AlpineQuest GPS Hiking


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.

User reviews of AlpineQuest GPS Hiking
My favourite app for cycling route finding, and the off-line mapping is excellent too for when I get out in the sticks. I reviewed this and said that you couldn't view a route without the waypoint names getting in the way - I was wrong, you can!

excellent app, decided to buy the real version after using the free version in NZ for 5 weeks.

This is the best of its kind out there @ the moment.

This is an excellent application. On my HTC Desire it quickly locates my position and shows it on a map that I have stored on the SD card. The market is full of applications like this, but most download the maps from the Internet, rendering them useless in the countryside where there is often no mobile phone signal at all. This application stores the maps locally bypassing this problem. You can even import GPS tracks from walking websites and follow paths that others have already taken. Highly recommended.

Works great on my HTC desire. Prefer this on Android over Garmin XT on S60. Map importing works great from the desktop app which not only works from Win, but also from Mac and Linux

A Little Early, but Great So Far I have a lot to learn about the functionality, but so far it's impressive. I'll leave another comment later.

Very nice! By far the most full featured GPS app designed for the serious outdoorsperson, most likely BY a serious outdoorsperson. It's like having a top-of-the-line Garmin, Delorme, and smartphone all rolled into one. Take it from someone who has all three and spent most of his life as a professional outdoors guide. Everything you need, without the fluff and bloat of the others. Nice work! Update: the more I use AQ, the more I love it! Man this app does everything and does it well. 6 stars for psyberia!

Route Tracking 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.
