    I use an iPhone app called Maidenhead. Seems to work pretty well.

    According to my app, accurate to 33 feet right now from FN20ou17.

    Probably because the last I saw he/she was trying to build a bookcase/bed and having trouble with a voice response system on the phone... :)

    Get a cheap SiRFstarIII GPS module, an Arduino and a character display and roll your own.

    I use the same app.

    Since its claimed accuracy is about 33 feet, when I've been "roving" and change grids, we always roll at least 50-60 feet into the grid to be pretty sure we're in it.

    The Apple App Store has one called Maidenhead Converter. Is that the one you mean?
    There is an app called just Maidenhead, but it is something else (not radio related).
