SLOW and UNRESPONSIVE
I have been using it extensively for quite some time so here are my comments; App is extremely slow to respond. For instance, saving a waypoint takes 15-32 seconds before the app becomes responsive again. Switching to offline is the same lag. Gaia GPS is instantaneous and quirk free. Make sure you download offline maps otherwise it will be extremely more frustrating even if you have decent cell service. You cannot undo a Delete so be careful! Aerial maps when zoomed in all the way are outdated by approx. 5 years... why!!! :( Topo view does not have as many Topo lines as on Gaia GPS (7.5 min)... why not !!!? I do like the icon symbols to help identify features and of course the landowner info. To summarize, I will not be renewing my subscription as this App needs lots of work. Gaia GPS is much more responsive and user friendly. Running on an iPhone 6, iOS is up to date, deleted app and tried installing again as they suggested. Still no improvement.
Great App! 5/5
So nice to not need to carry a GPS and have so much information easily accessible. If in an area with no cell service just save the maps before leaving home! Great scouting tool also.
Amazing app 5/5
This app changed the way me and my family hunt! We use to just go about to the areas we knew like the back of our hands. With this app we know all areas like the back of our hands!
Not worth upgrading 2/5
This app never updates. I’ve lived at my residence for over 3 years and it still shows the previous land owner. Same for one of my brothers properties and several friends properties. I also noticed that the images do not get updated either. Viewing property around my work where multiple warehouses have been built over the last few years and it doesn’t show them or any of the progress but Google Maps and Google Earth do. DO NOT PAY FOR THIS APP.
Customer for life 5/5
Amazing personal service.. not into typing a lot so just know I love it... from nyc-denver
Great app 4/5
Great app just needs a map sharing capability and it will be the best out there
Great app that keeps evolving 5/5
By Frank p 2122
This app just keeps getting better. Be sure to use offline feature in airplane mode!!!
Great app, and awesome help! 5/5
This app is awesome! If you’re hunting the plains of South Dakota or the mountains of Idaho, this the app for you! It lets you by-pass purchasing a held held GPS for hunting, and let’s you transform your phone into one, saving you both weight on your packs in and money in your wallet! Just make sure to download your maps prior to your hunting trips, and you’ll never be let down!
Best Outdoor App Ever 5/5
Even if you never hunt a day in your life this will be the most useful outdoor app you own. Foresters. Hikers. Kayakers. Fishing. Driving. This app is awesome. We use it to help navigate wildland fire effects and to support research through accurate and highly relevant navigation and tracking for our people. It’s natural resources management applications are astonishing.
Great app, however the offline doesn’t seem to work for me at times and it has trouble loading my location periodically.
Worth every penny 5/5
By Lr precision
You won't be disappointed. It has been extremely handy this hunting season I'll buy it every year.
App is getting a lot better! 4/5
This app has come a long way! It is definitely my go to app for hunting, planning and just general hiking.
Very useful maps and layers!
An Apple Watch app would be great. Something simple so I don’t have to take out my phone while on the trail. Like only active when using the tracker function. To that end, integration with Apple health would be fantastic as well. The tracker has a lot of untapped potential!
Inaccurate property lines 4/5
It’s a awesome app for hunting other than the property boundaries being very inaccurate ! I’m just glad i know where my lines are
Truly a lifesaver 5/5
By Cheque Peirwe
This app is incredible in what you can do with it. Cannot imagine hunting or fishing without it . Brad B. WI
Love the app. 5/5
Would love to have an option to see the major and minor game movement times for the current gps coordinates.
Great APP 4/5
Love the APP. Works great for hunting and locating my property lines. Wished the info was updated quicker. Bought my property a year ago and my name still isn’t attached to my property.
NM sheep hunter 5/5
By NM sheep hunter
I have used this app on my archery deer hunt and now using on my NM Barbary sheep hunt . I always know exactly where I am at and can see exactly where I want to go . I just spent 4 days in sheep camp with 6 friends and all of them were going to purchase this app as soon as they got home.
Awesome App worth every dime 4/5
By western states nomad
I don’t usually write reviews, so you gotta know this app is worth it if I’m taking time to do this. I have used this for several years now. This latest update is great. The only challenge I the past was saving maps. It’s was a pain, in that you had to click to highlight the sections to be saved, and you usually ended up clicking a lot of terrain. This update makes saving maps so easy, do you want to save 5 miles, 10miles, or 150 miles. Click and save, that easy. I tend to us this app more that my stand alone gps. This is so much easier and works much smoother now. I highly recommend this ONxmap program. John Dehart western states hunter.
Very useful 4/5
5 stars for 3D satellite mapping. Google earth still far more useful it that area.
Amazing hunting tool 5/5
Only thing I would ask for is to add WMA boundaries for Waterfowl.
Great App 4/5
Love this app but you’re competitors all have wind/scent animation, weather cast & peak kill times. I’m waiting patiently for your next update to include these features so I can begin using 1 app for everything. Any idea when this might happen?
