Hamfe6 - Best Phone mapping app in existence
Now I will add to my review, that after posting this initial review I received an email response instructing me how to perform a task I didn’t know was possible. And I noticed a newsletter email detailing the same information. It is obvious the OnX company is devoted to doing their best work. Thanks OnX, please never go away.
This app eliminates the necessity of a handheld unit for a lot of people. And the ability to share everything is tremendous. I can send tracks & waypoints to a guide who has never been to my ranch before and trust they’ll find their way. The OnX company constantly looks for ways to improve and innovate. I thank y’all very much for this. This app has allowed me to do my job more efficiently and to explain things to existing and new landowners more thoroughly. Thank you. My only request at this point is to have a desktop version. But I understand that’s not really what this app was built for. Anyhow thanks for the great product. Please keep up the good work. Seriously recommend for anyone wanting to setup a hunting ranch, or use for their own hunting or adventures.
VERY IMPORTANT! Some people believe Google Earth is better. I have used Google Earth for 14 years. I still am forced to use it for some of my work. However Hands down OnX has changed the game. GOOGLE EARTH’s app never works half as good and doesn’t have near as good location capability.
Crypnotique - Best Hunt Mapping App
The features available on OnX are better than any other hunting and mapping app I have used in the past. Excellent array of mapping layers to select from, even including NOAA nautical charts, logging and burn data and federal land. Very good property ownership data, though I wonder how often it is updated, as I have noticed some parcels that are currently labeled incorrectly just based on knowing the current owner. The vast selection of possible waypoint markers, the ability to track your movement and save the path, and the ability to share those data points with other users of the app is great. They recently updated the satellite imagery to more recent imagery, which has been helpful in many cases, but therein lies my only complaint I can think of at this time. I would like the ability to choose between a small number of satellite imagery layers from different dates to display the map in. I often use OnX to e-scout for waterfowl hunting and the satellite imagery from before the update was taken in the winter, allowing me to better see creeks and marshes which flow under tree canopies. The latest imagery makes it harder to see into those possible duck holes. The ability to switch between winter and summer imagery would be very beneficial for that purpose and many other hunting and angling pursuits. Overall, love the app and all of the available features.
lee2476 - Great product, great customer support
I have been using the onXmaps program on my iPhone for over a year here in Montana. It has become an indispensable tool for me. As in many states, Montana can have some very confusing land ownership patterns. There are places where the fences and mix of private and public land are so confusing that I refused to hunt them. Now I can go there with confidence. I had an issue recently with my saved for offline use maps. It was probably my fault. Still, I couldn't resolve it so I contacted onXmaps support. Right away I got an email with step by step instructions for resolving the issue which worked. So, great product, great customer support. I have told everyone that I know about this great product. If you hike, fish, hunt, backpack, you should buy this.
Update: I have been an enthusiastic user of the hunt app for years now. The app just keeps getting better and my uses for it continue to expand. I and my hunting partners have used the app to scout new areas among many other uses. This last season, we hunted a private ranch that had been broken into units on which the public could hunt in limited numbers. Before we hunted there, we put the boundaries of the partitioned ranch on our offline maps. We hunted that place with confidence. This is a great product and a great company.
Hunt&FishVA - Best hunt map app! Easy to use!
I’ve used a couple other apps in the recent past that were recommended by friends, but none of them were really user friendly or had all of the options that I was looking for. Then I found OnX. SO much easier to use than the other apps. It’s now my go-to-app when I’m at home looking at my maps or in the field marking game sign and scouting new areas for stands or blinds. I’m sold for life; OnX is perfect for my hunting map needs. Highly recommended!
**Update after 4 months of use**
The onX app continues to be one of the most useful hunting tools in my arsenal! I have completed mapping our 1200 acres of private hunting land using onX, including mapping all of the trails and marking locations of more than 110 tree stands. Throughout the process, I have learned more about the land that we hunt than I ever could’ve imagined. Thanks to onX, learning the (complete) lay of the land was so much easier than I thought it would be. I’ll definitely have the app open every time I go in the woods! Being able to share way points with friends has been super helpful. If you’re considering trying out onX, do it with confidence! The app is great!!
dccycleworks - Most useful app I have
I was hesitant to try this app after some other ones came up very short, but after a few friends recommended it I tried the free trial. I was hooked the first time I used it! For once there is an app that actually does what it advertises. Just today it was well worth the yearly subscription, I had hiked about 7 miles into the woods along a game trail and it was getting very hot and I was very tired, I decided to open OnX to see how much further I had to go if I stayed on the trail to intersect the road, when I opened the app I saw that I had just started paralleling the road but the intersection was another two miles away, but as the crow flies I was only a half mile from the road, so I just hiked the half mile and was back on the road I had parked on saving me probably a couple hours. Also customer support is great! I was having an issue with the app when off grid sometimes, I emailed them about it and they responded quickly stating they were aware of the issue and it had already been fixed in the update that got released that same day, I updated the app and it has been flawless ever since! Best app ever
Mr. Frantz - Solid Conservationist App
The versatility of this App is second to none in regards to the realm of conservationists.
Being able to see all public, private, leases, wilderness areas, weather reports, etc. all from one app AND being able to ping places you’ve hunted so you can remember them for the next time is just too handy. That paired with the unbelievably reasonable subscriptions there truly isn’t anything to complain about, a service like this I was expecting to pay $$$/ month.
The customer service is beyond exceptional. I originally got signed up in Texas and use only the Texas OnX maps, I am now moving to Wyoming and when reaching out to support to see if I could get my states changed over there was no hassle. No, “well we can’t really do that” no, “well you have to pay a fee” no nonsense. I asked if that was something they could do and within 5 minutes they emailed me back politely letting me know that my request had been completed. Every conservationist in my family uses this, I would and do recommend this app to every conservationist I come across.
Thanks for the awesome service OnX!
Arizelkhunter - Definitely a Fan
I have been using the app now for approx. 3 years now. I have had a number of Garmin GPS units which helped to keep me on track in unfamiliar territory. None provided the amount of info that OnXmaps delivers and I was always having to work through bugs with them. I found myself using OnXmaps more and more and eventually only carried the GPS in the holder on my Ranger. Last year I found myself in a dispute on some land that was listed as US government trust land but was apparently being leased to an unnamed Native American tribe. The told me I couldn’t hunt on the land and called law is enforcement. Law Enforcement upheld my position and said that they also use OnXmaps.
The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that it only works in the vertical position on my IPad and doesn’t rotate. Yes, I admit that all of the landowner info isn’t up to the minute accurate, but last time I checked I’m not right 100% of the time either. If there is a piece of property I want to hunt on that’s private, I don’t take it for granted that it’s okay to hunt on, I try to contact them. If I can’t contact the landowner, I hunt somewhere else. Simple enough.
Highly recommend. Good luck in your adventures.
Nubbbbb - Best app I have ever used
This is my first review. Ever. I have been using OnX Hunt for a few years now. I cannot stop recommending this app to everyone I talk hunting with. I mark everything. Trails, tracks, rubs, scrapes, roosts, kills, sightings, treestands, blinds, trail cameras.... everything. At first I used it to keep inventory of my gear and where it was left. Now I share a few hunting spots and hunt some friends ground as well. They are now able to see where the trail cameras, stands and blinds are and can hang theirs accordingly. If I need or want them to check a cam? No problem. I can show them exactly where it is. From satellite and topo maps I am able to scout a lot from the air before I ever step foot on the property. And having landowner info is AWESOME when bow season is over and we change gears and start predator hunting. I measure, figure areas, scout, drop waypoints for everything. Best. App. Period. I will continue to pay for this app and will continue to recommend it to anyone that truly takes their hunting seriously. Thank you for creating an app that is, in my opinion, one of the best tools a hunter can have in his pocket.
AZ Nikko - The BEST Outdoor Map and UI Experience!
Almost a year ago I had the opportunity to try OnX at a reduced rate annual subscription and figured that as an avid outdoor enthusiast I could not go wrong.
Since then, I have made OnX my premier map interface solution for ANYTHING outdoors. Whether I am hiking or driving, OnX allows me to chart the path, or if I am feeling bold, explore new territory which complete confidence of where I am and who owns the property I am on. Setting up waypoints and tracking my travel could not be easier or more customizable than what OnX offers. I am able to share my information with others to allow for geolocate tools or cross-reference to finer detail in Google Earth.
