    Great for what it does: point overlays, sharing with others, navigation, changing between units (datum, distance, etc.), coverage across continents Make it better: enable shapes or graphics in overlays, navigate to point after selection from map screen rather than having to go through the overlay screen, update imagery periodically
  • Never tells me it can’t load

    Always works toward getting my location and map imagery, it never stops and tells me it can’t do it based on low signal, which is extremely helpful in the field.

    I’m in the army and work as a Forward Observer, 80% of my job has to do with accurate grids, distances, altitudes, or anything that deals with location accuracy! This app has hands down worked better than any equipment the army has given me. I use it every time I go on deployment or just practicing in the field! Couldn’t ask for a better app lol ITS PERFECT THE WAY IT IS PLEASE DONT UPDATE IT!!!! Lol

    Smooth working app. Would like a little more instruction built in for using features. The main thing I would like to see is a MFF feature including glide ratio and above ground altitude
