AlpineQuest Lite is the free 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.

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, use it right now for free!

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 wanted to like this and it seems ot have a ton of cool features, but as someone mentioned, this does not work offline for free. Someone said it does. When trying ot save maps, it clear says this is not available in the free version.

    Please do not rate 1,2,3 or post comments if you do not know how to use it. This app works flawless, just create offline maps (like it says in description) and you're ready to go. I use it on Xperia S and U

    I like having the maps from the US Geological Survey. Unfortunately AlpineQuest requires an Internet connection to tell where you are. I was in a national park with no cell service or wifi and with my GPS functioning. Other apps could tell where I was by my GPS signal. AlpineQuest could not.
