OnX Hunt App
« on: August 06, 2017, 09:00:31 AM »
Let me start by saying I've come to really like and rely on my onxmap app, that is until this last update. I am in no way a technological genius but I can get by, it all started with an update reminder on my iPhone. I was hesitant to update being so close to opening day but I wanted to use the new features so I went ahead and updated. I have to say the new features are great, couldn't be happier in that aspect. With the update you actually lose all your offline maps you've already saved which I didn't realize till after I updated. I lost a few lines and shapes and markings that I have done in the field as well. My real issue came when I started to try and save my maps again for offline use, I can no longer save maps for offline use. I follow the required steps and nothing happens, I then close my app and re open and under my off line/ off grid map it says zero kb of zero kb. I have reached out to onX and there response was basically they are aware of the issue and are working on it and to be on the lookout for an update. In my mind I'm FREAKING out, I have my gps and onx chip but invested a lot of time on my app. Cutting it way too close to season for the wait and see answer.

I've had similar issues with it until this morning. Now it seems to be working properly for me.  :dunno:

I am ecstatic with the update. I was able to save offline maps as of this morning. My IPhone had iOS update last so maybe that is the difference... :dunno:

Hope you get resolution, it really is an awesome update!
Just tend your own and live.

I also love the new update. Much faster and easier to save offline maps. My saved points and tracks came through the update just fine.

It's quite buggy. Their software testing lacks, seriously. I wouldn't count on it yet. The dedicated GPS chip is more reliable.

I spent a day creating a trail into a tricky area. Two days later the app is updated and my trail and waypoints are all gone. Looks like I'm going to be putting boots to the ground again just to get my trail right. It would be wise to head out and test the features of the new update before the real deal.

So I decided I didn't want to "wait for an update". I deleted my app and re loaded. I am now able save offline maps. Give it a shot if you're having issues. Figured it wasn't working anyway what more could I lose.

What issues are you having that you previously were able to accomplish?

:yeah:

Don't get me wrong, I use and LOVE the app and web browser version.  They're a great group and a huge benefit to the hunting community.  Buuuutttttt they still have some stuff to learn on making robust software. 

Totally worth the headache for me though.  The update is a big step in the right direction even if the delivery wasn't flawless.

Agreed, awesome product and horrible update.  I bet there are a bunch of guys with early tags sweating it out right now.
