Great buy! 5/5
I researched and debated buying this a app but took a gamble that paid off. Some reviews will say "not very accurate" and some say "very accurate".
I will say this is very accurate and better yet works in airplane mode!
I found a BLM surveying marker, pulled my phone out and it put all the worries in there place. The app had me off by maybe 10' feet.
That's about dead on in my book! My garmin showed the same.
Bring your gps as a back up, but you'll find yourself on this app 99% of the time.
Version 4 updates. 4/5
9 updates to version 4 and still no fix to the portrait/landscape function?
By Dave Matthew
The updated version is superb. This app is versatile and detailed. Extremely helpful.
Much better 5/5
The update had some issues. But those seem to be worked out now. Customer service was responsive when I reached out to them if not super prompt, probably pretty busy.
Regardless, used this on a recent hunt in unfamiliar area, and was well worth the cost. Worked way better than my dads gps with basic maps.
Map Tools Area 4/5
I love this app, but I miss the ability to change the outline colors on my areas like the last version allowed for.
I moved away from this app... 3/5
...after I gave it a harsh review 3 years ago. It's much improved since my last review. There are issues and annoyances that are well covered here by other reviewers so I won't pile on and rehash those issues.
I'm curious when the Property Owner info is updated, though.
Mine is awfully out of date.
For example; I've been in my new property for over a year now but it still shows the previous owner's information. Same as my sold properties.
Keep improving. I found it much more useful this year.
Great just have a problem with it 4/5
I love how it works but the problem I have with it is it doesn’t distinguish between open units and draw tag units
Worth every penny 5/5
It does exactly what they claim
So many issues w/ freezing my phone 2/5
I wish this app would stop freezing almost every time I use it. The app is awesome when it works, but when it freezes it’s all bad for my entire phone. Yes I narrowed the problem down to this specific app. It’s a wonderful tool but so inconsistent on how often it works properly without freezing my entire phone not just this singular app. Please address and fix. Thank you. Happy to give it 5 stars when it’s fully usable again.
Great for public land hunting 5/5
I used this out west hunting and it was really beneficial when hunting in unknown areas where you can find those spots that you aren't sure of ownership. It works great back east, we just don't have a lot of public land. Offline maps are super helpful. I never broke out my GPS.
Still broke 1/5
So the Earthmate app that works with my InReach doesn't have good pvt land data, and I'm back to OnX, which utterly failed me in 2016.
And, it still isn't set up to download complete maps into the phone for use off line. It's as if OnX expects me to hunt a small patch of land (maybe that's why the public layer obscures the public but not pvt land?). What I want is to define my area in terms of what tags I have, then download the whole area I can hunt in one go. Right now, I'm in a damned hotel downloading little five mile sections of a huge zone that has zero ATT coverage at 40 minutes per zone. Annoying.
Liked it then it stopped working right 4/5
Only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because it used to work great.
Great offline maps 4/5
Had a great experience with this so far. Only issues I noticed is the maps are older from what's out there now. Many time roads were not in map or the maps road were not there no longer. Still great for you to be able to use the maps to learn new areas
Happy with it 5/5
I am happy with how this map works. The offline function is better than the prior version. Their customer support is very good and friendly folks from up in Missoula. When they updated, I lost some way points never got hem back, but they were nice and helpful and updated my subscription. Can't wait to take it out this deer season. Have already had it on many scouting trips and found it very useful.
This App has potential to be great. They need to look at how I can define the area I want downloaded. The option to download 5, 10, or 150 mile radius does not work as well compared to how the Navionic App allows you to download an area. If they fix it to work like the Navionics App for lakes, then they will have a winner. Other than this issue, I have used this app for 2 years and has been fantastic if I have reception but still very useful if you download an area prior. But this is the best iPhone hunting app available.
Update: I changed my rating to 4 stars as that is what I originally wanted to rate. 4.5 stars if it were possible
Awesome app for hunting 5/5
This is a great app for hunters or even hikers. Helped me figure out where private property is and isn’t. Would recommend to anyone
Great App 5/5
By Ty from FL
Instead of buying a new GPS just purchase this app. It's great you cant create waypoints and custom marker locations. I have Verizon and havent lost service in any of the woods I hunt although I do save the maps for offline just incase. Eveyrthing I wanted. thanks.
Works perfectly 5/5
I have had no problems with this app i can mark my truck, camp, game trails, bedding areas and much more I can be in an open valley or dense forest and it always finds me
The only thing I would like for the app to improve on is the finding my phone speed it can take a little long and the distance from point to point when you check a distance over a mountain it thinks it's flat ground so it doesn't read the map correctly but other then that it's perfect
Found a concealed road! 5/5
Well done! I have been hunting a large ranch for 18 years and with onX, on day one of using it, with the live GPS tracking feature, we found a road, going down to the river, that we never new existed because it's beginning is overgrown. I'm anxious to see what new area, and game, we can get into. Go onX!
