  3. Meet New Quick-Customize Waypoints

We know Waypoints are one of your most important tools as the season starts, and we’re releasing a preseason update to make Waypoints significantly more hunter-savvy.

Waypoints Updates Include:

  • Create and edit in one step
  • Quick-select from your three most recently-saved Waypoint types
  • Other Waypoint options are sorted A-Z

These new Waypoints updates mean we can make the most of both our scouting and e-scouting efforts before the season starts, as well as the time when we’re actually boots-on-the-ground. We’ve focused on the updates you’ve requested, including a much faster, easier process to create custom Waypoints with far fewer steps than before.

Pro tip: make sure you’re running the most up-to-date version of the onX Hunt App so you have access to updated Waypoints.

Waypoints updates are active in iOS and Web Map, and will be coming to Android devices in the coming months.

Most folks who work at onX have dozens—if not hundreds—of Waypoints saved on our maps, and we’re always looking for ways to streamline the Waypoint saving process. When you go to save a Waypoint, you’ll now be able to easily choose from the three most recently-saved Waypoint types, with other Waypoint options readily viewable in an expanded list, sorted A-Z.

onX Hunt App allows you to create and customize a Waypoint to mark a spot or location while hunting.

Now you can both create and customize a Waypoint in one easy step. Choose from color, name, icon, notes, and even add a photo at the same time you initially create a Waypoint. It’s a shorter, faster, and cleaner way to save your Waypoints, which means you can focus on capturing all the information you need to make the Waypoint most useful—for this season, and the ones to come.

This is the time to put in the hours e-scouting, setting trail cams, and preparing for the upcoming seasons. We’re all getting excited for the opener, and taking what steps we can to increase our odds of success. And while a lot of that effort comes in putting in hours on the trail, ensuring we have a game plan for the big day, a lot of it is also organizing our Offline Maps, studying Web Map to e-scout the areas we physically can’t get to, and long conversations with buddies about strategy (and maybe a little reminiscing over years past, too).

We’ll see you out there.
