I'm a big fan of AlpineQuest and I use it a lot for hiking! It's great!
My old Garmin GPS is no longer being used, it is much easier to put my smartphone in flight mode to save batteries, and use my smartphone with a big high resolution color screen as a hiking GPS
Like many users here I think, I used to be a Garmin GPS user, and therefore I still use the Mapsource application on my windows PC to plan hiking tours. I mostly create routes in mapsource with OSM maps, and save these routes or tracks as a GPX file on my smartphone.
Then I open the GPX files in AlpineQuest and the hiking fun can begin.
Some of you will maybe create routes directly in AlpineQuest, or on an android tablet, but personally I still prefer my PC or laptop with a classic mouse to create routes and GPX files.
Now, there is my question: I'm looking for an application on windows that could replace my old mapsource and is able to use online OSM maps like the wonderfull OSM maps from Thunderforest (if you don't know these maps yet, start using them because they really are the best for hiking).
So, is somebody here using a windows application to create GPX files, AND is that application capable of using online thunderforest hiking maps (http://www.thunderforest.com/
If so, I would like to know which application that is, and how to use (install) the thunderforest maps... (maybe a link to another forum discussion or wathever...).
I also contacted Thunderforest for more info, but unfortunately I didn't receive much info from them.
Thanks in advance to anyone who could help me on this!
