US: Hunting GPS Maps has announced the launch of HUNT App for iOS devices. The new app will turn an iPhone or iPad into a GPS unit that displays the users location relative to public and private property boundaries, hunting unit boundaries, and it also displays land-owner names–all layered over aerial imagery or topo basemaps. Easily plan hunts, access public and private lands, cache maps, and make waypoints right on the mobile device.
HUNT app users can subscribe to hunting-specific layers state-by-state. Layers included with the subscription include:
Government and Public Lands to easily determine user position in relation to public lands
Land-owner names with property boundaries, makes it easy to ask for land-owner permission or see private land
boundaries while out in the field
Game Management Units (GMU’s) or Hunting Units for as many different species and special hunt types as we can find available for that state
Section Lines and Numbers
Cache Basemaps and other subscription layers for use when beyond cell phone coverage
The HUNT App also has a state-of-the-art map caching feature that allows users to store maps for use outside of service areas. Basemaps and the subscription layers can be cached before the hunt to allow access to maps while outside of cell service. Easily swap out cached maps for any area depending on the destination.
