Really going downhill. So slow now I can barely scroll around. Good alternative to OnX. Much easier download functionality although it's slow and I've had a few fail. I'm not in love with the outdoor journal, it's a lot of space allocated to something I'll never use. But YMMV. Generally love the app.

I was having a hard time trying to deside what app to buy,the wind cone sold me on Basemap. After using it for a couple days i sent in a few requests and to my suprise they got rite back to me, stating that some things are in the works and some are already in the app. I was looking for a layer that showed my syates hunting zones and they lead me to finding it in the app. I would recommed everyone try this app before spending you money elsewhere, they do need a few more markers but i am100% happy

By creating an account you agree to our TERMS AND USE. The "terms and use" shows CLICKABLE but does not work. Some people do like to read what they are agreeing to. I'd love an explanation why it doesn't work, feels completely dishonest and I uninstalled it. I shouldn't have to HUNT for info that you show to be clickable.

Great app and the different layers avaliable just increase the usefulness of both online and offline maps.

Landowner data is horribly out of date. I purchased land over a year ago and the app still shows the previous landowners name and information. I contacted Basemap and they told me that the information depended on when the county supplied the update. Several other apps show the correct information but base map is more than one year out of date.

Agonizing to use. Do they even use their own product? Too many bugs and UI issues. Slow. Map download stalls; waiting 12+ hours doesn't help. Tried several devices over the past year, offline maps still unreliable (not even with the recent claimed speed improvements). Adding the USFS MVUM layer causes the download to utterly fail. Property boundaries absent or disappear when zoomed in. (OnX map download is reliable, fast, and shows property information at all levels of zoom/detail).

Almost perfect for hunting, I have HuntsStand and Gaia installed, BaseMap works batter for me. Developers please pay attantion on features from Canadian app called iHunter, like species, bag limits, and hunt seasons when you tap on wma. In your case it is just link. Hopefully we will see it soon.

Honestly I love it and it is seriously so easy to use. There's so much you can do as far as marking certain "sweet spots" and tracking every step you make before you even head out. It's awesome-sauce💯

This is a question but a review. I can't seem to find anyone to ask. And I'm sorry if this is a stupid question ( I was born blonde, so bare with me) Why does the app need access to my contacts, pictures or storage? Please help

Just started to use it. It is way more intuitive then the competitive "Pro" product. I do NOT feel like I am constantly fighting this product or waiting for it to do something. Just finished 3 days in the Bush with Basemap. It was incredible. It exceeded my every expectation. The more I use this app the more I like it. It is just to bad I am not in the USA. In the US is where this app really shines.

It's been a solid app, won't be using it for this year's hunts for the simple fact all of my hunting partners use the other app and we can't share waypoint or anything with each other.

This does nothing. It's basically the same as Google maps. Annoying and frustrating. I'm better off using my geocaching app.

Horrible. Just wasted 40 mins of my day to make one waypoint. Registered but never could put in user\password to work. Used FB once but next time it would not go. Kept interupting back to upgrade and while i was trying to learn app. So far

Very cool app interface but needs optimization for android 12 some new phones like Samsung S22plus and ultra have multi band gnss with the new architecture of soc for example it can pull gps data from L1 and L5 giving better accuracy not a problem right now as Very few apps have been optimized for this but would love to see future support

I am not an outdoor type of person & I RARELY go into the unknown of the wilderness. I downloaded this APP as a "what if". As I write this, I'm in the Arizona Desert 4x4ing in a group, & our Physical Map is almost useless. This APP is working flawlessly keeping us on point & from getting lost & leading us to the landmarks we are seeking. If you frequent the outdoors, I would suggest this app & going PRO would no doubt help you immensely & be beneficial. 5 stars!.

Still don't have updated landowner data. They claim they use uptodate data but it's not even close. Owned my property for 6 years and it still says the owner from 10 years ago. OnX has it right why doesn't Basemap?

I bought the app and it was great except that roads on BLM land aren't shown as they are on OnX. This is a feature that is very useful in orientation on the desert BLM.

I have used the "pro" version for 4 months so far and have had not operational issue with the app. There are a few County owned parcels in my area with no ownership data, but mostly is very accurate. Aerial imagery appears to be from Google Earth, so it's not always the most up to date but is pretty good quality. It is definitely worth the price they charge and I do recommend it. The Gear Drop is also interesting and gives users a very nice carrot to chase.

