Land Nav Assistant accepts MGRS (Military Grid) or Latitude / Longitude coordinates and visually navigates you to each point.
This app was designed with Army, Marine, and other military personnel in mind. Use it to correct your Land Nav technique by analyzing your pace count and tendency to veer left and right.
Available Input: 8 digit MGRS, 10 digit MGRS, Lat/Lon decimal, Lat/Lon dms, and map input.
Angles: degrees or mils
Distance: meters/km or feet/miles
Speed: kph or mph
Use the simple arrow interface or map to direct you to your locations. Your distance, direction, speed, and bearing are shown as you navigate.
Long-tap anywhere on the map to get the coordinate for that location. Easily add locations via the Map interface.
Plan your course by ordering points, or use the course optimization tool which will help you calculate the shortest path possible!
Get distance/direction between two points by tapping the path drawn between them.
Satellite, Terrain, Road, and basic Topographic maps show you, your locations, and lets you enter in new ones.

Works perfectly in the field
Only thing I would request is that the app only uses location when the app is open, not all the time. Right now it's either all the time or not at all
Smoked a few land navigation courses with this little app haha And it’s great for hiking, hunting, or off-roading. Just be cognizant of your data. If you’re in a bad reception area, your location on the map tends to lag then quickly catch up, giving you a bad day.
This app is very functional but some improvements are welcome
First off kudos to you, the app works flawless, but here are some list of improvements , my job is dealing with maps so here are my wishes
When getting location it would be nice if you made the app collect points continuously, for improving the accuracy , specially if you are in the woods, sometimes you could get faulty readings but, if let's say you stay in one spot and take points for about a minute and average them out it would be much more accurate, currently I don't think there is a app that does this
Another is the compass, it would be nice if it showed you what was the azimuth to your next point from you current location and I would like the option for full screen.
It would be wonderful I the app would show speed, and the path traveled
When entering mgrs it would be nice to have 3 boxes one for current zone , then the others for x and y , which will make it much simpler when entering them
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
