Great app

IMO a little complicated to use. A lot of great features once you figure out how to use them. The app is only as good as your phone’s GPS bare that in mind. In land nav, generally, it will get you to about 5-10m of where you’re going. I would recommend this app.

Wow

So far I’m impressed with the amount of detail and data this app can help you with. Haven’t used for advanced marking or waypointing yet but when it comes to positioning yourself ANYWHERE on Earth this is the app to get.

Great App

I’m in the military and this has been a very helpful app with what I’m doing now. It would be five stars if I could make more in depth graphic overlays such as phase lines, objectives and all military essential symbols. But as I said it works great and I’ve even stopped using my wrist gps most the time and started using this.

Needs off-line maps...

I need an app that I can go in the back country outside of cell service and still use google maps offline. Please add off-line google maps and I will give this a 5 star rating.