So far I think this app is really cool, I spend a great deal of time in the bush so being able to map out different land areas has definitely kept me out of trouble, the off line maps is also a very useful feature. Great app and strongly recommend to hunters a d anyone who loves the outdoors

This is a app that you can appreciate as being a rockhounder. It's been the best app to use for contacting landowners and crossing there land coming out of a creek or river. I have even found it very helpful in returning cattle out of the bottom of the river.

Liked some of the advanced features. Wind calculation is nice. Seems accurate. BUT......the satellite images are atleast 5 years old here in Colorado. (Multiple locations tested) So therefore I am uninterested in paying Fer a upgrade when other services atleast have most the tools plus accurate sat images. Also doesn't have many options Fer dropped pins(deer,srand, rub, etc. )

This app needs much work to the GPS calibration. Also I payed for the pro version and after the last update, it will not let me download offline maps. Other than that there are countless layers and features.

Developer has twice removed my review. The review is not derogatory but based on factual use of the app. I purchased the pro version and immediately noticed there were several property lines that were incorrect. The landowner name was also incorrect. If you need this for property lines I wouldn't recommend.

Was better when the maps showed the property lines. Didn't care owner's name, but was nice to be able to see property lines, especially out of the cities. Would rate it much higher if property lines shown.

Imagery is ABSOLUTELY beautiful, but the icons for hunting are terrible. Their blog has an entry "Whitetail Scrape Lines: what you need to know," but the app lacks any basic useful hunting icons.... No icons for rubs, scrapes, trail, doe, buck, tracks, scat like OnX (but they do have alligator or crocodile listed under wildlife tab....why?) Would 100% purchase BaseMap instantly if they fixed this. Emailed support, with a response saying they plan to update icons, but no planned date. Please fix!

I use it for hunting in Southern Ontario, Canada. Walking through the bush it holds a GPS signal great. Two reasons the app got a 4, it's a little on the expensive side and it doesn't look like the Pro and the maps cover Canada.

BasMap is the most accurate app. I have found! On one of our hunt's we had a father and son hunting with us and On the third day of the hunt the father and son set out on a game trail to get up a little higher than the rest of us. 3hours after they left a storm set in. The fog was thick and no way to know where the 2 where!! Basemap was right on where there location was!! They had no problem gettin back to camp It was AWESOME!!!! GOOD WORK MY FRIEND'S!!!

Been using base map now. For past month. No better App that o have used or heard of. And now with the 40% off sale I can not wait to get back on my land with all my pro bundle features. Keep up the great work. And I do enjoy the extra email stories also James Williams

Subscribers beware... if you cancel your subscription you don't get a refund. It appears what you get is the subscription termination prior to your subscription renewal date. I wish someone had made that clear to me. 😒

Tech support is great. Maps are better than the competition. 3D for Android is worth it. Very easy to use once you learn yourself around somewhat. Best hunting app out there!

1) Property boundaries and images are more recent than Huntstand and OnX. 2) Has far less waypoint icons/colors than Huntstand and OnX. 3) Unable to see the saved/layer options on the bottom of the screen and those on the far right of the tools menu. 4) Maximize the screen view by moving the search, weather and topography icons to the bottom. Make it a sliding menu. Eliminate the Basemap logo. 5) Make private and public property boundaries a different and bright color. Keep roads in white.

I get push notifications but when I click on them nothing happens, the notification just goes away. I also downloaded some maps for offline use, when I was offline and in offline mode I tried opening the maps but they wouldn't fully load. I don't know why I'm paying for this app. Also struggles to load layers often.

Property boundaries are pretty close. Map resolution is good. However, the group I am hunting with are trying it out and it doesn't do a very good job of updating our locations for each other to see. Especially when we go into areas with bad cell coverage, it may take a couple hours before our locations update.

No trial version, other programs have a trial version that gives you a week to experience the pro or paid version on a new account to determine if you like it. Not BaseMap. With a lot of the features inaccessible how do I know what they look like or behave on my phone. Uninstall.

Love this app. Doesn't take long to get past the learning curve, then the real help kicks in. The downloadable maps for offline access is a help. 'Course, add those layer info graphics, and species info, you're covered! Another feature I like is the clarity of Sat map areas. Zoom right in. Start a track from your vehicle or camp, and find your way back. Nice.

