Onx or huntstand.

I’ve only ever had HuntStand, so I can’t compare. But just like with most technology today, they have WAY more stuff than I would ever want or need. Maybe I’m just old school. I pay for the upgrade, but I also use it for work to follow property boundaries while in the field. And I can figure out who the property owners are.

Ditto above. I have huntstand and it does all I need and more. Havent tried onx since I have all my data already on huntstand.  But I use it a lot for wind direction to plan where to hunt.  The property owner info is always helpful.

I tried both and stuck with HuntStand. It seems simpler to use and does everything I need. I primarily use it to set pins and look up property boundaries and owners. 

I'm surprised you say it's simpler.  I find it much more complicated. Huntstand has more options than one could ever want or use. I've had ONX for several years and decided to try huntstand this yr. 

I noticed a lot of properties that have multiple parcels, I will give you the info for the main parcel with the house on it, but the other parcels it will say no owner or records on file or something like that, where onx would have that info.

Gave up on both when they started charging for  property info and owners that can be found free  from the county online using  gis services ( free) same place both charge you to find.  It also gives tax map line same as both  free.  ( by the way none show exact property  lines. )  using free gps  on my phone can find where i am about anywhere.

Other then looking up land owners what advantage does it have over a hand held GPS ( what I currently use )

its just that it is tailored to hunters.  I can take the property map of the area I hunt and put in stand icons and add a harvest pin to open pics of deer that were taken in each location and can add info on date, weapon etc, shows a wind scent cone and you can have multiple locations separated out but just bring them up by toggling that name. Can lookup who owns neighboring properties all on the same app without exiting to a tax map.   Can map out blood trails.  etc. Just convience and dialed in to what a hunter would be looking for all in one spot. And can share maps with others which is handy if you have other guys hunting the same property.

Throwing a wildcard in here, I use HuntWise and have been pretty happy with it. Like many others, I don't use it to the full potential, but in terms of basic use, it does the job well. I'm not really tied to it but will use it again this year since the yearly subscription already renewed itself.

I will say that I've seen the Oak Tree layer that OnX has out and it seems like a cool feature, although a lot of people say it's pretty inaccurate. I think you need the Elite subscription to get it which is $100 a year I believe vs the $60 I pay for HuntWise Pro now.

I've used onx for a few years, never tried huntstand. I think their price is fair for everything they offer and I've never once had a bug or issue. Has helped me plan stands, track wounded deer and even help point family members to my location all very easily. I also believe some of your money goes towards some of the conservation organizations out there.

I buy the ONX for all 50 states, works great for looking up properties, etc. I don't use it to pin stands or anything like that since I know where they are all. But since I hunt almost exclusively public land I like to see boundary estimates, etc.

 

Huntstand I use the the free version just for those wind cones thing sometimes.
