Cabela’s Recon Hunt is the first mobile navigation app built solely for hunters. With Recon Hunt, you can find hunting spots on detailed maps, track wildlife, take trophy photos and backtrack home. Recon Hunt also tracks other essentials as well: weather forecasts, sun and moon phases, trip stats and ballistics information. Our power saver technology monitors how you use the app in order to preserve battery power. Plus, Recon Hunt works in remote places without the need of data and cellular signals.

• Recon Hunt uses the GPS built into your iPhone to track your location with GPS satellites. No data or phone signal is needed to see your current location or to mark points.
• View unlimited topographic maps in the United States and Canada. Topo maps are 1:24K scale in the Lower 48, 1:63K in Alaska, and 1:50K in Canada.
• Consult street maps, terrain maps, and satellite photos for more info.
• Store up to 500MB of map quads on your iPhone for offline viewing and fast load times in the field.

• Follow your track on seamless maps. Zoom in, zoom out. Know where you are at all times.
• Navigate with the digital compass. Choose between: Magnetic North and True North. (Note: Magnetic Compass only works on iPhone 3GS and 4)
• Use the Goto feature to navigate from your current location to a saved or manually entered coordinate.

• Mark waypoints of your favorite (or secret) spots like a hunting blind, treestand, game trails or where you parked your truck.
• Record unlimited tracks. See where and how far you have traveled.
