AlpineQuest GPS Hiking 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.

    Chocked full of features and pretty good UI. It's not perfect, there are a few UI issues but everything else makes up for it.

    This is a great app and we'll worth the cost for offline tracking.

    The only feature request I can think of is the ability to edit (cut) tracks after tracking is over.

    This is a really great app. I download the maps of the destination area and when I get there I turn of everything except the GPS. With the above setup (and an Otterbox of course) the battery lasts for days
