It's just OK. 3/5
The parcel data is definitely great. However, the app does not even allow you to share information with other onX users, let alone other platforms. Also, it would be much better to have a more USGS style topo map available with tree shading, etc rather than just contour lines and hill shading.
Great app! 5/5
Download off grid maps is awesome!
Love the app 4/5
By 363 864 583
Love the app but I would like to see and arrow on the maps showing my direction I am facing or walking and possibly a go to feature so in the dark I can navigate easily with an arrow
App is awesome 5/5
This app is awesome especially if you hunt out of town and need to get in contact with someone with land you would like to hunt as well as every public land opportunity that is out there
Love the concept-But!!! 5/5
When it works, it's great. But, I have issues with it working on cell usage. The parcel layer very seldom loads which is the main reason I purchased the app. Several emails to support hasn't corrected the issue. The last comment from them says it may be an issue with my cell reception. I can use other mapping programs with no problem? The field mode sometimes works then some times it doesn't. If this continues, I won't be renewing my subscription.
Update from last review. The app itself seems better after updates. The problem I have now is the maps aren't updated on a regular basis. It's now the fifth week into bow season and the map hasn't been updated. Gun opener is in a few days. I believe the map should be updated several weeks before deer season. The object of having ownership information is to make contact hoping to hunt these lands.
Support keeps telling me it's coming in a few days. That's been over two weeks ago. If you check their website they say my state has updates available.
The app is much better now. I believe it's still slower than I'd like but it's workable. OnX has made many improvements over the last couple years. If your looking for parcel information or public lands this is your app.
The latest updates are by far the best. The new interface is so much easier and better to use. I tried using it this weekend at one of my deer hunting spots. In the past, it be slow and take forever to get the map to load. This time it wasn't an issue at all. The map information loaded quickly and worked very well. A quick glance at the map told me where and who owned land parcels near me along with all state game areas. Great work!!!!
Great app 4/5
This is a must have for hunters. I would like to see a "sharing" feature. I use this for work as well to determine private landowners. Thanks for constructing a useful tool.
Awesome tool 5/5
I just spent 7 days in the mountains of Colorado, a new area for me. This app helped me find new areas with no signal on my phone. The option to download areas that I was going to hunt and be able to use that on my phone is the best tool I could carry with me other than my bow!
Doesn't work and no customer support 1/5
This app is junk and a waste of $$. No matter which layer I chose on the maps I only get a map which looks like a plat book. I contacted customer support, followed all of their directions, and supplied screen shots as requested. That is the last I've heard from support in over a month even though I've tried reaching out to them.
Apple support was awesome, and quickly refunded my money when I sent them my concerns and supporting documents.
Not reliable. 1/5
I used this app to layout my hunting camp, stands, blinds etc. while it was useful in doing that it ended up being a waste of time and effort. After paying the subscription costs and using it one season the company updated the app and erased all users saved info. So hours were wasted in camp on this app and I'm still looking for 2 blinds. I contacted the company who appeared eager to help resolve the issue, to no avail. They abruptly sent me an email saying the issue was closed and how would I rate their customer service. Poorly. There are many other name brand mapping services geared towards hunters with an app and online pages so don't waste your time with this one.
Love the App 5/5
By Chet E.
The app is awesome! It does have some bugs, which is to be expected with developing. Main things I have seen are minor details missing like logging areas not listed etc. over all it has helped me a ton with scouting for hunts. Great app highly recommend it!
Great Hunting App 5/5
I have an expensive GPS that I've used for years until this app came out. The offline maps are incredible for Hunting! Give GMUs, detailed enough to where I found a wallow, which lead to a great successful hunt. This is a great app, easy to use and much more intuitive than my expensive GPS.
The most important piece of hunting gear 5/5
The products from onX are the single most important tool and piece of gear hunters need before venturing into the field. The information this app provides is essential to not only an enjoyable hunt, but a legal one as well. The days of trying to figure out where you are in relation to property boundaries is over. The onXmaps Team Hunt app will show your exact position so that you are able to stay on public lands or private land you have permission to hunt on.
For $30/year per state or $100/year for all 50 states, you can avoid paying massive fines for trespassing or poaching an animal out of your hunting district. Try the demo and see how onX will change the way you hunt.
By Mike jones 56
Extremely helpful map. Would rather pay once and for the updates but not monthly
Great app 5/5
Love how it shows the property boarders.
