  • Best Phone mapping app in existence Oct 15, 2019

    By Hamfe6
    Now I will add to my review, that after posting this initial review I received an email response instructing me how to perform a task I didn’t know was possible. And I noticed a newsletter email detailing the same information. It is obvious the OnX company is devoted to doing their best work. Thanks OnX, please never go away. This app eliminates the necessity of a handheld unit for a lot of people. And the ability to share everything is tremendous. I can send tracks & waypoints to a guide who has never been to my ranch before and trust they’ll find their way. The OnX company constantly looks for ways to improve and innovate. I thank y’all very much for this. This app has allowed me to do my job more efficiently and to explain things to existing and new landowners more thoroughly. Thank you. My only request at this point is to have a desktop version. But I understand that’s not really what this app was built for. Anyhow thanks for the great product. Please keep up the good work. Seriously recommend for anyone wanting to setup a hunting ranch, or use for their own hunting or adventures. VERY IMPORTANT! Some people believe Google Earth is better. I have used Google Earth for 14 years. I still am forced to use it for some of my work. However Hands down OnX has changed the game. GOOGLE EARTH’s app never works half as good and doesn’t have near as good location capability.

  • Great product, great customer support Apr 18, 2020

    I have been using the onXmaps program on my iPhone for over a year here in Montana. It has become an indispensable tool for me. As in many states, Montana can have some very confusing land ownership patterns. There are places where the fences and mix of private and public land are so confusing that I refused to hunt them. Now I can go there with confidence. I had an issue recently with my saved for offline use maps. It was probably my fault. Still, I couldn't resolve it so I contacted onXmaps support. Right away I got an email with step by step instructions for resolving the issue which worked. So, great product, great customer support. I have told everyone that I know about this great product. If you hike, fish, hunt, backpack, you should buy this. Update: I have been an enthusiastic user of the hunt app for years now. The app just keeps getting better and my uses for it continue to expand. I and my hunting partners have used the app to scout new areas among many other uses. This last season, we hunted a private ranch that had been broken into units on which the public could hunt in limited numbers. Before we hunted there, we put the boundaries of the partitioned ranch on our offline maps. We hunted that place with confidence. This is a great product and a great company.

  • Mixed Review - GPS users need to read Feb 15, 2019

    By Noel Hastings
    I looked online and read reviews like most before getting this app. Started with the 7 day trial and was blown away. The review is mixed due to confusion and some some support issues. After using the app for several days on iPad and iPhone I loved it and planning multi-state trips in future I opted to buy the “Elite All States” annual membership. I soon upgraded my old GPS to a new Garmin 66st and was excited to try out this data on my GPS. I also bought a large SD card to accommodate the data but soon found no way to load the data. After some more research it was clear that you *cannot* use the data on anything but an iPhone or the web without their branded OnX Hunt chips which cost $120 for every state! So an annual membership and roughly 5 states would cost you nearly $700!!! I contacted support who told me that they would sell me a discounted chip as I already paid for the annual membership but when I called during business hours, as instructed, I got an answering message stating they were closed. I am now conflicted. Even with a hefty discount it seems to truly use this on my GPS I will need to buy several more chips and since I can’t get through to support I am not sure what that discount will even be. The data and format are amazing and I would give that 5 stars but the support and value thus far are around 2-3 stars. I will update with more as I get a better sense for what they can do and what it will cost me.

  • Best hunt map app! Easy to use! Aug 4, 2019

    By Hunt&FishVA
    I’ve used a couple other apps in the recent past that were recommended by friends, but none of them were really user friendly or had all of the options that I was looking for. Then I found OnX. SO much easier to use than the other apps. It’s now my go-to-app when I’m at home looking at my maps or in the field marking game sign and scouting new areas for stands or blinds. I’m sold for life; OnX is perfect for my hunting map needs. Highly recommended! **Update after 4 months of use** The onX app continues to be one of the most useful hunting tools in my arsenal! I have completed mapping our 1200 acres of private hunting land using onX, including mapping all of the trails and marking locations of more than 110 tree stands. Throughout the process, I have learned more about the land that we hunt than I ever could’ve imagined. Thanks to onX, learning the (complete) lay of the land was so much easier than I thought it would be. I’ll definitely have the app open every time I go in the woods! Being able to share way points with friends has been super helpful. If you’re considering trying out onX, do it with confidence! The app is great!!

    I use this app nearly daily. It has helped my life a great deal and would be greatly disappointed if it went away. It has so many options I haven't explored I guess because I haven't needed them yet and my time is limited. I would recommend this app to anyone who spends time in the outback. I am on different properties every week, and it gets me familiar quickly. Thank you.

