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.

Input multiple coordinates (8 or 10 digit military grid reference coordinates or latitude/longitude in decimal or DMS format) and the application calculates the azimuth and distance from your current location to the input coordinates. Best of all, it will visually guide you in the correct direction. No compass or pace count necessary.

This app will let you export your list of points to a spreadsheet via email. This makes it easy to transcribe courses for later use.

This app uses the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) and Latitude / Longitude.

Azimuth can be in either degrees or mils.

While the Course Navigator always displays an 8-digit coordinate, the app is actually using the full coordinate you input. 8 digit coordinates are displayed for simplicity.

D:M:S can be input in the format DD:MM:SS followed by the appropriate direction (NSWE). Default direction is N, W.

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.

    After trying many different applications over the years, I found this one to be the best. I have used this app for locating injured soldiers using ground evacuation platforms. I have also used this app to teach land navigation using MGRS. I give soldiers

    Using this app for missions picking up casualties and all they give us is a MGRS location. This app made it way easier to navigate through all the many roads. Thanks for helping the Armed Forces continue mission. Hooah!

    Extremely useful in building a land nav class. Oh yeah... Everyone pile your phone in this corner before we proceed with the class. :-P

    This app is excellent. And the developer is quick to respond to valid suggestions. Thank you for giving the community a useful tool in instructing land Navigation and enjoying ourselves in the back trails of the country.
