    Got the paid premium app. There are some really practical and useful tools on it. One problem is that the current property owner info isn't always accurate. It's really great for finding government lands and has a lot of helpful tools. The topographical maps aren't contrasted clearly and the elevation markers are sparse. I've seen them improve over the last couple of years, so I'm hopeful that it will continue. Thanks OnX, team, for hearing us and making changes based on feedback.
  • 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.

    Sections of map disappear if you zoom in. I have used onX for several years. For some reason this year it has been going downhill. When you try to zoom in to get a better view of the map the state, BLM, block management sections just disappear. Then you can't see where you are. Not a good bug to have in the middle of hunting season. Yes I have the most updated version. Please fix this.

    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.

    I love this app. I use it for hunting often as it will still work without reception. It is very easy to measure line distance, easy to navigate to way points and it is really easy to mark locations. It is also handy to use while hiking to mark points of interest. I will warn though that your distance to way points is more accurate with full cell phone signal than without. You will get close but not dead on.

    I have been using OnX for several years, both as a scouting tool and as a live tracker/GPS in the field. As an app I have never been disappointed in its performance nor have I had any need to reach out to their support staff, which I hear is world class. This app has only ever been a powerhouse for me in times of need and I lean on it heavily. OnX truly has become indispensable to any outdoors trip I do. The battery usage in offline mode is very reasonable, and the features they add with each update make it continue to improve on itself over time. It makes navigation in the dark significantly easier, has extremely detailed maps with customizable overlays and pins, locates your position with pinpoint accuracy, and you can take meticulous notes from every situation. In fact, I consider it so important to my loadout that I also carry a sizable power bank to ensure that I can keep the GPS working, in case a trip takes a negative turn. I solo hunt often and OnX is my constant companion in the wild. I am glad to renew this service yearly as well as to support the team behind this incredibly useful app. Great product and thank you from a grateful customer.

    I love the app would be a 5 star except one feature is not working properly the weather when you click on an area doesn't display current information in fact says it was last updated December of 2001 not very helpful when trying to see current information. If developers could fix this issue and the ability to not send feed back with pictures in the app would change to a 5 star.
  • 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!!

    It works pretty well, but several features are missing or I can't figure out how to use them. 1. I can't import multiple waypoints or tracks from the mobile app 2. I would like a bread crumb trail to automatically start when the app is launched regardless of whether I choose to record a track or not. Although using the maps is pretty handy on my phone, I feel that I can always trust my GPS . onX I don't trust as much..

  • Solid Conservationist App Apr 11, 2019

    By Mr. Frantz
    The versatility of this App is second to none in regards to the realm of conservationists. Being able to see all public, private, leases, wilderness areas, weather reports, etc. all from one app AND being able to ping places you’ve hunted so you can remember them for the next time is just too handy. That paired with the unbelievably reasonable subscriptions there truly isn’t anything to complain about, a service like this I was expecting to pay $$$/ month. The customer service is beyond exceptional. I originally got signed up in Texas and use only the Texas OnX maps, I am now moving to Wyoming and when reaching out to support to see if I could get my states changed over there was no hassle. No, “well we can’t really do that” no, “well you have to pay a fee” no nonsense. I asked if that was something they could do and within 5 minutes they emailed me back politely letting me know that my request had been completed. Every conservationist in my family uses this, I would and do recommend this app to every conservationist I come across. Thanks for the awesome service OnX!
  • 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.

    Let it be known that even when the promo code says it's accepted, they will still bill you for the full amount if they want. I have screenshots showing my promo code was accepted and then they still billed me for the full amount. So once you hit accept, you never know what they're going to do with your credit card. Just use the free trial version with alternative emails. Don't waste your money.

    I've had xhunt for a couple years. I had the app on my phone and it just vanished after I did phone update. Now I can't find it in my play store or should I say they can't. I did get an email saying my payment failed. Yes, it did coz I got a new card. Funny they can send me that but can't find my account. I went to the play store to reinstall the app and the only option I'm given is an update button which I do of course but the open button is not working. What's going on.

