Great potential

I actually use apps like this in the field and test their accuracy for ranging targets for precision engagements on tactical operations in the law enforcement arena. I look for map ruler features to range targets based on GPS locks. It's never perfect but it has been getting better for operational applications. Yes milling with a mildot master is great, but I like having several options. This app has become my new range buddy (with the pin dropping feature that provides distance) so I can test it out and so far I'm pleased with it. Odds are I won't take my phone out for navigation unless I want to check my routes in a RON to transfer to my map, but this app no doubt simplifies it. So far the only changes I'd like to see is to trash the digi homescreen background or switch to a multicam - or provide optional camo for fun. Also the light button would be awesome if it activated the iPhone 4's LED. I'll be testing the app more, but I definitely recommend it.

New Version ruins a great app


I've used this app since its introduction. It has been extremely useful in the field. "Unclassified bar" seems like a waste of screen real estate, but it's forgivable for an otherwise excellent tool. Keep up the improvements.

It would be useful to have waypoint route calculations based on a programmable/custom rate of progress -- handy for planning purposes. You could also add in rough calculations for foot, vehicular-ground, helo, air, and sea/amphib that take into account any available environmental data.

Great app. Couldn't ask for more


I am a professional skydiver, and former military man. Using this app makes my job so much easier. I can place pins where I am taking off from and where I am landing at. Comparing elevation offsets and doing real time distance and direction can at times literally be a life saver. The different unit values and display functions would really come in handy for anyone trying to compare lat/longs to the MGRS system.

This is the first review I've written for an app. Good job guys.
