Might anyone know if there are there any rangefinders that can sync with your GoHunt or OnX mapping software on your mobile phone? (Similar to Sig's BDX technology with BaseMap)

What features are you wanting? “Sync with” I feel is too broad.

Similar to Sig's BDX technology with BaseMap, in that you can drop a waypoint on the map of what you ranged.
This could be handy for putting on a stalk to an animal and could assist in retrieving an animal after the shot at several hundred yards in the mountains.

I do not know about what you ask, but the "poor mans" version is to use rangefinder for distance, use your GPS app for bearing, then draw a line to that distance and set a waypoint. I guess it could be off by a bit in steep terrain if GPS uses ground distance vs. rangefinder straight line distance.

That is exactly what SIG and BaseMaps functionality does.
Just range the item, press a button, and it drops a waypoint in the BaseMap application.

Following this as well--Leica and Sig work with basemaps--are their any range finder products compatible with ONX?

I recently tried the Sig/Basemap feature and really like it. I have been an OnX user for years and never really gave Basemap a look. It is actually a really nice app. I'll probablly keep it but do not think I'll be ditching OnX.
