    Great app. It will be a perfect app as soon as they find distributors to authorize the offline maps.
  • Absolutely love it.

    Thank you. Thank you to everyone that invested time, energy, and effort into the creation of this app, making it one of, if not the most used app on my phone. Please keep up with either the updates, or making sure it is compatible with future versions of iOS, I was not joking when I said one of the most used apps, I use it for everything from business to personal life. I love it. Thank you.
  • Great App, Needs iWatch Support

    Once you get used to this app it does everything I can imagine you would need for land Nav and plotting points. I’m Army SF cadre and I use this all the time. The only small thing I would like to be able to do is edit the names of the locations when you drop a point on your crosshairs from the map screen instead of having to go into the overlays. That’s a small thing. Overall I’d say it’s worth the $$

    Great app, accuracy is spot on
  • Lacks a simple function

    All I want is an app that will let me plug in an MGRS grid and have it navigate me there. Apparently you can’t do that in this app and I feel like I just wasted 10 dollars. This app has potential but I can’t recommend it to anyone because you simply can’t plug in a grid coordinate
  • Great App
