ANSBACH, Germany – U.S. Army Garrison Ansbach has released updated installation facilities and phone book Find-It Guide phone app; hard copies also now available throughout Bavaria. One of the distinguishing features of the Find-It Guide — often referred to simply as the FIG — is its mobile app. The official Find-It Guide app is now available in both the Google Play Store (Note: Google Play may not be reachable on all military computer networks) and the Apple iTunes Store, and the app works perfectly fine on both phones and tablets. Just click the links or search either store for “find it guide”.
The Find-It Guide is a free garrison-specific handbook serving the community members of USAG Ansbach and USAG Bavaria. It provides maps, garrison phone numbers, office locations and operating hours, GPS directions, international country codes and DSN/civilian phone number conversions.
Additionally, the guide boasts a wealth of information on living and driving in Germany, PCS-ing to USAG Bavaria as well as details on Family and MWR programs. The guide also packs military and off-post business listings in the local areas.
Over 30,000 hard copy Find-It Guides were delivered across all USAG Ansbach and Bavaria, including camps and installations in Illesheim, Grafenwöhr, Vilseck, Hohenfels and Garmisch.
Guides specific to other garrisons are also available at Army garrisons Stuttgart, Rheinland-Pfalz and Wiesbaden. The addition of USAG Ansbach adds consistency and predictability for those visiting here and those visiting garrisons with the guide.
Production of the guide began in the spring of 2017 when officials with garrison Public Affairs Offices in Ansbach and Bavaria teamed up with leadership at AdvantiPro — the company based out of Kaiserslautern that publishes the Find-It Guide across Germany.