I paid back in 2/2021 for the Pro subscription. I had to switched phones, the app was not working properly afterwards. So I try to contact customer service, no reply. I needed the app that I had paid for. So I ended up downloading and paying for another app.( onX Hunt ). Then when customer service does get in touch with me. They tell me I never paid for the Pro subscription.

Property boundary lines are no longer included in the free version. That was my main reason for having Basemap. Was a great app. Now, for my uses, it's mostly the same as Google Maps.

Loved it when they showed land boundaries with the free version. But they took that away and want $35 to $70 a year for it. I might do $30 for a one time fee but not each year. Works well other than that. Easy to make way points and I like the weather as well. Unfortunately they just got money hungry.

I am still learning how to use this, but so far it is a winner hands down over all others. I bought the pro version and glad I did and the new compass feature is amazing. I have been searching for an app like this for years but they have all fallen short. If you are an outdoors individual, this is the app you need...

Keeps telling me that I need to update. I click OK it takes me to Google play. It gives me 2 options first is to Uninstall second is to open. Of I click on Uninstall it tells me that my subscription will be canceled, if I click on open it go back to the screen that tells me I need to update. As of right now this app is completely unusable.

Update- a few months ago i brought up 2020 season data populating, it was spring of 2021 "we are working on it"... Today, 1 month AFTER archery season- still outdated. Emailed tech support about a week ago- same reasponse as before. WHAT OTHER DATA IS WRONG? The 1* reviews are darwin winners IMO Use it all the time. Hunting, camping, scouting, general information on all kinds of things. Particularly like it when paired with Google Earth, I can find exactly where to camp, hike, hunt, park, spot

So far the easiest most straight forward app to use. Things that could be improved are being able to remove the shading when you draw out an area and knowing how many acres are in the area you drew. Zooming in could be improved slightly but over all is out preforming the competition in most everything. This app has serious potential to be the absolute king of the hunting apps

Keeps getting better and better, I just hope they never go the heavy ad route because it slows apps down and becomes a hindrance to the point of uninstallation. As for the app itself, I love it. Been using it for a year now and know exactly where my old spot is even when I can't find it myself due to foliage growth. Haven't used the blood tracking yet but I'll be testing it next deer I'm blessed with.

That app is pretty good, but definitely needs polishing, especially the offline maps. I consistently have issues with offline maps downloading/loading incorrectly. Nothing worse than being in the backcountry for sever days and all of a sudden half your offline maps are unusable. Also, the high resolution download is the only usable resolution. Medium resolution is completely useless because the layers disappear when when you barely start zooming in. I'm disappointed in basemap now

I was enjoying BaseMap until an update that changed Free map layers to a paid subscription version. I was a frequent user of the Nation wide private ownership parcel map and it was switched to PRO. Not sure what other layers were also switched. I would think that current users would have been grandfathered in...

This is an amazing app. Being the 1st saw as a wildland firefighter we use topographical maps, and this app is about as accurate as it gets. We use the term "as a crow flies" when talking about how far away something Is and now you can see without putting the range finder on it. Thank you
Brad Hilburn
Sep 19, 2021
I think this app is a waste of time and money here's why......you launch the app and all it is was a map. Didn't have any boundaries didn't show me any blm land or hunting locations. Pretty much just a Google earth. If every mobile hunting app is just going to make me pay for boundary lines like OnX. I'll just stick to using the original OnX then, there is no point in switching to a app that is not as good as OnX and doesn't have any free features that make it stand out against the competition.

Sep 17, 2021
I tried BaseMap because they have higher resolution images compared to others but I will be switching back. Downloaded maps for offline usage have repeatedly dropped off the private/federal property layers when I needed them. When trying to navigate around, it repeatedly pulls up unit info and tries to get you to upgrade. It is deceptive about saving content locally vs uploading it to their social media environment. Various features in the app feel tedious to use. Not worth the higher resolution

I really wish I'd tried a single month rather then a year. If your going to Subscribe, go with OnX. If your only playing with the free trail version, then BaseMap is fine, but the Gov/Public highlights are so much clearer on OnX then this. Wish I wouldnt have blown the $29.99 for a year Sub.

This app was easy to use and I liked the look and graphics. Unfortunately, it didn't perform well in the field. Didnt track accurately for me or my husband. Reached out to basemaps and they chalked it up to user error. I went back to OnX. Then subscription didnt get cancelled so i reached out again and was told sub was cancelled and refunded. It was not. Still showed active in playstore. Still working to get the refund. Stick with OnX, works much better.

