    Love this app. I have used it for multiple mission planning phases. Very easy to use and edit waypoints. Map data is extremely detailed. I only wish that you could make routes by connecting lines in between checkpoints. That would make this app perfect.
  • Great for CA desert Jeep trails

    I used this app last year with my iPhone. It was difficult because of the screen size. Now that it is on my iPad it is simply fantastic. I've already identified several Jeep trails I never knew about. Can't beat the price.
  • Used to support command and staff during land nav

    We used this to use the over lays and screen shot the areas for a make up land nav course. It worked amazingly as a tool.

    Great app, very intuitive, flexible, and good documentation. Would love to see ability to display course, distance, time, and speed between to points. Mark time when each point is dropped to determine the speed you traveled between each point.

    Compared to the two GPS apps that I have used often (LandNav and Spyglass), MilGPS immidietly seems superior and best suited for my military training purposes. Readout is HUGE and responsive and I will probably stick with the default look. Maps come up quickly and it was easy to customize (Apple/Google are adequete, but more map choices would be great). Design layout could be slightly improved by having more intuitive button placements (e.g., Edit Screen is hiding in the Share menu, and cancel button was hard to find on one screen), and maybe a bug: Navigate → Share → Choose Destination Waypoint took me to Overlays (I'm probably missing something). Ideally, I would like a mini-app to quickly send an 8-digit grid to the clipboard and close, since I share locations often—every step out in the field counts. For my purposes, MilGPS makes sharing an 8-step process (i.e., Open → Share → Share Current Location → Message → Tap x2 in message field → Select All → Isolate MGRS grid → Tap ⌫). MilGPSs is more intuitive than LandNav, but it would be nice to simply 3D touch a readout and send custom data to the clipboard. Future updates perhaps? Not sure why it took me so long to find this in the App Store. Downloaded USNG first, and then found MilGPS via 'Also by This Developer' in the sidebar. Kudos to all those who helped develop this app, good job!

    Great app it really helps me with my work. The only thing I would like to ask is I would like to be able to draw. Maybe in the future that could be an option. Also can someone teach me how to upload this data to ARCGIS
  • Best GPS ever

    Not too many words are needed. I will never use another GPS as long as I have MilGPS... nothing is easier, or more efficient

    This App does everything you would want from a gps app. It's simple to use and there are four map style to use from that utilize apple maps or google maps. Tech support is amazing. I wrote with some suggestions to improve the app and received a personal response in days. They worked hard to answer my questions and made sure I was satisfied with the product. Don't let the price deter you from purchasing this app. This is by far the best money I've spent on the App Store.
