Nice app! Marine Infantry Gunnery Sergeant of 16 years here and I approve. Tested it against my military grade Magellan and it was spot on. 10 digit grid down to 2 digit grid locator accurate. Grid Zone Designator, also accurate. Good job. The only recommendation I'd offer would be the option to track distance in miles, kilometers and feet for foot traffic. Superb!
