Directions for installing your Mobile Hunting Map

Scout-N-Hunt Maps compatible with IOS, Android, and Windows device

We have outlined a step-by-step procedure to download and install your map data file into up to three of your devices. The Mobile Hunting Maps require the CarryMap app to be installed on your device. If you already have the CarryMap app installed on your device, double check to make sure you have the most current version.  Both the iOS and Android versions are 5.5  and were released in August, 2020. In general, these instructions apply to most devices, but they may vary depending on the version of your operating system software and/or age of your device. For example, an iPhone 7 is different than an iPhone 11 pro. Also, the CarryMap app is not compatible with an Apple computer or laptop, but is compatible with an iPhone or iPad with iOS version 10.0 or higher.
