OnX Backcountry Web App


Is onX Backcountry worth it?

Just like having the right pair of boots, putting reliable offline GPS maps and navigation at your fingertips can be priceless. But don’t take our word for it:

“This app saved my toes! Tried this out when backpacking Big Bend for the first time. Ended up getting snowed into a mountaintop campsite with a historic amount of snow. This app gave us the confidence we were going the right way to return to the base when we couldn’t see any trail or tracks at all and needed to get down in time to prevent frostbite.” — Apple Store 5-star review

Is the onX Backcountry App free?

Yes: onX Backcountry offers a free version of the App, which includes satellite, topo, and hybrid maps, as well as the ability to Track your trips and add markups.

Free does not include guidebook-quality Adventures, trail descriptions, recreation points, and the ability to download unlimited offline maps for real-time location tracking on the map even outside of cell service. Upgrade to Premium to access all of the App’s adventure potential.

What is the difference between onX Hunt and onX Backcountry?

Here at onX we strive to build our apps for a specific use as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach. onX Backcountry has specific app features like Avalanche Forecasts and Slope Angle for our backcountry ski/splitboard explorers. And for our backcountry trail lovers, we have a rich set of Adventures that have been curated specifically for hikers, trail runners, and backpacking enthusiasts.
