Tactical NAV was created specifically for the military service member and was built from the ground up using real world feedback by troops serving in the field.

This app is an indispensable tool. Map & plot navigational waypoints, share location and waypoint information with other Tactical NAV users by email using encrypted security, and even take photographs stamped with GPS coordinates. These are just some of the tools the U.S. Military and NATO Armed Forces use to conduct combat operations on a daily basis - and now, these tools are available to YOU in Tactical NAV.




"The GPS is right on the money (using a DAGR to compare with). The best and most useful feature is the capability to take pics with the coordinates stamped in ... a must have app for all deployed military members who actually leave the wire."

"Was just in Korea and the app worked perfect. The new nav to a grid is great also."
- Trunco Inc

Does not yet work on S5 my main reason for buying this was to geotag my pictures with MGRS for planing military training CONOPs . Crashes every time you take a picture. Will update as soon as the 7$ app updates and works on my S5 at&t You can screen shot to achieve the desired picture, so far everything else works, if you like this app, mgrs grid reference might just do it

Ian Wright

Missing critical features Needs: - Offline maps (because T-Mobile's data coverage is horrible) - Distance and bearing (for CAS) I've seen reviews requesting these same items from around 6 months ago, so I know I'm not alone in this.

Bryan Canon

I was using this app constantly. Now that I upgraded to the latest version of Android though, it quit working. Please fix.

Rozeallan smith

Conflicts App works fine for finding location. Problem is. It interferes with everything. When I want to open files and documents this app conflicts and automatically tries to open them, then it takes you to a map where it attempts to find your location... if this didn't happen then it wouldn't be so bad..

Joshua Rutherford

Great app needs some work First of all to the creator of this app it is very helpful and convenient. However needs to be more user friendly, maybe a short walk through video would clarify some issues. DOES NOT seem very Land Navigation friendly. I am a 12 year marine veteran and former combat and tactics instructor. Needs to give an azimuth for waypoints. Granted whoever designed this app didn't intend it specificly for navigating point to point but rather plotting points and grids. Add azimuth and tutorial and I would give it 5

Michael Abbott

Needs someone to pick up This was a really great project, but really could use someone picking it up and running with it again. I hope the developers get back to it

Darryl Gerow

Not ready for Android I have a Samsung Victory. I've been in the Army 28 years and have been using GPS since the beginning. This app is not ready for primetime with thia device..I don't know how other Android users are doing. Specifically...I cannot open a simple waypoint list. It has something called an "event list" which seems to drop waypoints every time you simply mark a location on the map. But as far as dropping, naming, then pull up a can't do it. Much more but I ran out of space.

Paul Smith

Elevation Great app but can an updated version include elevation?....necessary for CAS.

jeremy kuttkuhn

Great use for military navigation Use it all over the east coast for military land navigation, convoys, and tactical planning. However the android app doesn't have the addition of the military symbols line the apple version. If it did, would give 5 starts.

Matt Hagin

Dissapointing NO moving map. Yes, your position marker moves, but the map must be manually moved with it - annoying. NO configuration settings. NO offline map storage. NO compass calibration. NO feeling of credibility as a Mil-spec app 'for the troops' due to update lag. It does run without errors on an LG G3.

Ian Ryan

Import waypoints Great app but I wish there was a way that I could import/export waypoints and possibly even create and save routes. You can input a waypoint but you cant navigate to a saved waypoint. All it shows is a close up of your point. I would like to see where I am and where the point i am going to is. If there already is a function it is not showing for Androids. I would like to see a Latitude and Longitude input so I can work on the water with it. Looking forward to the upgrades.

Eric Moquin

Bugs and problems fixed Customer Service second to NONE. Had issues but they were addressed and fixed as quick as possible. Works great! Looking forward to updates and more advanced options. Love it and want more!

David Hill

Needs updating I've used this on iOS and there's a ton of features not available on the android version. Why not? It's been a long time since any updates and developer promises but doesn't deliver. Can't recommend.

Jeff Reedy

Not even close to the IOS version No instructions. Will not take a grid point entered. Very disappointed

Callum Davenport-Lambton

No updates. expensive and featureless when compared to the iphone version. It's expensive when you consider that the version for the iphone is way better. Back in July of 2014 the developer promised that the app had not been forgotten and I should expect an update soon. It's now mid November and there is no update to be found. A real shame.

Eric Ogden

As a previous person stated it crashes whenever I try to take a picture. I also cannot load a way point list sent to me from an Iphone. I am using the Galaxy Note 2.

Scott Sines

Samsung Galaxy s5 active issue Won't even acquire the location of my device. Will update as soon as someone tells me why I can't find myself in the middle of the Mojave.

cirilo corpuz jr

Need to upgrade features still shows empty lots or property (buildings) need update satellite picture

Rob Law

Offline maps A must in my mind, other than that, great app

Mitchell Robinson

Great App Basically does everything you'll ever need.

Michael Slaby

Great but won't save pictures I've been waiting for this app to come to Android for a while. Everything works great except it will not save any pictures taken through the app, which is really what I bought it for. My phone is a Droid DNA. Hopefully this issue is resolved quickly.

nancy mayer

Works well Wish you could color code way points, add color coded routs of ingress and egress leave notes, draw on the map as if it were a real map with a transparency on top , AO(s) numeric/alphabetic coded as well as a expandable mag grid with the option to view numeric / alphabetic call system. Maybe the option to enable real GPS tracking with other users of your choice (with a call sign and choice of unit type symbol as we as color coding for each ( maybe for admin purposes with force on force training

S Drew

Basic setup Basically is has a great setup. Could be better. More tactical overlay options, routes, offline map capability. Keep building on this app.

