  • 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.

    The app is very useful. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the landowner info is often 2yrs or more out of date. My house shows a person who owned it years ago still. I'm the second owner since then and it still hasn't changed. I've seen this multiple times. The boundary lines are also often shifted, but this is expected as the same thing happens with other GPS programs.

    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.

  • 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!!

    Have been using OnX for quite year for guiding and personal hunting for nearly 2 yrs. App is awesome, and is regularly updated. Had an issue after the last update, and support helped me find a solution within a couple hours before I went back out. Worth the investment (not an update issue, had to clear out cashe/storage).

    Freezes constantly unless the phone is kept on airplane mode. Tries to make you set waypoints when you're just trying to move the map. Loses tracks when you go to save them. Only thing that works decent is downloading the maps to use offline. This app didn't have these issues last season, but after a year of updates has become junk. Definitely finding another hunting app for next season.

    Was great at first but recently I've lost all my contents randomly. Then they'll reaper at a later time and then poof gone again no pattern what so ever tried forcing the app to close, restart phone, etc... I Rely on this app so I don't get turned around as I'm a hunter that moves quit frequently always looking for new sign. And the tracker has been freezing randomly also.

    3 years ago I would have recommended this app to anyone but with the amount of bugs that have been introduced in the last year it has become a complete disaster. It routinely loses saved waypoints and maps. The location is not Getting updated but other apps like Google maps can tell exactly where I am. Running an s10 plus With plenty of memory. The only reason I even give it one star was because of the desktop version for scouting.

    The app has worked great the past 3 years but since I have upgraded recently it has went wacky... Freezes and glitches more than it works properly ... Tracker get frozen as I move... Zooming in and out freeze to where I just force stop app and restart... Adding a waypoint and saving it takes forever like the app freezes again.... I have uninstalled and re installed several times ... I have force stopped the app about 50x or more the past week so I can restart... What is going on with the app?

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Pretty good overall. Shows roads that are not where it says, doesnt show some that are there. Thats not a problem. Biggest problem i have found so far is that the road you are driving on disappears behind you as you go, so if you want to refer back it just isnt there to see. Also, resolution sucks as you zoom in on an area. Overall, though, i like it and subscribed.

  • 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.

    Compared your maps with superimposed lot lines with my existing survey pins and there is a substantial difference. How accurate is this app supposed to be? Perhaps I'm expecting too much? Is the paid version more accurate? I'm willing to pay if it is within a foot, but not 15+ feet, otherwise it seems to work well on my Samsung S8+. I look forward to your response!

  • 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.

    Trying out this app and sadly it does not include my county in Michigan (Schoolcraft). Looks like a really nice app but not useful to me. I checked out the web site and there appears to be no way of requesting having my county added to the current library. If it had my county I would be happy to give it a real test and perhaps purchase a subscription!

  • 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.

    Maps leave a lot to be desired, very little clarity even when you zoom in. Look at Google maps for comparison and you can actually see differences in the land. If you could fix this it would be the best resource. Unfortunately not going to pay for something that gives such minimal detail.

    Congratulations. Not only has your plot lines been historically lacking in thoroughness around here (a lot of gaps), you have now grown too big for your britches and decided to make it a premium item. It was the only thing keeping onX on my phone. It was my way to try to not trespass without permission, at least on properties you would show lines for. I have other apps that do exactly what you offer now, so you are redundant. Goodbye.

  • Was an amazing tool, keyword was! Nov 16, 2017

    By Jrod2423
    I've been using this app to find landowner and property lines and it's been amazing until this most recent update that reworked the offline maps and now it is horrible. Offline maps used to be smaller and more manageable on a phone now you might get 1 whole map on your phone which is absolutely horrible compared to the dozen I had saved before and still had room for more. I don't understand why they have tried to fix something that wasn't broken, the new layout seems nice but the offline maps are ruined and that is what I rely on since I don't always have phone service, I may need to look at another mapping app. Update: Thanks but they didn't help either, also if you used the old USA topos in the past that is not an option anymore, now it's just the topo lines over a white page and that's it, you don't get the land cover coloring that should be on there. And again nothing has changed with the new updates
