Straight forward, no frills app

This is the epitome of a “keep it simple stupid” (KISS) MGRS/Nav app! I am happy with the money I spent, this will be really helpful for on and off duty activities. Great to help with general planning, orientation, recreational navigation, and assisting with training. This app is five stars if it had a corresponding iWatch app.

Good for military or other uses

This map has a good layout that doesn’t take too long to figure out. It allows you to utilize “overlays” which means you can create permanent overlays that you can always leave on or you can create a new overlay for a training exercise and then turn it off when your done and remove the points. The pay version isn’t expensive a d if you’re going to use it a lot then I would highly recommend paying for it. Additionally they have multiple shapes and colors you can use to make points unique and you can further specialize them by naming them and adding descriptions. A cool feature I didn’t realize existed was that you can send overlays you’ve created to people with the map. This means if you’re going into a new training area then someone can send you their overlays or you can help someone out and do the same. Overall it’s well designed, easy to use and you can get pretty specific with points. There’s also a moveable scale so you can figure out the exact distance and direction between 2 points. Overall I love the app and use it every time I go into the field. Some features I wouldn’t mind seeing are: - lines to connect points so that you could construct boundaries. I would use this to form the boundaries of training areas and impact areas. - the ability to change the direction of the ruler from degrees to Mils.

***///QUESTION FOR THE DEVELOPER///***

Is there a way to utilize downloaded maps with MilGPS in such a way that we can use them offline? For instance, with Google Maps you can download maps and use them for when you are without mobile internet. I really like this app but the area I typically use it in has sketchy LTE and it severely degrades the usability.

Small improvements

This is absolutely a great App, ive been using the app for around 10 years and even after trying different apps that are similar i still end up coming back to this app. I use the app significantly while hiking but also during training in the military because the app is easier to use and more reliable than ATAK. A few things that i believe would improve it would be offline maps, topographic and google/apple maps. This would just make navigation easy with or without cell service. Being able to download even just sections of a map, topographic and google/apple maps, would be perfect and not take up as much space on the device. A significant issue that i have seen was when zooming in on the topographic maps the contour lines disappear when you zoom in close to an area. This makes it challenging to choose the best route or see what terrain youre getting into. Another nice to have feature would be the ability to make routes. Having this would make long distance navigation significantly easier. Thank you for your time and for making this incredibly reliable app, its been a huge asset both on hikes and also at work. Ian

Great app

Easy to learn how to use. Easy to enter new locations. Really like the overlays that allow you to name the overlay and place specific locations in that overlay. This is useful if you hunt different sections of land and want to group those stands you have in each area.
