From onX:

You know about our most popular layers: Public and Private Lands, Waypoints and Tracks. If you haven’t explored much of the Hunt App, here are a few of our favorite features.

OFFLINE MAPS
Take the Hunt App far beyond cell coverage. When you save a map before heading into the field, you can view the map in Offline Mode. This feature uses the GPS transmitter in your cell phone to show your exact location on the map. Track yourself with the blue dot while in offline mode to always know where you stand.

WAYPOINTS

Share Waypoints:
Share a meeting spot or the last drop on a blood trail, by simply sharing a waypoint with your friends. If your friends do not have the Hunt App, you can still share a waypoint. The shared waypoint will let the user install the app first, and then give them the waypoint once they have created an account. No purchase required.

Go-To Waypoint:
Tap a waypoint to bring up the waypoint menu, and select the “Go-to >” button in the upper right corner of the menu. This will give you the quickest route to the waypoint.

MAP ORIENTATION
Not sure which direction you’re looking? Tap the crosshair icon in the bottom-right corner of the map. The map will automatically orient to the direction you are facing.

TRAIL SLOPE
In the “Trails & Rec” drawer, find “Trail Slope”. Trail slope represents the steepness of the trail in different sections. Green being the easiest, red being the steepest.

MOTOR VEHICLE USE MAPS (MVUM)

Turn on the “USFS Motor Vehicle Roads & Trails” layer from “Trails & Rec”. Tap on different roads to discover the type of vehicle allowed, gate closures, and more data about where you can travel in a motorized vehicle.

WILDFIRE
The Hunt App features “Current Wildfires” and “Historic Wildfire” layers that show the outline of the fire perimeter. Tap on the fire to find out the name, acreage, and year of the fire.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN ELK FOUNDATION
Find the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation layer in the “Hunt” section. Tap “Layer Settings” to toggle between RMEF access points, permanently protected lands, current elk range, and historic elk range.

NWTF WILD TURKEY RECORDS
onX has teamed up with the National Wild Turkey Federation to digitize twenty plus years of turkey records into a map. Browse number by county, average spur length, average beard length and more by entering Layer Settings.

QDMA CWD DISTRIBUTION
View Quality Deer Management Association records of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) reports by county.

LAYER SETTINGS
On the layer icons in “My Layers” and “Layer Library” you will find a “Layer Settings” bar at the bottom. Tap on that to enter Layer Settings. Here you will find different options for layers such as Hunting Districts and RMEF layer. Also, you can change the transparency for the layer to be more or less prominent on the map.
