How To Download Tactical NAV On Chromebook

If you're looking to Download Tactical NAV on your Chromebook laptop Then read the following guideline.

BACKGROUND: Built from the ground up in the rugged mountains of eastern Afghanistan, Tactical NAV comes from the mind of a U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who had a vision of creating a low-cost and highly accurate mobile tactical navigation platform built specifically for military service members. Tactical NAV's journey began in the notorious Pech River Valley of Kunar Province, Afghanistan. U.S. Army Capt. Jonathan J. Springer, a Fire Support Officer with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), who was on his third combat deployment, began developing the tactical navigation platform following the memorial services for Spc. Blair D. Thompson and Spc. Jared C. Plunk, who were killed in action on June 25, 2010. After pitching the idea and being turned away by the Department of Defense on multiple occasions, Captain Springer remained resolute in his mission to continue developing Tactical NAV — even to this day. His ultimate goals were (and still are) to make a difference for other Soldiers and honor the men and women who were killed and wounded in battle. He ended up using his life savings to continue moving forward with the Tactical NAV project, all with the ultimate hope of saving military lives and helping his fellow service members accomplish their mission at home and abroad. Tactical NAV officially launched on the App Store on February 14, 2011. MISSION: Tactical NAV's mission is to provide military service members a low-cost, highly accurate, and exceedingly powerful mobile tactical navigational solution. VISION: Our vision is to assist and support our nation's service members with their mobile navigational needs and further enable them to operate and win during Multi-Domain Operations (MDO). BUILT FOR ACCURACY: Tactical NAV's performance is on par with the AN/PSN-13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR), and it has the feedback to prove it. BOTTOM LINE: Purpose-built by Soldiers and created to save military lives, Tactical NAV was the very first MGRS-focused app on the App Store. It has proven to be effective across a multitude of environments all throughout the world. Tactical NAV has been successfully evaluated against other software platforms and devices such as JCR, BFT, JBC-P, Nett Warrior, ATAK (and many others). Its accuracy is within 1-to-3 meters of these officially approved systems issued by the Department of Defense. IAPs & SUBSCRIPTIONS: Tactical NAV contains in-app purchases (IAPs) and subscriptions. Currently, tactical drawing mode is available as an in-app purchase, and offline mapping is also available to users as either a monthly or yearly subscription. All revenue generated from these features goes towards further developmental coding and updates, and a portion of all proceeds are donated to charities that specifically benefit disabled veterans. FEATURES: • A military-quality precision targeting platform • Purpose-built for the individual Soldier • Offline mapping capabilities (complete usage of the TACNAV platform with no emission of a cellular signal) • WGS 84 standard (MGRS, UTM, BNG, and USNG coordinates) • Tactical drawing mode (e.g., useful for Joint Fires planning, creating overlays, route planning, and so forth) • Waypoint plotting functionality with military graphics (per FM 1-02.2) • Compass "FastLock" function for capturing quick azimuths • Snap and save photographs onto the main map for intelligence purposes and AARs • Location, waypoint, and photo sharing capabilities (via email and text) • One-button night mode function for low-light situations • "Go to Grid" option for intelligent pinpoint planning and drawing of overlays • Created and tested to ensure utmost accuracy and reliability • iOS native code built for austere and contested environments • And so much more!!! IMPORTANT NOTES: The Department of Defense does not endorse Tactical NAV, nor should it be used in life-threatening or combat situations in place of a government-issued device.

    Had an issue in regards to using the offline features on multiple devices. I contacted Jon and within an hour he informed me he was working an update so that the app and its content stays with your Apple ID but currently not there yet. That’s the bad news. Good news is that he reimbursed me for purchasing it on multiple devices. True team player and excited for more improvements to an already great app! Kevin
  • Great app overall but has a bug in compass navigation…

    Fantastic tool with great features but has a bug when navigating. The blue needle on the compass only correctly indicates direction to waypoint/target destination when phone is in vertical/portrait mode. As soon as the phone is moved into horizontal/landscape, the dial is off by 70 to 90 degrees from the target destination. Hopefully this is an easy fix for the dev but it’s a pretty major issue when navigating if you aren’t aware of the issue, especially when mounting to plate carrier via kagwerks or juggernaut mount, which requires phone to be in the horizontal/landscape mode. Other than that, this app is excellent for professional or civilian use. UPDATE 3/24/22: Changing my review to 5 stars preemptively due to the extremely responsive developer. Jon responded within 24hrs, acknowledged the bug and assured me that he and his devs will strive to correct it in future updates. I have no reason to believe he will not make good on this so outside of that one issue, I am 100% satisfied with the app and look forward to all future updates. It can only get better each time!
  • A must buy app.

    BLUF: A beautifully designed military app that is very easy to use. Simply put, a must buy for soldiers and service members. For reference, my unit is currently en route to Eastern Europe, and the majority of us have downloaded Tactical NAV. I'm a platoon leader and genuinely find this app beneficial in day-to-day use for what I need in a military focused app. Also, after using it during a recent FTX before leaving CONUS, where we were using live rounds, mortars, and artillery fire during training, that is when I was sold on TACNAV. In my opinion, there is no other app on the App Store that compares to Tactical NAV because this app pretty much does it all, minus the troop tracking stuff, which I'm looking forward to when it comes out. I'm writing a detailed review because Jon took the time to personally respond to my email and answered all my questions in great detail, and I really appreciated that. He was a great help and I can tell he really cares about his product and his customers. Tactical NAV is a 5-star app all the way. AATW!

    Excellent app. Would like to see some kind of measurement tool included in the future so I can get a distance and direction between two points, but overall, Tactical NAV is superb.
  • Remarkable app

    Fantastic update to an already remarkable GPS/tactical app. Landscape mode works beautifully and I will submit any issues I find with the latest version to help your dev team. Keep up the great work man.

    Hello Sir, I wanted to update my review and tell you that your app is still working great. The updates you’ve released since my last review have been awesome. FYI, I’m really looking forward to the troop tracking feature when it comes out, as is my whole unit since we pretty much all use your app. I also really appreciate the fact that I can now instantly move waypoints and graphics around the map. This feature makes target refinement a breeze. Thank you, Sir!!!
  • Very solid app.

    I’ve been in the U.S. Army for almost 18 years now, and have deployed 4 separate times to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. I’ve used all sorts of military equipment and devices over the years, and I say this with 100% honesty: Tactical NAV is hands down the easiest to use, and the best tactical military app commercially available today. I’ve used it for years, as do my friends, and the app continues to get better and better with each and every update. In my opinion, it beats anything the Army is fielding right now, other than ATAK. If there was ever a commercial piece of software that I could see becoming an official Army app for Soldiers, this is it.
  • Solid app.
