    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 a starting coordinate that I get from this app. I would then get coordinates of a few random signs also pulled from this app, and have 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!
