What's new in this version (2.3.2):

2.3.2 - Added magnetic compass support for capable devices. Checked Irish grid conversion and no issue found, please email if any issue seen.
2.3.1 - Nexus/Droid fix.
2.3.0 – Improved readability.


GPS navigation and tracking for walking, cycling, Geocaching

Supports multiple map grid formats - UTM, Military Grid (MGRS), Ordnance Survey (OS) British & Irish Grid and Dutch RD support.

Navigate with a smoothly rotating compass, or rotate the phone for a large text-based view.
Capture and view tracks on the phone, or export to SD card.

New for version 2.3.2 - added magnetic compass support for capable devices. The main compass bearing is still based on GPS (i.e. movement between current and last position) but a yellow mark now also indicates the magnetic heading. This can be enabled or disabled in the settings menu.

Good but the compass keeps freezing on xperia x10. Uninstalled.

Slow response on the heading. Changed a digit in MGRS coord making it useless for my job.

Great app for those looking for a gps app in the military. I have used the MGRS on many land nav courses and its always on point.

Can't use to view coordinates on a map or plan a route so no use to me

UK OS grid co-ordinates great for hiking.

Not what i expected... i expected something similar to the verizon gps. Want a refund.

Kim (*****)
Worth the money because it brings national grid coords. Dutch RD coords tested and performs well

jayne (*****)
OS grid ref is great for walking & rotate for big text is very useful

I was expecting "navigation" to mean maps etc, but it's essentially just a compass, coordinates and speed. Not really enough for a paid app. Refunded.

MGRS is wrong. Fort Benning is 16S not 17S and the rest is wrong from the real map. Their math is screwed up on the conversion.
