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

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!

Satellite, Terrain, Road, and basic Topographic maps show you, your locations, and lets you enter in new ones.
