Is the OnX issue fixed? I know a lot of people lost their data when they updated their maps, I need to update mine but don't intend on losing my way points. Any insight is appreciated, thank you.

After using Onx and Gaia, Gaia is much better overall and you get all 50 states for $29.99.

Is Gaia compatible with a garmin gps?

So I was checking out the Gaia website, seems you need the $59 premium membership to get the hunting map overlay which shows public and private land?

If you are still in version 3 of the onX Hunt app (the icon would be orange with a pair of deer antlers and a hunter in the background) all you need to do is sync up your content before updating. Press on the 3 line menu button in the upper left hand corner, then press My Content, then go into each of those subfolders (markups, tracks, photos) and press the cloud icon. After that, it manually syncs all your waypoints, tracks, etc to your account. Then when you update and log in with version 4 (the red square with a white X in it), your content will come right up for you. If you are already in version 4 and wondering about any of the minor updates we release, there will no issues with losing any content.

Also if you only need the information for a single state, (public land, private land, hunting units, public hunting or walk in areas for that state as well as all the nationwide layers) you can do the Premium membership for $29.99/year. @ohiohunter If you are looking to update a chip, the map information that is on the Hunt Chip is separate from the waypoints, tracks, markups, etc on your GPS unit so updating the chip would not affect any of that

Truthfully I have no idea what version, I rarely connect to the computer and even more rarely do I open the website.. heck, now I have to find my cord. Whenever I access maps on the comp its straight to basecamp.

Sounds good. So you are working with the Hunt Chip which again, updating that Hunt Chip will not affect your waypoints on your GPS unit. Here is a tutorial on how to update your Hunt Chip https://onxmapssupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006042148-Updating-your-Hunt-Chip-on-Windows-PC

PECO - from the App Store I only paid $29.99 for the premium with all the additional layers. Haven’t heard of a price increase.

No, I didn't purchase the chip. All maps were downloaded and loaded to device.

Ok I see the diff, the $29.99 is for mobile app access only but it does have all the layers or at least mine does.

From: Dotman

Oh I see, if it is one of our download products from before we can replace those with an updated Hunt chip as the downloads are no longer available. Feel free to contact our customer support team help@onxmaps.com and we can look up your account and get everything sorted out for you
