  • Many non-military uses

    I’m in law enforcement, and I can use this quick and accurate app to place a pin on a target location and send it to others in a second to all get on the same page. Can also use it for hiking, walking, kayaking, .... several different uses. Fast and helpful.

    Just downloaded the Tactical NAV App! What a great tool to have at your disposal. Any hard charging Marine or Army grunt needs to own their battle space and get this tool! I’ve only played with it for a few hours, wish this would have been available when we hiked the Appalachia trail!
  • Best app I have ever used so close to perfect

    By tactical trainer reaper
    I got this app cause I instruct certain types of recon work for a few agencies and this app is just like or as close to exactly what the military uses. It is simple and real accurate in satellite mode. Placing pins and points with lat and long is super easy and even making LZ and DZ is a breeze. Now if you don’t understand this lingo then don’t give this app a bad review. Educate yourself and make your self familiar with the terms and pictographs used and you will love this app as much as I. If your looking for an app that will be spot on and ready when you are then your at the right app. 5/17/18 I want to update my last review. THIS IS THE BEST APP FOR FIRST RESPONDERS AND SEARCH AND RESCUE. At 03:30 I was on a search and rescue looking for a woman and her child who’s car was swept away by raging water durning a severe storm and using this app I was able to fast grid and use my exact coordinates to get the chopper to is for swift evac. This IS THE BEST APP on the market. I not only RECOMMEND this app as of today I am going to require my entire squad to use it. Thanks.

    Best gps app yet and has more features as well as accuracy then any app I’ve ever used! I recommend this app to everyone who is looking for quality and features not offered in any other apps around, even for those who are not too advanced in map reading this app will help you learn more then you could ever imagine.
  • Best Tactical app hands down

    By Ardy1019
    First off, I personally know the developer, who I served along side with in the military, and would never put out anything substandard. This app has been tested and actually used in real combat all around the world by different militaries not only the US. If you are looking for anything tactical, this is the app for you. If would like something added or change, email the developer and he will do everything to make it happen. There are other apps out there that do the same, but this was made by a combat veteran for combat applications. For the price of a few tacos, you can upgrade your phone to a combat targeting platform. Try it out, you won’t be sorry.
  • First look seems solid

    By TxStMaverick
    After initial digging around in the app, it looks like it’s going to be great. Seems useful, accurate, and has some great features. I particularly like the inclusion of NATO Joint Military Symbology. Looking forward to putting it through full paces in my next land nav course!
