    Great app. Use it all the time. Could use the ability to put in lines between points or even create boxes. Otherwise love this app above all other navigation apps.

    Love this app! I use it from planning to execution. I just wish the overlays had more of an actual military feel. It needs to have the ability to add lines and objects such as enemy icons, and friendly icons. Other than the lack of graphics, it’s an amazing app for getting from point A to B. It also needs the ability to download maps so you can use it offline. Thanks
  • Great App!

    This app is amazing. I use it for almost everything i do. I use for doing reconnaissance work such as taking a screen shot and then drawing in the sea wire, Vic, guard positions. I also use it for almost all of my route planning. The only improvement i would like to see is if i could actually draw on the terrain in app then having to use another app to do it. Other than that the maps are always up to day and have absolute precision on grids. The arrow can be shaky at time. But that’s why you always use a compass. Other than that highly recommended this app and will continue to use it. RLTW

    This app is an absolute steal for the price. If it ever comes out for Apple Watch you’ve got a more capable GPS at 1/20th of the price.

    MiL GPS is an excellent tool to help navigate in compliment with a military map. The issue I have is the lost of a supporting map in the areas with not cellphone connectivity. I will give them five stars if I can download the maps on my phone.

    Been a loyal customer for more than 5 years and I’ve been selling it ever since. The disclaimer you have to acknowledge when starting the app aside; I can’t count the number of times I’ve used this app to keep myself or others out of harms way. Too easy to use- I’d like to see this app get officially approved by the military.
