Hi Ilario,
Unfortunately those maps seems not to work anymore right now, so I've removed them from the list.
You can select the "Open topo map" in the builtin maps, or add the "OSM Thunderforest maps".
Best regards

Hi, may I ask if you have any news about KOMPASS map? Here in the Dolomites it is very useful. I am using it in my old phone and it works ok. I have a second phone I want to use for trekking, and I have bought a second copy of AlpinQuest just in order to use this map. Could we have it available again? Thank you!

Hi,
My favourite map is/was open topo. On holliday hiking in the sächsisch schweitz (search for Rathen Germany) for the first time open topo was insufficient. Apperently that area is difficult to catch in a map. Just have a look at it.
I then swiched to sk map.
SK map display coïncided with reality. Easy navigating. That was a huge improvement.
The people from sk maps keep on adding new maps.
The one I used then did download quick. Open topo is a bit slow in downloading now. Could you in search for a replacement for kompas use sk map when hiking then write a review about sk maps for the dolomites?? I am curious what other peoples experiences are. Have to say open topo is brilliant too most of the time and is for all over the world.
Friendly greetings
Jos

Hi,
In the community maps list, just select the maps called "Germany Maps".

Awesome, thank you! All solved.

Anyway, before reading your answer, I managed to transfer the map via pc:
I copied the "maps" folder from the first phone (storage/android/data/psyberia.../files/datastore/maps) and pasted it into a folder in the second phone (storage/android/media/psyberia...); then I added the map as a "file based map". Worked fine. This is a gorgeous app, thank you very much.

Hi there,

is it possible, that the compass maps now ar no longer working or offered? I would find that extremely sad! Exactly these maps were one of the main reasons because of which I still used AlpineQuest so gladly ...

Best Regards
Martin

Regarding the fact that Kompass maps are no longer available, could this be linked to a licensing fee problem?
Given the importance of Kompass maps, the only real professional for safe mountain excursions, it maybe needs a periodical subscription.
In any case, it's of paramount importance to restore the functionality of Kompass maps. This app in the full version is awesome, but without Kompass maps, it looses a great part of its incredible potential.
