OnX and cell phone battery longevity

Recommended Posts

For you guys who use OnX in the field... does your phone battery make it through the day?  If not, how long does it last you?

I make it through the day just fine. Airplane mode and battery saver.

yeah, if it's not looking for wifi or towers, mine lasts all day easily

Thanks. I’ll play around with airplane mode. Took a long hike yesterday to scout cover & try it out & it seemed to drain pretty quick.

I find, if you want to log your track, that the battery goes too quick. I also find it doesn't work as well as a dedicated GPS for track logging. Invaluable for air photo use and such. There's never a perfect solution.  I still carry a compass.

I carry a battery charging pack if Im a ways from the truck

I dont leave OnX on all the time. Just check it when needed and then double close it out
