Dated maps. 1/5
The maps are dated, at least 10 years or more. Not going to buy after the trial period.
excellent but wish to sort sites by name 5/5
By Keys cool
Great app for folks who aren’t hunting as well. The USFS maps overlay perfectly and roads line up. Would like to see an enhancement where sites/waypoints can be sorted alphabetically. This would be helpful to view off my sites outside my area while viewing what waypoints are in it.
My go too app! 5/5
By rating on this site blows
Great customer service! How does a diy hunter like myself get by without this tool! Be a nonresident hunter in Wyoming without this app, next thing you know your in the wilderness getting a ticket. Montana miss the orange corner post bam trespassing! Not with this app!
Deer hunter 5/5
By chase taylor09
This app is amazing. Worth every penny.
Metal detecting 5/5
By Dirt Pirate
I don’t hunt but use this for obtaining permissions to metal detecting old home sights. Excellent in field app.
Easy and valuable 5/5
Great app! So easy to use. I am search water locations and mark them using waypoints.
Crash cuss repeat 1/5
Great product when it runs for more than 30 sec. Has been unusable since the last update.
This app is not only for those who hunt! It is an invaluable tool for people like myself who enjoy trekking the great outdoors. It contains all sorts of information about trails: parking, length, gradient, and even shows where lean to’s are located. It allows you to get current weather: precipitation, wind etc. and if you do want to bag a deer It is THE app you want. Heck, I would suggest every realtor get this app for the visual property boundaries shown on the map and who owns them. Thank you X! You are the best!
Waste of money 1/5
I was thinking of buying a gps but decided to try this instead. It’s pretty lousy . I honestly could not and would not recommend this to anyone. I would love to give all the details but this thing has wasted enough of my time and money . I will say the cheapest gps will far surpass this apps performance and most of the information that this claims to provide can be found online
Suggestions for a Great Hunting & Scouting App! 5/5
Absolutely perfect app for scouting land and saving locations! Here's some suggestions, need more color options and even more waypoint icons! And the colors need to transfer from you're computer to the phone app. I had everything color coded on my Mac and then downloaded the iPhone app and nothing carried over. Also when you're making a new waypoint you can only name it and chose an icon. We need to be able to pick the color there also so you don't have to save then click edit to go right back into it! Love this app though. It would also be nice to be able to move on the map in a direction other than just the North orientation.
Too much $$$$$$ 1/5
Way too expensive for product received. Other Apps $10 one time fee, not monthly charge.
Not able to save maps to off grid even though I have 500+ mb of storage. Very frustrating!
Been a user from the beginning! 5/5
I have been a user from the word go been threw all the changes and love it!!
Class Act Company 5/5
Two things I must say. First, this app is a must have. I don’t leave the house without it. The amount of information available through the layers is unreal. The big deal for me is I emailed them and recommended an update, and I just received an email (3 months after the initial reply) from an employee that said “just letting you know the update you and many others recommended is now live. Just wanted to make sure you got the information”. That to me says it all. Real people with a great product. I’m a life long customer. You wont regret this purchase!
Put it this way, I wouldn’t want this in a life or death situation 1/5
By map and compass
The frustration level with this expensive app is off the chart, for me. I regularly use (try to use, more accurately) this app off-grid or with very poor cell reception. Having downloaded the pertinent maps for use on an iPhone, I have been caught more than once trusting that the off-grid feature will quickly load the stored map. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. And when it doesn’t is not predictable. If you needed it to get out of some hairy situation, as a last resort, it might pick that time to fail you. It’s not as good as a dedicated chip in a gps unit, but it’s really good at letting you know you ought to upgrade and pay more for more maps, that presumably also won’t work flawlessly. Having to troubleshoot the product is a big problem when time is of the essence, and cell signal is invariably weak. Which almost always, if you are actually in the outdoors, hiking, hunting or fishing. Great idea, awful execution a lot of the time. I’ve been a user essentially since the product’s inception, but I’m done fighting it. It’s apparently become all about the money. For all the time I’ve spent troubleshooting the various versions of this thing, I could have learned to program my own mapping software that takes land ownership data from the various county assessors and produced something that is light and dependable. What an incredible disappointment. The standard IT answers of “turn it off, turn it back on again” and the like are great in an office environment, but a pretty sorry approach for the purposes for which this product is intended.
