Tactical GPS gives the user of your app the information they need about their current latitude, longitude, altitude, heading direction, speed traveling, and surrounding environment, all in a military style visual style.
The plugin also contains a map view, which auto locates the user. Of course, the user can zoom in or out, rotate, and even find point of interest around them.
Live Update allows the user to turn off the function that fetches and refreshes their environment details every single second. If they prefer to lock the details, for example to show someone how high they really were when mountain climbing or hiking, they can simply turn it off with the flip of a switch and the statistics will stop updating themselves, locking in the data on the screen.
Ever wonder exactly how accurate those location apps are? Your users won’t wonder with this plugin… accuracy details are also displayed, letting the user know exactly how close the figures are. These live accuracy stats are based on the towers and signals used to locate your decide directly through Apple’s technology.
The plugin comes setup for distances measured in feet by default, but can be switched to meters with a simple code edit on one of the files. Simply delete this in the AN_Tactical.m file:
After that, the plugin will use Meters for all measurements instead of feet (a meter is 3.2808399 feet in case you were wondering how it works)
As always, this plugin is laid out on an easy to edit XIB file. Don’t like the background? We’re not offended… simply change it out with any PNG file on the XIB for a whole new look! All objects can be rearranged, text font can be increased or decreased, colors can be swapped… Have it YOUR way!
