Land Nav Assistant accepts MGRS (Military Grid) or Latitude / Longitude coordinates and visually navigates you to each point.
This app was designed with Army, Marine, and other military personnel in mind. Use it to correct your Land Nav technique by analyzing your pace count and tendency to veer left and right.
Available Input: 8 digit MGRS, 10 digit MGRS, Lat/Lon decimal, Lat/Lon dms, and map input.
Angles: degrees or mils
Distance: meters/km or feet/miles
Speed: kph or mph
Use the simple arrow interface or map to direct you to your locations. Your distance, direction, speed, and bearing are shown as you navigate.
Long-tap anywhere on the map to get the coordinate for that location. Easily add locations via the Map interface.
Plan your course by ordering points, or use the course optimization tool which will help you calculate the shortest path possible!
Get distance/direction between two points by tapping the path drawn between them.
Satellite, Terrain, Road, and basic Topographic maps show you, your locations, and lets you enter in new ones.
Overlay a 1000m or 100m MGRS grid anywhere on the map.
Displays distance/direction from your currentl location to all points, or between any two points.
Download your Locations as a spreadsheet to save anywhere, or to share with anyone you choose.

DO NOT use this application while learning Land Navigation. Land Navigation is a valuable skill, and should be mastered before using this application. Do not rely solely on this application for navigation, especially when lost. Always be aware of your surroundings.

Ratings and Reviews
1st Time rating an app in 5 years of using App Store
Awesome app, saved me on the land Nav course. Would definitely recommend for ROTC, army purposes like setting up points. It even has an arrow that points in your point direction and displays the distance. Would definitely recommend
Works perfectly in the field
Only thing I would request is that the app only uses location when the app is open, not all the time. Right now it's either all the time or not at all
Easy to use
Needed to quickly plot about 20 points to verify land Nav course. Other resources were not time friendly. Pretty accurate location And compass. Point mapping Was the best part
