Land Nav Assistant App Description & Overview
Land Nav Assistant accepts MGRS (Military Grid) or Latitude / Longitude coordinates and visually navigates you to each point.

Simple arrow interface directs you to your point. In addition, your distance, direction, speed, and bearing are shown as you navigate.
Satellite map view shows all your points, and let you add new ones.
Displays distance/direction from your currently location to all points.
Export your list of points to a spreadsheet for personal use.

This app uses the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) and Latitude / Longitude.

Would be perfect
By Trey Montana
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!
Would like to edit points and change colors of pins. 5 stars.

Used this both before deployment and during. Works really well. Was able to pull up coordinates faster than my dagr, and got me to every point I needed.
Punch in the grid and your off. Gets you were your going with ease. Would recommend to anyone for assistance with land Nav.
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.
It's a great compliment to the knowledge you should already have with regards to land nav.
Easy to use. Would buy again.

Good app was able to find all my points and used it twice with no problems. Highly recommend app for landnav course.
Works really well for the money you pay for it.
It's ok but.....
I'm pretty darn good at land navigation but wasn't in the mood for it. So I downloaded this app...it's easy to use and it found 3 out of 4 of my points, but it left me stranded on my last point. Had me going in circles. I had to revert back to my trusty compass. So this is why I give y'all a 3 out of 5.
Works perfectly every time couldn't be happier
Definitely worth 5 stars for a free app
Works better than a DAGR! One improvement I would recommend is to put maps on there. Lots of them available free via USGS
