    Great App to use for exact locations.

    The only thing this app is missing is the ability to draw a simple line and list Julian date. If I could do that this would be a 5 star app! Never fails me.
  • Best GPS APP TO DATE! Worth every cent!

    This is by far the best app I have ever paid for. If you have service and your navigating the same terrain often-buy this app immediately. This App needs to be compatible with APPLE WATCH SERIES 3!
  • Best Phone GPS App

    I use MilGPS monthly to plan and practice land navigation. A great feature is the datum conversions all listed out under the waypoint. It cuts down on mistakes and makes it easier to communicate position to others who may be operating off other map sets or GPS systems. I would like to see an option to make 1:24,000 topos the map base. 5 stars if that happens.
  • Poor UI workflows

    The work flows to input a grid coordinate and pull it up on the map by typing the coordinates in, are difficult to find and require too many steps to pull off. Seeing as how that’s one of the primary tasks when operating a GPS, I suggest the developers rethink the UX/UI of the workflows for that particular function. Other than that, it shows where you’re at accurately and clearly. Good for use in immediate surrounding area assessments, but aside from that, I couldn’t recommend it to anyone as it currently stands.
  • Almost there

    Great app. It will be a perfect app as soon as they find distributors to authorize the offline maps.
  • Absolutely love it.

    Thank you. Thank you to everyone that invested time, energy, and effort into the creation of this app, making it one of, if not the most used app on my phone. Please keep up with either the updates, or making sure it is compatible with future versions of iOS, I was not joking when I said one of the most used apps, I use it for everything from business to personal life. I love it. Thank you.
  • Great App, Needs iWatch Support

    Once you get used to this app it does everything I can imagine you would need for land Nav and plotting points. I’m Army SF cadre and I use this all the time. The only small thing I would like to be able to do is edit the names of the locations when you drop a point on your crosshairs from the map screen instead of having to go into the overlays. That’s a small thing. Overall I’d say it’s worth the $$
