Can you make this app available on Apple Watch?
This is amazing. It’s better than tacnav and is the best app/software I’ve ever seen in the us military or civilian world for navigation or planning. It’s intuitive, ergonomic, good looking, and just flat out easy to use. I highly recommend this app.
Excellent tool to have as a backup. Wish they made a companion app for the Apple Watch. Or even just a complication to show current grid on watch or a steer-to.
Love this app. Used it for over a year now In the military. I would give it a 5 star if it had offline maps.
Everything you can ever need for landnav or hunting. I would think about adding a couple things to make it even better though. 1 It would be cool if you could draw on the map 2 if MilGPS could be on your applewatch, like your heading and current position.
I’ve used this for many years, best ever, better than falconview on the fly, honestly if it could have a better overlay like hawgview, you could charge 20$ for the app
I have been using this app since around March of 2016 (it’s now January 2020) and I have never had a single problem with it. If you’re in the military this is a MUST-HAVE because it will do everything you need a gps to do plus more. And the different active layers is also helpful so you don’t have to much clutter in one area. Definitely worth the couple bucks I spent on it years ago.
Use in the field as a secondary reference. You can plot points, get grids, and reference terrain within the area.
Switched to iPhone just for this app. As an OPS NCOIC in an IBCT, maps and graphics are used constantly. This is a quick way to to plot mgrs points and share or prints maps . Need topo option
