Ratings and Reviews
The most recent updates have restored lost functionality and fixed bugs that caused the app to crash. It works great and is worth the money!
Uses GPS always no during use only
Why this app needs to always use your GPS location even when the app is closed I don't know but it does. Fix this and I'll rate higher.
Does exactly what I needed! Well worth 99 cents!!
This is certainly worth a buck! You may not always be within range of a cell phone signal, but you're almost always visible to GPS. As a soldier with an iPhone, this application gives me an easy way to find my 10 digit grid coordinate anywhere I am in the world. I hit the "present location" button, then "convert". The bottom of the list has the map designator (two letters) and grid coordinates to the meter (10 digit- but watch the accuracy since commercial GPS is usually only good to 30 meters). As a plus, there's a button to verify my location on Google maps (when there's an Internet or cell connection).
I may not always have a DAGR or PLUGR (military GPS), but I've always got my iPhone in my pocket. Now I've always got my grid coordinates, degree of precision, and elevation. iPhones in Iraq and Afghanastan? This app's for you!