Edit. This was a great app. But I stopped needing to use it. And supposed to have canceled my subscription. I didn't notice it for a while but it is still charging me. And after searching through my subscription list to cancel. It is not on there. So why am I still paying 4.99 a month. And have no way to turn it off.

Horribly out of date 0n property ownership. Lived on my property for the past 10 years and still the previous owner name, neighbors still under original landowners name and has changed names twice. Hopefully I can get some use out of it otherwise just a waste of money. OnX so far the only app that has been correct. Even the sat. map is old, bought 16 acres just on the Southside of my place 4 years ago, still shows it as tilled ground not hay and wrong owner.

For some reason with a paid subscription... I assumed you could see land owner info... Which I did when first getting app.. shortly after that even though my app showed I was paid up till August 2021... The owner info info is still not available anymore... Can't seem to find a reason why?

Base map is slow loading the map and updates for land ownership are not updated. Which is my only complaints. The tech help is awsome and they always get back to you very quickly. You pay for the entire USA vs only state by state like others which I like due to I hunt other states.

every time I try to zoom in the app throws up a sample hunt data app asking me to upgrade and zooms me way out of what I am looking at. Why? this makes the map almost unusable when zooming in to look at details. Please fix this. Otherwise I like the features and hope you run a patch to fix this. thank you...it has something to do with your hunt boundaries for NM layer.

I'm not real good with technology and I have problems getting around in the App but that's my fault. When I'm able to get where I'm going I find what I'm looking for. It has helped with property lines that we thought was here but were there. Some of the owners are not right but owners change a lot but you get in the general area. I like it and just have to get a little more experience using it.

Oh man when i downloaded this app i was soo excited there is nothing else like it but as im applying layers trying to check out my local mountain range no layers were working but if i went 6 hours south to my american neighbours as soon as you got the border everything works. us canadians would eat this app up im soo upset i cant use it and will have to delete it. Please consider bring your app over the border we all hunt and fish! Hope this reaches someone who can make it happen! Cheers.

So far it's one of the better basic GPS apps. It is more geared towards sports but just for the common hiking aspects the waypoints and photos are great as well as the tracks. I've only used the free one so far.

Tried to use this during my cow elk hunt in the Beulah unit near John Day Oregon. 5.5 hour drive from home and the app didn't work in the terrain all week. Works great in the city but not so much when you really need it! Thank God for my Garmin GPS handheld unit... I think I'll be going back to OnX hunt!!!

Don't care for grid lines and I do not see any way to turn them off. As for all the other features, they might have usefulness but, without a free trial period I can not make a decision over OnX.

I like the fact that it gave me the landowners as well as a map of where I was to stay in my zone but I got rid of it because as soon as I readed it it wanted me to upgrade in order to keep functioning as it was in the beginning I'm in between jobs and cannot afford the app at this time. So I uninstalled it because it wasn't worth anything to me at that point.

Basemap is easy to set up and use. Great layer selection and my wife and friends can see where I'm at just in case I need to be found. This option is #1 for me being a older hunter.

The maps offer more detailed information than standard Google maps. Plus all the different map filters that are available. Thanks again for putting out a map system that works well. Update... GEAR DROP... 1st week gear drop location 22% closer than others, 2nd week gear drop location 40% closer than others, 3rd week gear drop location 66% closer than others, 4th week gear drop location (I'm seeing a pattern here. Gonna guess 80% closer than others) wait for the actual numbers Update: 79% closer

I really like the lay out and layers. Unfortunately it takes hours to download larger offline maps and many of the layers won't load in offline mode. When I contacted customer support for help they apologized for the issue and said I could submit a bug report.

BaseMap is 10/10 times better than any other hunting app. Youre able to compete for prizes and log every hunt you go on. It is also very affordable.

5 star atleast so far, I have loaded, and unloaded atleast 5 hunt helping apps so far, this one, is simple, easy to navigate, and they actually have alot for the basic, non upgrade one, which for me means they're fair, and I'll probably upgrade, lol. But this is by far best one I've downloaded

Not very functional compared to competitors. Very difficult to cancel subscription. Geardrop notifications are obnoxious and detract from experience. Data layers not up to date and don't show very many roads or trails in my area (Montana). Disappointment in general.

