How to View Hunting Maps on Mobile Device

How to View Offline Hunting Maps in the Trimble Outdoors app

Every year our cartographers gather details from state wildlife agencies for more than 1,200 hunt unit/GMU borders in 11 Western states (AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY). We release hunting map updates in June, so hunters can begin to scout lands and prepare for the upcoming season. Note: Our 2015 hunting map updates went live on June 10, 2015.

Once installed on your mobile device, you can view these hunting maps, see your GPS location, and navigate with confidence even when you venture out of network. No cell or data signals are required. That’s correct: No ATT, Verizon, or Sprint signals are required to use our technology.

Here’s how to install hunt units on your mobile device:
• Launch the Trimble Outdoors app.

• From the Main Menu, go to Off-The-Grid Maps > Purchased tab.


• Go to the State you want then select Hunt Units to see a full list.  For example: Colorado > Hunt Units. You'll see 287 hunt units listed for Colorado.

• Download a hunt unit. This download includes the hunt unit border, topo basemaps, public land overlays and, if you are a Platinum member, private land overlays. Tip: Connect to WiFi for faster download times.

• Once installed, click the View button to go to the Maps screen 

• On the Map screen you can view the boundary of the hunt unit. The maps in this area are also stored on your mobile device, so you can view them anywhere. No cell towers required. Pretty sweet, huh!?

• Pinch the Map screen to zoom into the topo map for more details. In the field, you will also see your GPS location (blue dot) on these maps, mark waypoints, collect tracks and much more. To turn off the hunt unit boundary, hit the Layers button, select Custom Overlay, then choose None.

Tip: Not sure if your GPS location is inside or outside the bounds of the hunt unit? No problem. Hit the small box in the lower left corner to add shading to the hunt unit area.

Tip: Zoom into the map and analyze hunt unit borders to find edge areas that other hunters might overlook because they are using less-detailed maps. You can view topo maps in 18 zoom levels.
