I have a problem since the last update. After using the app (which works fine) then closing it when I've finished, the app is restarting in the background and turning on the GPS which in turn is draining the battery. I have to reboot the phone or block location permission to stop it. Annoying! Any chance you can investigate and fix. (Android V6.0)
This was working well. Unfortunately the latest version has "negatively upgraded" so that the grid reference is off the bottom of the screen. It still tells me I am in square SU but I could be in Wimborne Minster or 87 miles away in Amersham. So until this is rectified it is not worth having.
Basically it's inaccurate. Out by 40 m and 30 degrees. It's a novelty only but useless when you need a compass.
Not properly compatible with Passport It is a great app and very useful with a super interface... so long as you are not using it on a BlackBerry Passport with a square screen where the eastings and nor things do not display. (The info is actually there and can be found by sending a message.) I know we Passport users are a minority but it would be cool if the app could be made to display properly on this and similar phones.
Grid Reference Display I want this app for its ability to provide a grid reference quickly. Unfortunately the readout is hidden behind the altimeter reading on Galaxy S3. The quick solution is go to 'share' and choose text or e mail. Your GR is then shown on the text which you don't need to send. But this bug needs fixing to get 5 stars.
Works but could do more. Gives a result immediately without waiting for GPS so really needs to say how got result and give an estimated accuracy (in contrast OS Mapfinder can take forever to get a fix). Could usefully display numbers of paper maps associated with the reading. Six figure reference seems a bit vague. Eight or ten should be options. Six figure reference appears truncated rather than rounded when compared to eight figures from OS Mapfinder.