Great app for checking wind and barametric pressure. The detailed layers takes a lot of guesswork out of online scouting. The GPS has picked up my signal well so far. Worth the money for the pro version.

Not as good as others, so I have hunt wise and it gives google directions and also as links to the public lands all with one click. I would have to use multiple screens with this app to get to where we wanted to go and look up the lands to see what was there to hunt.. I will definitely be moving along from this app to another.

Way off of my location. I did the calibration of my phone not once BUT twice. And it's way off by 1000 yards. Could be a great app but I am not paying $30 bucks a year when your system can't even find where I am!! What if I got lost and hurt?? They would be searching in another county looking for me. NO THANK YOU!!! Why are you charging people when this app doesn't work.

I really wanted to like it but the app seems buggy. It repeatedly crashed when I tried to paste a value in the latitude field while placing a marker and there seems to be a glitch preventing me from deleting a marker. It disappears momentarily but it's right back there every time I restart the app. The "tracking" feature repeatedly freezes. I like the compatibility with Google earth and would definitely switch from OnX if you can work out the bugs and quit with the gear drop pop ups.

Great for the first couple .months. clear pictures. Fast. Then slows way down. One month to go and now I can't track myself. Land ownership and shows up 1 out of 5 days. My land has someone else's name on it and theirs on mine. Onyx map had it right 2 months after I bought it. That was two years ago.

Great map for public lands hunting. This directly contributed to our successful hunt. Reading the lay of the land and the wind is critical to success for spot and stalk archery hunting. BaseMap aided in both of these areas.

These maps are incorrect and do not match the legal GIS maps. I really hope people aren't relying on this app and accidentally hunt on my private property. I have emailed them to correct this mistake and I'm looking forward to confirmation very soon.

I've tried basemap for over 2 years now. Hands down onx is better so far. Basemap is slow, maps are terribly slow off line campare to onx. So if there layers are awesome but onx has them now to. Saving way points and different color icons and tracks are better on onx. Onx is unbelievably faster. If one is strictly using this for hunting and off line I would not buy this app. The gear drop pop ups are irritating as is the unit sample that pops up randomly when one selects a property to view.

Basic BaseMap okay, but for use for navigating on public lands requires the Pro version. Most reliable mapping software used so far. Really use the parcel ownership, landscape cover, roads, and trails layers. Really compromised value of BaseMap Pro when they no longer provided address information for landowners. Wish they would restore this informstion

Would be great.. unfortunately there is a pop-up for something called geardrop.. (that I couldn't care less about) that pops up over and over again.. even after I paid for this app.. forces you into a separate map.. so after following a NF road for miles into the mountains it reset me back at my location.....

Very good resource.. I have the pro version and it offers alot of overlays that help when just planning a trip or reviewing a lot size or measuring really just about any distance . I've measured approximate square footage of houses driveways I was able to export all my waypoints and tracks from Onx really no problem.. always know where I am and easy to use . Love that it has all public lands for all 50 states for 1 price. And also use the new wind option for a couple of my stands works gr8

Well worth the subscription. Love how just clicking on the weather icon gives me the best stands to hunt that day and 7 days in advance. Also marking my cameras. We run 32 cameras on 1200 acres total and I have indeed forgotten where I've put them and spent entirely too much time searching later. The layers are a huge advantage when it comes to guessing approximate bedding locations.

I mean I just started it but so far it's ok I'm still learning the details really.I do know the map images are years out of date and when i google Conservation Areas it puts you in the middle it doesn't really show the outline of the conservation land to well.As to hunt wise and on x put you at them and show the land outline vs private property near by.All in all.its worth 5 bucks a month I guess

Lacks many waypoint icons in regards to hunting. I have yet to get some of the functions to work which probably be turned on by default. Importing waypoints from OnX is a PITA. None of them import as they are in regards to symbols. Takes hours and hours editing each and every waypoint. And many can not be edited correctly because the symbols do not exist. Hope it gets better over time.

It is handy. It takes a little playing with to get your offline maps saved correctly (the layers you want, and not overlapping) but great when off grid. The ability to share your offline maps with a hunting partner would be really nice. Maybe some thing to add. If there is net work services available maybe being able to real time share information with hunting partner. But all in all great app. Plus the gear drops are a great way to learn all the layers and using the map.

