Although a nice app, the user interface has some shortcomings that contribute to a steep learning curve. 1. When you enter a route or set of waypoints, or change some settings, you have to restart the app to see results. 2. Editing of coordinates is unwieldy. Besides, coordinates are always rounded down.
Just what I needed to plan walks & stop myself from getting lost while out. I can read OS maps create & track routes. Previously used Memory Mapping, but prefer this App.
This has been my track logging app for past couple of years. The full version is well worth the purchase price. It has great full-feature management of landmarks. One thing I'd like to see is the ability to tap on a track point and see the distance from start; currently it gives everything else (coordinates, elevation, time, etc.) when you do that, so hopefully it would be easy to add that. This would make it easy to monitor how far one has been traveling. To supplement this missing feature, currently I am running GeoTracker alongside AlpineQuest anytime I want to be able to measure walking distances.
I've used plenty of apps for hiking and this is by far the best. It has loads of maps you can choose from and hundreds of features. It's only downside is it can get tricky to remember where to find lesser used features in the menus
Brilliant App which does just as much as a stand alone GPS Unit at a fraction of the cost. I run this on my 7 inch Tablet and would not be without it on my ventures into the mountains. Going to Austria shortly and have already plotted routes using the free community maps. Keep up the great work guys.
My biggest problem is that I can only get the add waypoint screen to come up about 30% of the time. Very frustrating when you want to add a picture waypoint. It's incredibly frustrating missing good waypoints because they are gone by the time the screen comes up.
