Been using it for years.

It's a great way for meeting up when the terrain is crowded - such as at Festivals, Rally's and Gigs.

Also for meeting points on the green lane network, as some are not shown on all sat nav apps

I can confirm that Nottinghamshire Police and Derbyshire Police & Derbyshire Fire services are using the system. Probably others too.