Need to update counties in Illinois. Paid $99 and has not updated owners in 3 years
Best app Iv used 5/5
By Nd whitetails
Learned about it from Randy's podcast and have never looked back. The update is 5x better than the old version.
Wouldn't hunt, fish, backpack or scout without it! 5/5
OnX the app and company just keep getting better and better as the years go on! The times it has saved me from being misplaced are irrefutable. You've got a fan and customer for life. Whether I'm on a Mule Deer hunt in Central Idaho or a Turkey hunt in upstate New York, I depend on OnX Hunt Maps.
How about a little love in the form of an OnX tshirt or hat? I'd love to represent and share the word of such a great company with other outdoorsmen and women.
My go-to hunting app 5/5
By Scooter Barnwell
Very pleased with OnX Hunt as I use it not only for knowing land ownership but also for digital scouting, retaining records of sign and stand placements, etc. The new update is faster as well as more efficient. I like the new interface and ease of navigating the features!
This app is super helpful. Keeps me on the right property and the right trails. Great scouting Tool.
Photographer, not a hunter 5/5
I've only used the demo so far, but LOVE this App. There are so many places I've wanted to explore and was concerned about trespassing, turns out many of those places are on public lands. I was trying to visit one place that turned out to be on a military land and glad I didn't pursue that further. ;-) Wish there were cheaper subscriptions, but I certainly see the value as the information is very current.
Better than my garmin 650t 5/5
By B Dips Hydro
This app is awesome. As long as you download the map before you head out it works like a champ. Even when I don't have service it still shows where I am.
A lot of the guys I hunt with have this and don't even use their GPS's like me. I recommend this app for everyone.
I have the Hunting chip for my GPS that I paid $100 for and this app is way better. I still carry my GPS just in case my phone dies.
Was great... 3/5
This app *was* incredible.
Does not work 1/5
Totally does not work on my IPhone. Sent note to customer service and got a useless canned reply
Excellent App. Could be so much more though... 4/5
By Poo tang titty
I love this app. It has allowed me to keep track of my in-field gear and track animal movements.
Three suggested improvements:
1. I would like more way point labels including bobcat, javelina, feeder, food plot, etc.
2. I would like to be able to change the color of the way points and save multiple colors.
3. I would like it if I could track my kills on the app.: date, time, species, gender, and weather. It would be great if you could sort and view kills by year and/or by species so that you could monitor animal movement.
It would also be awesome if you could upload and/or save trail camera photos to the trail camera locations so that you could index and see which animals are where and when.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
Game changer! 5/5
Wether you're hunting waterfowl, upland, or big game this company's app is incredible. I hunt out of Minnesota and Wisconsin and this has made all my hunting on public land so much more informing. I also hunt out of Montana and this makes the homework for the hunt so easily accessible. I can confidently say I'm always on public land and that makes this product worth every penny.
Game changer. 5/5
Loving this app.
Not after the update 2/5
Love OnX and all the features it gives us. The biggest problem for me is the new and improved offline mapping. You used to be able to save offline maps according to the grid which could be a little daunting but aloud you to save large portions of offline maps and access them. Now with no grid you drop a pin on the map and it saves a five mile radius of the pin. Awesome feature for a tree stand but out west we have thousands of square miles and limited service. If you change plans or happen to spot a shootable animal in a location that didn't intend on being then you probably don't have a saved map for that area to ensure you are safe to hunt. Again great app for a sitting at home if you are one of those guys that hunts the same place every time and never change but If you hunt on the move I wouldn't count on this app. You can safely get all the same info in other areas that's more reliable. Won't be renewing my subscription.
Land ownership 3/5
Getting used to the app after using a GPS was a bit of a learning curve.
The only area I'm seeing that definitely needs attention is the landowner names. More than half of them in my hunt area are incorrect and only because of this, I give 3 stars. Knowing who owns the land is half the reason I paid for the app to begin with, so I can reach out to them for permission to hunt!
Absolutely the most important, most used, and favorite piece of tech I bring hunting. Would be hard to function without it and I am totally a convert from the old GPS chip to the phone app, as well. I use it for looking up real estate info, too.
Best mapping software on the market 5/5
I bought a solar charger for my phone so I can run this app whenever I'm out hunting or back packing.