What makes OnX really shine is the ability to download areas directly to your phone for non-service use. All smartphones have built-in GPS that allows for satellite (not daw tower) usage to continue tracking your location. This is critical when you are in areas where service is unavailable. In addition to this are overlays unique to your area based on a plethora of data sources. This could be fire history, drought history, etc.. The layers are nearly endless, but each add a unique value that can be toggled on or off.
There are dozens of incredible features and functionality that surely one person couldn’t even take full advantage of in one year. I am still learning more and more about the app through their Live Q&A sessions. You do not want to pass on this one!
86435692 - Not good offline and having to constantly re-download
Same story different version of the app. The offline maps take forever to download, they don’t download at the same quality. I have major issues when I can scout from my phone or computer but download the map section (yes at the highest quality) and all I see in the field I blurry objects. It takes a lot of time and energy to download large portions of maps for offline storage and half the updates ONX comes out with deletes the saved maps you have stored. You have to turn on every layer to actually download that data which i guess isn’t the end of the world and maybe some guys don’t download all data to save room on their device? Not sure just make a button to click to download all available layers so you know your covered. I have always liked and used ONX but I could be so much better. They do a lot for land access and certainly have made a good name for themselves. Hopefully someone like basemap can put out a functional offline mapping version so those of us who utilize the offline version especially across multiple states and/ large portions of states for different species can easily download and access the data later.
JGutch - Property Ownership Updates Slow
Based on my direct experience using the app as well as providing correct land owner information to OnX, they are very slow to update land ownership changes. I would venture to say that the land ownership is one of the most if not the most important map layer that hunters want to see. For the price that users pay for this subscription, this is the information that needs to be as current as possible, especially when the app is showing a property as open to the public when it is actually privately owned.
I own property that was shown on the app as open to the public when I purchased it nearly a year ago. The app showed the property that was previously owned by a University Foundation as open to the public even though the foundation had it posted as private. I alerted OnX to this error and provided them all of the information they requested but the error still remains today. This land was never open to the public.
If this is the speed at which the company handles a critical map error, as a user I would not pay the extra for “elite” membership. Just my personal opinion as a hunter and subscriber.
~King55~ - Amazing hunting app
Best hunting map by far. I really love the app the only problem I have is when saving maps offline the icons stay big and you can not see pass them. This is the only reason why I gave 4 stars I will change my rating when fixed.
Update. After messing around with the layers on the map I figured out the problem. The problem is one of the layers as soon as you take it off it will make the problem go away. So you have to delete the layer with the trail and recreations. Then re add them. Solved the problem and hasn’t happened anymore. I must admit customer service is amazing and fast but they couldn’t figure out the problem. But A+ customer service. They did offer some solutions but none of them worked but greatly appreciated.
Overall this is the hunting map to get. It’s great for trying to figure out where property line start so you won’t trespass. I would highly recommend to any hunter. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ App
modizzledaddy - Great app, lacking in a few places
I love this app so far, but one gripe.
The downloadable maps should be more customizable, or at least give me more options. I’m locked into low/medium/high res maps for offline use. The high and medium res maps have amazing detail, too much for my uses, and only lets me download a certain size (5 or 10 mile wide) plot at a time. If I wanted to download a 100 mile square I would have to download 10 different maps. Not the hardest thing in the world to do, but tedious when compared to other offline gps app like Gaia(onxhunt and Gaia are very different, Gaia/off-roading navigation and onxhunt I use for hunting).
The low res covers practically all of Colorado, and is close to detailed enough, but not quite. If they could make an offline map download option that was in between the low and medium res options, this app would be everything I could hope for. I could download 4-8 maps and cover the entire state, and never have to worry about not having service when I want to check my location.
Copper614 - Great app for hunters and cops
Honestly the app is great. It takes a little time to figure out some things, like adding layers so that the user can view private land ownership. I really feel that this should be a default layer that you shouldn’t have to hunt for and add since it’s one of the most important features for determining whether customers purchase it or not. Once you figure out how to add it though, things are great. I had to contact customer service twice but fortunately those guys are on top of their game and helped me very quickly: once to figure out how to add the private land layer and once because I was just a dummy and tried to log in with the wrong email address. Overall, I’m really satisfied with the app. It’s useful for more than just hunting season too. I work in law enforcement and frequently have to contact land owners. This app makes traveling to or calling the county appraisal district obsolete. It’s really been a handy tool.
dogcoyhunter - Slow with blank spots
So far I do like the app. I’m only in the trail period, but so far it’s been a little slow to respond and their are a lot of times their has been blank spots, in other words white spot blocks all over my map when I move in or out. Sometimes they go away after a very long time or they stay and I don’t know what is behind them. The layers have been ok, sometimes a little hard to follow. I wish the whole app would rotate, not just the map. I’m more the likely to get the app. But before I do I will be taking it out and doing some of my testing. But the biggest thing I’m worried about is the slow loading and big areas of white spots. I’m using the app on my iPad.
Update: the white spots have improved a lot. Still a little slow in loading. Now it’s the speed it’s way off or it freezes. It mostly shows the speed faster then I’m going or it’s why below what I’m going. I still would like to see the whole app rotate. I like my iPad in landscape. It’s much easier for me to see it.
Jay Will 789 - Why I cancelled
I was initially excited when I purchased OnX two years ago and found the app helpful. However I will be canceling my membership and going with another service after many failed attempts to have issues corrected. I own a large parcel of land that is used primarily for hunting and fishing and often invite friends and family to hunt. I noticed the property lines on my land had switched to outdated lines from years ago. Also the land owner information was incorrect and displayed the previous owners information. I attempted to contact OnX and tried to tag the land with the updated ownership many times over the last year. It is very frustrating that after a year I have not got any response from OnX. I’m not paying for an outdated app and non existent customer service. I have found other apps that have the correct boundary lines and land owner information so I will be taking my business elsewhere. I will also be canceling the five other accounts I pay for that family and friends use. I am disappointed and frustrated that I have to start over with another app but I can’t justify paying for a service that isn’t correct.
Brinton Cary - Essential Hunting Tool
I've used the one state app as a Premium user for my home state of Oregon for a few years. Recently, I upgraded to the Elite package and have used the Offline feature extensively on several out of state hunts this year.
Backcountry is one thing but I may be searching out access near private lands close to town where suddenly I lose service and have found I am saving these maps no matter where I hunt. It could be me, but the opacity/transparency is darkened many times making it difficult to see my layers. That's my only issue.
I suggest watching podcasts featuring the OnX guys to glean more info on getting the most from the app.
After seeing one such episode, I learned about the layers for wildfires and timber harvests where you can see what year and whether it was a thinning or clearcut. This is vital info for hunters in the logging country of the PNW.
Overall, this app has become an essential tool for all of my hunts.
cgiven94 - Life saver
If you hunt public land, big country, national forest, or if you just want to look and mark things on your own property this app os perfect! I downloaded a map of national forest and me and a buddy took it to the mountains (Miles and miles away from service) and we hiked 10 miles after we left the truck and came to a rock cliff. On the way back down we wanted to avoid the rock cliff in the dark so we swung right and accidentally went 2 draws over and started down the wrong hollow. Pulled out my phone (still no service) and looked at my downloaded map and walked to the truck which i had marked. Not only that but i was able to mark specific sign and leave notes on the map to remind me whats going on for next season to have a game plan. Highly recommend this app to everyone! Only downfall is i wish you could pay for more than 1 state, but not pay for 50 states when you might only need 1-4 states.
GlobalDriving - Great Hunting App!
I have used this app for the past two years on multiple hunts, in multiple states. Not only has it been great for learning boundaries and a good overall picture of my my various hunting areas, it’s also great for the areas that I’ve hunted for years. OnXMaps is useful for everything from planning my hunts to using it in the field. The tracking feature has worked great, pin pointing waypoints and marking my location have been super valuable. Even the off-grid maps without internet work great. Before this app there were questions as to where property boundaries were. This has made that much more clear and makes hunting new areas more comfortable.
They are constantly adding new features and improving on existing ones. The guys in customer service have always responded quickly with helpful information.
Great app! Keep up the good work!
216Lexilulu - Needs work still
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.
Cmt179 - Great app.
Love the app for knowing where you are at and staying on the right property or public land. I sold my Garmin and bought a charge pack for my phone and haven't regretted it. Just a few ideas for developers if they read this. 1st please at a "navigation to" function. It's useable to navigate as is but it would be awesome to navigate to your truck for example and it would keep track of how far and what direction it was. And secondly, would be the ability to just measure a distance from your current location instead of having to mark two location. Also the ability to change units of measure (to yards for example). There have been a few times I've ranged an animal near an unmarked boundary and having to do the math to figure out what side of the boundary it is on is tough in the moment. Both of those are improvements and don't detract from the fundamental purpose. A few small improvements would make it 5 star.
