Land nav / coordinate generation

Great App, I've only briefly started using it. But at first glance it does everything I was looking for: convert coordinate formats, distance & bearing, set waypoints with descriptions.

Things I'd like to see in future versions: ability to choose between magnetic north and true north for bearing calculations (and display them as a map feature even if working on another item), more distance and coordinate systems, ability to display multiple distance formats at the same time (i.e. Elevation in feet and meters), and lastly the ability to hard set distances (i.e. I only want to see distance in nautical miles even if measurement is less than 1 nm, or meters even if greater than 1km).

Overall great program I look forward to future updates. Highly recommended!!

Updates are expensive

I got this app almost 5 years ago for a small price and it was an absolutely wonderful app to use. It provided almost every type of navigational means to get you from point A to point B and plan a good route. IT WAS PERFECT. However, they made an update where you had to pay 15 dollars just to keep your right to continue to do the same thing you have been doing for 5 years. I thought "hey I really need this app for work and it's only 15 dollars" so I bought the update for 15 dollars. not a single month later they do the same exact thing and now say I have to pay 30 dollars to be able to use this app! They have become money grubbing people!!! DO NOT USE THIS APP. They are taking advantage of all the people who have become dependent on this app. Don't support these inconsiderate bullies.

Thanks for taking this into consideration before buying this app.

Really Excellent

Refers to an IAP, but purchase option not found in app or in AppStore description. Presumably that's coming.

Everything I want is there; I just needed to get familiar with the app. A little clicking on the various features and I was good to go.

I'm very pleased with it and recommend it to anyone who just wants to do some casual location mapping without taking a course in GIS.
