English term or phrase: grid reference
Bonjour,

Je traduis un petit article consacré à un GPS portable (portatif?) et je ne sais pas quel terme employer dans la phrase ci-dessous pour traduire le terme "grid reference", car j'ai trouvé qu'il s'agissait de "coordonnées", mais le terme apparaît plus loin dans la phrase.
Connaissez-vous la traduction consacrée de ce terme lorsqu'il s'agit d'un GPS?

You can easily load maps via SD cards, and it also comes straight out of the box talking in Ordnance Survey grid references, rather than just coordinates, so you don’t have to return to your GCSE geography textbooks to get to grips with it.

Merci de vos suggestions!
