Use Quo to Decide Which Path to Take

After you've decided where to go, Quo will help you select the optimum track to get there, such as:

  • Helping you select an easy track, because you're taking your whole family to the trip and need to adjust the trip difficulty to them or
  • Helping you find the most difficult track possible because you want to get ready for that next marathon or something!

Quo will provide you with all information you need for your hiking trip:

  • Leg distances, compass bearings and total journey lengths for each of your created routes.
  • Check all the hill heights along the way and their elevation profiles to get a feeling for how demanding the journey will be.
  • Dynamic route profiles provide you with full route details as you are putting your waypoints on the map, immediately telling you if you might be setting up yourself for a too difficult journey.
  • Follow your tracks with a 3D preview to visualize your entire journey.
  • Use Aerial photos to see what the terrain really looks like.

  • Exclusive Quo's rule for even more accuracy

Accurately estimating the time needed for your trip or individual legs of your trip will help you get there on time so that you don't miss anything important (museum opening times, sight-seeing tours, etc.) or get stranded somewhere in the middle of the night.

What do everyday outdoor enthusiasts say about Quo?

Just a small sample of e-mail messages received from our customers ...

Paul Webster, Top Scottish Trail Expert and Walk Highlands* founder

Paul is a digital mapping expert, convinced that Quo is better than Memory Map or Anquet.

"Quo first came to our attention due to its low prices for Digital Ordnance Survey Maps - up to half the price of its competitors. Would the downside be software that was difficult to use or with less options than Memory Map or Anquet?

To our surprise, we found that the answer is no - we at Walkhighlands have found Quo to be the easiest to use and most fully featured mapping software on the market.

We like it so much that we've made all our routes available as Quo downloads.

It couldn't be easier to use, with everything available on a context menu brought up by a right-click of the mouse, whether it's adding waypoints or exporting the route to your GPS. You can add more maps - Explorer or Landranger scale - by simply downloading them at great prices.

Best of all for those of us that have used other mapping software in the past - when Mapyx brought out a new version of Quo, you could buy the latest OS mapping at a big discount."

*Walk Highlands is the award-winning independent website for walkers. With well over 2,000 site visitors each day, Walk Highlands is now the number one walking website in Scotland.
