OK. Good for free. On a phone target helps. Inner circle needs to be thinner, less intrusive. Ability to change color of target to stand out against map. Perimeter measurement without adding final marker on top of first.

Garbage Don't run or allow programs that depend on it working to run. Worthless!! Not even worth a quarter or sliver of a star.
