OnX issue 2.0
« on: May 17, 2022, 05:26:28 PM »
When I'm out and set my program to "tracking" it follows me for a short time, then once my phone screen goes to sleep it all shuts down. When I turn my phone back on it will only show a straight as-the-crow-flies line between where I am, and where I was when the phone screen timed out.
Try as I might, I can't figure out why.
Any suggestions besides keeping the phone screen activated all day?
Thanks,
You'll never get a Big'un if you keep shooting Little'un's.

If your battery saver is on turn it off. I had the same problem.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I use onx all the time, I'm still trying to figure out how the pioneers made it out west without a map app on their phone?  :chuckle:

LOL... I swore I would never carry a cell phone with me in the woods.  Even when cameras started appearing on phones, I swore I wouldn't do it.  Damn you On-X...  :chuckle:

One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

Thank you for the tip. I'll give it a shot and look up my settings.
Before GPS my Mrs. and I used to do a lot of cross country horse riding in the Goat Rocks and Glacier Peak wilderness areas with good USGS Topos and compass.   I too often wonder about "heading out west" or running a trap line without much more than a guess as to where you are, and prayers to where you are going.

As someone who's spent a few nights pondering just where I was exactly, I always liked the old Daniel Boone quote: 

"Daniel Boone, when asked if he ever got lost out in the wilderness, replied, "I can't say I was ever lost, but I was once bewildered for about 3 days."
You'll never get a Big'un if you keep shooting Little'un's.
