How can I add my GO Code to my address on the contact us page of my website so that it acts as a link to a map of where I am?

If you copy and paste the following text into your website source code, you will be able to display a link on your website to a map of where you are:

<a href="http://www.gocode.in/GOCODEVALUE?Tag=YOURNAMETOAPPEAR" target="_blank"> TEXTTOAPPEARINTHELINK </a>

replacing GOCODEVALUE with the GO Code you want to map, YOURNAMETOAPPEAR with the name you would like to appear when the GO Code map is displayed, and TEXTTOAPPEARINTHELINK with the text you want to appear in the link.

For example, <a href="http://www.gocode.in/NM4C7XM4L?Tag=GOCode" target="_blank" >Click here to see a map of where we are</a>
would appear on the webpage as:

What's the best way of communicating my GO Code over the phone?

The phonetic alphabet is the most widely used spelling alphabet. The alphabet assigns code words to the letters of the English alphabet so that critical combinations of letters (and numbers) can be pronounced and understood by those who transmit and receive voice messages by radio or telephone regardless of their native language, especially when the safety of navigation or persons is essential. Try using the phonetic alphabet to remember your GO Code e.g.

Lima-6-Golf-56-Lima-Papa for L6G 56LP
Lima-Charlie-Foxtrot-4-Lima-Tango-Charlie for LCF 4LTC

To help with this, we've included a list of the phonetic alphabet codes for the numbers and letters used in the GO Code below.
A - Alpha M - Mike 0 - Zero
C - Charlie N - November 1 - Wun (One)
D - Delta P - Papa 2 - Two
E - Echo Q - Quebec 3 - Tree (Three)
F - Foxtrot R - Romeo 4 - Fower (Four)
G - Golf T - Tango 5 - Fife (Five)
H - Hotel V - Victor 6 - Six
J - Juliet W - Whiskey 7 - Seven
K - Kilo X - X-ray 8 - Ait (Eight)
L - Lima Y - Yankee 9 - Niner (Nine)


Can I use GO Codes on a mobile phone?

There is a GO Code app for India for the iPhone available on the iTunes store and an Android app on the Google Play Store.


When I search for a GO Code using my address, nothing is returned.

If you're having problems getting your address back from the search, please try the following:

  1. Check to make sure that you've entered your details correctly (e.g. selected the County).
  2. Just enter the first part of your street name in the search (e.g. Maple instead of Maple Avenue).

If you still cannot find your GO Code using the search, although we try to ensure that our data is up to date, your house may not be on the database, especially if it is a newly built home.
To get your house added to our database, please go to this link and follow the instructions.


I've found my GO Code and looked at on it on the satellite map, but it's not on the right house.

In the unlikely event that your GO Code does not point to the correct house, please go to this link and follow the instructions.
