Swiss Pro Map

Swiss Pro Map

Swiss Pro Map, the map app for Switzerland and the Alpine region.

Swiss Pro Map is a versatile and rich map app with many useful features and functions for all outdoor activities, mountain sports, hiking, biking and aviation.
The focus of "Swiss Pro Map" lies on offline data and numerous functions and features, which are especially needed by professional users.

Swiss Pro Map is the successor of Swiss Map Mobile. With Swiss Map Mobile, Garzotto GmbH developed one of the most innovative and successful map apps in collaboration with swisstopo starting in 2008.
Since the official app of swisstopo, which is now available, will no longer be developed by us after a new tender in 2019, we have decided to continue to maintain the app independently of swisstopo and under a new name. A significant number of users do not want to do without the possibilities and features of Swiss Map Mobile. We have therefore placed the app on a new technical basis. While the usability and design have been modernized, the existing functionality has been retained as far as possible.
