Tactical NAV was created by an U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who was deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). While deployed, he saw a need for an MGRS-focused smartphone application that every Soldier and service-member in the world could utilize -- something the Department of Defense wasn't taking advantage of despite their massive budget of hundreds of billions of dollars. The original intent behind the app was to create a low-cost, accurate, and effective mobile navigational solution for military service-members that was built for accuracy. It allows users to pinpoint their location with precision accuracy, and acquire an MGRS/UTM/BNG/LAT-LONG coordinate to any location, anywhere in the world. Its performance is on par with the AN/PSN 13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) and has been tested and used in combat. It has also been evaluated against other software systems the DOD uses such as CPOF, BFT, and other targeting solutions the Pentagon utilizes for target acquisition. FEATURES: - Military quality GPS tactical navigation system - WGS 84 standard and includes MGRS, UTM, BNG and USNG - Sandtable drawing mode (In app purchase) - Navigation mode - Scalable gridlines with grid designators - Waypoint plotting functionality with military graphics - Location and waypoint sharing via email, text and Facebook with other users - Compass “FastLock” function for capturing quick azimuths - Quickly swipe between various types of coordinate and location data - Camera mode with data displayed in real-time and photo stamping capability - One-button night mode function for low-light situations - "Go to Grid" option for pinpoint planning and drawing of overlays - Tested in combat to ensure utmost accuracy and reliability - And much more!!! MEDIA COVERAGE: Featured in the Army Times, BBC, CNN, CBS News, FOXNEWS, MSNBC, the DailyMail, the NY Times, and many more! =================== Bottom line, Tactical NAV puts the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), the British National Grid (BNG), Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), and the United States National Grid (USNG) at your disposal. Yes, you can now finally access the same resources used by the U.S. military and NATO armed forces. And it's just as accurate as anything the U.S. government and NATO uses today. Soldiers and service-members will appreciate how TACNAV can help them in the field. Map, plot, photograph, and share navigational points with other users. Find your way back to an observation post, employ the night mode function for easier viewing in the dark, and switch quickly between different types of coordinate data and take advantage of the camera mode for real-time and photo stamping capabilities, and build overlays for mission planning, too. Everything you need is here, and has been extensively tested for accuracy in the remote mountains of Kunar Province, Afghanistan, during combat operations. Tactical NAV is on par with many of the GPS devices used by Soldiers and service-members today, and is just as accurate as devices (referencing the DAGR) costing thousands of dollars. Do yourself a favor. Download Tactical NAV now and put a portable, military-quality tactical-navigation software solution to work for you. IMPORTANT NOTES: Tactical NAV is not endorsed by the Department of Defense nor should it be used in combat situations in place of a government issued device.




  • Great product

    By kh_longblade
    I downloaded this app when it first came out and have been super excited and happy for all the updates. You can use this app in the field or on the street. It’s user friendly and the interface is pretty simple to understand. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who enjoys a good GPS.
  • What an update!’n

    By HowitzerM777
    Holy smokes ... I wasn’t expecting this update! This is now the BEST military app on the App Store. Period.
  • Multipurpose navigation

    By TheCornYeti
    This app is everything I’ve been looking for, I can use it for work purposes and recreational as well, I do a lot of hunting and snowmobiling in my free time and I can count on this app to help me no matter where I’m at.
  • Great App

    As a reservist I’ve found this app makes life easy for planning and AARs. Taking photos that include grids and the ability to create overlays are fantastic.
  • Needs updates ASAP

    By Scoobydoo05
    I purchased the premium so I can create overlays but after a few years it’s asking me to purchase it again. Also Needs an update ASAP
  • Unparalleled

    By JayG9500
    I have been utilizing cutting edge moving map software in my job for nearly 10 years. TacticalNav is by far the best open source moving map app available for iOS. You will not find the level of imagery clarity and accuracy anywhere else on the app store. The features embedded within the app are extremely user-friendly and continue to improve over time. This app is 100% designed from the ground up to aid in rapid grid/coordinate determination, and allows you to route plan and terrain associate unlike any other open source app available. You would need to download 3 other apps to do what TacticalNav can do. I highly encourage the use of this app. -JTAC Instructor

    I use this App on a regular basis. Extremely accurate and easy to use for anyone. I originally got this app to use during my hunting trips, but I end up using this app during my sales calls throughout the week.
  • The BEST

    By SouthCentralPatriots
    5/5 the best navigation app available
  • City use / Hiking uses

    By Luminox4
    This app isn’t just deployable to war zones! I am a prior Army Sergeant who loves to go out into the wild and I don’t always grab my Garmin but I always have my phone! With this app I can feel at ease knowing I have the technology to find my way out of the thick of it if I get turned around! The map is as easy to view as those such as google and maps by Apple. If you are in city limits there is even store names and very detailed mapping of the area streets and side alleys! On the military side of this, the owner takes the lives of Soldiers very serious and created this to ensure those lobbing rounds down range had the best tool available to ensure call for fire was as accurate as possible to ensure the lives lost were the intended targets and to ensure those who called it in got the protection they needed! He didn’t create this app just for a dollar sign, he would put the lives saved and protected by the accuracy of his app over any amount of money, that’s the kind of guy who is putting his life into this! “What is the sound of artillery”
  • Very impressive with unlimited potential.

    Having worked in the combat arms community for many years now, as well as training the next generation, I can say this program is needed and has potential to help many service members conduct anything from land navigation, to fire support planning. The creator is reaching out to service members every day asking how to improve the program, so it can better assist them down range. I’ve tested this app anywhere from desert to jungle, and it continues to perform. Excited to see what else is in store for this exciting application.
