I'm partial to Garmin products and I was thinking OnX mapping. But that's ALL negotiable..........
Tell me what you're using, if you would, please.
What do you like about it ?? What don't you like about it ??
Thanks in advance !!!!
Hey man, so I was literally in your boat last week.
I am fortunate enough to get my hands on products to test before I get them myself.
Funny enough, I just got done testing OnX and a Garmin Foretrex 401.
Test result, I ended up buying a subscription to OnX and sent a thank you for letting me test the Garmin Foretrex.
Why? I used the Foretrex for a week straight.That might not be too long of a time frame to make a real impression on me but, it did.
First of all, I do not like the 12hr run time on 2 AAA batteries.
The accuracy was sub-par, especially in the "breadcrumb/track" mode.
I also did not like how long it took to acquire satellite signals. That time got longer and longer the deeper I was into the thick brush.
But, I did like the numerous features that it had, the customization ability, the small form factor, and the price. It is a proven platform but, not what I wanted.
OnX, on the other hand, is pretty much exactly what I expected.
I like the feature that shows you the property lines and it actually shows you the name of the property owner.
It's like Google Maps but focused on hunting.
Also, for under $30 a year. I feel it is well worth it.
