MilGPS - MGRS & USNG Grid GPS for Land Navigation Reviews


Post Hunter  Jennteet  5 star

I hunt all over Texas. This GPS has never let me down and has gotten me back to my truck from seriously treacherous hikes. It's marked my best hunting spots and my favorite wildlife photography areas. Top Notch!


Best App  Iheartthesimpsons  5 star

Literally the best app. I have used it in different countries and this app is amazing. When it gets signal it downloads the map and when you have no signal you can still use the GPS feature. Life saver and amazing app. Worth every penny. Please add the ability to use it with Apple Watch.


CAS  Togaf16  5 star

This app works great. I'm a F-16 FAC(A) and use this app for work. We practice urban CAS for training and this app is exactly what I needed to build my 9 Lines when I was driving around the city playing a JTAC trying to build 9 Lines. Great work!

Mind blown  Marshall 888888  5 star

I'm using the app for planning for a training event, couldn't be more impressed.


Excellent  Musclehead5  5 star

Hands down best app for military purposes. It would be awesome if this could have iwatch app capability IOT have access right there on your wrist.

Incredibly Useful for Mission Planning  John Hamby  5 star

I use this app professionally to plan my patrol routes. It is fantastic. I really wish Cascode Labs would create a Desktop Version. I would buy it in a heart beat!


The Best GPS App There Is!  ArnPoe  5 star

I've used several other GPS apps, and the functionality and straightforward design of MilGPS is hands-down the best I've found. I use the app to mark waypoints at places my girlfriend and I have taken the kids, explored, etc. I'd like to know, however, is there a way to export waypoints/overlays to other mapping applications? I'd like to be able to share this information or view it on another application, like Google Earth Pro, for example. I'd even settle for a spreadsheet or tab-separated file.


MilGPS  MilGPS  5 star

Great App, use it for work and when I go hunting. Well worth the purchase. Future upgrade or update should be able to print from app. Great tool well worth it, have never had a problem with it and I have recommended to many people and they all love it as well.


Great app need more work but fantastic  Jeefwdohxhcjdjeudidjj  5 star

Amazing app love the references and distance marking and altitudes. Wish it could synchronize with other phones to show people on the map for hiking


Game Changer for work  Ricodeltaco  5 star

I'm a geotechnical engineer. I use this for work to locate points from kml files, or even to create my own kml files (I use an online converting tool to go between the gpx format the app uses and the kml format of google earth). I do a lot of field work, and spend a lot of time trying to find stuff: equipment, buried instrumentation, test hole locations, that gate I have the combination for in that annoying 100 mile long fence, etc. Needle in a haystack type stuff. This app is a game changer. Has made my job so much easier. People at work ask me about it all the time.

Best Purchase in a long time!  15Blink15  5 star

Never wrong, multiple uses.


Excellent  JustALoner  5 star

This app is 100% worth the price tag. I'm in the military, I'm a medic with a light artillery unit. When we jump locations to a new firing point the first thing I need to do is establish an HLZ in case we need medevac. I have a Garmin Foretrex 401 that I can use for this purpose but it cost $170.00. For 10.00 this does the exact same thing and it has maps like a regular, handheld gps that would cost over $200.00. The only reason I use the Garmin is to preserve the battery on my phone and because a wrist mounted gps is more convenient when you need both hands while navigating or working on patients. This app turns your phone into a handheld gps for $10.00 and you can't beat that price.


Excellent and uncluttered  bobtheowl2  5 star

The best and cleanest gps app available currently.


Works great!!!!!!  Redman355  5 star

Love it


Off Road  LongRyder  5 star

Good app. Surprising uses in many wilderness situations. Used with a gps enhancement markers for greater accuracy. Looking forward to new additions to the product which will speed its use in the field.


Awesome  Imablue22  5 star

As an Infantryman this app makes taking Land NAV to a whole new level!


Great Apps  Spartan2F6  4 star

This is a great app if they extended to the Apple Watch too. It doesn't work in different countries some place they don't have the layout but still tell you the grind and all. Great App but please make it so we can use it on the Apple Watch


Great app!  Daniel.w.keller  5 star

Works perfect!


Great but not perfect  T33333333333333  4 star

I love the app and won't trade it for another phone based tool but I have 2 criticisms. Maybe I missed a feature but I don't see a way to track my route/path as I explore. Dropping way points manually is not convenient. The other gripe is not having offline maps available. I use the app when a data connection is not available. Cached maps are not sufficient for my needs.


Great app  Mercenary2  3 star

Can you please allow the app the ability to rotate the screen when I turn my phone sideways? Thanks!
