    You don't have to have cell reception. Download the maps ahead of time. Your smartphone has a build in GPS receiver.

    Got ya,

    I thought the GPS on my phone had to have cell coverage.
    I guess I never thought of it that way.

    Learn something everyday!!!!!

    After doing some quick reading; having cell coverage with my Droid would definitely be preferable, but as long as I have a fix when starting the app it will continue to run. Wondering how much memory the maps take?

    I've gotta be honest...
    I'm not real impressed with the app, and in fact I'm quite disappointed.
    Using the "cached" maps in "offline" mode you can only zoom in to around 4,000 feet!
    I've now gone back and forth with their support with no resolve.
    I don't know about you guys but an accuracy of 4,000 feet just does not cut it.

    Downloaded it to my phone last night, what a great phone app. I will use my phone app for hunting around home but when I head to alaska, wyoming or colorado I will be using my garmin.

    Mailed my old Nebraska chip in for an update a couple of weeks ago. OnXmaps screwed up and mailed the chip to my old address in another state where I lived 3 years ago when I purchased the chips. I filled out the paperwork with all the updated contact info, even my check has the new address on it. Now I have no chip for my upcoming hunt and have received no response from the company about their mistake. Hopefully they will make this right ASAP.

    I just downloaded the free hunt app. The best tool for us hunters I have ever seen. Big thanks to the RMEF for doing it for us. I put it on my iPad, and will be purchasing a Garmin 600 and the chip with it.
