Hema Explorer is an offline GPS navigation app for planning, recording and sharing trips.
Designed for outdoor adventure, Hema Explorer has numerous features including multi-scale topographic mapping, a route generator and interactive points of interest for camping and touring. Hema Explorer allows users to record trips and upload them directly to their personal Hema Explorer Cloud account, which can then be shared with other app users on the Hema Explorer Cloud website. Hema Explorer users can also add on an Explorer Pro subscription to unlock more detailed topographic mapping and additional features within their Hema Explorer Cloud account.
4WD Maps delivers users an offline library of Hema maps for basic navigation and trip recording.
Only available for iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini, 4WD Maps comes preloaded with 105 individual base maps, state maps, regional maps and national park maps, including all of Hema’s best-known print titles in digital form. Users can plan and record their trips using waypoints, point-to-point routes and breadcrumb trails within a simple user-interface.
