onX Backcountry Ski Maps app reviews

  • Super fun 4/5

    By rabbit6473
    I’ll review again once I learn more about the app. First ski tour was super fun!
  • The best! 5/5

    By Mel Maroon
    I use it all the time. I use it to find trails, and to measure distance. Love the app!
  • No Dog Info 4/5

    By andi645
    This app would be a 5* but I don’t see info on whether dogs are allowed on certain trails or not. I have to use another app to find this out.
  • No slope shading? 3/5

    By Sirhc Nosckire
    Pretty shocked that a backcountry ski map lacks slope shading. Seems like table stakes.
  • Don’t trust it 1/5

    By mtskinner
    This app constantly crashes. Doesn’t keep my track. Pretty much useless. I use the hunting version for everything and it works fine. Same with every other tracking app I use, except this one.
  • Europe? 2/5

    By SeaAlps
    Doesn’t have slope angle nor any other data for backcountry in the Alps (France) am I missing something ?
  • Snow Mode 4/5

    By eoheliski
    Liking the new snow mode version. I would like more descriptions and tips. I’m sure that will continue to get better with more time.
  • Slope angle is key feature , with Gaia you have to pay more for slope angle view 5/5

    By vilynn
    Great ux
  • Best Navigation App!!! 5/5

    By Backroads Buck
    I purchased other nav apps before, and a few were decent, but there wasn’t one that pulled together all the features I love like this one! But the best part of onX Backcountry is the customer service. A couple weeks ago my iPhone battery was dying. The Apple store swapped it out. I backed up my phone, but, of course, none of the passwords back up. I was locked out of my accounts. I went to reset my password but my linked email account was locked and I couldn’t get in. I sent a help request to the onX Backcountry help desk and it was only minutes before they responded, changed my email to my back up account, and sent me a temp password. Start to finish…only a few minutes and I was rucking on! There are no other companies I deal with that have a response time like that! None! The sense of urgency is understood! If you’re debating purchasing this app, hesitate no more! Awesome features, emails with hints and tips to get max usage, and a top-notch help desk if anything goes wrong! Professional from start to finish. I know I’ll be renewing when the time comes because this is a company I can rely on! Run your own race. Hike your own hike. Live your own life. Backroads Buck
  • Difficult to use and cancel 1/5

    By Slaytanicdavid2004
    They make it difficult to cancel. Every time I follow the link because I bought it through the website. It takes me to onXhunt to get another service. I still haven’t been able to cancel this subscription. I’m thinking this might be a scam.
  • Overpriced 2/5

    By jmfeeney35
    Not priced well for someone only using the app 3 or 6 months of the year. Add more subscription options. Right now it’s not a good value.
  • Great app 5/5

    By kimberdea
    Great app. Seems accurate.
  • Great product, shows my powder project contributions 5/5

    By 14jmartineau
    It seems to be a great mapping software. Excited to use it this winter.
  • OnX backcountry 5/5

    By Young Big Swede
    Best of the three gps mapping programs. Needs a way to manually enter coordinates for waypoints.
  • Mapping and tracking system is the same great but still could use some improvement 3/5

    By hunterhiker
    Overall I like the app. I have been using onX hunt for a few years and love it so I decided to give onX backcountry a try. While using the app in the field it’s easy to use and very reliable. With that said there are a few improvements I’d like to see… I would like the search feature to have some filtering based on difficulty, length, etc as of now the search feature is a little frustrating at times. I can’t seem to access some of the same map layers that onX hunt has. Lastly I wish you were able to toggle on and off interaction between the onX hunt app and the onX backcountry app (at the very least sharing waypoints). All things considered though I’m still enjoying this app so far
  • Great App for any back country activities 5/5

    By Thatguy Outdoors
    It’s got everything you’ll need.
  • A must have 5/5

    By cur823
    Simple and easy
  • First use- it is very easy! 5/5

    By AK98
    Easy and will be used in next Southern Sierra trip.
  • So nice 5/5

    By Frank Knucklz
    I’ve used quite a few and always have one or two critiques of each. OnX checks almost all those boxes. I’m still learning to navigate it some but so far, I’m super impressed!
  • Trail Finder 5/5

    By 0C1S3C
    Apparently I drive by hiking adventures all the time!!! Loving Back Country to find me convenient side road adventures all along thr way.
  • Awesome app lots of great features ! 5/5

