maps to find the co-ordinates), such as:,-6.25946

This URL will forward to google maps when used on a non-Apple device or browser.
