Android Coordinate Conversion App for 99 Cents!

"Coordinates NOW!" converts quickly between coordinate systems.  Push ONE BUTTON to get all six coordinate systems at once, the FASTEST way to convert when seconds count!

Inputs: DD.dddd / DD MM.mmm / DD MM SS.s / UTM

Outputs: DD.dddd / DD MM.mmm / DD MM SS.s / UTM / MGRS / USNG

Latest feature: "Get GPS Location" which quickly fetches the current GPS location, turns off the  GPS (to save power), and instantly converts to six coordinate systems.  Coming soon: INPUT screens for MGRS and USNG.

Why I wrote the app: Oso, WA, mudslide mission (2014)... The SAR deputy would run to the command truck, hand me a scrap of paper, and say, "Convert these coordinates now!" After conversion with a laptop he'd run to the helo, hand the paper to the crew, and they'd take off. "Coordinates NOW!" is a much faster and more portable conversion method for future missions, which he (and you) can use now too.  Get it here:

SAR Team Tracking Hardware

Coming soon: A stand-alone ruggedized lightweight radio tracker which can be carried by teams, allowing Command to see their positions on maps in real-time.  Carry your own network into the woods using APRS flooding protocols to repeat from team to team (to Command).  Add optional Bluetooth (Doesn't support IOS, sorry) and teams can use cell-phone or tablet to see positions of other teams or do messaging between teams and to Command.  Attach it to a SAR pack with a small carabiner and you're off and running, sending out your position and repeating those of other teams from node to node.

Preliminary specs: Nearly waterproof and crushproof due to the S3 1000 case.  Ham radio APRS tracking, 1 watt out, digipeating, pre-emptive digipeating.  Estimated 22+ hours runtime with swappable rechargeable lithium (18650).  8 to 9 ounces w/battery.  SiRFStar-V GPS/GLONASS + quad-helix antenna, flash storage, optional Bluetooth.  Transmits position, speed, altitude, messages (If cell/tablet connected via Bluetooth), battery voltage, satellites visible, satellites used in fix, and ambient temperature.