Just paid for a year and this mapping program is by far so much morr complicated then OnX mapping. The share feature will only work with cell service. What good is that if you are using it off grid for hiking, hunting, fishing and so on. Before buying it you better do your research.

The free version is pretty good but the pro version doesn't really offer much of an upgrade. For example, in the pro version you can download "high resolution" offline maps. However, only the "Mapbox" layer is available for download. The main problem I have with this is that the area I am looking at (Telluride) shows snow over the entire mountain range and you can't physically see the trail (it's not like this with the Google Satellite Imagery, but you can't download Google's) . I understand this does not apply to many other areas but it is quite useless for my intended area. Another strange note on this is that when you zoom in to near 100% on the snow covered area, the snow disappears and you are given a view of the land beneath the snow. The problem here is that its so zoomed in you cant reference any of the surrounding area. Lets talk about the 3D Earth view. It is only available for OIS, but I have an Ipad from work so it kind of works for me. First, the imagery is beautiful and the trail overlay is very helpful. However, you can't download this basemap, secondly, you can't adjust the pitch very much like you can in Google Earth. It is still a very nice feature though. One benefit of the Pro upgrade is the USFS MVUM Roads layer and the ability to download it as an additional layer. I really like the ability to turn on/off layers so the screen is not too crowded. This was the main reason I did not go with OnX Offoad, because you can't turn off their layers and it is too hard to orient yourself because of all the clutter. Another nice feature (free or pro) is the trail descriptions you get when you click on a trail. Some trails even include a link to the Forrest Service website for further info. Upgrades I would like to see is Google Satellite Imagery as an offline download option, route planning as can be used in Gaia, 3D Earth for Android, a weather layer or at least a link for the area, the ability to click on a trail and have the option to download an offline map to automatically cover the area for the length of the trail. Another option to include would be to filter trails by activity such as what OnX Offroad does with their "choose your ride" feature or how the COTREX app does it. I hope this helps someone and I hope the BaseMap takes note and can use this to edge out the competition and give us a phenomenal product. Thanks for reading.

Very underwhelming, esp. on an Android device. The satellite images are not any different than what you can get for a small one time purchase on other mapping apps. The 3D viewing option is a selling point, but doesn't work on Android. I uninstalled this app after less than 1 hour. Better options exist for less money.

I am a land surveyor. This app has the parcel numbers on the owner's information. That is a great help in my business. It is a little slow and the searches don't always work right (hence 4 stars), but it is far better than its competition for my purposes.

So far I've really been enjoy Basemap. I had a few issues at first, but emailed customer service( they were spectacular!) And haven't had any issues since. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's definitely geared towards the U.S, and being in Canada, alot of the layers don't work up here.

I currently have a subscription to all of the well known map service apps. I have to say this app seems to be the most well rounded as far as features, detail, clarity, and ease of use. Also the gear drop feature is very entertaining! However there are a few features that are missing or in my opinion seem lacking. The biggest issue being you cant switch from topo to satellite via a hot button on the map screen. Seems silly but it's very annoying! Also the 3D feature leaves a lot to be desired.

So far so good. Have used onX for years now. I heard of issues in offline mode so ill try a while before letting onX go. ill be trying this weekend in the woods. Ive noticed slightly grainy resolution when zoomed way in but not too bad. The photo of my house shows a car that has been gone 2 years in my driveway. This concerns me for e scouting. But the geardrop and the layers are cool. Ill keep it and hope for fixes on those issues. I like the photo waypoints and sharing.5 stars if those get fix

Cheap price reflected in the app. Not user friendly compared to onX maps. Layer menu system is awful. No trial to see if I even like it the program with all the "pro features" like boundries. It just feels like they took google maps and rammed it into a hunting app. Also any map application that has a social media button on the main ribbon instead of a useful feature irks me to no end and gives me bad vibes for the real purpose of this app and company.

This app is actually really good, glitchy at times, but still good. The reason for the one star is because I have to login everytime I go to the app. I live in the mountains and in an area and sometimes I don't have internet (cell service). Without service I cant login even to see the saved areas. Why?! Stop the constant logging in!

I'm not trying to win any free hear, and i don't care about this junk y'all keep popping up in my phone. I really despise the fact that i can't disable these notifications, so I'm uninstalling.