Keeps me honest. 5/5
By Baseball Bill
This has been a great help to ensure I stay where I should be. The features work well. Still have more to learn to be able to use the app fully. Only one minor item that I requested to be updated and that is the red property lines. I have a red green deficiency so it can be hard for me to see the red lines. I have put a request in to make the color changeable.
Hunting and fishin it should say. 5/5
By C tow
Just as great for hunting as it is for fishing. They also make updates to improve the user interface which is greatly appreciated.
best hunting app on the market 5/5
best app on the market for
hunting and customer service is the best
Good iOS App; insane pricing for GPS chips 2/5
I would give them 4 or 5 stars if it weren’t for their ridiculous pricing scheme. Plus, the empty dev responses to the legitimate complaints here are very troubling; it really comes off as an underhanded way to force you to shell out hundreds over and over. I don’t see how a company that treats its customers this way can last.
On X support team 5/5
The OnX support team is very responsive and extremely helpful. It spoke volumes when I ordered a hoodie and a shirt and the package was shipped via USPS. On the day the tracker said the package was delivered I was super excited to get my OnX Swag but my mail box was empty. I double checked to make sure there wasn’t a key to the package locker; there wasn’t. I checked with my property management team to see if they may of received it; again no luck. I waited a few days to see if the mail carrier might of just delayed it or placed it in the wrong mailbox with unfruitful results. I eventually submitted a claim on USPS.com, talked to my carrier directly, and even went to my local post office to try and figure out were my package may be. I received little to no help from USPS after a solid couple of weeks of following up and calling around. Eventually I contacted OnX directly to see if they had any ideas on how to go about talking to USPS or if they could submit a claim as a business. OnX informed me not to worry that I will receive a new shipment to replace the one USPS lost. They shipped me a new order that day via UPS. I now have my Order and am happy to know OnX doesn’t just treat their users as customers but actively try’s to help. I now fully support OnX as my GPS of choice because I know if I have issues they will be there to help.
Great support team 5/5
I had an issue with my app, contacted the developers, and my issue was resolved really fast! One of the best tools any hunter could have to keep you informed on exactly where you are and who owns the dirt you are standing on! 😀
Most Important Hunting App 5/5
By J Lockwood
I hunt a lot of public land, and it isn’t all fenced well and clearly marked. This app allows me to stay on land I can legally hunt. It is also super nice for getting land owner information when asking permission.
Great App but needs one thing 4/5
I started using this app last year and it was extremely helpful while hunting. I just wish that it had an app for my Apple Watch as well.
Would have given it a 4, but ... 3/5
By Mitchell Birdy
... the land ownership is a year behind, if not more.
Greatest invention ever 5/5
I use this app all day err day
Excellent app 5/5
This app does everything I expected and more. Mapping works perfectly. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs to know exactly where they out in the wild.
Best App 5/5
Always a pleasure using this app
Great app 5/5
This has been a great help hunting new areas and familiar ones. It’s great to know where private boundaries are and also state lines when hunting close to borders. The offline feature is great as well. This is easy to use and see where your at with the gps feature.
I Love This App 5/5
It’s fantastic I use it for all my Hunts and at least one a week at my job best app I have ever purchased.
Jack was really great.... 5/5
Thanks for helping me fix my renewal. I like your elite membership and the customer service is always above expectations...cheers!
Just want two states 4/5
I hunt two adjoining states and I don’t want to pay for all 50 states is there a way to only subscribe to the two states I want?
Better than a gps 5/5
By Nickie jj
I haven’t used my gps for a year since I got this smartphone app. Way easier to use and better mapping with so many layers. As long as I can still hunt I will be renewing it every year. I really love being able to research on a pc and save all of the info and it transfers to my phone. Awesome!
New Mexico Hiker 5/5
Love this application!
Great GPS app and outstanding customer service! 5/5
I’ve been an OnX customer for four years now and I have zero complaints. The app is great and the folks in customer service reply quickly and often when updates are required on the progress of any issues. There aren’t many apps out there that get maintained as thoroughly and with as much customer input as OnX. If you hunt it’s a must have and if you don’t see layers or details you want in a GPS/Landowner app suggest it and they will actually listen.
Almost perfect 5/5
One of if not greatest hunting companion app out there just needs some fine tuning and it will be perfect for anyone
Useful for public land hunters 4/5
It’s great to see private and public land borders, land contours, public fishing areas, etc. The only issue is the lines are a bit sometimes for the private/public borders. Other than that I absolutely love this app. Worth every penny.
