JR can you post a link to the source for those charts please? They're kind of small for my tired eyes but I might be able to read them at the source.
On our last hike I tried to cache the general area in Google Earth on my phone, on the ground I very quickly realised it was of zero use......I'll admit that might be due to the terrain in question.We also had a Garmin hiking GPS, something pressed against the screen one time as my cousin was taking off his backpack, GPS kept sensing a touch in that area and was useless after that.I hear you, but I remain doubtful.....
I just had a very brief look at mapy.cz and it looks good. I use viewranger as it allows me to buy O/S maps at a reasonable rate v the paper ones.

For navigating one hint:Forget about google maps. Rely on offline maps.Here in europe I use mapy.cz , a czech map which has also an app where you can download topo maps from all over the world for free. Openstreetmap does that too, but costs some euros.Just compare mapy.cz with googlemaps for wilderness areas..