Best app for hunters, hikers, adventurers 5/5
Been using the app and website for over a year now. I use them to help plan and execute any adventure whether hunting, hiking, or backpacking. So much information contained in one place.
Don’t trust 1/5
Don’t use it for hunting or trapping it is not accurate you can get into a lot of trouble if you trust it.
Great performance compared with previous versions 5/5
By i have a big head
This version works great. The app is very responsive and pretty accurate.
I use it for hunting, identifying landowners for downed firewood, and in my duties as municipal Zoning official.
Great app all around. Best feature is the off line more that keeps up with your location with no cell signal. Just wish i wouldnt have to pay to have land ownership data and other things the app has to offer
Needs landscape support! 3/5
The quality of the app itself has been increasing steadily over the past year, but one feature that the app used to have, but was taken away is landscape view. Doing this has pretty well rendered the app useless for my application, as I have my iPad hard mounted in the landscape position. I have emailed the developers on more than one occasion, and all they can tell me is that it is coming, but have not given me a date. I can’t imagine that I am the only user that thinks that landscape view on a iPad is important. I will update my review when I see that this has been corrected.
This has made hunting great again 4/5
By Great print
The only thing I’ve found that I don’t like is that I can’t make a notes on my waypoints.
Great tool 5/5
Great app. I hunt across multiple states. From Idaho mule deer to Maryland sea ducks. The app allows me to recon and plan my hunts. Only thing I wish they would add is sea duck zones. Otherwise the app is great!
It’s okay 2/5
By Gunner 124679
I love this app for Indiana but when I upgraded to elite to spot property lines in southern Illinois in Gallatin county the app did not have any information so I basically wasted my money but oh well...
Works Great 5/5
I use it offline all the time because I go where there is no internet, the graphics are great and everything works on it.
Great App 5/5
Would like to see option to download between the 10 mi and 100 mi options. Also would like to see the ability to transfer the prairie dog layer to my handheld gps.
By Adam Satterfield
Love this app especially for hunting new areas and marking deer activity in your favorite areas
Get rid of your Garmin... 5/5
Since the release of the new version I haven’t turned my Garmin on one single time. It’s been removed from my pack permanently. Cache your map, run your phone on airplane mode, carry a power pack if it’s a multi day trip. Best money a Western hunter can spend. Thanks OnX !!!
Awesome app 5/5
I’ve been using this app for few years and love it I like that you can share a location it’s worked out nice when doing a adventure and want to give someone else the location, but I wish when hunting with a group and being in offline mode that you can still share with each group member your locations so you know where everyone is at.
Great app 4/5
Great app. Pretty much don’t need a gps anymore!
No need for GPS anymore 5/5
Wow I’m super impressed with the new features and the ability to download an area onto your phone. I no longer need my GPS. Just make sure you have enough storage on your phone to save all the map sections you will download. Keep up the good work!
Best app I've owned 5/5
Best tool in my belt! Period. I will not be in the woods on public land without it!
Works great! 5/5
I had the OnX chip in my gps but I sold it to use the app. Best choice I could have made! One less thing to carry. Nice having the satellite and took to look at. Also it’s always with me so I can scout anywhere I have my phone.
OnX is the best 5/5
Thank you OnX this is a great app. Works great, and turns my phone into a GPS. Offline mode is easy to use. Good scouting tool as well.
Below average 2/5
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!
Awesome app 5/5
I’ve been using this app for a month now and it’s the best thing I have in my gear
Camera feature 4/5
The only reason I didn’t rate it a 5 is because it doesn’t have a camera feature that will place gps coordinates in a tag on the picture, which can be very useful for many different circumstances.
Otherwise, I’m finding the app quite useful.
Two thumbs up! 5/5
Great app! I use for much more than just hunting!
World class Outdoorsman App. 5/5
This app simply blows any and all other hunting apps out of the water. I was skeptical of its own application while in the field, and boy was I wrong. This app allows for individual user customization of and continued growth on building their stockpile of hunting information.
Always recommending this to my friends and family if they ever bring up outdoor navigating, saving locations, stockpiling notes about various spots.
Doesn’t always work! 3/5
By AZ Huntress
I’ve been using this app for only a couple of months. Worked perfectly fine until I upgraded & paid for it!! Now it logs me out & loses my trail when I need it most! Just don’t pay for the map layers & you’ll be fine.
Excellent app 5/5
I have used this for the last several years. It is extremely helpful in tracking where I am at in various GMUS, private land etc. I am often in places where cellphone service is poor and saving maps for offline use is excellent. I also use this for my backpacking trips. Highly recommend.
Must have hunting app! 5/5
I use this app everyday. Wether I’m hunting or scouting, this is my best tool for the job.
Game changer 4/5
By Cut Wings
I burn my phone up using this app. I love being able to mark areas and look up land owner info. Only complaint I have that I really wish would be addressed is I wish it had up to date, sharper satellite images. Been using this app for at least 3 years now maybe 4 and it seems the satellite images haven’t changed. Other than that, all good 👍🏻
Important tool 5/5
Great scouting resource- especially the private landowner data!
