  • 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 app. I use it all the time. It is nice to know where you are. There are some people out there that try to intimidate you into not entering public lands. This gives you the information you need to make informed hunt and travel plans. Support is great. Only had to use them once. Easy, quick and fixed my problem. I would recommend!

  • Best Hunt Mapping App May 31, 2020

    By Crypnotique
    The features available on OnX are better than any other hunting and mapping app I have used in the past. Excellent array of mapping layers to select from, even including NOAA nautical charts, logging and burn data and federal land. Very good property ownership data, though I wonder how often it is updated, as I have noticed some parcels that are currently labeled incorrectly just based on knowing the current owner. The vast selection of possible waypoint markers, the ability to track your movement and save the path, and the ability to share those data points with other users of the app is great. They recently updated the satellite imagery to more recent imagery, which has been helpful in many cases, but therein lies my only complaint I can think of at this time. I would like the ability to choose between a small number of satellite imagery layers from different dates to display the map in. I often use OnX to e-scout for waterfowl hunting and the satellite imagery from before the update was taken in the winter, allowing me to better see creeks and marshes which flow under tree canopies. The latest imagery makes it harder to see into those possible duck holes. The ability to switch between winter and summer imagery would be very beneficial for that purpose and many other hunting and angling pursuits. Overall, love the app and all of the available features.

  • Great product, great customer support Apr 18, 2020

    By lee2476
    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.

  • Not good offline and having to constantly re-download Sep 2, 2020

    By 86435692
    Same story different version of the app. The offline maps take forever to download, they don’t download at the same quality. I have major issues when I can scout from my phone or computer but download the map section (yes at the highest quality) and all I see in the field I blurry objects. It takes a lot of time and energy to download large portions of maps for offline storage and half the updates ONX comes out with deletes the saved maps you have stored. You have to turn on every layer to actually download that data which i guess isn’t the end of the world and maybe some guys don’t download all data to save room on their device? Not sure just make a button to click to download all available layers so you know your covered. I have always liked and used ONX but I could be so much better. They do a lot for land access and certainly have made a good name for themselves. Hopefully someone like basemap can put out a functional offline mapping version so those of us who utilize the offline version especially across multiple states and/ large portions of states for different species can easily download and access the data later.

    I've used this App for several years now. It went from pretty cool to devastatingly horrible over the course of the last few years. This year I used it for both deer and elk hunting in areas that were surrounded by private property. It was EXTREEMLY important to know where I was hunting considering the new trespassing laws in Idaho that allow zero leeway when crossing into private property. Property owners no longer need to post their property or give a warning. I completely missed my only opportunity to shoot a deer and missed several opportunities to shoot an elk. The app constantly locked up/froze. The only way to get it working was to restart my phone. Anybody that hunts knows that waiting 2-3 minutes often results in a missed opportunity. To make matters even worse (the reason I call the app "devastatingly horrible") when it locked up as I was moving along the road crossing between public and private property, I often thought I was on public land when I was actually on private land. Shooting an animal on private property could cost me my license, at the very least and I'm certain that Fish and Game would not even consider OnX locking up as a valid excuse. My two brothers were having the same issues. Contacting technical support from a mountain top was not an option.

  • Why I cancelled Nov 22, 2020

    By Jay Will 789
    I was initially excited when I purchased OnX two years ago and found the app helpful. However I will be canceling my membership and going with another service after many failed attempts to have issues corrected. I own a large parcel of land that is used primarily for hunting and fishing and often invite friends and family to hunt. I noticed the property lines on my land had switched to outdated lines from years ago. Also the land owner information was incorrect and displayed the previous owners information. I attempted to contact OnX and tried to tag the land with the updated ownership many times over the last year. It is very frustrating that after a year I have not got any response from OnX. I’m not paying for an outdated app and non existent customer service. I have found other apps that have the correct boundary lines and land owner information so I will be taking my business elsewhere. I will also be canceling the five other accounts I pay for that family and friends use. I am disappointed and frustrated that I have to start over with another app but I can’t justify paying for a service that isn’t correct.

    Absolutely the worst customer service I have ever encountered. They never reply. They take your money for upgrades, but no instructions were sent. I purchased land five years ago. I paid cash. They will not take it out of the previous owners name. These pukes are not trustworthy and this is based on my experience with them.

  • 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!!

  • 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.

  • Great app. Nov 24, 2017

    By Cmt179
    Love the app for knowing where you are at and staying on the right property or public land. I sold my Garmin and bought a charge pack for my phone and haven't regretted it. Just a few ideas for developers if they read this. 1st please at a "navigation to" function. It's useable to navigate as is but it would be awesome to navigate to your truck for example and it would keep track of how far and what direction it was. And secondly, would be the ability to just measure a distance from your current location instead of having to mark two location. Also the ability to change units of measure (to yards for example). There have been a few times I've ranged an animal near an unmarked boundary and having to do the math to figure out what side of the boundary it is on is tough in the moment. Both of those are improvements and don't detract from the fundamental purpose. A few small improvements would make it 5 star.

    I like the App but where I live here in South Arkansas specifically Union County,, it seems the property lines are kinda jacked up and the view that I'm seeing in no way matches,, for instance a single wide trailer has been behind my property line for almost 2 years, in a clearing,, its not shown on OnX satellite view,,, also my property is labeled under my neighbors name and his property lines aren't even apparent and my name isn't shown in the area anywhere I need a updated version bad!!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Waypoints not accurate Jan 11, 2019

    By JohnnyDezert
    I subscribed to onX hunt for the last three years. In this time, the app has been a rollercoaster, sometimes good and sometimes not very reliable. Several times I have had to close and reopen the app because it freezes. Last year, they discontinued the “landscape” view that I used on my iPad, and upon contacting them, they assured me that it would be restored at a later date, but never was. Most recently, the last straw was on my archery elk hunt. I loaded offline maps before I left home, when I opened the app, it would show I was about 60 miles from where I actually was. I put an arrow in an elk, and immediately marked my position where I stood, and where I found first blood. I started tracking blood spots, and then went to backtrack to find my arrow and where first blood was, only to find that my waypoint was not accurate, and I never did locate the first blood spot. There are better gps apps available, do you’re research before subscribing, I will not be paying for this service anymore.

  • Below average Jan 8, 2018

    By Gndwntheroad
    As a user who has relied extensively on GPS apps for hunting/outdoor activities for over 6 years now I like to think I’m knowledgeable of this space. OnX does not impress. Reasons include: - Slow loading of app as you pan/zoom on both WiFi and on cellular coverage. - property ownership information that has not been updated in last 3+ years on some properties I’ve encountered. - bugs encountered that mistakenly display load topo maps at certain zoom levels when viewing regions in my home state. -user interface/zoom/pan/select is buggy and frequently freezes (true on both brand new recent model IPhone or the same phone a tear or two later). Now, I get the first point might be a tough knock, the app has a lot of information to process and I get that. But I feel like when you make an app for field use that the remaining 3 knocks are each a big deal. The website is a good addition and being able to save information is a solid feature. Don’t kid yourself, this would never set up for a “primary navigation” app though, it’s just much more of a head ache to use for that purpose. Overall it’s below average, i keep the yearly premium even with the flaws here. The concept is so good and useful for me that I’ll deal with the flaws as they don’t seem to be going away!