RJKBigSky - Best land map on the market!
onXmaps is hands down the best map on the market! I have used it for much more than hunting and have been thrilled with the experience. The App is completely customizable with numerous layers, to fit whatever needs you may haveI have. I have vast experience in land navigation in the outdoors as a professional on many fronts; athlete, fire fighter, hunter, and overall recreation enthusiast. This App has given me confidence and security when venturing out into the great outdoors! I highly recommend this App to anyone that may need a great land navigation/ land ownership map. My moto use to be, “A paper map and a good compass is all you need”. Now my map and compass stay in my pack, as onXmaps has provided me with an all-in-one tool to get the job done.
P.S. Also, a great company with great people!
Thanks onXmaps! Can’t wait to see what you roll out next in the outdoor industry.
Dgayle60 - OnX Hunt is great!
I don’t like to waste money so i downloaded the trial version of the app on my Colorado Elk Hunt last week. It is fantastic! I used it on my iPhone and my iPad. It is very user friendly and with multiple map modes, Topo, Sat and Hydrid (Topo/Sat combo) it is great for pre-scouting potential target areas, up close and personal, with high resolution photos. The private land function is spot on. I stood on a private fence line high in the mountains with the locator dot on the map exactly where it was supposed to be. The GPS function is very accurate and fast. I left my old GPS in the truck. I bought the Elite package after 2 days!! Customer Service was quick to respond by email when I couldn’t figure out a layering issue, my technically challenged issue, not theirs.
P.S. One word of warning, carry an external battery pack for your device because you will be using this app. A LOT!
Sasquatch2016 - Let you're glass so the walking
I'm old school, ok not that old, but I believe in letting your glass do the walking for you. OnXmaps has done the incredible by incorporating every desirable aspect of mapping into you're portable device. The ability to easily find public lands and determine where they begin and end is a invaluable tool at home. You can check out the terrain features in detail along with the real time topographic cursor you can see where elevation changes are and more importantly see what you're getting into. Downloading maps on you're device to navigate offline while keeping your location by god is awesome and you can still zoom in and out. The program is incredible and will save you fuel, time and multiply your quality of time spent in the field. It's a must for every outdoors enthusiast, hiker and hunter. Get it now!
JohnnyDezert - Waypoints not accurate
I subscribed to onX hunt for the last three years. In this time, the app has been a rollercoaster, sometimes good and sometimes not very reliable. Several times I have had to close and reopen the app because it freezes. Last year, they discontinued the “landscape” view that I used on my iPad, and upon contacting them, they assured me that it would be restored at a later date, but never was. Most recently, the last straw was on my archery elk hunt. I loaded offline maps before I left home, when I opened the app, it would show I was about 60 miles from where I actually was. I put an arrow in an elk, and immediately marked my position where I stood, and where I found first blood. I started tracking blood spots, and then went to backtrack to find my arrow and where first blood was, only to find that my waypoint was not accurate, and I never did locate the first blood spot. There are better gps apps available, do you’re research before subscribing, I will not be paying for this service anymore.
Lexilove149 - Outstanding
My dad uses this app for hunting and recommended it to me for hot spring hunting. Most of the locations I go to are in extremely rural areas that require traveling for miles on dirt roads with no cell phone service. A lot like hunting, lol. So the ability to select an area and download a surprisingly high resolution offline map is worth the annual cost of this app alone. But I can then use the various map layers to show me trails, public vs. private land, recreation sites, and so much more. You can use the tracker to drop bread crumbs to see exactly what route you have come from, and I use the line distance tool to determine how far I’d need to hike to a hot spring, how far a hot spring is from the road, etc. So this app is useful for far more than hunting, and has really upped my hot spring game. I am stoked to finally track down some hidden gems.
Roark08 - Idaho Legislature made this app a requirement
It's a great app, but the Idaho legislature, having been heavily influenced by our Of state billionaires, made it so we have to know where private property is in the back country versus private owners having to post their land. Now hunters pay $30 annually just to be sure they make legal kills on public property. To me, if you can afford hundreds of thousands of acres, you either should pay to post your property or you simply own too much land to restrict hunting on it (parcel it up and post), this state's history of public access is too important for this corrupt special interest BS.
Having that been said, this is a good app, now it's a must have to stay legal as a sportsman in Idaho. That's too bad, I feel sad for the older sportsman who are not in possession of advanced technology. Vote them out.
Daddycausingchaos - Indispensable
I’m a licensed falconer in the state of Iowa. We have very little public land locally compared to most of the western states. Getting a wide range of permissions with varied habitat is key to successful hunting from year to year. Finding who owns particular properties and gaining permission to hunt is, without a doubt, the first step to success.
OnX is the quickest, most dependable method I’ve found for tracking elusive property owners. In the first month after downloading the onX app I went from approximately 300 acres of permissions to well over 1000 acres. A year later I have over 2000 acres of permissions within a 50 mile radius of home. That alone is worth the price but when you consider the map tools, such as waypoints and area calculator... I couldn’t go back to a time without it. The app has functioned without a single glitch. Thanks, onX!
Alaska Huntmaster - Game-Changer
When I started using a smartphone, I always said it’ll be great if someday my GPS could be a part of it... many apps have come along, but all have come up short Until onXhunt! I downloaded the app in September 2018… In October we took a great elk and mule deer on a traveling hunt to unknown units in Utah. OnXhunt was spot on. It is essential in navigating the maze of public and private lands and the off grid feature is most useful. It’s saved us time money and helped put us on animals. At home in Alaska, as my son has said, it is a “Game-Changer”... it is opening up many new spots in areas we have hunted our whole lives… Being able to pre-plan and in field navigate has made for many successful hunts. We have also used it to navigate in cities we have traveled to. Keep up the great work onX team.
locky33j - Great hunting application and great company
I have been using onX maps for the past few years and absolutely love it. It has all but eliminated the need for carrying multiple units and maps in the field. I will say just make sure you download maps of the area you intend to scout or hunt prior to heading into the field so that you can use the “offline” map feature. The app is super easy to use, Is very accurate, provides a lot of information and details for the areas that I hunt, hike, camp or backpack. I will say that onX has always been easy to work with and have been very responsive to questions or helping with any issue that I have had. They seem to be truly invested in their products while trying to provide the best customer service they can. Thanks.
BSumners - This app really is that good.
Yes the price doesn’t come cheap, I am a Premium subscriber, but this absolutely expanded my hunting terrain. The amount of information made available to your fingertips is without exaggeration, a game changer. That’s not to say that there are not areas where improvement can’t be made, there are. But, I took it upon my self to make a recommendation on user interface, and I was congratulated that it was a good tip and may just be incorporated on the update (getting the save and undo buttons moved away from the place marker spot for the Line Distance tool). Also be a little cautious on the listing of public roads; sometimes this app does want to tell you it’s a public lane, but in reality, it is not. Beyond, I probably spend more time using this app than I should be.
russwhite98 - Dependable Hunting-GPS App!
I’ve used onX for a couple of years now on my Garmin, but this past year was the first I used it in my phone. I was impressed with the ease of use and the app's ability to get and show my location while offline. The off grid feature is key in this type of application, of course. It works well and the off grid maps are not huge in file size so they don't take up too much space on your device. I have yet to have the app crash or lock up on me either which makes it very dependable. As a bonus, onX is working with groups like Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to add helpful layers in the map using great data that RMEF and biologists have gathered. Overall, I enjoy using this app and recommend it to other hunters out there.
Jrod2423 - Was an amazing tool, keyword was!
I've been using this app to find landowner and property lines and it's been amazing until this most recent update that reworked the offline maps and now it is horrible. Offline maps used to be smaller and more manageable on a phone now you might get 1 whole map on your phone which is absolutely horrible compared to the dozen I had saved before and still had room for more. I don't understand why they have tried to fix something that wasn't broken, the new layout seems nice but the offline maps are ruined and that is what I rely on since I don't always have phone service, I may need to look at another mapping app.
