A lot of people have sneered at the concept of using a smart phone in a SHTF or TEOTWAWKI scenario. But, I am here to tell you that you CAN and SHOULD use your smart phones as a part of your EDC in a survival situation. Many people have stand alone GPS devices in their survival and bugout plans that costs hundreds of dollars. Why? Because it was a go to method of navigation that was considered HIGH TECH and convenient compared to traditional navigation. However, what people don’t realize is that the exact same technology exists in your smart phones AND that even if the lights go out, you can still use your device for GPS and ultimately survival.
A common misconception is that once the power goes out, your phone will no longer function. That is absolutely NOT TRUE. Yes, you will loose the ability to make calls and receive data to your device. But, you’ll still be able to access apps on your phone and utilize the phones compass, gyroscope and features based on global positioning satelight systems (GPS) . These systems WILL NOT go away. GPS satellites are in space and receive their power from solar energy.
Solar energy can also be used to charge your phone when you no longer have power or access to power.
So, why is Military Survival GPS the best choice of app to have in a survival situation?
ANSWER: It is designed specifically with survival in mind. The app will function without cellular service and only requires the GPS to get you from point A to point B.
The app is VERY convenient for preppers and survivalists because you can set waypoints into the compass (much like military GPS systems) and then BACKTRACK to the waypoints without a map. The compass tell you where to go and the app gives you the distance. This will work if your 50 feet away or 500 miles away. All you have to do is set waypoints into the app which takes only a single press of a button or press on the built in map. We have set waypoints at our house, and a ton of other locations so we will always be able to find our way to these specific locations no matter what situation we may find ourselves in.
There is a second and very powerful reason that you should get this app on your device. TO SAVE MONEY!! The app costs $2.99 and the average GPS device over $100! SO, This app will literally save you hundreds of dollars and offer the same functionality. In fact, this app often offers more features than most basic GPS devices.
