Hanoi – VinFast is set to become the first all-electric carmaker to integrate what3words navigation across its entire lineup, announced the company on January 10.

what3words is the location technology service that has split the entire world into 10 square feet (3m) chunks and assigned each chunk a unique combination of three random words to help identify it.

The system’s advantage is a voice search in more than 50 different languages, including Vietnamese. Drivers can enter a what3words address through voice or text input to find exactly where they’re looking for.

Users can also convert their current location into a what3words address by using the service’s companion app.

Chris Sheldrick, CEO and Co-founder of what3words, said that although putting an address into a navigation system can be a frustrating experience, when VinFast drivers enter a what3words address, they can be confident that the location is accurate to 10ft every time.