    Ive had onX for a long time now. Quality has decreased. Clarity is terrible. Totally unreliable. Track will dissappear if tracker is paused. And sometimes even in an active track even with service. Losing all Reliability if needing to take the same path back in the dark. Thats whole point of a GPS tracker. GPS compass NEVER points north. Quality of maps is grainy, even downloaded maps have terrible clarity $30 for one state is a joke, other apps offer all 50 for $30. Switching to basemap
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lacks features Jun 3, 2021

    By russ nv
    Is ok only for finding private vs public land. lack of on screen lat/long or grid is very frustrating and i am struggling to find more use for it other than that. used a competitor for a while and figured i would try this for the season since the pro or tv hunters all push it. So far i am not a fan. I liked the competitors map layers more and that it showed my my location real time. With out having to go into a sub menu. Also while out scouting the competitor worked with apple car play. Not useful for back country hunting but was a feature i found useful for small game hunting or scouting access routes. 3 month of use so far. Will most likely swap back to the other company for next season. Update for the developers after contact from them: its that i cant have my location show on the MAIN screen that i dont like i did contact customer support and was told that that feature was removed.
  • 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

    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
  • Excellent technical support Nov 14, 2021

    By JimMarcantel
    Being that I am, from time to time, technologically challenged, it come to me as no surprise that I often cause myself trouble. A week or so ago, I noticed two separate charges to my credit card for OnX Hunt. After sending an email asking about the nature of this double charge, I promptly received an email clarifying that I was charged twice because I had created two accounts; one account subscribed to Elote services on a monthly basis, and another account subscribed to elite services on an annual basis. Acknowledging that the error was mine, I replied thanking the technician for helping me understand the cause of my problem, and asking them to please cancel the lesser used account, which was the annually renewed account. To my surprise and satisfaction, not only did the technical staff cancel the account, but they refunded my annual fee for the account I cancelled. Even though the error was my own doing, they refunded my money. Besides that, the app is great when outdoors, whether hunting, fishing, or just being in nature. I never leave home without it!
  • Best app I have ever used Oct 19, 2017

    By Nubbbbb
    This is my first review. Ever. I have been using OnX Hunt for a few years now. I cannot stop recommending this app to everyone I talk hunting with. I mark everything. Trails, tracks, rubs, scrapes, roosts, kills, sightings, treestands, blinds, trail cameras.... everything. At first I used it to keep inventory of my gear and where it was left. Now I share a few hunting spots and hunt some friends ground as well. They are now able to see where the trail cameras, stands and blinds are and can hang theirs accordingly. If I need or want them to check a cam? No problem. I can show them exactly where it is. From satellite and topo maps I am able to scout a lot from the air before I ever step foot on the property. And having landowner info is AWESOME when bow season is over and we change gears and start predator hunting. I measure, figure areas, scout, drop waypoints for everything. Best. App. Period. I will continue to pay for this app and will continue to recommend it to anyone that truly takes their hunting seriously. Thank you for creating an app that is, in my opinion, one of the best tools a hunter can have in his pocket.

    Got the paid premium app. There are some really practical and useful tools on it. One problem is that the current property owner info isn't always accurate. It's really great for finding government lands and has a lot of helpful tools. The topographical maps aren't contrasted clearly and the elevation markers are sparse. I've seen them improve over the last couple of years, so I'm hopeful that it will continue. Thanks OnX, team, for hearing us and making changes based on feedback.

    I love the app would be a 5 star except one feature is not working properly the weather when you click on an area doesn't display current information in fact says it was last updated December of 2001 not very helpful when trying to see current information. If developers could fix this issue and the ability to not send feed back with pictures in the app would change to a 5 star.
  • 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.

    Had the exact features I was hoping for in a hunting app and was easy to use, just buggy. I had to restart the app many times while using it, even though all my other apps were working normally. Problems included things like not connecting to GPS signal (but did right away in the exact same place once restarted) or delete a waypoint, but it wouldn't actually leave the map until you restarted the app.
  • 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.

