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 use this app for hunting, hiking and for all around outdoor stuff. I really do like that I can take a picture of a field, waterfall or place where I have been and have that area marked to return to it in the future to show my family and friends the exact same spot.

    I have a lot to learn about the functionality, but so far it's impressive. I'll leave another comment later.

    Great app, the accuracy has improved greatly and speed. It's not draining my battery as much now either. Still a few minor features that could be added when tracking hence a 4 star revue. I love being able to use all of my old map files like memory map .qct please never change this function. Well done for developing as I've not found anything else recently comparable.
