What is an AQX file?
An AQX file is a map configuration file used by Psyberia AlpineQuest and All-In-One Offline Maps, which are map viewing apps for Android. It contains XML data that the apps use to access and download online maps. Both apps include default AQX files; users can also create their own AQX files to install custom maps.
Pysberia AlpineQuest and All-In-One Offline Maps are Android apps that allow you to download and view various topographic maps offline. For example, you can use AlpineQuest to download a map from Google Maps and then continue viewing that map even if you lose your network connection.
Both apps use AQX files to access and download online maps. These files contain XML-formatted data that specifies a map's name, description, and online location. AQX files may also contain other data, which specify items such as the map's outline, preview image, and additional map layers.
How to open an AQX file
To use an AQX file with Psyberia AlpineQuest or All-in-One Offline Maps (Android), place the file in the app's ~/datastore/maps/ directory. More detailed instructions can be found on each app's website.
You can also open an AQX file in Microsoft Visual Studio Code (multiplatform) or any other text editor, to view and edit the XML data it contains.
