Im interested in this US Topo Maps Pro, but I use IOS devices. Cant seem to find it in Apple App store. So it shows private land? And does it show who the owner is like OnX Maps does?

iOS was the dominant os for quite a while and the majority of apps were developed on it. Today, iOS is now fallen below 18% of the market place (and falling), with Android being over 81% followed by Microsoft. With that and the absolutely asinine requirements Apple enforces an app to conform to for iOS release, most developers are now choosing to skip iOS for their new apps. Its just not worth the time investment vs money returned. Sorry iOS fans.

As for property ownership maps, all of this can be had in many different ways. I never hunt an area that I haven't already scoured or researched prior to hunting. In the field, I either already know who owns XYZ, or I dont care, meaning I only want to know public vs not public. Having that functionality in the app itself is irrelevant, I use other tools on my home PC to find names of property info (county recorders office... its usually way way more accurate than OnX).

US Topo maps allows you to turn on many different map types. If you want to manually download a map from your recorders office you should be able to import and load it, but you would have to manage that manually.

I used the ONX phone app extensively on hunts in Utah and Wyoming last year. I had zero issues with it. I know there have been issues in the past, but it served me very well and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone.

I'll second Dallan on the US Topo Maps Pro... I have been using it for years as well (I bought it back when it was $3.99) and I'm not very technologically savvy so I've yet to even scratch the surface with the mapping capabilities.

Heck, I didn't even know it had the ownership maps until Dallan mentioned something on another thread about this a while back... and I've not tried importing KML stuff into it yet.

It's worth the $11.

OnX was awesome for me for all the testing I did with it getting familiar in the months leading up to my hunt. Opening day of my hunt in a area of WY with complicated landowner boundrys, it puked. I only got blank screens, none of my cached maps would come through. After screwing around with it for too long, I turned it off, dug out the paper maps and did it the old way.

YMMV.

That sucks really bad. Im not doubting you at all, i just didnt have the same experience.

I relied on it heavily. The unit I was hunting in wyoming is one that is listed as difficult public access. No fences to delineate public and private, and the outfitter patrolled the private religiously making sure no one was setting foot on it. Without it I would have been screwed.
