  • This app saved my toes! Jan 4, 2021

    By Ben Dibuz
    Tried this out when backpacking Big Bend for the first time. Ended up getting snowed into a mountaintop campsite with a historic amount of snow. This app gave us the confidence we were going the right way to return to the base when we couldn’t see any trail or tracks at all and needed to get down in time to prevent frostbite. The tracking works remarkably well and the UI is fairly intuitive. Also seeing the difficulty gradient along the trails is very useful for planning and decision making. My only suggestion would be to make it easier to access and view stats on previously tracked hikes. The only way I could find to access them was by tapping on the path on the map, but sometimes I had hiked the same segment many times making this an imprecise way to find precious data.

    This app is very very useful while hiking in the forest or in an area you are not familiar with. The company has the greats help while learning to use this app when I call them for help the questions have always been answered before the phone is hung up I can get lost so fast when there is no sunshine I have no sense of direction unless the sun is shinning. With this app I always turn on the tracking option when I leave the car and it makes a trail where I have been so if there is no sun I can just follow the trail back to the car The offline maps are really good for areas there is no cell service All you need to do is find the area you are going to go to and down load that map to the phone works better to do that when you have Wifi All so when you have no cell service the battery on you phone last a lot long if you use airplane mode on the phone Kyle

    Whether you are planning a snow show adventure, looking for local hot springs, or renting a lookout tower for a night, this app will not only lead you in the right direction, but it will tell what weather to expect and show you all the details you might need to start your adventure. I highly recommend it!

    On my first trial use of these maps, there's an entire campground mislocated and no way to report it. Use of maps like this will get you lost.
  • Needs Bugs Fixed Feb 4, 2021

    By TannerKentLeeMaster99
    I’m a premium user of OnX Hunt, Backcountry and Off-road and I LOVE the whole suite. They’re incredibly helpful for anything outdoors. Some things I wish they would fix: You can’t share multiple waypoints at a time. You have to share them individually. In Backcountry it reroutes you to safari then to the App Store and then finally to the app. In Hunt it doesn’t. I’d love to see it be easier on backcountry. The airdrop function in share is useless. It won’t open in any of the OnX apps. It comes as a text file of coordinates. Also only the creator of the waypoint can share it and that’s a major pain. It would be killer if anyone could share it that way it’s easier for a group. If these bug fixes could be addressed the apps would be unmatched.

    Used this to replan a previously taken trip. It's a good start. Needs work. onX Backcountry is sluggish and slower to respond than either onX Hunt or Offroad apps on same device. There's no legend for coloration of roads and trails. There's little differentiation between trails and MVUM roads (see Smith Fork and Greys River/Labarge area). There are times when the same waypoint symbol is used twice with different truncated labels (see trailer symbol). Can't expand them. No layer control.

    So confusing I'll never figure it out. No chance I'm paying for it if I can't get it to work for the free trial

    No real difference then the other two onx apps very limited in maps and features compared to other gps apps.

  • The future of online mapping Feb 22, 2021

    By bubbleballs213
    Though this product is fairly new, it is already showing its promise to be the leading online mapping site which is guaranteed to help you get into and out of places you previously didn’t even know were there.

    If you spend any time in the back country especially where you have no service this is easily worth the money.

    Comparing this to AllTrails. I prefer the clean UI of OnX to AllTrails. It's easier to read. Where it loses out to AllTrails is it's user base. Trip reports are valuable. Not sure if OnX plans for this. If so, OnX is new to hiking maps, so imagine it will take some time to get this data I prefer planning on physical maps (I use CarinCarto for western MT) as generally there is more detail. But OnX beats AllTrails on trail detail. OnX can beat AllTrails by putting layers in like previous burns.

    Has everything that my other favorite app has with much more and ease of use is so much better. I still have questions and some additions that I would like added. But I'm hopeful that they will at least look at my suggestions/ opinions. Great app

    Great app. When I had issues with the app, the customer service was excellent. They were fast and very helpful.

    Lots of interesting options. Special places, trails and even weather info with cell service

    No property lines? I previously used OnX hunt to navigate on my property after a family member's recommendation, but as I'm more of a hiker than a hunter I thought this app might be better. Unfortunately, the property lines aren't an option on this app. It would be great if that could be added as an option.

    Pretty redundant if you have OnX hunt or Offroad. Not sure why they made a whole new app. 95% the same

  • BETA version - bad use of layers , no controls Dec 22, 2020

    By jamesm925
    caltopo is superior. this app seems to have slope angle shading enabled by default, with no way to turn it off. it clutters the maps and makes them hard to read. it lacks basic functionality like checking elevation by pointing the crosshairs, lacks easy distance measuring. google earth has way more features than this app. it’s def not rdy for prime time.
