    Thanks! I thought I read somewhere that the android phones will work in airplane mode, but iPhone won't. Not 100% sure though.

    No problem, just called.

    According to Dave: It is preferred that you use it in field/airplane mode due to battery concerns, and the AP wanting to use what little service you may have to download maps.

    Answered my question!! I'm gonna go ahead and get it myself. Hope this helps MNH!

    Check with the local game and fish. I spoke with a Warden in WY last year when hunting some fractured BLM and he said to be careful as if a landower contested whether or not we were on Public or private the phone app won't hold up in court. I know this is a ridculous issue, as cell phones use the same GPS technology as a handheld, but the courts apparently don't see it that way.

    I use both, but always track my movement on my GPS, just to be safe. I use my phone app mostly to look at the overhead imagery in relation to boundaries.

    With the OnX you can cache content for the area you will be hunting ahead of time and then run your phone in airplane mode. It saves a bunch of battery life.

    It is a really wierd thing, and I am sure eventually they will come to their senses on it, but until then the GPS could save you a few hundred bucks.

    If you cache the maps you can zoom in to 4000 ft. Does it still show where you are too?
