    I’m in the us army I’ve been to three different training areas in the country in the last 90 days. This APP is superior to any other app I’ve used. Sitting here fir five min trying to pick a dam nick name to submit is really annoying.
  • Outstanding GPS in multiple coordinate system

    This is an outstanding GPS with huge Military Grid Reference System or Latitude/Longitude or Decimal Degrees formats. The other screens allow you to mark places. Although it takes months to get a response the developer will actually communicate with you! With Wifi the maps are great. Without Wifi there are no maps. Outstanding App with 2 hopeful updates.....1. Download maps for use when not on-line and 2. Have a conversion button for converting MGRS to others and back. I have used this in several countries and it is outstanding!
  • Suggestion for the creators

    I love this app and I use it all the time. Definitely money well spent. It’s the most helpful and efficient land nav app I’ve ever used. Simply incredible. My suggestion for the creators is: You should come out with an Apple Watch app to accompany your main app. Even if it was something as simply and just seeing your current grid or checking your azimuth arrow while using the navigation mode. I think that would be awesome!

    This app is the best I have came across as a medic for mapping out ambulance exchange points and MEDEVAC landing zones while in the field.
