Map Tools: Customize and Share Waypoints, Tracks, and Areas

Build Your Map to Find Elk

Mark and customize Waypoints for wallows, rubs, trails, and other elk sign to help you understand possible elk movement. Use the Tracker to map these routes, then share these Tracks for friends or family so they can easily follow your footsteps. Use the Line Distance Tool to plan hunting routes and gauge both distance and elevation for your hike.

See Your Property In a New Way

Mark each tree stand, trail camera, and deer sign on your property with custom Waypoints to help you visualize new stand sites, analyze how deer use your land, and ultimately make you more successful by gaining a deeper understanding of the property you hunt. Use the Area Shape Tool to size up your food plot, and the Tracker Tool to map out the best entrance and exit routes to your tree stands.

Basemaps for Hunters: Topographic, 3D, and Beyond

Satellite, Hybrid, and Topo Basemaps

onX Hunt provides three types of Basemaps, helping hunters understand the landscape and how to move through it. Satellite shows aerial imagery of terrain. Topographic gives a two-dimensional representation of Earth’s three-dimensional landscape. Hybrid is the perfect blend of Satellite and Topo, combining all of the advantages of topographic maps and aerial imagery to provide hunters with the most comprehensive look at the land.

E-Scout With 3D Maps

Understanding the lay of the land is a critical factor in determining the success of your hunt, and our 3D Maps on desktop and iOS allow you to do exactly that. Combined with features like our Hybrid Basemap, the ability to view 3D Maps gives you the tools you need to understand how animals move across the landscape—and where you need to be to cross their paths.

How onX Map Layers Work

Map Layers allow you to customize your map for your hunt. Based on the species and region you hunt, you’ll want to turn on layers that are relevant for your location and species. onX Layers allow you to customize your map to give a personalized experience.

Map Layers for Every Hunter

Our state-specific Map Layers include property boundaries, landowner names, and state-specific hunting information. Within the Hunt Layer Category, you’ll find layers such as Historic Wildfires, Roadless Areas, and others. Look in the Trails & Rec Layer Category for recreation sites and other points of interest as well as trails, trail mileages, and trail slopes.

Desktop Maps for Better Planning

Sync Your Maps Across All Devices

onX Hunt members get complete access to onX Hunt on their desktop computers—perfect for serious e-scouting on a bigger screen. Using desktop maps with 3D Mode allows you to research, evaluate, and plan for a hunting area before you get boots on the ground. Your Map Markups (Waypoints, Lines, Shapes, and Tracks) and all the data you save on your desktop syncs across all of your devices so you can take advantage of scouting time to be more efficient, knowledgeable, and successful when you hit the field.

 Wind & Weather in the onX Hunt App

Weather Updates From 100,000 Weather Stations, Updated Every 15 Minutes

Weather Icon

Current and Forecasted Weather

Once you have your hunting spot picked out, the next step for any hunter is knowing the weather forecast and how it’s going to impact your hunt. Live weather reports, weather forecasts, wind direction, sunrise / sunset times, and barometric pressure are all curated within the onX Hunt App to keep everything you need in one convenient place. Large, intuitive visuals make it easy for hunters to identify upcoming weather patterns and make in-the-moment decisions.

Wind Icon

Wind Data, Right in the Hunt App

See an hour-by-hour forecast for wind speed and direction for the next eight days at any spot on your map. Know how wind direction might change by the hour, if barometric pressure is rising or falling, or if the rain will worsen or turn into a drizzle so you can adjust your tactics based on current and forecasted conditions.

Navigation Tools: Tracker and Compass

Compass in the Hunt App

Use the compass right in the onX Hunt App to find your location and orient yourself. Give the Location Button on the bottom right corner of the App one tap to center the map on your current physical location, tap twice to rotate the map in the direction you’re facing, and tap three times to rotate the map back to a north-up orientation.

Use Tracker to Mark Your Trail

The Tracker feature allows you to record your path as you travel and saves it on your map, taking the guesswork out of backtracking so you can have the confidence to explore the unknown. You’ll also see the time the trip took, as well as distance and average speed. This data is saved along with the Track and can be viewed in the My Content menu.

Offline Maps

No Cell Service Required

When to Use Offline Maps
Save an Offline Map before any trip into the field—even areas with widespread cell coverage may have small pockets in which service may drop off. In the event that you find yourself in an area with spotty or nonexistent cell service, you’ll still have access to your map.

Offline Maps 101
Quickly and easily download maps to your phone before heading into the field. Offline Maps are easy to update and sync to your account as soon as you return to service. Your live location information is based on your phone’s built-in GPS, so you’ll see a blue dot on the screen telling you exactly where you are at all times.
