I just updated my chip last night. Wouldn't leave home without it.

Bought and used my first one this spring (Wisconsin), helped me kill a public-land gobbler near a poorly marked boundary. Very impressed. Bought the Wyoming chip since

I'm really looking forward to using mine this year. So I have a question.

Do I just put the chip into my laptop and it will just load the maps in to a file that I can open? Or do I need to download drivers from the website first?

I have the same question. I was trying to look at my WY chip on my laptop but truthfully I was worried I would do something wrong and erase the chip or something so I didnt try it anymore.

Just download Garmin base camp. Then insert your chip. Then (when the chip is in the computer) every time you open basecamp, your data/map is right there. And you can also toggle between your map, and Google earth. Click "view" in Garmin BC and at the bottom of that menu click Google earth. It will automatically flip over to Google earth and zoom to where you are on your onyx map at the time.

Also, onyx has a good video showing you how to make a way point in Google earth, and transfer it over to your chip/map. Kmz files they're called. Fun stuff!!

I just leave the chip in my gps and use a usb cord. No need to take out the chip to use on the computer. You do need the Garmin basecamp software. Really nice to see the chip on the big screen good stuff and very detailed. You can also overlay it on a satilite image if you have that on the GPS. I pull up all my marks from year to year to see patterns over the years.

There's no need to convert the tracks/waypoints. Save them as a KMZ and Basecamp will read them directly.

Yes, the chips are the same. They have changed the name of their company to ONxMAPS, but their website has not changed and it's still www.huntinggpsmaps.com

But the chips do not show topo on the device, correct? Only land ownership?

I will be the first to admit, I don't really know how to use a gps. But I bought an garmin Oregon a couple of years ago, and the micro sd card from huntinggps. I came across some guys that where wondering where the unit boundary was. I turned on the gps and was able to tell them, the top of the ridge was the boundary. pretty cool feature, having the unit boundaries on the micro sd card.

Now if I could just get the desire to learn the tool.

anyone used the android app download? Or just the GPS unit chip? Curious how the android app works.

If you go up to the "other" topic on the main page there is a thread on that. I have it, but haven't used it where you don't have service yet.