This app is amazing but I have one request!? 5/5
Thank you for all your hard work to make this app a key part of my work. One thing I would really appreciate you adding would be landscape mode for iPad. That would make my life even better! Thank you for your consideration.
Great app 5/5
I bought the app for the hunting applications (just one state). It really has helped tremendously in identifying accessible lands. Just used it in another state for backpacking trails and it was very useful. Also used the fire layers to find morels this year. All around solid app for these purposes!
Three dudes out! 5/5
OnX has been a great tool. Offline option is so useful. I was riding with family miles back in the cascades and ran across three dudes who had to get back to there vehicle. I was testing offline option on my phone and told them “I don’t know where we are, never been this far back” then told them to follow us back using onX till familiar land. Just a great resource. Even better fur my hunting research.
Tremendous product! 5/5
I’ve been using this product for many years now(Since it was HuntingGPSmaps). It is not only a tremendous product, but the company continues to improve it and further develop it. It’s better and more comprehensive, every year.
Hands down the most helpful app 5/5
This app is like my bible. Being a freelance hunter this app is a vital part of my day to day hunts and if it wasn’t for it I wouldn't have the ground I have to hunt. Every hunter should have this on their phone hunting public or private land I promise you it will come in handy.
Maps are slow and UI is terrible 2/5
I’ve written with suggestions before but the developer doesn’t seem to listen. The whole offline map experience is terrible and it would be so much better to add an auto caching feature where it automatically caches maps as you view them. Currently the system of caching maps is painful. Also the thing that drives me nuts more than anything is the constant popping up of “About this location “ accidentally while just moving and scrolling around the map. I have suggested that this be a long press to activate so as to avoid it constantly popping up. Again that was a year ago I made that suggestion and we still have it the same. Other features like marking waypoints and navigating to them is counter intuitive and clunky. I find Garafa’s GPS Kit to be the best actual GPS mapping interface app available and wish OnX worked more like this. The maps take forever to load also on OnX and could be improved to be so much better. On a positive note some things I really like are the map overlays showing different public lands are really useful. I also pay for private land overlays which is by far the biggest reason I use this app. The other thing I really like is it seems to really show trails very well, even some obscure not-very-known trails which has surprised me. The pricing is kind of high for private land and I would prefer more reasonable prices especially if you want to add other states beyond the one originally purchased. I don’t need all 50 sates, just maybe 3-4. Not too keen on subscription models either btw. Overall if the developers re-designed the UI from the ground up it would be far better. If I could get Garafas GPS Kit with private land overlays I’d never use OnX again probably because it’s just frustrating and clunky to use. The whole hunting theme is a turnoff too. I’ve suggested they just change the name to OnXTopo or OnXMap - something more inclusive of other outdoor activities. For now 2 stars maybe I will update if developers really truly listen.
Having trouble opening onX in the field, only have had it a few days , using a friends last week and his doing same thing . We doing something wrong??
Changed my life!!! 5/5
I am able to enjoy so much more land then I ever would have without it. Especially low elevation land where private meets public.
I am a member for life.
Jonathan F 5/5
By fowl play guide service
I did the free trial and love it. I went ahead and bought the subscription and it is my favorite app on my phone. I got a new
phone and couldn’t get back logged in. I messaged them and they figured out what I was doing wrong the same day. Definitely worth the money! They will now disappoint!
Great customer service 5/5
Love the app for hunting and accessing public land and also knowing who owns what around me. Needed to add another state to my account but couldn’t figure out how, called customer service and the young lady was very helpful and nice , only took a few minutes and I was in business. Thanks for having a user friendly product and support system!
Excellent app 5/5
This app is a premier app for any outdoor activity. I love its features and the personnel who work there truly put customer service at top priority. Well worth it’s price.
rip off 1/5
they make sure the app works for the free trial to get you to buy it but once purchased it dosent do everything you had on the free trial sense i purchased the wasted 29$ package i can not identify pieces of property like i could in the free trial this was a total waste of my hard earned money
Amazing app definitely a game changer!! 5/5
I love this app has so many helpful features helped me to find my downed elk 2 years ago by marking my blood trail with waypoints and then doing a grid search from there. Really can't say enough great things about this app. I no longer use a separate GPS.
