Presentation

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© 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…

AlpineQuest is available for all Android powered devices (including mobiles, laptops and tablets).

Version 1.4.14b is available! (release note)

Maps stay available, always.

AlpineQuest can use file based maps stored on your SD memory card, available even in non-networked areas.

You can also display maps from online websites when an Internet access is available. All the data is automatically stored locally for offline use.

Maps are fast to display, no more dependence to the network signal quality, downloaded data volume is drastically reduced.

The map can be oriented according to the North (using the magnetic sensor), and you can be located on them (using the GPS chip).

You can create your own file based offline maps using the free Mobile Atlas Creator software. It allows you to create maps on your PC using your high speed home Internet access.
