THE STORY: Tactical NAV was created by a U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who was deployed to eastern Afghanistan on his third combat tour with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). While in combat, two of his fellow soldiers were killed fighting in the notorious Pech River Valley in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. From that point forward and as a way to honor his fallen comrades, he set out to create an MGRS-focused tactical mobile application that every U.S. military service member could utilize. All with the ultimate hope of saving the lives of others. MISSION: Tactical NAV’s mission is to provide military warfighters a low-cost, extremely accurate, and exceedingly powerful mobile tactical navigational solution. VISION: Our vision is to assist and support our nation’s warfighters with their mobile navigational needs and to enable them to fight and win in the Multi-Domain Operational (MDO) battlespace. BUILT FOR ACCURACY: Tactical NAV allows users to pinpoint their location with precision accuracy, and acquire an MGRS/UTM/BNG/LAT-LONG coordinate to any position on the map, anywhere in the world. Its performance is on par with the AN/PSN 13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR), and the application has been used to accurately and safely deliver conventional and precision-guided munitions (PGM) onto enemy targets in support of combat operations. THE BOTTOM LINE: Tactical NAV has been successfully evaluated against other targeting devices and software platforms such as JCR, CPOF, ATAK, and BFT, and comes within 1 to 3 meters of these "officially approved" systems that are issued by the Department of Defense. Currently, Tactical NAV is being used by tens of thousands of U.S. military and NATO personnel worldwide. FEATURES: • A TRUE military-quality precision targeting platform • Offline mapping functionality • WGS 84 standard (MGRS, UTM, BNG, and USNG coordinates) • Tactical drawing mode • Auto-navigation mode • Scalable gridlines with grid designators • Waypoint plotting functionality with military graphics • Location and waypoint sharing with other users via email and text • Compass “FastLock” function for capturing quick azimuths • Camera mode functionally • One-button night mode function for low-light situations • "Go to Grid" option for smart pinpoint planning and drawing of overlays • Created and tested in combat to ensure utmost accuracy and reliability • And so much more!!! COMING SOON: • BFT-like "troop tracking" capabilities • Ability to save photographs on the main map • Secure "free text" messaging between users MEDIA COVERAGE: Featured in the Army Times, BBC, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, Fox News, MSNBC, Daily Mail, and the New York Times. IMPORTANT NOTES: The Department of Defense does not endorse Tactical NAV, nor should it be used in combat situations in place of a government-issued device. ALWAYS GIVING BACK: All sales go into further development of the Tactical NAV platform, and a portion of all proceeds go to charities that support disabled veterans and their families.

    Really loving the offline maps update, and the ability to draw and calculate areas is an added bonus. Keep up the great work!

    Used to use this app for field support. I noticed that the green dot was not accurate so I updated it but now since I updated it and it no longer opens/loads.
  • Awesome military navigation app!

    By Sheriff Airborne
    This is a great military navigation app and the offline maps feature is awesome. The developer (Jonathan) was very quick to email me back when I had a question about how to use a feature, and even gave me his personal cell phone number to call if I needed him to walk me through how to use the area drawing feature. I mean, you just can’t beat customer service like that. Well worth the money and I’m looking forward to future updates. Thanks for your service Jonathan, you’re doing outstanding work!
  • Better than a DAGR and JCR

    By Really6373
    Outstanding update! Just downloaded the latest update and am extremely impressed. Used this during our NTC rotation and it got me out of some binds. Already better than JCR and way better than a DAGR. Can we get user tracking next?
  • Prompt service

    The app is excellent as a part of terrain analysis with satellite imagery and and accurate MGRS checks. When I experienced an issue with the app, I was able to reach out via the contact information on Tactical Nav's Facebook page. There prompt service and outstanding customer service makes for a valuable resource all around!

  • Awesome MGRS NAV App

    By silas5150
    I spent some time looking for a high quality MGRS app to use in and around the backwoods of the Colorado Rockies and decided to give Tac NAV a try. Really glad I did. Love the features and look forward to getting a lot of use out of the app. Thanks!
  • Great for the citizen and soldier!!!

    By Jlvitti
    This app is such a user-friendly platform where the everyday civilian and soldier can easily access and be provided navigation in simple camping/hiking environments to the most extreme and stressful environments on the battlefield. Within the private sector, this app provides clearer and more concise navigation to civilians in all environments and has been tested and accurately utilized on the hectic streets and alleys of NYC! As a fires intelligence officer, there is no better innovation that is easily and readily available that I would trust more than this app. This app provided our artillery batteries and the chain of command the necessary and critical information to send rounds down range in a timely and most efficient and accurate matter that saved lives! The mission was an overall success by providing clear and concise direction to all commanders on the battlefield to enabling all soldiers to be intelligence agents by providing such critical coordinates and direction to make responsible and life-altering decisions.