    I can pick where I want to scout. It's great to mark last blood or the harvested animal . Satellite pictures is out dated some of the public land I went to in October 2021 was completely different so it forced me to change my plans for hunting area.
  • 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.
  • Tool location on Right Side of Screen Jan 18, 2021

    By indians055
    I have really used this tool this season. This is my first year with onX and I absolutely love it. It has saved me time and headaches hunting in the Midwest of my home state of Missouri. I have pre scouted lands with the app and found new public ground. I have scouted a lot from the comfort of home. My biggest complaint is the location of the tools along the right side of screen. It never fails you select the location button with your finger or part of your finger when pinching and rolling and scrolling through the map which brings you back to your location. I wish they would move the on screen tools to fix this and make it more users friendly. If my friends don’t have onx I make sure they get it. I love this app but they could make it better by changing this.
  • Awesome app, could use one added feature! Feb 12, 2021

    By Wile E. Coyote 123
    Very handy app, the tax address makes contacting land owners much easier. There are really only two complaints I have. 1) The landowners displayed on this app are 2-3 years behind on the fields that recently changed owners. Otherwise it works great. 2) One other thing that would be sweet is if they could have land parcels be highlighted/shaded green and red based on either the owner or individual parcel (similar to how the public land is highlighted) so it was easier to keep track of where you have hunting permission over large areas, I use two colors of waypoint pins but that gets very cluttered and messy. When you click on a parcel and the information window pops up, if they could just add a “green”, “red” or “none” shading button so you could easily distinguish whether or not you have permission on a section or individual parcel and where the property lines are from a wide point of view. (We have a lot of small parcels that make up 1 sq/mi sections so for coyote hunting it can get hard to remember what is a go and what is not especially if certain members of the group aren’t familiar with the area) If those two things could be updated/added this would definitely be a 5 star app!

    Sections of map disappear if you zoom in. I have used onX for several years. For some reason this year it has been going downhill. When you try to zoom in to get a better view of the map the state, BLM, block management sections just disappear. Then you can't see where you are. Not a good bug to have in the middle of hunting season. Yes I have the most updated version. Please fix this.
  • Nov 5, 2021

    By Todd Bollinger
    It works pretty well, but several features are missing or I can't figure out how to use them. 1. I can't import multiple waypoints or tracks from the mobile app 2. I would like a bread crumb trail to automatically start when the app is launched regardless of whether I choose to record a track or not. Although using the maps is pretty handy on my phone, I feel that I can always trust my GPS . onX I don't trust as much..

    Always had a good time using this app until recently. Now, images load and unload at will on the map, temperature and wind don't work either. Cleared cache as well as reinstalling but this did not fix the issue. Have seen multiple others facing the same problem. Not very impressive for a $100/yr service, considering canceling my renewal.

    So here is my review of the onX Hunt app I do really enjoy it only thing I would like is to see more verity in the waypoint feature, ie icon of a trail camera, blinds, treestands, bedding area, scrapes, rubs, food plots. But I would agree that using this app will improve your hunting with seeing weather, wind, boundary lines, owners, I do think this app will set you up for a great hunting experience.
  • 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.
  • GPS Moving Dec 26, 2020

    By cbeach97
    I use this app constantly, I’ve noticed a lot of times my GPS tracker will constantly move around and never stay in one spot. When I’m hunting and want to find where my blind is, the blue dot that tracks me is never consistent and always moving even when I’m standing still despite having the newest iPhone available and location on - it’s never consistent. Also, I noticed when I zoom in it becomes blurry, especially trees or parts of our property where I want to look at more closely and the UI is nothing like Google Maps which is crisp and clear as day when zoomed. This app is incredible but I feel as if more work can be done on that front. I don’t personally know how to fix the constantly moving gps dot or the blurry zoom, but just a thought!
  • Some many issues this hunting season. Sep 5, 2018

    By Dhdjdkvknrjdnnfndk
    OnX has been an important part of my hunting prep, planning and hunting for the past 3 seasons. This year I had scouted all summer with it with no issues until the week before season. I get into the backcountry and all my saved maps didn’t work. The next weekend they fixed the issue so all the maps now showed again but now everyone in my elk camp with an iPhone couldn’t see topo just the imagery .... this has been the case for the last 10 days. Almost worthless when trying to navigate without lines all week and extremely frustrating when you put some much effort preparing for season to be left with an app that won’t work. I am confused on how I have had no issues the past two seasons but the season even the basics for navigation would not work. :(
  • Off Grid download malfunction Aug 24, 2018

