Hunters use onX to help them decide where to go and how to find their way in the field. The instructions in this article cover the basics of how to use onX to stay safe and legal on your hunt.
- Basemaps - Explore terrain and vegetation. Basemaps show aerial imagery, topography, and 3D maps (iOS and web) that let you study the landscape in detail.
- Layers - Research where you may be able to hunt with hunt units, property ownership, and more displayed on the map. Layers overlay important boundaries on the map so you can stay within the areas where you have secured tags and permission to hunt.
- Offline Maps - Navigate with or without cell coverage. Offline Maps saved to your device turn your phone into a hand-held GPS that you can use to orient yourself deep in the backcountry.
- Markups - Mark and share important locations. Markups such as Waypoints and Tracks let you see locations you marked while scouting, places you’ve been, and the path you took to get there.