Was a 5 Star App, Then 3, Now 4 and Gaining Ground 4/5
By Committee Fan
I complained about the following issues with the previous update in August 2017. The ONX team responded and here's and the Sept revisions stacks up:
1. August - iPad display in Landscape mode. Now only Portrait. (This was not addressed in the current version, Sept '17)
2. August - Tough to save a particular location for Offline viewing. Once you select 5mi wide you lose the ability to zoom in to ensure you're covering the location you really want. Prior version was much better. (This issue was much improved in the Sept update...THANKS).
3. August - Search function seems goofed up. The App now won't go to a particular address? Prior version was spot on. (Much improved in the Sept update...again, thanks!)
The ONX development team obviously cares about customer satisfaction and is continuously improving this app. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Don't leave home without it! 5/5
By Huggy Baer
This is by far the best research tool you can get. Don't over look the importance of knowing where you are! Thanks for everything OnX!
Great app 4/5
I love this app. One thing I thank it needs to be a 5 star app is more way point markers some different colors and some for marking like acorns and other food spots you may find for deer. With thin I would give it a 5. It would be great to have maybe some different color markers for info so you could mark spots you would like to maybe look at again when the season in here or spots u would like to maybe hunt in the rut.
Other thin that great app best on the market.
Needs updated maps!! 2/5
By Barbara Sines
When are you going to update your maps?? The satellite images your using are 7 years old. And the laid over SDAT property lines are off significantly
Won't continue my subscription 2/5
I have this app that I paid for almost a year ago on the App Store subscription and it goes through 11/17, after the update to the new name it doesn't recognize me and makes me sign in for a new 7 day trial... frustrating!!!!! Doesn't seem to be anyway around it...
This tool is dope.
Love it!!! 5/5
Great app love it
OnXmap App Over OnXMap gps chip 4/5
By CL Mp User
The app works wonderfully and for me is much easier to use than the computer program. I like having a dedicated gps for mapping due to the ability to swap out batteries when the time arises, but I love the map layers the app offers.
One recommendation I would like to see is the ability to share map information with other users/hunters. OnX?
Great tool for the backwoods hunter! 5/5
Have used this the past two years in Idaho and is an amazing tool.
A couple small suggestions
-would be nice to add comments or pictures to waypoints
-would be nice to be able to add direct comments to the map that are similar to a waypoint but don't take up as much space. E.g. I checked this valley for wallows but didn't find any.
Paid for premium won't work 1/5
By fristrate hunter
Please get your service to recognize I paid!!
Phenominal App 5/5
This app truely is a game changer when it comes to hunting the public/private interface. If you're looking to get a Hunting Lease in an area, it's great to know the name of where to start looking for rights etc. And when you're in the field and someone tries to say you're on my land (lease, rights area, etc) always good to pull this out and say no, look here, the actual records show this is public land, not part of your ranch. The Forrest Service stuff is awesome, and most useful in my state. No BLM here, but out west I hear it's awesome on that.
Additionally, it's pretty good at finding out tax info for my practice when advising clients. While it is not 100% accurate on that front (nothing is) it is a great starting point.
Not as good 2/5
Last year I used this app constantly, this year I'm trying to use it but it mostly gives errors when trying to save new maps, the make a new map option isn't clear to find or use. I lost all my maps from last year with this new version. Very disappointing...hopefully this gets fixed before hunting season...oh wait, it is hunting season.
Absolutely an awesome map app! 5/5
This is an awesome app. I do wish the quality of the saved maps were a little better when offline though as far as when zoomed in all the way. 👍
Great tool 5/5
Great tool for planning hunts and marking areas while hunting.
Extremely Valuable Tool 5/5
As an avid traveling hunter who focuses solely on public land, this app is absolutely invaluable to me both for scouting ahead of the trip and for figuring out the lay of the land when I get there. Couldn't recommend it higher.
Hunt app 5/5
This is a truly great hunting app and has done wonders for me all over my state I hunt in. The new update is good. Please keep them coming and improving
Could be better. 3/5
Some plots are accurate and up to date others have owners that haven't owned the land since the 70s.
On x hunt 5/5
I absolutely love this app and all I have is the free version
Endless hours of E-Scouting made easy. 5/5
I have been using this app for years and watched it change names and design at least twice. The new OnX Map App is the best and it appears that will continue to get better. Keep up the good work.
The best "piece" of hunting equipment I have purchased 5/5
This app has really helped me to step up my hunting game. It's very easy to use and I have discovered some sweet hunting ground with it. I highly recommend it!