    Been a dedicated user for several years. Now all of a sudden, the Aerials are leaf on and green. Can no longer make out game trails are decipher between conifer and deciduous. Without leaf off Aerials, this app is now worth only about 1/3rd it's subscription price...and even at that I wouldn't get it again until it's fixed. The conclusion of this next year will be the conclusion of my being a user of Onx.

    This app worked great, after a few months his info I need that I purchased the app for changed, no longer highlighting large public land areas I frequent. It also has become unreliable, sometimes not working for days. Very frustrated since I have so much data stored but can't use it. I rate 2 stars because it did work well, the last 3 months I would rate 0 stars. Customer service hasn't helped at all.

    Works well and property boundaries are usually pretty accurate but owner information is questionable at best. When you report errors they don't get fixed even months later or years later. I reported 2 separate errors to owner information more than a year ago. County websites have had the correct information listed as well for over a year and it still has not been changed in the app. Do not waste your money. Use county explorer sight instead if you want any useful info.

    I had to edit this app ! There is no place on app to notify someone on cemrash issues .everything I type in a person's name to search for the land they own under landowner it locks up or freezes up i have to close app please fix issue quickly. I have a Samsung S10 plus phone so its not my phone. Thanks. Love the app has a few bugs but they are working them out.

  3. View the game management units for game species specific to all fifty states across the US

  • Most useful app I have Sep 29, 2018

    By dccycleworks
    I was hesitant to try this app after some other ones came up very short, but after a few friends recommended it I tried the free trial. I was hooked the first time I used it! For once there is an app that actually does what it advertises. Just today it was well worth the yearly subscription, I had hiked about 7 miles into the woods along a game trail and it was getting very hot and I was very tired, I decided to open OnX to see how much further I had to go if I stayed on the trail to intersect the road, when I opened the app I saw that I had just started paralleling the road but the intersection was another two miles away, but as the crow flies I was only a half mile from the road, so I just hiked the half mile and was back on the road I had parked on saving me probably a couple hours. Also customer support is great! I was having an issue with the app when off grid sometimes, I emailed them about it and they responded quickly stating they were aware of the issue and it had already been fixed in the update that got released that same day, I updated the app and it has been flawless ever since! Best app ever

  • Definitely a Fan Aug 22, 2019

    By Arizelkhunter
    I have been using the app now for approx. 3 years now. I have had a number of Garmin GPS units which helped to keep me on track in unfamiliar territory. None provided the amount of info that OnXmaps delivers and I was always having to work through bugs with them. I found myself using OnXmaps more and more and eventually only carried the GPS in the holder on my Ranger. Last year I found myself in a dispute on some land that was listed as US government trust land but was apparently being leased to an unnamed Native American tribe. The told me I couldn’t hunt on the land and called law is enforcement. Law Enforcement upheld my position and said that they also use OnXmaps. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that it only works in the vertical position on my IPad and doesn’t rotate. Yes, I admit that all of the landowner info isn’t up to the minute accurate, but last time I checked I’m not right 100% of the time either. If there is a piece of property I want to hunt on that’s private, I don’t take it for granted that it’s okay to hunt on, I try to contact them. If I can’t contact the landowner, I hunt somewhere else. Simple enough. Highly recommend. Good luck in your adventures.

  • Great app, lacking in a few places Nov 2, 2017

    By modizzledaddy
    I love this app so far, but one gripe. The downloadable maps should be more customizable, or at least give me more options. I’m locked into low/medium/high res maps for offline use. The high and medium res maps have amazing detail, too much for my uses, and only lets me download a certain size (5 or 10 mile wide) plot at a time. If I wanted to download a 100 mile square I would have to download 10 different maps. Not the hardest thing in the world to do, but tedious when compared to other offline gps app like Gaia(onxhunt and Gaia are very different, Gaia/off-roading navigation and onxhunt I use for hunting). The low res covers practically all of Colorado, and is close to detailed enough, but not quite. If they could make an offline map download option that was in between the low and medium res options, this app would be everything I could hope for. I could download 4-8 maps and cover the entire state, and never have to worry about not having service when I want to check my location.

