Tactical NAV was created by a U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who was deployed to eastern Afghanistan on his third combat tour with the "Bastogne Brigade" of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).
While in combat, two of his fellow Soldiers were killed fighting in the notorious Pech River Valley of Kunar Province, Afghanistan. Following the memorial services, he prayed and asked for inspiration in finding a way to further help his Soldiers out on the battlefield. After receiving an epiphany during a combat mission, he came back to base and then set out to create an extremely accurate MGRS-focused tactical "app" that every U.S. military service member could utilize at all times. All with the ultimate hope of saving the lives of his fellow service members.
Tactical NAV’s mission is to provide military warfighters a low-cost, extremely accurate, and exceedingly powerful mobile tactical navigational solution.
Our vision is to assist and support our nation’s warfighters with their mobile navigational needs and to further enable them to fight and win in the Multi-Domain Operational (MDO) battlespace.
BUILT FOR ACCURACY:
Tactical NAV allows users to pinpoint their location with precision accuracy, and acquire an MGRS/UTM/BNG/LAT-LONG coordinate to any position on the map, anywhere in the world. Its performance is on par with the AN/PSN 13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR), and the application has been used to accurately and safely deliver conventional and precision-guided munitions (PGM) onto enemy targets in support of combat operations.
Purpose-built by warfighters for warfighters and created to save U.S. military lives, Tactical NAV was the first MGRS-focused tactical app on the App Store and has proven to be effective in both combat and training environments.
Tactical NAV has been successfully evaluated against other targeting devices and software platforms such as JCR, CPOF, ATAK, and BFT, and it comes within 1 to 3 meters of these "officially approved" systems that are issued by the Department of Defense. Currently, Tactical NAV is being used by tens of thousands of U.S. military and NATO personnel worldwide.

True mil spec app
I read that this app was used by the navy seals that raided Osamas compound, and it's easy to see why. Clean GUI, practical functions and super-fast response.
This app in great for hasty planning. The ability to share overlays with other users is excellent.
It’s the best apple app of its kind that I’ve come across.
Crashes upon tapping at current location.
Attempted to use in the field - was absolutely useless.
Emailed "AppDaddy" nearly a month ago. Still no fix.
