Tactical NAV was created by a U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who was deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). While deployed, he saw a need for an MGRS-focused smartphone application that every Soldier and service-member in the world could utilize -- something the Department of Defense wasn't taking advantage of despite their massive budget of hundreds of billions of dollars. The original intent behind the app was to create a low-cost, accurate, and effective mobile navigational solution for military service-members that was built for accuracy. It allows users to pinpoint their location with precision accuracy, and acquire an MGRS/UTM/BNG/LAT-LONG coordinate to any location, anywhere in the world. Its performance is on par with the AN/PSN 13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) and has been tested and used in combat. It has also been evaluated against other software systems the DOD uses such as CPOF, BFT, and other targeting solutions the Pentagon utilizes for target acquisition. FEATURES: - Military quality GPS tactical navigation system - WGS 84 standard and includes MGRS, UTM, BNG and USNG - Sandtable drawing mode (In app purchase) - Navigation mode - Scalable gridlines with grid designators - Waypoint plotting functionality with military graphics - Location and waypoint sharing via email, text and Facebook with other users - Compass “FastLock” function for capturing quick azimuths - Quickly swipe between various types of coordinate and location data - Camera mode with data displayed in real-time and photo stamping capability - One-button night mode function for low-light situations - "Go to Grid" option for pinpoint planning and drawing of overlays - Tested in combat to ensure utmost accuracy and reliability - And much more!!! MEDIA COVERAGE: Featured in the Army Times, BBC, CNN, CBS News, FOXNEWS, MSNBC, the DailyMail, the NY Times, and many more! =================== Bottom line, Tactical NAV puts the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), the British National Grid (BNG), Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), and the United States National Grid (USNG) at your disposal. Yes, you can now finally access the same resources used by the U.S. military and NATO armed forces. And it's just as accurate as anything the U.S. government and NATO uses today. Soldiers and service-members will appreciate how TACNAV can help them in the field. Map, plot, photograph, and share navigational points with other users. Find your way back to an observation post, employ the night mode function for easier viewing in the dark, and switch quickly between different types of coordinate data and take advantage of the camera mode for real-time and photo stamping capabilities, and build overlays for mission planning, too. Everything you need is here, and has been extensively tested for accuracy in the remote mountains of Kunar Province, Afghanistan, during combat operations. Tactical NAV is on par with many of the GPS devices used by Soldiers and service-members today, and is just as accurate as devices (referencing the DAGR) costing thousands of dollars. Do yourself a favor. Download Tactical NAV now and put a portable, military-quality tactical-navigation software solution to work for you. IMPORTANT NOTES: Tactical NAV is not endorsed by the Department of Defense nor should it be used in combat situations in place of a government issued device.
I spent some time looking for a high quality MGRS app to use in and around the backwoods of the Colorado Rockies and decided to give Tac NAV a try. Really glad I did. Love the features and look forward to getting a lot of use out of the app. Thanks!
This app is such a user-friendly platform where the everyday civilian and soldier can easily access and be provided navigation in simple camping/hiking environments to the most extreme and stressful environments on the battlefield. Within the private sector, this app provides clearer and more concise navigation to civilians in all environments and has been tested and accurately utilized on the hectic streets and alleys of NYC! As a fires intelligence officer, there is no better innovation that is easily and readily available that I would trust more than this app. This app provided our artillery batteries and the chain of command the necessary and critical information to send rounds down range in a timely and most efficient and accurate matter that saved lives! The mission was an overall success by providing clear and concise direction to all commanders on the battlefield to enabling all soldiers to be intelligence agents by providing such critical coordinates and direction to make responsible and life-altering decisions.
This app has continued to exceed any standards by far excellent and accurate the newest updates for offline maps Feature will be huge ! I use this app everywhere I go and have not had a single issue when it comes to recommendations becoming reality , the all around quality of this app is phenomenal compared to every other app there is no comparison to this one.
Regardless of your use, this app is highly accurate and very helpful when living away from home. Efficient and timely, it helps me get from place to place. Love it.
I am a police officer and avid outdoorsman and I have used this app for both. I have use this app for both training and live police operations. Everything from surveillance to warrant execution and it offers comprehensive mapping and target location features. I have use this on camping hiking and canoeing trips and it allows you to mark beginning, middle and end points that are easy to read and easy to share with others in your group. When I had a problem with minor bugs in the operation of the app I emailed Johnathan singer and he replied within minutes. He fully explained the behind the scenes technical work he is currently doing to fix the bugs and assured me that future updates would fix any of these issues. Customer service is absolutely outstanding. I would absolutely recommend this app to anybody with any police, military or outdoors needs!
Great product! I emailed a question about the app and the owner personally emailed me back within minutes. Can’t beat support like that!
There are still issues with this app. Such as the Map marker updating the previous market instead of where your cursor is.
Solid app. If I can make suggestions, maybe have a user manual, label the icons on markers for what they are, and have a button to quickly come back to your location. Still fantastic.
This app is great. From getting the job done to just finding your way around this app is perfect. Multiple features that help make the job that much easier for you. Love the constant updating! Look forward to what’s next.
Just downloaded the app and it looks amazing. Although I am no longer in the Army I can see myself using the shXt out of this app since I love to be in the woods a lot. It it really easy to use thus far. Looking forward to getting real use out of it when out hunting and tracking.
