AlpineQuest – Track your path

[App] AlpineQuest GPS Hiking changed to AlpineQuest Explorer Lite

AlpineQuestAlpineQuest 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 many on-board file-based raster map formats.

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 unlimited placemarks, 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…

AlpineQuest user reviews :

Fantastic app. I am hopeless in reading maps but feel safe to walk wherever I want as I can always find my way back. Happy to have it

A useful App for working in a remote environment in which there are few maps and communication is often difficult.

It is still a very good app. However, in recent updates of the free version the isohypse lines have disappeared! For anyone wishing to have a feel of the environment on the flat map this information is apsolutely crucial. It is indispensable if one is using the app for actual walking. This app should remain a walkers’ app. Google maps are for those who are content with a virtual helper saying ‘turn left after….’, ‘turn right at..’. A true walker reads a map on her/his own. Thank you

This is perhaps the best app for a hiker available in the market. I only found one problem during navigation. If the screen turns off for about 10 seconds, and you turn it on again, the GPS freezes in the last position. That is rather annoying. I tried letting work in the background, auto on, remove the battery saver. I could not solve the problem. Could it be possible to adapt the program in such a way that if the GPS slider is active, the program reactivates the GPS any time the screen is on?

I found this app while looking for a replacement for Viewranger, which I’ve been using for many years. It is the best outdoor navigation app for Android bar none. Small, fast, and with an interface that is obviously designed by people that use it outdoors in anger on a daily basis. Highly recommended and the Pro version is well worth your money.