Update: Thanks but they didn't help either, also if you used the old USA topos in the past that is not an option anymore, now it's just the topo lines over a white page and that's it, you don't get the land cover coloring that should be on there. And again nothing has changed with the new updates
Dr. McBride - So out dated
These maps or so completely out dated it's not even funny. None of the owners of properties are correct the property boundaries are 25 feet off of actual boundaries they do not have the correct boundaries for hunting zones they're off about 190 yards and I know that's because I got a huge fine from fishing game because I was 90 yards in a different zone this is the worst app for hunting it's going to get you tickets and thrown in jail then it's gonna do any good for you and on top of that they don't even allow you to go past the seven day free trial without charging $30 to your iTunes account shutting everything down because you're is no credit card attached to that iTunes account to pay the $30 I did not want to pay them in the first place. I even went in and made sure that auto renew was shut off and when I went back it was turned back on by Apple themselves just so they can shut my account down from being able to update any of my other apps.
KPED0307 - New Update....BAD!
I wouldn’t write a review if it wasn’t for the fact on how disappointed I am with the new updates for the phone app and desktop. Before the recent updates I loved the app and was telling other friends and family that hunt public land here in Texas about it.
I really don’t understand why they chose this new satellite image where it looks like it’s not clear at all (grayish) until your dang near zoom all the way in before it clears up. They also took away the feature where the last zoom ( on older versions) you can see the change of terrain i.e. pines trees vs oaks trees. Here in Texas that feature is really crucial because knowing where specific areas that have oaks eliminates excess hours of useless scouting in the pine areas or areas of no interest.
I really hope I’m not the only one dealing with this and that it becomes a bad enough issue they go back to how it was. It’s still a good app as a whole but those missing features are really irritating.
bybyromy - Best customer service
I had an issue with my 3D map update and left an email for customer service. I expected because of Covid it would take a week or two before I heard anything back. LITERALLY the next morning I received an email with some trouble shooting. All it needed was an update and for me to be hooked into my WiFi and bam I had 3D maps. OnX customer service in my opinion is the best. I have never received such a quick response like I did during this weird year. Thank you to the technician who reached out. I’ve recommended this app to family and friends and your will continue to do so. All your tips the past 2 years have paid off, I’m no longer a bow hiker because I know the terrain to look for. Thanks again!
Joseph DiP - Love this app!!
I’d be lost without it...LITERALLY!! I went out for an archery hunt after work one night. I wasn’t going to go far, but I turned the tracker on anyway. Luckily I did. I stayed out till legal shooting light and that led to a hike out well after sun down. Everything was going fine while I was on the trail, but then I hit an opening and it wasn’t clear we’re the trail went from there. I circled the meadow a couple of times without being able to find an opening for the trail. Starting to panic, I remembered onX Maps and the track I started at the beginning of my hunt. I became calm again. The path showing my hike was so accurate, that I found the trailhead in seconds. I back to my truck in no time. I will never go into the wood without onX!
haulzballz - Hunter friendly
I love Onx whether in app or the chip in my gps. I use both because I have a lot of different hunting areas with zero chance of cell service. I love the ability to download maps for offline use. Ran into a problem where my directional beacon would point opposite of where I was facing making the map backwards. I messaged Onx through the app when I got back to cell range. They responded immediately and tried to solve the problem right away. Not sure what was done to fix it but I have not had a problem since. Everything that is loaded with tech will have issues. Onx is no exception but their customer service is top notch and they handled my problem immediately. I will always renew my subscription
fieldandstressrelief - More hunting opportunities
I have lived in my area all my life and have driven by so many huntable locations in the past because I had no idea it was public lands. This has increased my areas I am able to hunt 10 fold. Awesome app, great features, and the layer options are great.
We have spotty coverage in many areas and the offline map coverage is a great asset.
So far I am using the app from the time I leave home until I return.
I haven’t bagged an elk, deer, or antelope yet with my bow since I’ve had the app but I have chased all three in locations I usually would have checked them out and headed down the road.
Thanks for a good useful product! Can’t wait to use it for trapping and trap locate waypoints, I’m sure I won’t be disappointed...
Eazytodo - Great product and product support
While I have only used this product for less than a year, it has fulfilled all I was looking for. Being able to download maps and map layers to my iPhone enabling use in areas where cell service is not available has allowed me to use this while hunting in many different backcountry areas. Plus, whenever I have had questions, the product support has always been there. Recently, while in an area where I did not have subscription coverage, I called product support fully intending to buy a several day temporary subscription. However, I was allowed use in the area for several days without charge! Now THAT is what earns customer loyalty and praise!
aqua_man - Favorite Hunting, Hiking and Camping App
I’ve been using the app for a few years and have really enjoyed it in all aspects of my outdoor life. It started out great, but continually evolves to be even better. It’s obvious that the guys and gals working on it also use it.
I recently had a glitch and requested customer service. In very short order I had an email with a solution waiting for me. There was additional follow up to ensure my problem had been resolved. I couldn’t ask for anything better.
Thanks for creating my favorite hunting tool. If you guys get bored, figure out how to give the Garmin Rinos a run for their money. I would love to be able to keep track of my hunting party via satellite on your app instead of dragging my Rino around too.
InfantryGrunt11 - Great App
Use this app to remember where I placed all of my trail cameras, over a dozen of them scattered thru my property. I have also used it to contact neighboring land owners after I shot a deer last opening day and needed to get their permission to enter their private property before going on their land. I’ve also used it to scout infill routes and exfil routes to and from my hunting areas, marking various Stand locations, determining distances, land navigation while I have no service due to downloading the map to my phone so I can use it while off the grid, and I’ve used it to determine whether or not I want to put an offer on more acreage and who to contact to let them know I was interested if the land ever comes up for sale. Great app
Amateur newbie - Awesome one stop shop app
This app is great. I have downloaded several before it and out of 15 or so this is the only one that is actually practical to pull out in a regular basis while scouting hunting land. Not only that you can save locations, add logs to those saved location, see how the weather and wind will affect your hunt there and so much more. You can then add pictures for references and measure distance and land area. It will track your path and the gps is spot on within 5 yards at most. Also doesn’t drain your battery. Very important. You can even save locations to view offline and share with others that you might want to share with.
Much more good things it does. Seriously must try this app.
MM3Sam - Best GPS app on the market!
I use this app almost daily and I am constantly using it on any outdoor trip. It’s very informative and can show you a lot more than just a regular topo map. You can use it to track your hike/hunt. You’re able to download maps of the areas you’re going to be in and use them fully even if your phone is in airplane mode. I also like how you can see public and private lands and who owns the public land. This comes in handy when you’re trying to find new places to explore. The only thing I don’t like about the app is the private land owner feature isn’t updated regularly. Needs to be updated at least every 3 months in order to get an accurate ownership.
Dhdjdkvknrjdnnfndk - Some many issues this hunting season.
OnX has been an important part of my hunting prep, planning and hunting for the past 3 seasons. This year I had scouted all summer with it with no issues until the week before season. I get into the backcountry and all my saved maps didn’t work. The next weekend they fixed the issue so all the maps now showed again but now everyone in my elk camp with an iPhone couldn’t see topo just the imagery .... this has been the case for the last 10 days. Almost worthless when trying to navigate without lines all week and extremely frustrating when you put some much effort preparing for season to be left with an app that won’t work. I am confused on how I have had no issues the past two seasons but the season even the basics for navigation would not work. :(
LoneRider - I would never want to be without it.
There’s not much I can say beyond what is already been written but my personal experience with this app has been awesome. Just a few weeks ago we went back into the woods to get ready for the coming season. The area had been logged recently and nothing looked like it did before. I would never have found my hunting blind and a very nice feeder I had set up if I didn’t have it marked. As it was, I walked right to it. No reason to ever worry about getting lost in the woods. The app works just as good in airplane mode as it does with the Wi-Fi signal. The ability to save and use Maps when you’re off-line is incredible and indispensable for many of us hunt.
Gndwntheroad - Below average
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!
LagunaAgent - Best wilderness GPS app I’ve found
This is an app developed by hunters for hunters. Its a must have so you know where the public and private boundaries are. Very accurate. Lots of awesome layers help you navigate burns, find access to public land, trails, terrain etc. Works on both your smart phone and desktop so you can plan your hunt on the big screen, add waypoints with notes etc before you hit the trails. Before I came across this app I was about to spend $600 on a Garmin GPS and who knows how much on topo maps for each area of interest. For under $100 per year I’ve got the entire USA with updates on my phone. I don’t get out hunting as much as I would like to living in CA but when I do, I know onX will be ready for me.
