Ordnance Survey maps for the UK

Post by KeithL » Wed Sep 08, 2021 3:19 pm

With the demise of Viewranger due to it's takeover by the abysmal Outdoor Active app I started looking for a replacement and came across AlpineQuest which in my opinion is by far the best mapping app available.

I have the pro version and have been using it with some old QCT maps, these work great but they are more than 15 years out of date.

I am quite willing to pay for the latest OS mapping either outright or as a subscription.

Do you have any plans to make this available in AlpineQuest ?

I am sure the thousands of disgruntled users of Viewranger would find AlpineQuest a worthy or even better replacement.

Hi,
Right now unfortunately we don't have the ability to offer descent OS maps.
The OS make it almost impossible for small developers to offer this ability.

I can download OS Maps for offline use, but how do I get Alpine Quest to read them? When I used Memory Map maps previously,
Alpine Quest would move smoothly from one map to the adjacent one, how do I do this using my downloaded OS Maps.

If you're talking about stored maps by AlpineQuest, there is nothing to do the application will automatically use stored data when possible.
