Tactical NAV - GPS Navigation App For Military and First Responders Reviews

Kodiak 225_27

No update No problem  Kodiak 225_27  4 star

This app provides accurate MGRS coordinates to the user the update may be late but it still provides excellent NAV functions for the price.


So worth the price  FenderCustomShopStraticaster  5 star

Okay, so I am writing this review from the perspective of an Artillery guy. Bottom line, this is app is insanely accurate and does what it says what it will do. How Many apps out there, other than military devices, will get you within 2-5 meters of a location? Kinda crazy actually. So worth the price.


Where's the promised app update  Mercmedic  3 star

The app has great potential. We were promised an update over a year ago from the developer. The update was supposed to include the ability to plot routes via distance and direction from any given chosen point the navigator chose. Never happened. As a tactician it needs to have the ability to plot maneuverability and give simple "x" your here, you need to go to "y" but maybe "z" to "y" is a better tactical option in your planning phase. Currently.. you can't get there from here! Needs that update as promised. However I believe they have abandoned ship!


Best App of its kind on the Market  Hooah01  5 star

This App is Amazing in One word. Not only has it already saved military members lives, but it makes firing artillery from a cell phone and not a thousand dollar piece of crap that barley worked. Also I have found this VERY helpful in other aspects of life. I also use it to help with my outdoor activities. All in all I couldn't be happier.

Don't get this. Get MILGPS  Jennifer Lawrence’s Husband  1 star

The interface is near impossible to use. Good concept bad app. MILGPS is more like a Garmin and a DAGR. This is trying to be a JCR but is just as confusing and not required to learn how to use.

Ian Carver

Disappointed  Ian Carver  1 star

There's nothing more frustrating then spending your money on a product that is hyped up as being a top notch item, only to find it doesn't work like it says it does. In this case, the app will not give me exact locations utilizing UTM coordinates. Instead it simply puts me in the corner of both east/north grids. I tried everything else to get it to work, but no luck. Even more frustrating is sending questions for help to the support address via the app and email and being told the app support is no longer in effect and my emails go unanswered. This was supposed to be used for rural operations at work, but instead I got to spend money on a junk app that doesn't work and no support. There are better apps out there, I am sure of it. Don't buy this ripoff.


Ok at best  MIKEY Gren  2 star

It's an OK app. Doesn't offer satellite view, and also doesn't allow you to search known locations. Also, small trails disappear when you slightly zoom out making it impossible to do even short to moderate length movements. I have buyers remorse...

Nasibullah Hamidi

Good one but can be better  Nasibullah Hamidi  3 star

I just downloaded and played with it for a little bit so far great one other then there is no search window or Option to inter a name of a place and then be able to see that place and once you zoom in with satellite map does clearly show as Google earth or other maps do please fix these two and then I say this is a 5 star app!!!


Superb land navigation app  BubbaDeal  5 star

Drawing mode is my favorite function of this app. In future updates, I would love to be able to navigate waypoints, but for now, the app is really spot-on accurate. Almost more accurate than a DAGR at times.


A stellar app and accurate too!  Really6373  5 star

I've been using this app for years, and TACNAV still comes in handy for a variety of different things that I do (Deer hunting, hiking, camping, etc.). A superb application for all things relating to navigation, and the customer service really is top notch. 5-stars all the way. Airborne and ATW!!!

Great app!  Stroke-Meistersinger  5 star

Bought this for a class project and it worked flawlessly. Very accurate!!!


F.I.X. T.H.E. A.P.P.  JoelCheney  3 star

Go to grid still not working. The iPad app seems to be a "stretched" version of the iPhone app. Three stars solely based on appearance. Will rate after I test in the field. Offline maps would be a great improvement.

Wesley Loflin

Needs to give more, wth!  Wesley Loflin  3 star

Good app. Crashes when i try to enter a grid. Need to be able to create a route.


Crashes with GTG  MrDull  2 star

Crashes when I try the GTG feature.

Rock Solid

Helped me cheat on land nav!  Rock Solid  5 star


Army Staff Sergeant

Desperately needs an update  Army Staff Sergeant  1 star

If I could return Apps I would definitely return this one. Huge waste of money if they don't fix all the glitches. I had this app for about 4 minutes before I wanted to delete it.


Use to be a amazing app  Neonbasschild  1 star

Now sadly it's in need of updating so bad it barely works. Don't buy unless there is a update.

Spencer Fusselman

Needs to be updated!  Spencer Fusselman  3 star

Great concept. But glitchy n2w and gtg make this nearly unusable! If I could get a refund I would. Waste of $$


GTG crashes  War0311  3 star

Thats my only problem with this. Other than that it is a great app.


Great app, maybe some minor adjustments?  Josfox2  4 star

How about a way to dim the screen from inside the app and also, a way to copy your grid location to be able to txt it to a friend? Those two things would make it a 5 star design for me!
