What about Canada eh?Was so excited when I saw this App advertisement in North America White Tail magazine. I guess North America doesn't include Canada!.Version: 4.7.0

Not worth itNot worth anything.Version: 4.29.1

Really wish this worked in CanadaGreat for the states but but not Canada.Version: 4.21.0

No Canadian supportLooks like one hell of a great app. To bad there’s no Canadian support as usual..Version: 4.16.1

New Update....BAD!I wouldn’t write a review if it wasn’t for the fact on how disappointed I am with the new updates for the phone app and desktop. Before the recent updates I loved the app and was telling other friends and family that hunt public land here in Texas about it. I really don’t understand why they chose this new satellite image where it looks like it’s not clear at all (grayish) until your dang near zoom all the way in before it clears up. They also took away the feature where the last zoom ( on older versions) you can see the change of terrain i.e. pines trees vs oaks trees. Here in Texas that feature is really crucial because knowing where specific areas that have oaks eliminates excess hours of useless scouting in the pine areas or areas of no interest. I really hope I’m not the only one dealing with this and that it becomes a bad enough issue they go back to how it was. It’s still a good app as a whole but those missing features are really irritating..Version: 4.17.1

Needs work stillOld version worked well. Newer version has been problematic. Can’t import google earth waypoints (yet)... old version would. Layer transparency has been a big issue. Can’t control the roadless layer transparency offline so you can’t see the dang map underneath. Can’t even turn the layer off which caused a lot of headaches 2 weeks ago in Montana. Hopefully fixed now. Would like to be able to download larger blocks off high detail or custom shape of high detail maps for offline use. Downloads in 5-mile blocks are a PITA and take all day for large areas. Downloads should include all data layers and give user control over layers offline. Instead, if it’s not on when you download you don’t have it. Bottom line is that the new version was released prematurely before bugs were worked out and functionality was verified. And it was released right before bow season... nice timing. It’s a fantastic app when it works right yet incredibly frustrating when you’re depending on it and it doesn’t. Please keep working on it. I know you will get it dialed in soon..Version: 4.2.0

Not for CanadiansDoes not work in Canada! Wish it did..Version: 5.2.0

NOT GOOD IF YOU LIVE IN CANADAAmerica Sucks Zero use in Canada No maps for Canada.Version: 3.1.3

Not good offline and having to constantly re-downloadSame story different version of the app. The offline maps take forever to download, they don’t download at the same quality. I have major issues when I can scout from my phone or computer but download the map section (yes at the highest quality) and all I see in the field I blurry objects. It takes a lot of time and energy to download large portions of maps for offline storage and half the updates ONX comes out with deletes the saved maps you have stored. You have to turn on every layer to actually download that data which i guess isn’t the end of the world and maybe some guys don’t download all data to save room on their device? Not sure just make a button to click to download all available layers so you know your covered. I have always liked and used ONX but I could be so much better. They do a lot for land access and certainly have made a good name for themselves. Hopefully someone like basemap can put out a functional offline mapping version so those of us who utilize the offline version especially across multiple states and/ large portions of states for different species can easily download and access the data later..Version: 20.34.1

SucksIf your in Canada don’t waste your time with this app.Version: 4.27.1

Doesn’t support Canadian huntersTitle says it all..Version: 20.6.0

What about Canada?...Unfortunately I can’t review this app accurately because I can’t use it. It was marketed as covering “North America”... last time I checked, Canada was in North America. Sigh. Hopefully they move up at some point. It looks awesome..Version: 4.22.1

Doesn’t include Canada at all. So it’s no good.Too bad it doesn’t include canada maps. Strongly suggest they include it so we can download it..Version: 20.38.1

Need this to work for canadians tooWe have alot of nice territory here too and many hunters! Even meat eater comes hunting up north Plz make this available for canadian maps too.Version: 21.3.1

No Canada option!!How long do Canadians have to wait for this “North American app” to be fully functional in Canada? Ridiculous.Version: 20.46.0

Canada?The great white north isn’t part of North America?.Version: 4.29.1

No CanadaNo Canada.Version: 20.14.1

Canadian mapsWhat’s the hold up? Where’s the Canadian maps?.Version: 4.21.0

Canada is not part of North America?App is 100% useless for Canadians. Someone needs to make something like this for Canada....Version: 4.22.1

