If you're not using your smartphone to navigate, you're really missing out! Paper maps are always a great thing to have on you as a backup, but mobile mapping applications are where it's at. So much information can be carried with you on your mobile device that you'll be glad you paid whatever it costs to access the information.
Hunters and hikers alike can benefit from these mobile applications!
Check out both of these apps to see which one best suits your needs.
- onX Maps was built for hunters traveling off trail who need to know where they're going and what land they're accessing. This mobile app works offline when not connected to a cell tower and uses the GPS of your smartphone to accurately show your location. It has an incredible user interface with layers galore. If you're a hunter, you'll want to download this application!

- Gaia GPS is one of the original applications for smartphones. It has a great user interface and is directed more towards hikers. They do have hunting information included as well though! I've used Gaia for years with great success!