    By Non-X
    On the face OnX has potential and really the only reason to get it for me was the ability to use it for gps when off grid. Seriously if you are on grid then it might be slicker but functionally the same as google maps. Needless to say it takes too long to download map sections to the phone that I have been timed out each time I’ve tried to use it. Still no off grid maps. Waiting 40 minutes for a 300Mb file to down load is not acceptable. The cherry on the cake is that I called them today to see what is going on and the Friday before elk opener they have decided their elk hunting is more important than supporting their product. Yeah, I get it cause I’m going elk hunting with or without their maps. Time to dust off the Garmin 60CSx tried and true.
  • 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 had xhunt for a couple years. I had the app on my phone and it just vanished after I did phone update. Now I can't find it in my play store or should I say they can't. I did get an email saying my payment failed. Yes, it did coz I got a new card. Funny they can send me that but can't find my account. I went to the play store to reinstall the app and the only option I'm given is an update button which I do of course but the open button is not working. What's going on.
  • 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.
  • Lacks features Jun 3, 2021

    By russ nv
    Is ok only for finding private vs public land. lack of on screen lat/long or grid is very frustrating and i am struggling to find more use for it other than that. used a competitor for a while and figured i would try this for the season since the pro or tv hunters all push it. So far i am not a fan. I liked the competitors map layers more and that it showed my my location real time. With out having to go into a sub menu. Also while out scouting the competitor worked with apple car play. Not useful for back country hunting but was a feature i found useful for small game hunting or scouting access routes. 3 month of use so far. Will most likely swap back to the other company for next season. Update for the developers after contact from them: its that i cant have my location show on the MAIN screen that i dont like i did contact customer support and was told that that feature was removed.
  • 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!

Quality of maps is grainy, even downloaded maps have terrible clarity $30 for one state is a joke, other apps offer all 50 for $30. Switching to basemap
  • 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.
  • 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
  • So out dated Sep 25, 2018

    By Dr. McBride
    These maps or so completely out dated it's not even funny. None of the owners of properties are correct the property boundaries are 25 feet off of actual boundaries they do not have the correct boundaries for hunting zones they're off about 190 yards and I know that's because I got a huge fine from fishing game because I was 90 yards in a different zone this is the worst app for hunting it's going to get you tickets and thrown in jail then it's gonna do any good for you and on top of that they don't even allow you to go past the seven day free trial without charging $30 to your iTunes account shutting everything down because you're is no credit card attached to that iTunes account to pay the $30 I did not want to pay them in the first place. I even went in and made sure that auto renew was shut off and when I went back it was turned back on by Apple themselves just so they can shut my account down from being able to update any of my other apps.
  • New Update....BAD! Aug 19, 2018

    By KPED0307
    I wouldn’t write a review if it wasn’t for the fact on how disappointed I am with the new updates for the phone app and desktop. Before the recent updates I loved the app and was telling other friends and family that hunt public land here in Texas about it. I really don’t understand why they chose this new satellite image where it looks like it’s not clear at all (grayish) until your dang near zoom all the way in before it clears up. They also took away the feature where the last zoom ( on older versions) you can see the change of terrain i.e. pines trees vs oaks trees. Here in Texas that feature is really crucial because knowing where specific areas that have oaks eliminates excess hours of useless scouting in the pine areas or areas of no interest. I really hope I’m not the only one dealing with this and that it becomes a bad enough issue they go back to how it was. It’s still a good app as a whole but those missing features are really irritating.
  • Problem with ap Dec 27, 2018

    By old Mt hunter
    I have had this ap for sometime now. At first it was a workable program. Living in Montana the cell service isn’t good where the hunting is good. I could, can deal with down loading maps before going a field. And I did that years ago. The land has not changed but the program has, its harder to load, slower to load, and I lost all the old maps I loaded years ago. Going down a road, interstate, or walking afield the program takes to long before it’s useable. If I can out walk it(program) something has to go. I have tried removing layers but the down load is still to long. While standing on a hillside that I knows turns to private and no fence line isn’t the time to wait to maybe get a screen to find out if the buck is on public land. I’m glad I didn’t throw away my maps because I’m really thinking about canceling this ap!!
