App Description

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. Displays distance/direction from your currentl location to all points, or between any two points. Download your Locations as a spreadsheet to save anywhere, or to share with anyone you choose. Import a large set of locations via the web import utility, available at: https://www.gammonapplications.com/land-navigation-services/import This app uses the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) and Latitude / Longitude. Choose to display your locations as MGRS 10-digit, MGRS 8-digit, or LatLon Decimal. D:M:S can be input in the format DD:MM:SS followed by the appropriate direction (NSWE). Default direction is N, W. DO NOT use this application while learning Land Navigation. Land Navigation is a valuable skill, and should be mastered before using this application. Do not rely solely on this application for navigation, especially when lost. Always be aware of your surroundings.

  • 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
  • iOS 11

    I really enjoy having this application and I use it a lot being in the military, and it has never failed me! Please update your app to 64-bit so when the new iOS comes out. I can still use it. You don't have to do anything else, just upgrade that one part lol

    Would be perfect if they had Apple Watch capabilities. I don't like having to pull out the phone. I would rather just use my watch. Please add this feature! I still love this app though. It's awesome
  • NEEDS TO BE UPDATED!!!

    I like this app but is now incompatible with the new iOS 10! I can't verify my points anymore by tapping on the pins! Please fix!! It's a paid app and customers shouldn't have to go through these issues!

    Very basic very simple very easy to use. Was exactly what I was looking for. Set waypoints or locations and with no internet service will tell you the heading you need to use to get there.
