There are more than a few of these U.S. National Grid (USNG)/Military Gird Reference System (MGRS)applications out there floating around. Big pluses for this system:
- SIMPLE - straightforward readout of your location in grid coordinates
- Florida USNG Efforts - managed to get the developer to lean forward and anticipate a Next Generation 9-1-1 requirement. The app allows for the, "easy transfer of coordinate to any other application to include text messaging." Just think of the possibilities.....no requirement to tell a 911 call center an ADDRESS during the stress of an emergency - instead they could get a text message with precise USNG coordinates......... All for a mere 99 cents!