    By Jennjenn1832
    I’d never heard of this one until I was watching a YouTube video and they mentioned it. I’m just starting to learn all of the features but so far it looks great & im excited to try it out on trail!
  • Legit 5/5

    By Birddog5340
    I have em all. I’ve been using the hunt app for several years, and the functionality of all three is outstanding. They turn my phone into a multi use tool that saves time and space.
  • Good app 5/5

  • Killer App!! 5/5

    By MandaJ23
    Super easy to use… it’s the Waze of hiking apps!! Love it!!
  • So far so good 5/5

    By MrBadger42
    Just started using onX in preparation for doing PCT sectional. It looks like it has what I need.
  • Challenging to use 2/5

    By Callmesmart
    I found this to be challenging to use. The images and advertisement look great, but I don’t have a ton of the trails in my area that are on this app. This doesn’t really give me anything that my old version of Gaia doesn’t. I got it on sale for $10. It’s extremely limited in its use (only to hiking trails). Doesn’t seem useful for hunting or 4-wheeling. They have different apps that cater to those for additional money. Maybe it’s what you’re looking for, but it’s not for me. I won’t be renewing.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By mtpowderskiing
    I absolutely love this app! I spend a lot of time on rivers around Montana and use it to explore and identify campsites, put ins, etc. It has become an invaluable part of my outdoor adventures. Highly recommend.
  • Not user friendly 2/5

    By Runner307
    I had high hopes knowing they provide an outstanding hunting app. After paying for this app, I rarely use it and often rely on the free apps I have from before. They have a lot of work to do before they should start charging for a service.
  • Forced Free Trial 3/5

    By Paul Haney
    I did not want to start my free trial when I’m home for the next 7 days. I was just checking out the app. You should ask me if I want to start the free trial.
  • Awesome app 5/5

    By Rugbytj
    Great for backpacking
  • Help please? 3/5

    By jaguarsnake1108
    Onx icon whited out yesterday and I’ve been unable to open the app 2 days. I went to appstore to ck for update and there is an update and my iPhone software version (iphone 6) is incompatible. I checked my phone for updates, it’s up to date; ckd apple website and ios 13 is not available for my phone. I need a link to download the version onx i just had before update please. I love this mapping software. It’s best for trails hands down!! Please help. Star rating based on the app just abruptly quitting without me updating or anything and icon turning white.
  • Best camping and hiking app! 5/5

    By Chorbear
    Highly recommend!

    By Checco~
    Can’t use it with out an account. Can’t make an account. :(
  • Great app 5/5

    By Gary-Hog
    Loving the app so far. Only used a couple of times, but it’s easy to use and accurate. Heard about it on Backpacker Radio podcast.
  • Very easy to use! Good price 5/5

    By dodge the noid

    By skohlmey
    Offline maps could be more flexible…. Not very impressed with the information include for trails and recreation areas.
  • Easy to use! 5/5

    By bondurantj
    I’ve used onX hunt for years! I love being able to use backcountry for hiking!! Extremely easy to use!
  • Needs bikes and climbs 4/5

    By harrisonjg
    Since onX bought mt project I was hoping to have a one stop shop for bike trails hike trails climbs and land ownership. I like the interface and the snow and his features, but I would use more if it had bikes and climbs too. Hopefully they add mtb project data soon
  • Good app 4/5

    By AMStev
    It’s a great app. My only hangup is that when you click on nearby trails, you end up with stuff that’s quite far away and nowhere in the area that you’re looking at.
  • Great maps and hiking trails 5/5

    By Wildsong4
    Everything you need in a map. And the offline maps feature is awesome!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Iujbxixnsosoxjxjdisonxi
    Love the detail and ease of use
  • Great for backpacking 5/5

    By 16-208
    Love this app
  • Excellent 5/5

    By FreeForMeNotForThee
    Love onX. The product. The people. The mission. Every bit is top notch.
  • Pres of const co. 2/5

    By Bob Erb
    Great for a trip of adventure. Excellent tool
  • Big fan 4/5

    By shaymos94
    Great app and worth the money. I used to use(and still do use)hiking project. OnX has so many awesome tools that distinguish it into a class of its own. The only feature hiking project has and onX doesn’t that I really enjoy having is the elevation information.
