Instructions for downloading and installing your Mobile Hunting Map in to your devices

We have outlined below a step-by-step procedure to download and install the map data file into up to three of your devices.  The Mobile Hunting Maps require the CarryMap app to be installed on your device.  The 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.

In general, these instructions apply to most devices, but dependent on the version of the operating system software
and age of your device, they may vary.  For example, an iPhone 7 is different than an iPhone 11 pro. 

 Good internet service is needed for the “one time” download of the map data per device.
Do not use a cell signal or cell
WiFi hotspot.  Download will be extremely slow and subject to disruption.
Once loaded, the map can be read without WIFI or cell service

First: Make sure you have updated your device’s operating system to the most current version.  The app may not function properly on outdated systems.

Second: Download the CarryMap app to your device.  Make sure you have the most current version.   You must have the app to use the Mobile Hunting  Map. Dependent on your device, click on the button below to  access the app.

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.

On IOS 12.0 or newer, a blue circle with a down pointing arrow inside will appear and a tiny blue line will move from left to right just under the circle as the download is in progress.  Be patient as some of the map data files are large.  Dependent on your internet speed and your WIFI strength, the download can take several minutes.  Do not try to download a file using a cell phone service, more than likely it will drop before the download is complete.
