I want this app
Download from AppStore

Specifically tailored for use by professionals in the USA, but suitable for use Worldwide.

Lookup your current location on The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) geographic coordinate system. Combine this data with WGS84 GPS Latitude and Longitude coordinates, your current Compass Bearing, Hemisphere data, and the Accuracy (in Metres) of the GPS data.

Send this information back to base via Email, with an Optional Photo. (Take a new photo or choose existing from library) *

The Email Subject and Email Text can be customised and saved from the Settings Tab. Once set, your customised text will be used for each new Email message.

Simplified information can also be sent via Text Message / iMessage or as a Twitter "Tweet". *

Includes a handy graphical guide to the United States UTM Zones.

For the best accuracy, use in an open space, away from trees or hill edges.

Like a traditional compass, use with the phone in a flat position, not upright.

When continued usage is required, you can set the iPhone Screen to stay on indefinitely, from the Settings tab.

This app requires Location Services to be enabled in your iPhone, and you must grant permission to the app to use these.

Compatible with iPhone 3GS, or newer. Not compatible with iPod Touch, iPad, or earlier iPhones (due to the lack of GPS and Compass hardware).

* - Internet Connection, and correctly configured Text Message (or iMessage), Email and / or Twitter settings, required to fulfil. Twitter functionality only available in iOS5, or later.
