Apple Watch interfacing

Any chance you can add functionality with Apple Watch users? Would be great to view and track waypoints right from my wrist! Thanks!

Great app for military

This app is awesome. Military should just provide this to Soldiers instead of all the really expensive stuff they have. Worth every penny. UI could be a little more user friendly, but with a little practice, its fairly easy to learn.

great app. brilliant.

Useful, easy to use. Could be useful be able to toggle from lat and lon to mil grid coordinates when on the map.

Garmin and a DAGR

But even easier to use.


I work in the Kuwaiti desert where I may have to navigate at night over long distances. Anybody that has ever had to navigate in the desert knows what a challenge it can be, especially at night. This app is by far the best land nav tool out there. When properly setup and calibrated, the accuracy is on par with a dedicated GPS. I have verified it against several GPSs and it has always been within 10-15 meters of the intended point versus the GPS. I highly recommended it. However, as a word of caution, to ensure the best accuracy take the time and select the correct settings. If you are using MilGPS in the MGRS mode as I do, and you are using it in conjunction with a military map, be sure to select magnetic north versus the defaulted true north setting.

Solid app

Deadly app for navigation and reconnaissance. Would be much better if more detailed elevation overlay was added

A real must have

This is by far the best military gps (mgrs) app on the market. Outstanding for use both in the field and when conducting land nav
