MilGPS Pros

LegitLook, it’s not ATAK but for real world use collecting data points for work in the field and working in coordinate formats that are actually useful MilGPS is pretty hard to beat. Data exports work well, the UI is slick, the HUD style display is certainly going to be a familiar and welcome sight if you’re used to using professional GPS units. Really not a whole lot I can find to fault with this app..ReldredVersion: 6.5.4

Awesome AppLove the map integration. Also great for calling in an air strike..D. EdigerVersion: 7.9.3

MilGPS Cons

Good, butA good tool to use especially the detail it provides when using hybrid or satellite view and zoomed in is amazing. With such clarity in detail you can easily look at an area and orientate what your looking at the the actual ground. However some areas the map is scrambled and in hybrid and satellite view and if the area you want to use is in the scrambled section you pretty much on your own wits. Also the map takes ages to load at times and there’s no offline usage, which should be a feature. The overlays are to big when plotted on the map and cove other details of the map, should look at reducing the sizes or add a feature to do so. However the gps is very accurate and the other functions such as being able to change the grid reference from UTM to MGRS or LAT LON is great. I thinks adding on offline feature and improving the map view will make this app one of the top app if not the top app for outdoor navigation..Daps1981Version: 6.7.0

Extremely usefulDoves a lot of navigation issues..Malcolm.LarkinVersion: 6.0.3