  • Slow with blank spots Nov 7, 2018

    By dogcoyhunter
    So far I do like the app. I’m only in the trail period, but so far it’s been a little slow to respond and their are a lot of times their has been blank spots, in other words white spot blocks all over my map when I move in or out. Sometimes they go away after a very long time or they stay and I don’t know what is behind them. The layers have been ok, sometimes a little hard to follow. I wish the whole app would rotate, not just the map. I’m more the likely to get the app. But before I do I will be taking it out and doing some of my testing. But the biggest thing I’m worried about is the slow loading and big areas of white spots. I’m using the app on my iPad. Update: the white spots have improved a lot. Still a little slow in loading. Now it’s the speed it’s way off or it freezes. It mostly shows the speed faster then I’m going or it’s why below what I’m going. I still would like to see the whole app rotate. I like my iPad in landscape. It’s much easier for me to see it.

  • Property Ownership Updates Slow Nov 24, 2018

    By JGutch
    Based on my direct experience using the app as well as providing correct land owner information to OnX, they are very slow to update land ownership changes. I would venture to say that the land ownership is one of the most if not the most important map layer that hunters want to see. For the price that users pay for this subscription, this is the information that needs to be as current as possible, especially when the app is showing a property as open to the public when it is actually privately owned. I own property that was shown on the app as open to the public when I purchased it nearly a year ago. The app showed the property that was previously owned by a University Foundation as open to the public even though the foundation had it posted as private. I alerted OnX to this error and provided them all of the information they requested but the error still remains today. This land was never open to the public. If this is the speed at which the company handles a critical map error, as a user I would not pay the extra for “elite” membership. Just my personal opinion as a hunter and subscriber.

  • Not after the update Mar 31, 2019

    By 86435692
    Update: Since upgrading to the newest version Still not impressed with the downloadable maps and to make it even better you need to delete all the maps you saved before and redo them. (No big deal. They actually save about 50 percent of the time and take forever to download. Should be a good use of my time which apparently isn’t valuable). It also extremely confusing to understand when your downloading a new map how to download additional layers with it. It automatically saves the three base layers but not any other layers. So if you hunt where there is no cell service you better make sure every layer on every map you save is there before leaving. Pretty much a joke and a huge waste of time at the end of the day. The app is pretty nice especially if you are you using it with a computer, not super easy to use but you do get used to it. There are definitely better options out there if you need maps with layers to save to your phone or put Into your GPS for when your out of service. If you hunt mainly where your phone has cell reception and don’t need to save files for offline use I would say it worth the money

  • Needs work still Oct 5, 2017

    By 216Lexilulu
    Old version worked well. Newer version has been problematic. Can’t import google earth waypoints (yet)... old version would. Layer transparency has been a big issue. Can’t control the roadless layer transparency offline so you can’t see the dang map underneath. Can’t even turn the layer off which caused a lot of headaches 2 weeks ago in Montana. Hopefully fixed now. Would like to be able to download larger blocks off high detail or custom shape of high detail maps for offline use. Downloads in 5-mile blocks are a PITA and take all day for large areas. Downloads should include all data layers and give user control over layers offline. Instead, if it’s not on when you download you don’t have it. Bottom line is that the new version was released prematurely before bugs were worked out and functionality was verified. And it was released right before bow season... nice timing. It’s a fantastic app when it works right yet incredibly frustrating when you’re depending on it and it doesn’t. Please keep working on it. I know you will get it dialed in soon.

    This App is a Rip-off. It charged my bankcard 1or 2 days before trial closed. Had it not been for me calling my bank for a different situation, they would have gotten the $29.99 Scott free without my noticing it til later. The teller told me with out my inquiry. The app only shows WHERE YOU LIVE, and the topgraphy. It may be useful for hunters, but I wanted it to do other things. Anyway, no disrespect intended, but taking money before I the notion of cancelling or not disrespects us.

  • Question for developer Oct 27, 2019

    By Steve_TN
    Loaded On X on my iPhone, want to use it to mark our property lines with deer season coming up. Since we have marginal / no cell service I downloaded a high resolution map of the area. Started it up in the house, blue dot was frighteningly close to the spot in the room where I was standing - awesome! Put the phone in airplane mode and set On X to off line. There are a couple corners I hadn’t been able to locate so was hoping On X would get me within metal detecting range. Walked along the first line, app seemed to track nicely. Got to the first unknown corner, looks good, put a flag to come back with the detector. Then I proceeded to watch the blue dot just wander around, even though my phone was sitting on a stump. Was moving a couple hundred feet randomly - not comforting. Started on the east line, which runs around 1/4 mile, seemed to be tracking nicely, got to the corner and again saw the dot move randomly. Started to move again, noticed that the blue dot was not responding when I moved, walked quite a ways, no change. So I hiked back up to the ridge where there is a little cell service, exited airplane mode and set On X to on line. Started tracking again, I went around 500’ and noticed that the blue dot wasn’t moving. Gave up at this point - any idea what was gong on?
