    Until I joined the military I didn’t need anything like this but wow this has made my life easier. Quick grids when needed, reference points for locations, easy sharing to any other app; this app has it all. But now I use it to go off the trail exploring as well, and it’s effortless.
  • Awesome

    Takes time to use, but has saved my squad and I more than once when our DAGR crapped out.
  • Needs a low light option

    The app needs a low light option. Probably all red light and limit access to imagery in such a mode. Also, it would be great if it could cash maps/imagery for offline use. Other then those two suggestions this is a solid app!
  • Excellent, but....

    No iPod availability? Is it a hardware issue? They have GPS as far as I’m tracking....

    Strong app that does exactly what’s asked of it, can be hard to change plotted points or revolve them but that’s my only gripe
  • Great app!!!

    I’m on a fire department search and rescue team. I use this app in conjunction with a rhino gps unit. I’m very pleased with it and it’s functionality.

    I haven’t had any issues with the app so far. The UI is very simple once you play around with it for a little bit. Overall all it’s a great navigational app for conducting any type of land navigation.
