What's New in Version 3.5.2
BUG AND PERFORMANCE FIXES:
* Fixed performance issue on iPhone 4 and 4S
* Fixed Trailing 0 issue on GTG screen
* Misc. tweaks
I got the opportunity to use this app on a training exercise and saw the potential for its application in the military. It is an amazing tool that can quickly replace current digital tactical devices/programs. The drawing tool I used allowed me to draw basic military graphics and place some unit icons on the map. It also allowed me to gauge distances between me and other known points. It was extremely accurate with pinpointing my location to within 3 meters. The potential for this app in a future digital Army is virtually limitless! Platoon leaders can conduct briefings on their iPhones and share the graphics with their squad leaders. This can also have applications in paintball matches or Airsoft wars, or just the basic hunter/trekker uses as well. Great app and I look forward to using it in the future over and over again!
Still a stellar app!
After over a year of use, this app still comes in handy for a variety of different things that I do (Deer hunting, hiking, camping, etc.). I just emailed the developer about when an update was coming out, and he got back to me with 20 minutes! I've never had a developer of an app get back to me in less than a day, let alone 20 minutes. Still a superb application for all things relating to navigation, and the customer service really is top notch.
For $5.99, you can find other apps that do similar things, but I still love the ease of use of TACNAV and what it offers to users like me. 5-stars all the way!!!
Drawing mode is friggin’ awesome and I’ve been waiting for this update for awhile. Still crashes sometimes when I open up the military graphics, but hopefully that’ll be taken care of soon. Great update!
