on X Maps
« on: December 23, 2017, 02:44:09 PM »
Have any of you used this app?
It is very detailed....
Just not sure how often I would use it....therefore, is it worth the money?
(they have a trial version)

Ya me neither Hd,  maybe next time I head to the north woods to chase grouse I might try the free trial. I can see hunting out of state it might come in handy for sure.

I have a customer that bought it this fall and loved it. 
Anything that is free is worth saving up for.

I got the trial app, and used it...I found several things out that I didn't know...land has switched hands so much around here, it's hard to keep track. This app, has the latest details of land ownership.....

But, since we mainly hunt our own property, or my sister-in laws...I can't justify the cost....

$9.95 a month, for something that I might look at once or twice a year.

Granted, it's a very nice thing to use if you are touring and thinking of hunting / hiking / canoeing WMA's
At least you would know where the boundaries are....

BE VERY CAREFUL!!!!  I know of a group of guys that were hunting what was labeled school land on ON X and they got pinned for trespassing in both MN and NE.  I personally would go nuts without it, Its great for out of state hunts and I have been able to find small parcels on public land because of the App. I bought the US $100 version because I do go on out of state hunts and has been too Valuable to ever hunt with out it again.

I just went to the website and two things seem odd to me.

First is a claim that the GPS system on your phone works even if you don't have service.  I don't have a cell phone and so I can't check that out but I don't understand how that can be accurate.  I was on a road trip to DC and my companion had an Iphone and an Ipad.  We were in no place West Virginia and were getting really weird info from them, and they didn't match up.

Second I don't see how the land ownership info can be accurate.  There are a lot of places where ownership records aren't maintained on-line very well.  How does this company come up with the info and how often is it reviewed?  Does the name do you any good without more contact info?  Knowing that the Dorko Trust owns the piece you would like to access doesn't do you much good.
