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.

PLEASE report suggestions and issues on our dedicated forum: http://www.alpinequest.net/forum (no registration needed, all questions answered).

    Sd card map save no longer works(other apps have updated this). The work around does not work and is overly complicated. Edit. Have found a way around the sd card hassle, look on the forum re rated to 4 star.

    Great for hiking, canoeing, or any outdoor adventure where you may not have data coverage.

    This works so well for hiking. My only complaint is that the UI could be improved to make it more obvious how to add and remove GPX routes. Other than that, it is perfect!

    The barometer turns on, but deactivates as soon as the config screen is exited.
