Tonto ohv user map
frequently asked questions

Does the map work offline?

Yes.  Once the map is downloaded to the phone or tablet, it does not require a cellular or Wi-Fi connection to work.

Can I use this map with my Garmin or other GPS unit?

No.  This map is only available for use with the Field Maps app running on an Apple or Andorid phone or tablet.

Are all Tonto OHV routes shown on the map?

Not at this time.  Most of the open OHV routes are currently shown on the map but there are some routes where the electronic data and the actual location of the route do not match well enough.  These are not currently shown and will be added at a later date after resolution of the issues with the Tonto National Forest.

Why do some routes not have numbers?

Some routes were just added to the system recently and have not been assigned numbers yet.  Route numbers will be added when they have been assigned.  All routes shown on the map are currently designated as open.

Is there a paper version of this map?

No, not at this time.  A paper version may be made available in the future but for now, the map will be undergoing regular updates and additions of information which are difficult to keep up with on a paper map.

Will additional features be added to the Field Maps app?

The Field Maps app is a product of ESRI and is used as is for the delivery of Tonto OHV map information.  Any updates to the app are solely at the discretion of ESRI.  

Will there be updates to the map information?

Yes!  The Tonto OHV User Map project is about continual updates of information, ongoing accuracy improvement and additions of helpful, fun and interesting content.  Check for map updates regularly.

Why does the map content have an expiration date?

The maps are set to expire on a regular basis to help make sure that all users have the latest version.  A new version of the map will always be made available before the current map expires.  An expired map will still work but will warn the user to update the map when convenient.
