Extremely useful for military training. Easy to use and worth it for the $12
Program very good The program is very wonderful of the best programs and the accuracy and clarity of the lack of option 1 Drawing on the map signs and paths and arrows and geometric shapes and continuous lines or intermittent 2 Draw a path behind the cart or walk a foot and become the first competitor
I love this app! Perfect for military applications.
The app is very useful and has multiple benefits. Easy graphics and settings Definitely a great tool.
This app has so many good features it is hard to summarize. The location and navigation screens are completely customizable display of the fields, location/size and units. (10 stars). The map screen allows you to choose the type of map to display (street / hybrid / satellite). (5 stars) The overlay screen allows you to organize waypoints however the waypoints are difficult to choose to navigate and you must be careful not to accidentally edit/delete the waypoint when selecting to navigate to the point. (3 stars). The settings screen should allow for a default for waypoint navigation screen (e.g. map or navigate screen). (4.9 stars). I have used many of the GPS apps in the App Store. This is the best. A few minor enhancements would make the app perfect. This is a must have app for hikers or navigating in an unfamiliar city.
Es una aplicación que tiene mucha versatilidad y los mapas que muestra tienen mucha actualidad y detalles suficientes para ubicarnos y navegar con seguridad.
Must have app if you are training in the field.
I have everyone in my unit jealous of the power of this app. I would gladly purchase it again if I had to.
Bought this app a few years ago and still use it daily.
I have been an army field artillery (HiMARS) For 18 years when you’re constantly moving this is your best friend especially with the satellite imaging and ability to mark points anywhere without having to download Maps and all that this is definitely well worth the money
