I have both. It's still hard to beat AlpineQuest for sheer speed and the ability to quickly layer multiple maps.

Locus Map only allows for one overlay layer whereas Alpinequest lets you stack many layers. To be fair, in practice I've not found the need to use more than one layer but others may have different needs.

Locus Map has a boatload of additional features that are useful to me. The developer recently revised the Route Planner. It works completely offline and offers full auto-routing (with shaping, via, and nogo points).

Anyway, it's good to have choices; either of these two apps is likely to meet the needs of most hikers.

PS
Thanks for the tip about Maps Plus. I'll check it out.