TakenNicknameDeletedMyReview - Turns the world into your back 40
I got into hunting in my 30's, with virtually no guidance, and this app is one of the reasons why that was even possible. I use it to identify spots in preseason scouting, places off the beaten path when I need to get away from the horde, and to track where I am when I've been hiking in the dark for two hours while knowing full well that if I didn't have this with me I'd be shivering against a tree until sunrise. This thing will cut years off your learning curve if you're just starting out, and no matter what your experience level it gives you an understanding of any landscape that was only available to locals in the past. It's worth ten times what they're charging.
TRS1356 - Most important tool for hunting
For me, On X is one of the top 3 most important items I use when I’m hunting, yet it is one of the least expensive parts of my hunt. I’ve used this app for waterfowl, pheasant, turkey and big game hunting over the past few years. Since most of the areas I hunt are out of cell range, saving the maps for offline use is a huge bonus! I’ve found new spots to hunt, tracked my hikes, and laid down waypoints to know where I’ve seen wallows, and set my duck blinds. It’s a big relief to know for a fact that you are legally hunting on public land when the land is checker boarded. This app is extremely easy to use, and their customer service department has been very helpful. Thank you!

TimmyLoch - Australian user
App is great, maps are up to date but would be better if the town and road names in Australia were included. Worth a try at minimum.
DOMA!! - Australian User
This app is amazing. Don’t need a gps if you download maps prior to heading out.
Work in Australia but doesn’t have any road names or town names etc.
Can’t wait for this to cover Australia fully.
Fenkwondo - Australian access
Seriously need this set up for Australians! Very good idea
..Hally.. - Great but would be better if you could navigate/track a route
Damn good it’s replaced my Garmin. Love being able to use photo real maps off line. And planning on the pc and syncing to my phone is great.
Would be be better if you could navigate to s waypoint or follow s route, but you sort of do it manually following a track anyway.

Cleanlinefishingtofino - Would be 5 Stars if worked in Canada
Works great for the 1 offline ore-downloaded map. But if you want to save anymore you have to upgrade but no Canadian option
gcauchon - A few things missing in Canada
I’ve been using OnX for a few years now. Many complains about the app not having “Canadian maps”; which is not completely true. Every GPS features are fully functional; this is the way I’ve been using it since day 1. But a few things are missing north of the border (in more that half of North America you know) :
1. Cities and roads is a must. It would be so much easier to find our way when eScouting a new area. Scanning satellite imagery is painfully and requires using another map tool on the side to locate an area on the satellite maps… The hybrid view is useless until roads are available!
2. TOPO maps! This is to me even more important than the new “trendy” 3D imagery available in other outdoors GPS apps.
3. Share areas/waypoints/tracks with my hunting partners one item at the time is painful and conter-intuitive. Even for someone with an IT background like me.
4. Fix the unit setting! The weather unit are inconsistently display throughout the app even when the setting is set to Metric.
Until then, I’ll keep using the app all year long, but can score more than 3 stars…
howe1975 - No Canada
Juster935 - We The North
Just a heads up to On X...Canada is part of North America. App is useless until you add Canadian maps.
41Z41 - USA ONLY not North America
App should say “USA Only” the term North America is misleading marketing. There is awesome hunting in Canada but not enough market to map it. Thanks guys.
Estoprincess - What about Canada eh?
Was so excited when I saw this App advertisement in North America White Tail magazine. I guess North America doesn't include Canada!
h&j ridiculous - No Canada option!!
How long do Canadians have to wait for this “North American app” to be fully functional in Canada? Ridiculous
rthfi - Canada eh!
This app does not show you any information pertaining to public or private land in Canada. I have been using it on private land to mark trails tracks and scrapes and it seems to work great.
David gagne - Doesn’t work in Canada
Can’t choose a Canadian province. Should tell it before downloading and registering !
cafenflyfish - Use it in Canada
Wish it had the offline maps for Canada. Works fine for online hunting areas though and I am using it just fine with it’s many features.
epicgames92 - OnX
Needs to be made available in Canada
MechEng94 - No Canada
Wish it had the public and private land for Canada.
trabel sales - Doesn’t include Canada at all. So it’s no good.
Too bad it doesn’t include canada maps. Strongly suggest they include it so we can download it.
annoym17 - Needs a Canadian Version
It’s to bad that all we have for a Canadian hunter app is iHunter. Wish this app would focus some attention to Canadians.
Macdaddyyyyyyyyy - No Canadian support
Looks like one hell of a great app. To bad there’s no Canadian support as usual.
mbooth-19 - Not for Canadians
Apparently you have to be American to be considered part of “North America” because this app doesn’t support Canadian hunters or land maps. Pretty much useless in the great white north.
DeerDragger - Doesn’t support Canadian hunters
Title says it all.
sssscoob - Not for Canadians
Does not work in Canada! Wish it did.
sewchbaby - No Canada eh?
I used it in Montana and loved it only to find out it doesn’t work in Canada
RJPenuta - Only works in USA
So it’s in the Canada App Store but does not work outside the US. Looks like a great app but not for Canadians.
gobblercobbler - No Canada ?
Was pretty disappointed to find out this app isn’t available in Canada, what’s up with that ?
burnett251 - OnX
No Canada? Have to update that... the app looks great lots of features! Would love to be able to use this app up here in the great white north!
Sledheadfred - CANADA
Lots of us Canadians waiting for this app eh
pj1898 - Needs Canada
I hunt out of Canada so it doesn’t help much until Canada is covered under North America
mr.kipps - Canada?
The great white north isn’t part of North America?
Jeremiah Newfield - Not worth it
Not worth anything
Madgmr - Sucks
If your in Canada don’t waste your time with this app
RidgeRunner 1 - Great app
Used it lots. It’s getting better and easier to use even for the computer illiterate like me. New features were hard to figure out. One email to support services and it showed me the tip. Fantastic features
nickname!!5 - Canada?
This would be so cool in Canada looks like it would be handy
JayBlox - Canada is not part of North America?
App is 100% useless for Canadians. Someone needs to make something like this for Canada...
Thunderpork - What about Canada?...
Unfortunately I can’t review this app accurately because I can’t use it. It was marketed as covering “North America”... last time I checked, Canada was in North America. Sigh. Hopefully they move up at some point. It looks awesome.
canuk 13 - No maps in Canada?
About to buy the app and so we’re 3 of my other hunting buddies but couldn’t find anything saying there is Canadian maps? Please make this for Canadian moose and white tail hunters
jakel888877 - Canada?
Hurry up and add maps for Canada before another company does!
skindaddy_mack - Canadian maps
What’s the hold up? Where’s the Canadian maps?
CaleMeesters - Really wish this worked in Canada
Great for the states but but not Canada
ChanceCreighton - Using it now as we speak in Wyoming!
Being from Arkansas I haven’t had much opportunity to scout Wyoming before coming up here to hunt antelope. I would be blind without this product. It is far and away better than anything else on the market. I’m hoping in future updates we might be able to spin the map to the direction user is moving, have a live compass with elevation, and maybe one day Apple Watch capability. Until then I will keep using it to help me harvest big game across North America and do it legally!
Benelli Babe - Americans hunt in Canada... yet no Canada maps?!
Would be STELLAR if they had a Canadian option... (this is coming from a Canadian!)
It really pisses me off, mainly because MANY Americans choose to come up to Canada to hunt, so if this app is truly used by ‘US Hunters’, they’d have mapping in Canada laid out as well. Don’t be so greedy, ‘Murcia. Share your passion for the outdoors with us Canadians! We share our land with you, and you share your land with us. Sooo why not mapping on this app?
Canadian hunter Trev - Canadian hunter in Wyoming
I find this AP extremely valuable and recommend it to any hunter.
AP just needs to work in Canada for American and Canadian hunters.
mybayani - Geoff in Canada
This is my go to app when I am traveling in the US. Tells me all the basic information I want to know about farm properties that I may be interested in.

stape01 - Gave me the confidence to change the way I hunt
Began using OnX last year on a WMA hunt in GA. It’s a on a island make up of thick swamp, salt marsh and palmetto. Having the OnX map down loaded in my phone gave me the confidence to go into areas and see places that before were to easy to get turned around in. My buddy downloaded it for our hunt there this year and we where able to keep up where the other was hunting and pick the best route in and out.
On land near home even though I’m familiar with it, I was able to make connections with how deer are traveling from food plot to bedding areas.
Best of all is not having to keep up with an additional gps. Works great on airplane mode once the map has been down loaded.
DFleegs - Suggestions for a Great Hunting & Scouting App!
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.
