I use the satellite maps to find roads etc. and the lake info is pretty spot on. best part is FREE!

Showing property boundaries and land owners is great
Easier to understand and operate compared to others that I have tried.

I have MotionX-GPS. It's ok as long as you have phone service.

Im playing with onX right now. I like the ability to download maps to your phone and use the maps even when there is no cell service.

Finally was able to mark my location but how do you navigate from one location to another. Called OnX but they were not very helpful. Said you had to draw a line that there was not a “go to” button like most GPS. Any advise would be greatly appreciated as I would like to learn how to use this app. Thanks.

I am going to Colorado elk hunting next week and would like to know how to use it before then.

LR,
OnX will not map you from one point to another like a GPS in a vehicle.
If that is what you are asking.

If you save a waypoint then how do you get back to it.

Bottom center select "My Content"
Then hit the drop box for "Locations"
That will give you a list of saved waypoints. Select the waypoint you want, it will take you to it.

Don’t forget the track feature. Help you find your way back.

I use Huntstand. It allows me to mark locations, and has a Plot Owner feature for when the deer I just shot jumps a fence. Additionally, it syncs to a website, so you can share information between you and your lease mates.

I am in no way affiliated with Huntstand, just an avid user of the tool.

Hey BoBo, I guess I am computer and iPhone illiterate. How do you get the track feature to work. I tried it but never could get it to really do anything. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Can map your land. Check who owns the properties. Place icons where stands, feeders, anything is. Shows wind data for where your blind is. You can pretty accurately measure distances and area. Best of all, it's free version works great and not many adds.

For the water, Navionics is very good on my Android. I don't use it for land.

Yeah I down loaded Navionics, and like it a lot. I have a Lowrance on my boat with Navionics card, so look and feel is the same which is nice. And my Lowrance is always acting up, so good to have back up. And I have a smaller boat I take out, with no GPS, I been using crappy hand held garmin, so this so much better!!

When I downloaded it, it said 15 day trial? Do they charge after that?

The free version you do not get all the detail mapping, so I spent the $10 foe the upgrade.

X2 hunt stand. Great to see property lines and works well without cell service. Wish I found this app years ago. And it's free..
