Hema HX-1 Navigator

Hema Navigator Comparison

Discover the key differences in hardware, software, functionality and content between the Hema Navigator HN7 and the new Hema HX-1 Navigator.

The Hema Navigator has been the leading on and off-road GPS navigation system since its original release in 2008, and each new addition to the Hema Navigator range brings new content, features and functions for travellers to use on their adventures. The successor to 2014's Hema Navigator HN7 is the Hema HX-1 Navigator, which delivers a faster, easier to use device with new features and map content to better guide four-wheel drivers, tourers, campers and other explorers on their adventures.

"Considering how much better the HX-1 is than the HN7, it’s really good value at $699" Australian Caravan + RV
