I will be taking off soon on another hike. On the last walk, I lost the track a couple of times, so I need GPS tracking for hiking further afield.
These days, a dedicated GPS device is not needed, a smartphone will do. Or so I am lead to believe -- I am a complete newby in this area.
I read reports in some bush walking forums, and came up with a short list of GPS apps for Android.
Then I narrowed it down to one, AlpineQuest. Firstly, I tried the free Lite version, really loved it, so paid US$9.99 for the Full version.
Note, I first uninstalled the Lite version, then installed the Full version.
My main interest is the Bibbulmun Track, and lots of maps are available. Apparently, these are automatically cached locally, for off-line use. I will soon be testing that, as the walk that I intend taking very soon will be mostly where there is no mobile signal.