Jeremy Broscious

Very helpful Good up to date overhead imagery


Stopped Working After Lollipop After androids latest lollipop update the app no longer functions as designed at all.

Scott Moore

Waypoint Distance and Directions I'd like to be able to drop multiple waypoints on the map and be able to see the distance and direction from one way point to another not just the distance and direction from my position. I used this app on iphone, it was much better than this android version. Please make th is app better.

Tiger Koo

Support for Android Lollipop needed!

Cory Curler

Always crashes when I try to take a picture with it

Bryant Turnage

Awesome GPS is accurate enough to know what side of the house im in.

Niels Kolkman

Too buggy Way too buggy app on S5. Closes on almost every action. Mailed developer four weeks reaction.

Nathan Horner

Love it Its accurate up to 1 meter. Verifed with army survey team.

daniel shapiro

Best way to navigate Easy to use perfect overlays

Kevin Miller

As described. Very good, and fast. Highly recommend

Justin Sleight

Does its job, but needs perms fixed. Requests too many permissions, and asks to run every time another file type needs access. Fix it.

Job Digi

Best The best app.

Tommy Watson

Thoroughly disappointed Deu to the maps not loading. Shows my grid, tracks my azimuth, but will not load a map.

Roland Goudswaard

A some for military Looks like it a good. Phone.

Gilberto Gonzalez

Sux! It doesn't work with the Note 4. Disappointed.

Wesley Kronick

Great start for the Android. Camera crashes on the note 4.

Michael Smith

Great App Thank you for a wonderful and useful app. I have had great success marking out routings for hikes and way points etc. PLEASE add a tool to calculate distance from way point to way point as well as cumulative total distance and adding the first 2 reference numbers onto the yellow grid lines and then I will absolutely upgrade to 5 stars. Thank you very much for a great tool.

Rick Mallais

No interoperability Severely lacking in the interoperability with its apple counterpart. Also,it lacks many of the features seen on Apple. I only purchased it to be able to recieve map overlays for the TOC , which it cannot do. Purchased over a year ago and it's still lacking the same functionality as iOS. Good concept, great on Apple, disappointing on Droid.

Steve Hamilton

Thanks! So smart phone applications for the military are definitely a niche thing - especially since the military has their own suite of software and private development going on, as well as their own security concerns. In it's current state on the Android operating system, this app provides a useful tool for pulling your current 10 digit grid, as well as the cursors grid. There is the ability to save way points, but could be improved. I appreciate this app for what it is, not what it could be. Thank you.

Arthur Stanciu

??? So what does it do?? Extremely limited functionality. Let's you just place way points save them retrieved saved sets sure but I can't do anything with the way points. No distance from one to the other or route setting.

Nicholas Blevins

Great Military App If you do a lot of navigation in your field of work this app is legit. No issues and always gives the right grid. A must for any deployable Soldier.

Ian Shearn

Great potential This app has everything you need for general grid references Maps but I'd like to see 8 figure grid reference lines option this would make it easier to pinpoint Pacific location on a map

Jared Shuebrook

Relatively nice Could use offline maps and a red light feature that carries into the compass

Obie Beretti

Excelent A must have one for each team's member!

Al H

Great! Works a treat. Even with only GPS running

Jay Kaack

Great APP, would love to see version for gear S watch

Jeffrey Jamison

Love it for pulling a 10 figure grid reference but missing some features that anyone in the field would definitely want...

Paul Reithmayer

Was this app discontinued no updates for a year Can't get camera to play nice with tax nav on my note 4

Russ Ring

love it, but cant get it to import wapoints

Josh Cabral

Offline Maps If you include offline Maps this App will be almost perfect. When you do I will give you 5 stars

cirilo corpuz jr

Need to upgrade features still shows empty lots or property (buildings) need update satellite picture , now this is 2016 and there's no response from you guys and still no updates

anthony medina

Sir can we please get an update? This app desperately needs offline capabilities. And also needs to be on par with IOS. Android users are being left in the dark. As a 19D I use it all the time.

Steven Lovan

It works Everything that I need to get the job done

E M Moran

As is it could be far worse However, it is now nearly three years since the last update. There are bugs big and little needing addressed, and missing features that would make this app invaluable to all users. If these things continue to remain ignored, it wouldn't be long before another developer came up with something that would completely render this one obsolete

Callum D.L.

No updates. expensive and featureless when compared to the iphone version. July of 2014 the developer promised that the app had not been forgotten and I should expect an update soon. July 2015 no update has been pushed

Robert Smith

Falls short of Apple version I'm not able to input proper MGRS grid, there are no tactical graphics to use, not able to measure distances between points.

nathan swindell

dont get if your australian the map tiles would not download for my area in australia and was very buggy. would be great if this could be fixed as the concept is awesome.

robert jenkins

Camera function does not work on Droid MAXX Ive seen this app work great on another phone but for some reason it crashes when I try to use the camera function

Hayden Matthews

This app can help me to find a way out when someone or me get lost. I am getting used to it.

Needs upgrading App needs to be upgraded to match the apple version. And to run on tablets. The limited android version runs on my old phone but not my new tablet

Patrick Thériault

Love the app, but Need an offline mode. I'm in the military and use this app a lots when training. But if I go oversea without data, this app is useless. Need a way to save the map for offline use

Jack Ryan

No heading nor distance It won't let me measure distance across the ground (feet, yards, meters, miles, nautical miles, km) and won't give me a heading between two points (magnetic, true, grid). Pretty much worthless without those two things in my opinion.
