No...lots of confusion here about phones using the OnX Hunt app.Hi all, please keep in mind that though cell phones with the onxmaps can certainly be useful, they unfortunately will not work everywhere. I hunt SE MT a good bit and in many areas there, the cell phone is useless. Only my handheld Garmin gps unit proves totally reliable with good signal obtained everywhere I go. Next to my boots, I would rate the Garmin gps unit with the onX chip to be the most useful piece of equipment I own.
Phones have a built in GPS. Download the map on the OnX Hunt App to the phone- Off Grid tab- select 'Save new Map'. Put the phone on airplane mode when hunting. Open Onx app and go to the 'Off Grid' tab- select 'Go Offline' using the map that's been downloaded. Done.