The app has good functionality and a decent amount of overlays. It's a very comparable app to onxhunt however the loading time for pretty much everything is remarkably slow giving the app a clunky feel regardless of data speeds or processing power which makes many of the overlays almost unbearable or impractical to use. I need to see improvement in these areas to continue my subscription and not switch back to onxhunt.

Like the app. Does what I need to walk my property boundaries. However, I wish the gps would refresh more often, I walk several feet before it updates my position.

Incredible program with so many technical features. I use it for fly fishing, hunting, nordic skiing, trail running, and looking for property.

Great app!!!!! Absolutely one of the best GPS apps for hunting that I've tried. Loads of clear content that is easy to navigate through. The free version has plenty of data and info to make it easy to travel through woodland and get you back to camp. I can't wait to try it out on a big hunt. If the paid version is even better than the free version then this will be my go to app for any kind of activity, not only in the woods but for travel as well. Great job to the developers.

Really good and easy to use. The free features allow you to do anything you need. I don't care for the social networking feature, so I keep all my stuff marked private and ignore everything else

Excellent app. Easy to use, runs fast and is responsive whether online or offline, and has tons of layers for just about anything you could need for hiking, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, offroading, or anything else that takes you away from paved roads or cell reception. The premium subscription is well worth it and is priced very reasonably for what it provides.

Edit:. Putting back the star for the quick response from Basemap, thank you! --- Excellent app, but the land parcel ownership layer is rediculously out of date. We've owned our property for over 3 years now and Basemap still shows it as the previous owner. Knocking off one Star for that since it's the reason I paid for the app

I have to pay to follow friends, I have to choose areas to download for offline use, I find it unintuitive, and, did I mention one must pay $30/year? Now it doesn't sound like much, but start adding up all your other $30/yr subscriptions, patreons, random accounts. Getting out of control. Try Locust maps. Seems to just work.

Maps are way outdated with land owner info address'. Some info over 4 years old. Map boundaries are off on some areas, which can cause trespassing issues while hunting. Wasted $30.

On the 4th of July I'd set up a half dozen trail cams or so here in the Montana backcountry. I used another app to mark their locations. Well that app lost all the way points from that weekend. I know a few Basemap staffers and they suggested this. Not gunna the earlier versions of this app weren't very offline user friendly. But it seems they've got figured out!

issues from the gitgo. no 3d for android offline. map download freezes up in Pro mode. tried downloading just one mountain and froze at 7%. same as onx in that you have to zoom in real close to see labels and then knowing where you are at in the area is difficult to orient without zooming out and then zooming back in over and over. going to give it some time but having my doubts. no phone number for IT assistance so you are pretty much on your own.

BaseMaps is topnotch. Way to many awesome features for finding spots on a map and or navigating an area you have already found. That being said it's super easy and straight forward to use. And I like things neat and organized and when I open my areas they have a lot of cool info I've mapped but it's all neat and orderly. Great product!

This app works very well even with no service. GPS tracking is my favorite, showing elevation change and time duration. I updated right away!

OnX was causing me issues and not loading well when I needed it most. BaseMap is proving to be very useful and I like that they have fishing information as well. Can't beat paying 1/3rd the price and a better app experience

I purchased the Pro basemap. The price beats OnX maps for you get all the states vs. one state. As for the satellite map its out dated. I live in North Idaho and i've noticed that the land ownership map is not accurate. It shows the wrong landowners on various properties and on some no info at all. I did not have that problem with OnX maps. This app has potential if they fix those bugs. Its a little on the slow side but I hope they will eventually get this app. dialed in.

You get what you pay for. I signed up for pro after reading about the options. Pricing compares well to othe map subscriptions like Gaia. To those idiotic 1 star reviews - A. Free isn't really free in any app. You trade your privacy and user experience for ads, B. All software is moving to the utility subscription model. Get used to it. There are many pros to that model.

if you are an onx user but always feel like it's lacking depth and control then look no further, this is the app for you at a fraction of the cost. first thing i noticed was the ability to actually zoom all the way in like G Earth. basemap customer support and engagement is awesome! I've emailed ideas and little tweaks that i feel can really make this app shine and they've been happy to receive it. i really believe they want to provide the most useful mapping solution to outdoorsmen and women.

