    This app is the best I have came across as a medic for mapping out ambulance exchange points and MEDEVAC landing zones while in the field.

    This app does everything I need it to, except keep maps when offline and plan routes, which are both in the works. It’s a great way to get all the information you need at a glance, and has a lot of functions with the customization options to match. Updates come regularly and bugs are prettymuch all worked out. Well worth the price.
  • Great app

    I’m in the army and use it all the time for field training. Great up to date satellite images. Well worth the 10$

    I bought this app a few years ago, when I was still in the Army, back then I paid $10. I used it as secondary/backup/check-location-accuracy. Since it was on my phone, it couldn’t be my primary source. My primary source was a wrist Garmin GPS, I would (discreetly) open this app and check my position, both, my Garmin GPS and this app were always on point, may be 1-2 meters off but that’s nothing since we used a 10 meter margin of error. I’ve always loved the satellite image because it allowed us to plan better when picking routes of travel. For a one time payment, the accuracy it has and all the things you can do, $10 is a steal. Highly recommend this app, I have and keep doing it when the subject comes up.

    The only thing this app is missing is the ability to draw a simple line and list Julian date. If I could do that this would be a 5 star app! Never fails me.
  • Best GPS APP TO DATE! Worth every cent!

    This is by far the best app I have ever paid for. If you have service and your navigating the same terrain often-buy this app immediately. This App needs to be compatible with APPLE WATCH SERIES 3!
  • Best Phone GPS App

    I use MilGPS monthly to plan and practice land navigation. A great feature is the datum conversions all listed out under the waypoint. It cuts down on mistakes and makes it easier to communicate position to others who may be operating off other map sets or GPS systems. I would like to see an option to make 1:24,000 topos the map base. 5 stars if that happens.
