Hi!

The latest update on my phone mentions in the version history that the upcoming version will support MGRS and UTM coordinates. Excellent new features!

Whenever I use google maps, it is easy to get a "plus.code" from there. As an example, Zurich airport is FH63+F9 Kloten, Eiffel Tower V75V+5W Paris, France. I think it would be really convenient if we could copy/paste those into SD as well. 

The http://plus.codes/ are free to use, usable offline, there's an opensource library to do the conversions. I have no idea how much it would change the binary size though.

Would you like me to move this to the suggestions forum? I've never heard of these things, so it might be useful for others to weigh in.

Oh, I should have scrolled down for a better forum. Yes, please do.
