AlpineQuest is the complete solution for all outdoor activities and sports, including hiking, running, trailing, hunting, sailing, geocaching, off-road navigation and much more.

You can access and store locally a large range of on-line topographic maps, which will remain available even while being out of cell coverage. AlpineQuest also supports on-board file based maps, like MemoryMap(c) maps.

By using the GPS and the magnetic sensor of your device (with compass display), getting lost is part of the past: you are localized in real-time on the map, which can also be oriented to match where you are looking at.

Save and retrieve landmarks, share them with your friends. Track your path, get advanced statistics and interactive graphics. You won't have anymore questions about what you can accomplish.

By staying fully operational out of cell coverage (as often in mountain or abroad), AlpineQuest assists you in all your desires of deep wilderness exploring...

Don't hesitate, try the free Lite version right now!

Note: IGN Top25(c) and OSGB Explorer(c) maps are available in the old MemoryMap(c) QCT format, but NOT included with the application.

    I have been using this app as a back country route tracker and it has rocked. You can record your trips and do a little planning ahead if time. A well made app. Worth what I paid for it.

    A little difficult to find some of the hidden functions but really good when you fully get to grips with it.

    Some minor annoyances like auto centre at inappropriate times and notification noises i cant find the disable switch for but no complaints really. Works well offline as well.

    An intelligently designed and useful tool for off the grid (no cell tower reception) navigation. Great for biking, skiing, climbing, and hiking. Highly recommended.
