WHAT IS BEECONZ
BEECONZ eliminates the need for inputting addresses, when they’re even available.
BEECONZ reduces the location of any person, group, business, event or even item down to 6-digit codes or BEECONZ. These codes are shareable either privately or publicly and allow for real-time, pinpoint accuracy with minimal input.

How do I tell my car service where to go if there’s no address shown?

What are “PreBeez”?
They are locations that have been pre-tagged and labeled by you. Just tap “PreBeez” to tag your current location. They are available if you choose to input a remote location either with “Set Beeconz” or “Quick Beeconz”.
Why would I pre-tag locations.
Pre-tagging is handy if you are scouting multiple locations for things like film locations. It’s also handy if you don’t want to return to a location again like your booth space at a large venue to set your Beeconz.