Cworden23 - #Great service. Must I say no more !!!! ;)
#Great service. I had a issue with an update . I lost all my pins and years of info . Well my customer service rep. They stood beside me till we found out where we all went wrong and worked through all jumps and hurdles lol. We had a ruff first couple of hours lol I was livid lol I mean I was on 😡FIRE MADDD! But instead of giving up on me . My rep put up with my insanity lol and found the problem and gave me my 3+ years of Data back ! I went from blood pressure of 155 heart attack rate lol . To a easy zzzzzzz sleeping Pulse rate after all got fixed! Long story short ! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!!! These are real people and real hunters etc . Not a robot that doesn't give a rats @@@ !!! Thanks guys !!!
CW ( Bama ) #Boy
chancellorphutch - DEVELOPERS Please Read
While this app is 100% a game changer, I do have one idea that I feel would enhance the productivity even more. I know there are budgets and other things that come in to play but I noticed that the Maps app on iPhone has a much much better and seemingly more accurate picture quality when you switch it over to satellite mode. I will NOT stop using onX because it is my gps, but I would love to see onX with the picture quality that iPhone maps has. I wouldn’t have to constantly switch back and forth between the apps and I can have that same quality offline with my membership downloads. Hope you guys see this and thanks so much.
Bakoffb4death - Usability and Customer Service
All around just great. I used this app for the first time while stationed in Arizona and used to it to find hunt-able areas in pursuit of game in which I had zero experience with. From Coues deer to ducks to Javelina, it always came in handy.
With that being said, their customer service is phenomenal. After separating the military and moving back home, I forgot to switch my account over to the new state within the required window. I contacted customer service and they were understanding of the situation and had my account switched over within an hour of submitting the ticket. I’d highly recommend to friends but all my friends already use this app!
nailscarredhands - I got lost
I love the app. I went to an area that I had never been to before that did not have cell service. I decided to download the section of map I would be in at the last place I had cell service. Once I got to the spot I decided to park and I then marked my parking spot on OnX Hunt app to play it safe.
Good thing I did because when I went into the wood I set up and decided to move to a different spot and somehow got twisted around without realizing it. At the end of the day I packed up my tree stand and headed back towards my vehicle.
I noticed I was walking a lot longer then I did going in so I pulled out my cell phone to check my vehicle location I had marked. I found out that I was walking away from vehicle instead of walking towards it.
This place was a very remote place so thanks to onX Hunt I was able to get out safely and back to my vehicle. It was getting dark and I had no cell service so God only knows what could of happened.
It is easy to make a mistake and get twisted around I learned that as the sun starts going down everything looks different when you’re in an unfamiliar area.
Jebbitt - Most valuable scouting tool
OnX Hunt is my favorite scouting/hunting app. Having the ability to access both private and public land information is invaluable when hunting away from home. Living in Ohio I'm predominately a whitetail hunter, and I'm always looking for that new "stupid good" farm. Having multiple properties to scout, I save time by utilizing the topo feature to quickly locate pinch points and travel corridors, benches and saddles, valley heads, etc. Understanding how to read topography and locate these stand sites from a map saves me a ton to time in the field. OnX is very user friendly, and the ability to download and save map info ahead of time makes this app useful even in areas with no cell service.
Jumbo Dan - A hunting “must have”
I purchased this app for a hunting trip to Wyoming. Lots of private land in our area we drew antelope tags. The app helped us tremendously. We would never have known where we could or couldn’t hunt without it. I could not imagine having done that trip without it. I used it on another bow hunting trip to Wisconsin with the same results. It kept us on the right property. I also used it back home for deer season. I found more property boundaries I thought I knew but really didn’t. If you hunt by any private land, you “must have” this app. Being able to download maps and have them ready when there is no internet service was also a huge asset. Thank you OnX team!!!!
zach_comino - Reliable Maps
I have used many different types of GPS systems but this one is by far the best. This is a great one time purchase and definitely will save you money in the long run if your an avid hunter.
It is very accessible and easy to down load maps with many different formats for them (topo, google earth, etc...). Not only that but other GPS’s off of phone devices I’ve found don’t always find a satellite. ONXhunt is definetly the exception and have yet to see it not find a satellite in the feild. This app is a hunters dream, public and private is spot on and from what I’ve seen always updates with new boundaries. Definitely 5 stars and a great purchase for those who love the outdoors.
Ozark Ram - Great app
I bought this app when I bought a big chunk of land and wanted to mark the property lines so I didn’t trespass onto neighboring property. I wasn’t sure how accurate the app would be, but I found out quickly - it helped me locate an old PLSS corner monument that I never would have found otherwise. My property is in very rural Arkansas, where I would assume the data from the county is not very accurate. The app got me within 20 ft of the actual corner, which may sound like a lot, but it’s a lot closer than I was on my own. A surveyor wanted $2400 to mark corners for me, I was able to find them myself thanks to this app. Money well spent! And it’s fun to look up owner info on other properties.
Zhand20 - Best hunting app out there
Hunting in Maine, as well as all across the US, there are times when you may want to want some property or may just be wondering where a property line may lay. That is where ONx comes into play and you can see everything needed. In Maine, we use it mostly to see property owners and property lines so we are not crossing boundaries while hunting for turkeys, whitetail, and moose. We also use it to mark where we may have seen some promising sign in the woods and where we have put stands and cameras up so we can keep track of our herd and don’t lose gear.
All in all probably one of the apps I use the most and would recommend to any hunter and even fisherman.
Barrel business - Best app Ever
The folks at on x have put together the best app ever. I can believe how much time I use this app from scouting to just every day life. If you take the time to learn the app it will be you number one resource for hunting and scouting.
The only reason I gave the app 4 stars, because it deserves 10 stars but the only reason I gave the app 4 stars is a few times out in the field the private and public line were a little off. The app showed we were on public but it was quite obvious we were not. This happed twice hunting in Utah, Pine Valley. It’s really hard to say if the fence line was off by 100 yards or so, or if the map was off. Either way I love the app and I use it almost on a weekly to daily basis.
Thanks on X keep up the great work.
WIoptifade - The most important piece of hunting gear
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.
Non-X - Off Grid download malfunction
On the face OnX has potential and really the only reason to get it for me was the ability to use it for gps when off grid. Seriously if you are on grid then it might be slicker but functionally the same as google maps.
Needless to say it takes too long to download map sections to the phone that I have been timed out each time I’ve tried to use it. Still no off grid maps. Waiting 40 minutes for a 300Mb file to down load is not acceptable.
The cherry on the cake is that I called them today to see what is going on and the Friday before elk opener they have decided their elk hunting is more important than supporting their product. Yeah, I get it cause I’m going elk hunting with or without their maps. Time to dust off the Garmin 60CSx tried and true.
Baffling2me - Saved my bacon!
I’ve been able to read maps real well and can navigate most terrain. But OnX hunt offline maps saved my bacon from a land dispute, you see I was hunting on private property that borders u.s. forestry when a outfitter said I was on his land and he called the wildlife officer I was looking at a very large fine. But having a topological map along with OnX hunt offline maps I was able to prove I was on forest service land and that I was also camped on private property I had permission to use. Come to fine out the outfitter had moved fence line and was on forestry property and was on the private property also, he was fined had to move all the fences back and lost his outfitter license
Sfer84 - Best hunting tool I have!
I’ve only been hunting for a couple years. Most of my friends do not hunt, therefore I’m on my own with learning tactics, properties, and gathering as much information as possible. I have yet to accomplish my first harvest.
That being said, I purchased this app a few months ago and I’ve already found extremely promising properties. I feel very confident that this years spring turkey season will produce my first harvest. Being able to cross reference state fish and game property maps with the maps on this app is a huge advantage. Not to mention all the other features such as the waypoints, tracking your trail, and line distance.
Great job on the app OnX!
westernoutdoorphotography - Well made app
I just wanted to take a minute to let yall know you have a great product, and some great employees out there. Last week I was hunting in Colorado with my brothers and dad. We stopped midday at Freemon's General Store to have a burger and look over a place on OnX for that evening and the following days hunt. This gentlemen came up and starts chatting with us, his name was Curtis and he is a rep for OnX. Just a super friendly guy hunting with his wife, but it made our day that he took the time out of his vacation to promote a product that works so well. Even though we were unsuccessful we got really close and made memories of a lifetime. I wanted to tell yall about my positive experience. Awesome app. Great usability.