Was an amazing tool, keyword was!I've been using this app to find landowner and property lines and it's been amazing until this most recent update that reworked the offline maps and now it is horrible. Offline maps used to be smaller and more manageable on a phone now you might get 1 whole map on your phone which is absolutely horrible compared to the dozen I had saved before and still had room for more. I don't understand why they have tried to fix something that wasn't broken, the new layout seems nice but the offline maps are ruined and that is what I rely on since I don't always have phone service, I may need to look at another mapping app. Update: Thanks but they didn't help either, also if you used the old USA topos in the past that is not an option anymore, now it's just the topo lines over a white page and that's it, you don't get the land cover coloring that should be on there. And again nothing has changed with the new updates.Version: 4.5.0

Why I cancelledI was initially excited when I purchased OnX two years ago and found the app helpful. However I will be canceling my membership and going with another service after many failed attempts to have issues corrected. I own a large parcel of land that is used primarily for hunting and fishing and often invite friends and family to hunt. I noticed the property lines on my land had switched to outdated lines from years ago. Also the land owner information was incorrect and displayed the previous owners information. I attempted to contact OnX and tried to tag the land with the updated ownership many times over the last year. It is very frustrating that after a year I have not got any response from OnX. I’m not paying for an outdated app and non existent customer service. I have found other apps that have the correct boundary lines and land owner information so I will be taking my business elsewhere. I will also be canceling the five other accounts I pay for that family and friends use. I am disappointed and frustrated that I have to start over with another app but I can’t justify paying for a service that isn’t correct..Version: 20.46.0

So out datedThese maps or so completely out dated it's not even funny. None of the owners of properties are correct the property boundaries are 25 feet off of actual boundaries they do not have the correct boundaries for hunting zones they're off about 190 yards and I know that's because I got a huge fine from fishing game because I was 90 yards in a different zone this is the worst app for hunting it's going to get you tickets and thrown in jail then it's gonna do any good for you and on top of that they don't even allow you to go past the seven day free trial without charging $30 to your iTunes account shutting everything down because you're is no credit card attached to that iTunes account to pay the $30 I did not want to pay them in the first place. I even went in and made sure that auto renew was shut off and when I went back it was turned back on by Apple themselves just so they can shut my account down from being able to update any of my other apps..Version: 4.18.2

No Canada ?Was pretty disappointed to find out this app isn’t available in Canada, what’s up with that ?.Version: 4.32.1

Canada eh!This app does not show you any information pertaining to public or private land in Canada. I have been using it on private land to mark trails tracks and scrapes and it seems to work great..Version: 20.44.0

Some many issues this hunting season.OnX has been an important part of my hunting prep, planning and hunting for the past 3 seasons. This year I had scouted all summer with it with no issues until the week before season. I get into the backcountry and all my saved maps didn’t work. The next weekend they fixed the issue so all the maps now showed again but now everyone in my elk camp with an iPhone couldn’t see topo just the imagery .... this has been the case for the last 10 days. Almost worthless when trying to navigate without lines all week and extremely frustrating when you put some much effort preparing for season to be left with an app that won’t work. I am confused on how I have had no issues the past two seasons but the season even the basics for navigation would not work. :(.Version: 4.18.1

Not very good...Expensive yearly sub. Not the best app for this sort of thing, not to mention it only works in USA but hey Canada, you can use the GPS 👍.Version: 5.2.1

OnXNo Canada? Have to update that... the app looks great lots of features! Would love to be able to use this app up here in the great white north!.Version: 4.30.1

Canada?This would be so cool in Canada looks like it would be handy.Version: 4.24.0

Americans hunt in Canada... yet no Canada maps?!Would be STELLAR if they had a Canadian option... (this is coming from a Canadian!) It really pisses me off, mainly because MANY Americans choose to come up to Canada to hunt, so if this app is truly used by ‘US Hunters’, they’d have mapping in Canada laid out as well. Don’t be so greedy, ‘Murcia. Share your passion for the outdoors with us Canadians! We share our land with you, and you share your land with us. Sooo why not mapping on this app? Just sayin’..Version: 4.19.0

A few things missing in CanadaI’ve been using OnX for a few years now. Many complains about the app not having “Canadian maps”; which is not completely true. Every GPS features are fully functional; this is the way I’ve been using it since day 1. But a few things are missing north of the border (in more that half of North America you know) : 1. Cities and roads is a must. It would be so much easier to find our way when eScouting a new area. Scanning satellite imagery is painfully and requires using another map tool on the side to locate an area on the satellite maps… The hybrid view is useless until roads are available! 2. TOPO maps! This is to me even more important than the new “trendy” 3D imagery available in other outdoors GPS apps. 3. Share areas/waypoints/tracks with my hunting partners one item at the time is painful and conter-intuitive. Even for someone with an IT background like me. 4. Fix the unit setting! The weather unit are inconsistently display throughout the app even when the setting is set to Metric. Until then, I’ll keep using the app all year long, but can score more than 3 stars….Version: 20.34.1

