Loc8 Codes for Ireland
Always arrive at the right destination in Ireland with Loc8 Codes on your Garmin sat nav. These free-to-create “location codes” work like a postcode to make addresses more accurate. With Loc8 you can assign a unique reference to any residence, business, tourist attraction, event or landmark in the country and use it to search and navigate with your Garmin sat nav for pinpoint-accurate addressing.
Now there’s no need to rely on local knowledge or guess the spelling of a destination to get around in Ireland. Loc8 revolutionises the way you describe and navigate to destinations, ensuring that delivery businesses, taxis, consumers and tourists can find their way to the right door.
What are Loc8 Codes?
Loc8 Codes are digitally-generated navigation codes, which uniquely describe any destination in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, regardless how remote, commonly-named or vague the location. Once created, you can use these codes to make your own address more accurate or key into your Garmin sat nav to make sure you find the right place, first time, every time.