Great app! 5/5
I used the app on my scouting trip. It worked great. I have my father in law using it too! I would recommend to others. I haven’t updated the app because all the issues with the update. My hunt is in 2 wks I want it to be working on my hunt. Other than that issue it’s and great app to use.
Always know where I stand 5/5
Love this app! It's truly the most helpful tool to no where I am, and who's property is beside me.
How about some instructions 4/5
I love this app but I’m not a computer whiz nor am I the little geek that wrote the code. Some easy to understand instructions would get you the fifth star. Still, very useful.
Why do I need a password 1/5
Requires a password. Nope
Awesome App 5/5
By AMP Planner
I haven’t used this app for very long but I already love it. I am able to download maps to be able to use ‘off the grid’. I can mark key spots on the hunting camp (gates, trail cameras, the lodge, etc.). I can see property lines and ownership as well as which hunting zones I’m in for specific game laws. This may be a ‘must have’ app for hunters or general outdoorsmen.
First time user 5/5
Hunting in an large area with a mix of public and private lands and no internet access. Off grid feature is great. We are just in the free trial period and still learning all of the available features but have found this app has great functionality.
Great tool 5/5
This app is one of my favorite tools.
Awesome APP 5/5
This is an awesome app, easy to use, and much better than paying for expensive devices that are hard to learn how to use. Would recommend this APP to anyone going in the outdoors.
Like the new version 5/5
Working great. New way of saving maps is nice. Did like the granularity offered by the old way but i am adjusting.
No more Garmin 4/5
Stopped carrying the Garmin 60 csx! The onxhunt app on my smart phone works pretty good. Still needs some work though.
A hunting necessity 5/5
Haven’t had any issues and love being able to pull up offline maps to check property boundaries. Especially great for keeping off unmarked property like Potlatch which requires the hunter to know when they enter boundaries.
Needs work still 2/5
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.
Still needs a lot of work 2/5
During an upgrade, all of the waypoints I had saved while scouting for days were lost, and onX support has not been able to figure out the cause nor have they found a way to restore them.
This app frequently crashes for no good reason, and here are a lot of UI inconsistencies and glitches that need work.
Awesome App 5/5
By Tyger swoods
This app is such a huge help when it comes to tracking your trail, mapping specific spots and even measuring distance!! GREAT APP
Not impressed 1/5
By Bloomer 85
I'm not sure where they get the information from but my home in Wisconsin is listed as public hunting grounds. There's going to be some very unhappy hunters if they're caught on mine
Best Source 4/5
By far the best option out there, the only thing I can see that needs improvement is the satellite source is way out of date compared to others. Keep up the good work!
Use it every time I go out 5/5
Great app!! I used this map on my gps, and it works great. But the ease of grabbing your phone and having easy to use navigation and some many features even in offline mode, I almost always use my phone.
Awesome app 5/5
Best app I've ever had! Able to easily distinguish between private and public land/easily gain access. Awesome trail and road layers. Easily customizable. And Customer support is top notch. Couldn't hunt the checkerboard private/public of MT without it!
Best there is 5/5
Nothing compares. Best mapping app there is. Never bring a GPS anymore
Awesome, love seeing the boundaries and going offline when you have no service
Can't hunt the west without it. 5/5
By Reverend Night Train
Hands down the best hunting necessity besides your glass and your weapon of choice.
Well worth it! 5/5
Great app. I had heard about it for a long time, and never bought it. Finally did, and regret not doing it sooner. I use it all the time. They keep putting out good updates and it gets better and better. So worth the money for me.
Know where you stand! 5/5
By Water Reuben
After having used some other gps/satellite-based software, I am becoming more impressed and growing to love the ease and accuracy of OnX. I don’t plan my hunts or head backcountry without offgrid maps now. Thanks OnX!
Old maps 2/5
By AG 12
The maps on this app are old. I’ve seen a lot of property that says BLM, yet it’s private property. I wouldn’t trust it.
App developer says they update it every year. Well it’s been at least 2 years for Oregon.
Must have 5/5
Cant imagine hunting with out this app best tool I have in my arsenal.
Really great app
Such a solid app 5/5
By The Chinch
This is the first season I’ve had this app and I love it!! I live in central montana and love that you can waypoint what you think is watering holes to scout and actualy see if there is water there because a lot of times there isn’t.
Thanks so much for all your hard work on the new upgrades!
Great app 5/5
Used in the wilderness of Colorado, worked great, truly would be lost without it. Used the chips in GPS units before and loved them, however the app is much more user friendly and I will exclusively use going forward. Thanks!
We'd worth the money
Not as good as Gaia 2/5
By Paul from Montana
I toggle back and forth with Gaia when hunting the margins of private land. OnX does more clearly indicate public land and private land ownership, but from a navigation standpoint, the app is slower, less intuitive and inferior in all other ways to Gaia.
Amazing Tool! 5/5
This tool is critical for hunting in Colorado, where private property does not have be marked. This has helped keep me off of private property and on public land on multiple occasions. Highly Recommended!