Cope125 - Excellent customer service
I had made an error when purchasing, and onX resolved the issue in a very professional manner, without me having to ask. I just told them my concern, and they took steps to correct it. I am in the customer service industry, and greatly appreciate high quality customer service. The app is also a great tool, and have been very impressed with it, and I haven’t even went on the hunting trip yet. It is a great product, as advertised. I believe the best advertisement is word of mouth from existing users, which is how I heard about. And it has exceeded expectations. It is a great product, and seems to be a great, honest company. Thanks again.
Rooster695 - More of a question than a review
Hi, I am using this app particularly in an attempt to navigate some state game area in the time of Michigan. However, I live in northeast Arkansas and hunt various public WMA’s. With that being said, the quality of the maps are somewhat diminished, when highlighted in blue, as the WMA I hunt, in particular. I would still like to be able to see the usual satellite image, with an OUTLINE of the state areas I choose to hunt. I have looked in the settings and Connor find anything that seems to do that for me. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope it has helped! Other than that, great app, especially nice feature having the offline maps. Thanks!
NatefromMN - WY Antelope
I’m convinced we would not have had the great success we had in our trip to WY without the On-X app. We had scouted online areas we thought would be good before we got there, from Minnesota and Reno respectively, but found these areas more conducive to mule deer then antelope. So as I continued on with my app I found and area that was exactly what we were looking for, both to hunt and camp. We were prepared to spend a week if needed. But we filled our tags in two days. All the while knowing exactly where we stood! What’s more, I’m very appreciative of On-X’s efforts in identifying land-locked public hunting and working with various entities to try to make these more accessible! THANK YOU!
Ucctrba - Download Improvements?
I am really impressed with the app, and I am looking forward to using it in planning and executing several hunts this year. We are new to the state, so it has already helped to do some e-scouting.
My only complaint so far is the download interface. It would be great to be able to select an entire specific hunting zone and the desired layers for download. The current “screenshot” style selection is cumbersome for high res downloads of larger areas, and I worry about missing a section of the map I may find myself in later, when out of service.
Keep up the great work, and I look forward to exploring new territory using the app.
Why-T - Great app! Will be a yearly subscriber!
This app is amazing for storing maps and having them available for when you’re in deep country where the Elk are. No bars, no problem. It is easy to use and the ability to access on the website and app makes it perfect for planning hunts and setting markers. Know where you’ve been and how far you went with the tracker, which is also a must do for showing anyone that you were where you said you were. I would like to see the elk areas layer (unless I’m missing it somewhere) mine only shows which deer unit I’m in. No offense to Muley hunters...shout out to “HuntersNation” for making me aware of the app, awesome community to be apart of.
Jared Luciani - This app is amazing!
I have been using the app for the past year and absolutely love it. Its great for getting landowner permission as it shows the names of each individual landowner. Also the app is super useful when hunting small areas of private land and making sure your staying on legal hunting ground as well as not trespassing onto neighboring property. The offline map downloads are also great for when you know you’re going into a remote area where you wont have service. You can download the maps before hand and be set to conquer the backcountry! No complaints with this app always improving the game and making the hunt that much more enjoyable.
Im1bigmomma - Thinking about it? DO IT NOW!
I’m a female travel nurse from Alabama working in New Hampshire. I have always hunted but being in an area that I know nothing about and would be hunting alone I hadn’t got in the woods much. I heard about this app and figured I’d give it a shot. It has been amazing! It’s very user friendly and regardless of having full service or none at all, having the ability to track yourself in the north woods and white mountains is priceless. The weather and terrain can be treacherous but this app gives you all the peace of mind you need to confidently go on the adventures you want. I’m so pleased with it and recommend it to everyone avid outdoorsman I talk to.
Bowhunter10 - Simply the best hunting App!
I’ve tried several hunting apps in the last several years but none comes close to the versatility and practicality of onX. I just recently completed a successful public land Tennessee turkey hunt in which I was totally unfamiliar with the property. Thanks to onX I was able to pre-scout the parcel from my home and develop several possible locations to begin my hunt. A day and a half of scouting confirmed the area as having plenty of turkeys . The waypoints I set through the app allowed me to access the area in the dark without blowing everything off the roost. On the third day I harvested a beautiful 21 lb 3 yr old mountain Tom thanks to onX. I enthusiastically recommend it.
okhillbilly - oklahoma flatlander
Hunted CO a couple of years with paper maps. The second year (won’t talk about the first “camping trip”) had a parks and wildlife guy explain to me what a hazing fence on public land was. In oklahoma a fence is a property boundary you don’t cross. I turned back over worry of crossing on someone’s property, losing valuable time, and lots of effort in elevation. Without onx I've been lost, turned back, and given up but with it I'm more confident navigating far from the truck. Won’t leave home without it. Thanks for actually making a useful app. It has also opened up thousands of acres of public land closer to home I didn’t know existed. Recommend it to everyone btw
pmarcoDGO - Absolutely Love My On X Hunt App and Subscription
My On X Hunt subscription has been such a fun and beneficial asset to my hunting and fishing activities. I use it year round for couch scouting (so fun), marking animal locations, marking habit, tracking my hunts mileage and other data, make sure I stay off private property, contacting private property owners, finding public access for elk hunting in Colorado, trout fishing throughout Colorado, saltwater fishing in Florida and Texas, quail hunting in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Kansas and an upcoming Oklahoma trip. I also use On X while traveling to quickly find public land to let my dog stretch her legs during a long haul or to find areas to pitch a tent for the night. The uses are endless!
AndersonH904 - Amazing App!!!
I’ve used other apps in the past, and this is by far the best out there. OnX has an easy to use platform with many features. I wouldn’t be able to keep up with all my properties as easy without it. It allows me to mark everything from properties I have permission on, trail cam locations, stand locations, you name it. I also use it to take notes in the app on my property permissions and past a pic of my permission slips for easy access. I could go on and on about everything it has to offer. But if you’re looking for a hunting app to show you everything you need to know about properties, etc., this is it!
RDAMDM - I can’t live without you OnX!
I have had this app for about 5 years (well I got it when it first was developed, however long ago that was). I LOVE it, and can’t go one week without it. I do a lot of trail running, hiking, traveling, camping, and no matter where I go, I can easily find access to a trail. I occasionally use the app to find places to camp as well, as I don’t plan ahead well with this because I never know exactly where I will be. It’s also useful for checking out land ownership, which can be useful! I just wish they would come up with some international maps!! (New project for you OnX?) thanks for making an incredible app!
Mshunn - Great app!
Just got back from a successful hunt here in Oregon, I used onX and the guys I went with had a couple Garmin hand held gps devices. onX ended up being the only one we used!
Having high res satellite images of the area we were hunting was a huge help! We were able to easily see how big the meadows were before getting out and exploring, it was amazingly easy to mark animal sightings, scat, blood trails, where we parked the Jeep, and much more. Fantastic app! The only complaint I have is how quickly it would drain my phones battery, but that’s pretty much true using any gps app, so make sure to bring a fairly high capacity battery bank!
old Mt hunter - Problem with ap
I have had this ap for sometime now. At first it was a workable program. Living in Montana the cell service isn’t good where the hunting is good. I could, can deal with down loading maps before going a field. And I did that years ago. The land has not changed but the program has, its harder to load, slower to load, and I lost all the old maps I loaded years ago. Going down a road, interstate, or walking afield the program takes to long before it’s useable. If I can out walk it(program) something has to go. I have tried removing layers but the down load is still to long. While standing on a hillside that I knows turns to private and no fence line isn’t the time to wait to maybe get a screen to find out if the buck is on public land. I’m glad I didn’t throw away my maps because I’m really thinking about canceling this ap!!
Gog8orz - Game Changer
This app literally saves more time than I thought possible. Being able to mark spots on the move, Check Topo maps while seeing where certain sign is leading all while in the field. With no downloading or having to get back to a computer to do. Stand locations etc all on one easy to use app that you can review all the time since most of us have our phones with us constantly. The offline map ability is awesome! Extremely user friendly, worth every penny! The share a location is great too for a safety feature since sometimes you change locations due to wind etc.
Bow hnt - It’s my GPS in the mountains
I no longer use my handheld gps while hunting elk. onX is my go to always. I make sure to have the maps downloaded for the areas I will be in and when the cell service is gone I switch to off grid. I also love that I can sit at home on my computer and scout with it online and mark all my findings so that they are there when I use my phone.
Though I use it every western hunt I go on I am from Illinois and the app is so handy here for finding property boundaries and also to find landowner names and addresses when trying to get access permission. Thanks for a great app you have a customer for life
98harleyman - Hunting and Land Ownership made easy!
