Description

All-in-one assistant with a map, compass, GPS coordinates to view and share in 6 formats, altitude, distance, sunset/sunrise, speedometer with top and average speed, navigator to your target or along the route and a whole lot more! + Advanced target/waypoint editor. Can be also used as a coordinates converter. You can use map to check or set waypoint location and add photo or audio note. + Share your location via email, text message, Facebook or Twitter. This includes UTM, MGRS and Latitude/Longitude (MENU>Share my location). + Yep, you can use UTM, MGRS or Lat/Long, just pick your preference in the settings (Coordinate Format). + Speedometer. Shows you the speed and pace. Speedometer also gives you options to control average and max speed and pace counters (MENU > RESET and PAUSE/RESUME counters). + Compass. Instant reaction compass, no delays. Automatically pickups the direction based on magnetic or GPS course. If you mostly walk or drive, you can change this automatic mode in app settings > Compass or GPS course. NATO mils? Same place in settings to set. + Sunset and sunrise. So you can plan your travel better. + Arrow pointing to your target waypoint. Distance and bearing to it. + Export/share waypoints into Google Earth KML or KMZ, GPX or a simple Garmin csv formats. All above belongs to a basic version. PRO Pack upgrade will add following capabilities: + Recording and sharing GPS tracks. + Moving waypoints between folders. + Showing ETA to a target as this requires GPS tracking. + Native Google map with fantastic terrain map, amazing 3D and real night mode. + Adding own/custom tile map servers. + Downloading offline maps. + GPX import and export for waypoints, tracks and routes. + Export waypoints and tracks into Google Earth KML/KMZ or GPX. + BACKGROUND MODE. App will work in background automatically when tracking. You can use other apps while Land Nav 55 does its job in the background! + PRIVACY. Land Nav 55 never shares your location data with 3rd parties or ad agencies. Location data is used solely for telling you direction to a target and recording the GPS tracks and never leave the app unless you decide to share by means of a track export. It always let you know when background mode is on and never runs in background unless the track is being recorded. ! You can use this app on your iPhone as well as on any cellular iPad. **App will not work properly on iPods and wifi only iPads as they don't have GPS (external GPS module is required). As quite a lot of us are using external GPS modules, app is available for wifi only iPads and iPods. ! Please note that as with all GPS apps, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    Have used this app to gather data during flight training. Use an external GPS, start the tracking function before take off and don’t look at it again until after shutdown.
  • Excellent app!

    I love the app; but if you’re still adding features, I’d like to request the USNG coordinate format.
  • Review. Great tool.

    I am teaching compass to my kids. This is a great transition from pure electronics to a mechanical compass.
  • Easier to use.

    I like this app. It’s faster to set a route and my wife likes how easy it is to understand. This is THE BEST driving app I’ve ever used. You’ll like it.

    Just flat out a complete, precise, usable, and useful app. Give it a shot! One of the best I’ve come across.

    I am impressed when an app like this launches into a screen that explains setting options and how to use it including links to video tutorials. Was even more impressed by the unobtrusive star in the upper right window corner that will connect to the developer. Stan WANTS to help by directly responding to each inquiry. He makes it clear what the $4 upgrade offers: Pro pack enables following functions: Google map for the main screen. Blank map to avoid data/internet usage. GPS track recording, sharing, pinning to a map and retracing. Adding own/custom map servers. Downloading maps for offline usage. Multiple waypoint folders/collections and moving waypoints between them. Showing ETA for the target navigation. I have not yet upgraded and to date have not seen one advertisement after launching three times. I sorted and read through the MOST critical reviews before downloading this app and saw where Stan responded to each. It's not often that the most critical reviews give a developer 4-5 stars. So I took the plunge. Am not disappointed in the least.

    This is a great app. Easy to set way point or targets or to edit what’s in history. The only complaint I have is that when trying to view routes to waypoint the map is locked to your location; this prevents you from searching for the best route. Other than that, it is a great app. I can actually say I’m glad to have purchased this app.
