I really like it for the landowner info. I find it really helps for tracking down owners who may not live on a particular property. Plus it makes it easier to knock on the door for permission if you atleast have a name to address them with.

Not sure about the phone app. But, do you live near Escanaba? Check out the movie "Escanaba in da moonlight"

The phone app didn't update the map quick enough when I got out in the sticks. It's more expensive but the onx chip for my Garmin works great.

Been great for me. Using it for 3 years now. Lot of big state land here with small private parcels dotted inside of them.

Here's an article I did for Trapping Today. https://www.trappingtoday.com/onxmaps-a-trappers-perspective/.

Jeremiah does a good job on a few videos and podcasts break down how to use it.

You can download maps for offline use. I state hope so I use the multi state for 1
$100 or whatever. Smaller states you can download the entire state. Areas I'm in more and require a finer detail I use the 5 or 10 square miles. Some spots the 150 square miles is sufficient to get your bearing.

Trapping Today has a promo code TRAP for 20% off your first purchase. I like onx as a whole and while it's not perfect I use it every day on the trapline.

I use it here in Texas and like it. Some counties info is not there but most are. Has helped me find new clients several times.

Works great. I wouldnít go afield without it. I also use it for reconnaissance when surveying. Beats a compass and a hip chain. Like previously said itís only as good as your areas GIS mapping.

I donít like auto renew requirements on any app. I like end dates because like some places will let you go past your end day then try to charge you even if you donít renew your membership.

I have a 2 month trial from the NWTF I got for buying Federal ammo Iíll give it a shot that way.

They need to update their landownership info.. Many properties do not have current owner info..

The app is limited by what is on record with the county.


Actually the app is limited to what is available from the county in digital format. Every land transaction is recorded by the county but in some places the record is hard copy only, or the digital version is not available to the public. In that case, neither Onx or any of the similar services will have the data. For those counties with an on-line service, typically called "GIS," the data should be available.

I have Onx and find it very useful. Even in areas where I have service a pre-loaded map is an advantage in that it loads much faster.

I don't think you can enter coordinates in app or at home. I think you have to scroll and save. If i am incorrect please explain how.


Help yourself.

I have used it since the beginning and worked with them about the symbols.
For my business and personal use, everyday I rely on OnX on my phone and an iPad, the OnX chip in a Garmin Oregon, and a Garmin Montana with InReach to keep me informed and communicating.
I have used the OnX chip in the Garmin Oregon to successfully resolve a very serious landowner + trespasser + trapping dispute that involved the state game warden and the county sheriff.

My county and the adjacent county are are on line with GIS and the OnX hunt data is still not up to date and hasnít been for a couple of years.

I havenít found a way to enter or edit coordinates. I put my settings to decimal degrees on my computer and zoom in and move the cursor to the desired location. A pain in the butt. The way I look at is Iím using the app for something it wasnít designed to do.

Just a reminder that most of these apps go off of tax maps registered with the county. Therefore the property lines are not always correct. My property lines are nowhere near correct on these apps.

I have 2 codes for a month each I plan to fire one up for turkey season, seen a group of 15 gobblers today coming out from pulling a camera chip. Guy said no expiration date on the codes.

I use the offline maps quite often, especially out of state where I have no service in a lot of places. Another aspect of this app is if I have a cellular signal I can send my location or locations to someone for immediate use or future use. Iíve found a signal and sent it to my son for a pick up location. I believe Iíve even sent some to members on here about some turkey spots in a western state. All this person has to do is go to the spot sent. It takes a little getting used to, but itís a great app. I went ahead and got the Elite membership and got some good deals on camo clothing and other outdoors products.

Very useful I use mine every week in the spring summer months for work,then when I'm able to go out of state hunting I use it there also.Well worth the cost.

I like Huntstand better.
$30.00 for the year and it covers the entire U.S.
Just another option to check out.


When life gets me down..... you know hunting/trapping season is closed.
