About this app


E-walk allows you to find your next outdoor activity, plan it, and record it. E-walk is the perfect companion for outdoors activities (such as hiking, trekking, biking, fishing, hunting, etc...) and for traveling abroad, because you can fully use it offline.

Lost in a forest? E-walk brings you back to your car. Forgot about where was this lovely boutique you noticed last year in Venice? E-walk refreshes your memory!


• worldwide high resolution topographic map (E-walk Topo Map), designed for hiking and outdoors activities
• find your next adventure among thousand routes, download them for offline use and share yours (requires a free E-walk account)
• full integration of IGNrando' (https://ignrando.fr): browse IGNrando' routes on the map, sync your IGNrando' content, upload routes to IGNrando' (requires a free IGNrando' account)
• download maps for later offline use (free for OpenStreetMap and Wikimedia Maps, with subscription for E-walk Topo Map)
• show your current location on the map
• search places (last searches are saved for offline use)
• record your hikes
• select different base maps (streets, satellite, terrain, etc...)
• plan your hikes by creating and editing KML files on the map. A KML file can contains markers, lines & polygons


• organize your hikes in folders & subfolders
• display overlay maps (weather, roads, metro/bus, ski slopes, sea map, etc...)
• share your position via e-mail or SMS
• open a position in your other geo apps (such as Google Maps, Waze, TomTom, Sygic, Locus, Orux, MyTrails, etc...)
• share a hike by e-mail, bluetooth, etc... Either in KML file format (by default) or in GPX file format
• import GPX files (they will be converted in KMZ format)
• add custom maps in the XYZ protocol (see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Slippy_map_tilenames)
• add custom maps in the WMS protocol


E-walk has already a lot of features for free. But you can buy E-walk Plus to add the following:
• remove the ads
• have a scale on the map
• store your data on your SD card
• save / restore your data
• support E-walk's development


E-walk Max unlocks all features of the app (excluding IGN Maps plugin). You can try it for free during 3 days. It includes all the advantages of E-walk Plus, and the following:
• download E-walk Topo Map for offline use
• pause your hikes recordings


The IGN maps plugin (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.at.ewalk.plugin.ign) adds maps provided by the french national institute of geographical and forestry information (http://www.ign.fr).

Had used the free version and found it worthy of paying for the full version. Very useful to have detailed off-line maps for your walks. Couple of requests - could you somehow show on a zoomed out map the areas you already have downloaded? Drawing a trek in advance is not easy on the app, I end up just putting in a number of pushpins to aim for. Could the app (using the phone's compass) then show you the right direction to the next waypoint/pushpin?

Hi Jon, Showing all offline maps footprints is on my todo list but the priority is low. You can however use the "Zoom to offline map" feature from the main screen's overflow menu. Using the "None" base map source, you'll then see the bounds of that map I'm not sure to understand your 2nd request, please contact me at contact@ewalk.app for more help

Absolutely excellent for hiking in France (and probably elsewhere, but France is where I use it, having subscribed to the topographical maps of the IGN). I don't leave home without it. It is not overloaded with options and functionalities, but it is good at what it does: guiding you when you are on the trail. Seamlessly integrated with ignrando.fr for planning your trek. On top of that, the author is extremely reactive and helpful. It is a world from the anonymous support of megacompanies.

Powerful little app. Have been using for a few years now. Reliable and stable with a plethora of different maps to choose from. I use this to explore FSR's and the map choices are pretty accurate with the ever changing forest service roads. Very fast and helpful service if I have questions.
