AlpineQuest GPS Hiking (Lite)

AlpineQuest GPS Hiking (Lite)


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.

Wow! Now that I have actually used this great app on my Samsung S3, I have signed back in to review and recommend it. I downloaded it today, tinkered with the simple interface setup buttons, chose maps, chose offline, set a couple landmark icons, and logged out. A couple hours later, I tried the app on a small island I had landmarked 47 miles away in a large convoluted lake (Fontana). Having paid for and tried Backcountry Navigator Pro GPS a few weeks ago, I found the AlpineQuest GPS Lite free program to be much easier to use, and to have plenty of power to show location, altitude, real time compass screen orientation, and tracking on real usable maps in the wild completely offline. Nuff said? Get this great free app.