I used to use my local county government website for my gps mapping needs but it would bout give me real time data and the aerial photos that where being used were from 2010. With some of my neighbors having having clear it or thinned the timber the photos were hard to compare to reality when I was on the ground trying to ensure that the crews had not come over the property line.
Having close to 1000 acres to manage in different counties and only one county having the gps mapping available was another problem that I was running into. I ran across an ad for the On X Hunt app to try it free for 7 days, well I can tell you this it only took about an hour for me to become a believer and a raving fan of this app. This app provides me with everything that I need right in the palm of my hand to do more than I thought was even possible.
Thank you On X Hunt you have truly made my life as a hunter and land owner easier with this app, keep up the great work!
tconhunter - It’s about time
I am part of a group managing the deer herd in some metro areas. We usually hunt in city parks. When I have to track a wounded deer this app allows me to know if I am on park property or residential. If it’s residential I can see who the owners are so I know who to contact for permission to go on their property. It’s about time this was available and at a reasonable price.
The only negative is that even though you recently changed your source for maps the resolution of your maps when zoomed in is still not as good of quality as your competitors.
The precipitation radar opacity is still too thick even at its lowest setting. I can’t see the map. Hope this is easy to tweak.
Love the app! Easy to use.
ClowersUniverse - Great app and great customer service. Thank you!
Had experienced an issue with my phone not loading the downloaded maps correctly while in the field. Contacted the support team at onX, and they responded quickly, with a detailed explanation on how to solve the issue. Here’s the best part, after sending the resolution....they followed up....hard to believe in this day and age. They actually seemed to care if their solution worked for me (it did).
Thanks onX, love your app. I own about 300 acres of timeber with 30+ trail cams and 20+ stands. It is all so easy to navigate and manage with your app, use it every time I’m in the woods. Great job, thanks!
High goin - I wish I could rate it higher!
I just used onX for an antelope hunt in Oregon and it has completely changed the way I will forever hunt. I knew where ALL of the public land was and where we could, and could not, hunt. We ran into a man and his wife who were hunting the unit for the first time as well and we had asked him if he had asked the property owners first before he had set his groundblind up on their property. He said he thought it was public land...... and then he quickly scurried over and moved his blind. Buy it, and it will become as valuable and useful as your boots and weapon and you’ll never leave home without it!
Bigbuck3420 - Need map update.
This app has been amazing for me. It has been much easier to look at an up close area of where I want to scout. I love the fact that we can share way points. It does everything I need it to do. The only thing I would say needs to be updated is the pictures of the states. When I log in at my job it still shows it as a dirt lot. The building has been here for almost 3years now. So I would think some of the water holes my not exist anymore and some of the roads and trails my be permanently closed. If there was a way to show if a road has been closed that would be a big help as well. Other then that this is an amazing app!
western states nomad - Awesome App worth every dime
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.
7mm08mo - Awesome app!!!
This app is the best app on my phone! I used it every day in Wyoming on my Mule deer hunt, absolutely crucial where I was hunting. If I hadn’t had onx I wouldn’t have been able to harvest my buck!! Absolutely no doubt I wouldn’t have tried to go where he was on a little finger of public that jutted out into private. I even got checked in the field by the game warden because an outfitter on the private thought I was trespassing, but I wasn’t. The warden also had onx on her gps. Worked perfectly, love the ability to save maps offline, as I didn’t always have service. Very easy to do. Would recommend to anyone.
Sgt6172 - Versatile
I’ve used it on scouting trips and actually hunting trips. I know the areas I’m in pretty well but it does make for a much faster trip back to the truck when I can see the map I downloaded versus just knowing the general direction to a logging road. It’s never let me down even in areas with no service. It also helps me remember where I’ve seen certain signs of animals and when I saw them. Overall very well designed, extremely useful in many ways, and well worth it. Much cheaper than buying a GPS and in my opinion functions the same if not better.
406unltd - Can’t leave home without it
This gps has totally changed the game for hunters. I have the confidence to get into places that other people don’t because I know that I’m 100% legal. When I don’t have to worry about those types of things I’m a more affective hunter. It also gives us the opportunity to really scout areas that we have interest in. This company is on the cutting edge and are continually adding info and incident updates like where fires are and or have been recently. Too many features to list here but it’s a must have and worth the small price you pay for piece of mind.
Fierce Visual - Loved free trial! Too pricey after that.
The features in the free-trial premium version of this app were just what I had gone searching for when I figured surely somebody had made an app that let you know who’s land you were looking at. I did find that some of the info in our area was out of date, not matching the publicly available info from our county assessor. But it was darn close.
I’m not a hunter, instead wanting this app for finding local public-access lands for hiking and camping. It worked great for that! For a week. (The free version is near worthless if you ask me.)
But, alas, $30 a year (and per state?!) was not worth it to me. I was fairly surprised at how high that was. I might have paid $30-$50 for a lifetime license to the whole lower 48.
Maybe you hunters find that fee trivial. You ARE the target customer. Best of luck to you. I now am in search again for a more inexpensive app that can answer, “Who’s land is this?”
By the way, the response time of the developers if you contact them is sensational! 5 stars for customer service.
Be safe one and all in these unprecedented times.
Patarealist - I loved the 7 day trial, going premium!
I downloaded this app for the 7 day free trial after seeing several discount offers on Facebook. I took it on a couple scouting trips to see how accurate it was, and I found it made it easy to make sure I hadn’t crossed onto private land. Especially areas where it’s not easily discernible with fences or other natural border markers. I’ve got to say I like the app so far. I feel it is probably more useful for big game hunters than upland bird and waterfowl hunters like me, but so far it has done exactly what I’d hoped. Based on the free trial experience I plan on purchasing the premium version.
OG854 - No matter where you go, you know where you are!
I’m using the Montana chip which readily gives me the information about where I am and what is in the surrounding area. Knowing where I am is essential to keep me where I’m supposed to be (and being a responsible hunter). Having up-to-date information regarding land ownership and their boundaries, where public lands and access there to are and so much more information takes the guesswork out of the equation when you are out in the field. If you only hunt in a single state, the Premium level is what you need and well worth the annual price!
brager549 - Keeps Getting Better and Better!!
I’ve used this app for several years now and love the advancements the team has made each year. I love the ease of caching maps for offline use as well as being able to toggle between the three base maps (satellite, hybrid and topo). Very handy. And the customer service is incredible. Very quick responses each time I make an inquiry.
My request for a future advancement, especially for the web version, would be the ability to tilt and rotate the view into more of a 3D view similar to Google Earth. That would be awesome.
Keep up the great work!
Adam Satterfield - 2nd season with this app!
Can’t say enough about it has helped me tremendously!
Can’t wait to get back in the woods with all the spots I have marked from last season continuously hunt a WMA close to my house phone service is nonexistent but with the off grid area feature that the app has that’s not a problem! I just save the areas that I’m going to hunt when I have service and have no worries when I don’t have service The only thing I would recommend for a user that has the same issues is to buy a portable phone charger so there’s no danger of you running out of juice for your phone
JDWID - Best app purchase I’ve made
This app is by far the best app purchase we’ve made. We use it reliably and consistently for hunting, hiking, camping and other general backcountry and frontcountry purposes. We spend a lot of time outside, when on land we use OnX, on the water we use Navionics Boating, that’s it. OnX, with offline maps enables your phone to be a GPS, with many solid mapping options, and enables great research data to plan any type of hunt. Cannot recommend this strongly enough. I still bring a map and compass, but after a year and a half using it, it’s yet to fail or be glitchy in any way.
Benji_Loser - Since the inception
I heard on multiple podcast about this feature coming out That was going to revolutionize the outdoor industry. Call I decided to give it a try and I haven’t looked back since. Although I only use it for my home state I use it in both Work- and recreation. It has become invaluable tool that I will never do without. The mobile version has worked flawlessly and my use of it. So many great features and map layers allow you to maximize your use of it! I have tooted my horn over this product to everyone I know. 10/10 would recommend!!
teamtakem - A must have for hunters or adventurers!
I’ve used this app a lot since downloading it. For hunting it has expanded my private grounds (over 200+ new acres this year) by getting me in touch with the right land owners and kept me legal while hunting new and unfamiliar ground. It also helped define the boundaries of some public ground I hunted that was not clearly marked. For Fishing this past year it helped me on an overnight trip to map out the river and campsite which kept me from setting camp on an island that was owned by a private land owner. If you don’t have the app yet give it a try, I think you will be impressed at all it can do.