I tried out several other apps before settling on this one. The UI isn't cluttered, and the different map layers are great, I actually found a hiking trail near my home that I wasn't aware of while fiddling with the different layers. I look forward to trying this app in the field once the weather turns nicer, and as of now, I am planning on subscribing if it works well.

i hoped for one thing when i saw this app, i hoped it would have icons for bedding areas, scrapes, rubs, oak trees, and other things deer hunters mark in the woods.... this is the same as OnX maps... if the makers of this app want to beat onX they need a whitetail hunters inputmon the icons they choose for the waypoints

I split time using this app as well as a competing maps app last fall while hunting. I am very impressed with Basemap's crisp map imaging and it seemed to be spot on with GPS location, even without having cell service. I do need to play around with the app more because I felt like I needed to re-learn some of the menu options. Overall, I am happy with the app, just felt hung up trying to find what I needed. Will tell people to give it a try because it is cheaper than other options

This is a great way to accurately track your miles, elevation changes, and find your way back to where you started. It eliminates the need for a GPS. Not to mention BaseMap continues to improve their content, add additional features and still remains my #1 choice in mapping apps.

got basemap just before elk season and found it easy to use and loaded w lots of features.very accurate in my heavily treed area,and interestingly enough it loaded much faster than onyx maps which I had been using and being clear and on the money when onyx couldn't even get a signal.great app!!!

I tried BaseMap this last hunting season for the first time. I was very pleased with all aspects of what I used. It clearly gave me contact info for private land I saw elk on, was able to make contact, and got my dad his first elk! I also discovered multiple parcels of BLM land that were marked with no hunting signs that should not have been there. I went to BLM showed them on my app and they have since taken care of it. Great app, plan on reupping my subscription.

Used in AK on moose hunt, very usefull. This app is way better than my Garmin rhino. This app is going with me to Idaho Elk, already downloaded maps and studying hunt plans. The app is only getting better. Had my hunting partner download so we can track each other. Highly recommend if you need to see where you are and plan your hunt. This app is cheaper than replacing my Garmin every 4 or 5 years as it seems to bug out or break. If you need radio, get cobra. work better than my Garmin rhino.

I have been using this app for over a month now and find it very useful. It helps me find the suitable areas of terrain to explore and plan my activities. One of the features in the app I really like is that it is so convenient to look up who owns the property so that you can contact the owner for permission to hunt on their property. The load time of the layers is very quick (something I have struggled with the other apps I have used in the past). It works great in the offline mode which is really helpful for the areas that have less or no network connectivity. There are so many layers offered in the app based that you don't have to manage different apps for different activities. It is a one stop shop for someone like me who loves outdoors. I highly recommend this app!

Good app very accurate with good maps very helpful for people that like to go out into the wilderness for camping, fishing, panning, hunting etc. It would be nice to download larger maps if you have the spacr.

I have been looking for an app like this for months, and thought I finally found a good one. Boy, was I wrong!! The one feature I need and want the most is it to be able to have the WMA areas active while I'm in the woods hunting so as to make sure I'm not traveling outside the proper hunting area, or onto private property. Sure the app is free, but nothing else is. What good is it to have an app that doesn't even work, unless you are a rich person and can afford to purchase the features of a fee app? #PoorPeopleDontMatter

Awesome app! Have used it on several hunts where I had spotty phone service or no service at all. Used the cached map feature and it worked perfectly. Had Google imagery, USGS topo maps, public land, and private land layers all offline. No hangups or glitches. Couldn't be happier with it. I'm in the app all the time scouting for new areas. So many different data layers..its awesome! Have hunting buddies that use a competing app and after seeing me use Basemap, they are switching. Definitely get way more for your money compared to the competition. Thank you Basemap for putting out a great product.

I purchased basemap about 2 months ago, have to say I'm very impressed with all the features basemap provides. Being able to share locations with friends is a critical advantage. I use it nonstop to scout new areas and also to help me learn about areas that I already know even better. One thing to consider before you form an opinion is to make sure you have your phone in the right settings before you get frustrated. I had a couple issues that i couldn't figure out on my own so i called and Jeff walked me through it step by step and now it works perfectly. I highly recommend this app to anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors!

I have been a OnX user for the past few years and after giving BaseMap a try I have gone all in. BaseMap truly has it all! If you hunt, fish, hike, trap or are just a general outdoors person BaseMap is a must.

If I'm being honest this app has everything you could want if your a person that spends time in the outdoors. I've been using this app for around 6 months now and have loved it. Whether your a hunter, fisherman, hiker, trailrunner, or even rockclimber this app has you covered.