We The NorthJust a heads up to On X...Canada is part of North America. App is useless until you add Canadian maps..Version: 5.10.1

No maps in Canada?About to buy the app and so we’re 3 of my other hunting buddies but couldn’t find anything saying there is Canadian maps? Please make this for Canadian moose and white tail hunters.Version: 4.22.1

No Canada eh?I used it in Montana and loved it only to find out it doesn’t work in Canada.Version: 5.1.0

Doesn’t work in CanadaWhy is this even in the Canadian store?.Version: 21.3.3

Only works in USASo it’s in the Canada App Store but does not work outside the US. Looks like a great app but not for Canadians..Version: 4.35.2

OnXNeeds to be made available in Canada.Version: 20.38.2

Waypoints not accurateI subscribed to onX hunt for the last three years. In this time, the app has been a rollercoaster, sometimes good and sometimes not very reliable. Several times I have had to close and reopen the app because it freezes. Last year, they discontinued the “landscape” view that I used on my iPad, and upon contacting them, they assured me that it would be restored at a later date, but never was. Most recently, the last straw was on my archery elk hunt. I loaded offline maps before I left home, when I opened the app, it would show I was about 60 miles from where I actually was. I put an arrow in an elk, and immediately marked my position where I stood, and where I found first blood. I started tracking blood spots, and then went to backtrack to find my arrow and where first blood was, only to find that my waypoint was not accurate, and I never did locate the first blood spot. There are better gps apps available, do you’re research before subscribing, I will not be paying for this service anymore..Version: 4.25.1

USA ONLY not North AmericaApp should say “USA Only” the term North America is misleading marketing. There is awesome hunting in Canada but not enough market to map it. Thanks guys..Version: 4.35.2

Doesn’t work in CanadaCan’t choose a Canadian province. Should tell it before downloading and registering !.Version: 20.40.0

Not for CanadiansApparently you have to be American to be considered part of “North America” because this app doesn’t support Canadian hunters or land maps. Pretty much useless in the great white north..Version: 20.18.0

Property Ownership Updates SlowBased on my direct experience using the app as well as providing correct land owner information to OnX, they are very slow to update land ownership changes. I would venture to say that the land ownership is one of the most if not the most important map layer that hunters want to see. For the price that users pay for this subscription, this is the information that needs to be as current as possible, especially when the app is showing a property as open to the public when it is actually privately owned. I own property that was shown on the app as open to the public when I purchased it nearly a year ago. The app showed the property that was previously owned by a University Foundation as open to the public even though the foundation had it posted as private. I alerted OnX to this error and provided them all of the information they requested but the error still remains today. This land was never open to the public. If this is the speed at which the company handles a critical map error, as a user I would not pay the extra for “elite” membership. Just my personal opinion as a hunter and subscriber..Version: 4.23.0

Needs a Canadian VersionIt’s to bad that all we have for a Canadian hunter app is iHunter. Wish this app would focus some attention to Canadians..Version: 20.34.1

Needs CanadaI hunt out of Canada so it doesn’t help much until Canada is covered under North America.Version: 4.29.1

Would be 5 Stars if worked in CanadaWorks great for the 1 offline ore-downloaded map. But if you want to save anymore you have to upgrade but no Canadian option.Version: 4.2.0

CANADALots of us Canadians waiting for this app eh.Version: 4.29.1

Lacks featuresIs ok only for finding private vs public land. lack of on screen lat/long or grid is very frustrating and i am struggling to find more use for it other than that. used a competitor for a while and figured i would try this for the season since the pro or tv hunters all push it. So far i am not a fan. I liked the competitors map layers more and that it showed my my location real time. With out having to go into a sub menu. Also while out scouting the competitor worked with apple car play. Not useful for back country hunting but was a feature i found useful for small game hunting or scouting access routes. 3 month of use so far. Will most likely swap back to the other company for next season. Update for the developers after contact from them: its that i cant have my location show on the MAIN screen that i dont like i did contact customer support and was told that that feature was removed..Version: 21.19.0

No CanadaWish it had the public and private land for Canada..Version: 20.38.2
