I'm curious if onX will feel the need to develop a 3d component eventually. In the meantime I feel committed to it because I don't really want to pay for 2 mapping services, and I have even less interest in transferring the 1,000+ waypoints I have in onX to another platform.
You export waypoints from OnX and put them in GoHunt , takes about 3 minutes

Are you just here to pick fights? What value did you add to the conversation?
. . . . . Have you actually be watching Randy's shows for the last few years? When did you last see him using a GPS with a chip? Why do you think you know something here that no one else does?
Man rough crowd on that "trying to be funny" post...jeez Randy always jokes about his inability to keep up with the technology age and how it took him forever to leave that GPS with the chips...guess that joke was only funny years ago...

anyone else notice the folder for new mexico layers is missing today?...I suspect they are just working out a few kinks.... Seems like I saw a post where they were adding a feature that pulled up the layers that you had turned on the last time you used the tool. Maybe that is the issue for me... I hope they add a robust help section, FAQ's, etc. I have to admit, it is pretty dang slick so far...

NM layers are missing for me too. They had a broken layer that was making private land turn blue in NM, so maybe/hopefully they're fixing it.

With GoHunt's 3D measuring tool (circled below), I'm starting to find places that can only be glassed from a single, distant (without interfering with thermals) vantage point. This is a big deal since I now know that I can't use the top of a nearby mesa that rises 1,000 or so feet to the south of this area which has a lot of game traffic.

With that tool, I can quickly confirm the only alternative is a knob located to the northwest of this small, high traffic meadow. (Fingers crossed that I found a solid honey hole)

Sound's like I'm going to need to reverse-import my way points into Onx at least just for this season.

Also, I'm still using Google satellite since I can see the trails there, but not on Gohunt's satellite imagery.

Glad to see the New Mexico layers back as well..... And I have to agree, the aerial on GoHunt is good but I got back in google earth and wow....there is a substantial difference in image quality. I'm still excited about the tool. I'm really curious to see how the mobile version functions with 3D views...
