Navigate and discover what’s around you completely offline with Hema Explorer. Track your location using your device’s in-built GPS receiver* while you navigate with reliable Hema maps, and plan every stop along the way with 40,000 interactive POI.
POI cover accommodation (e.g. campsites, caravan parks), facilities (e.g. dump points, toilets, rest areas), services (e.g. emergency telephones, mechanical repairs), information centres and supply points (e.g. 24-hour fuel, roadhouses), with each POI containing additional information including facilities, activities and contact details where available.
While you track your location on a Hema map, record the track log of your journey along with geo-tagged photos and waypoints that you can add a title and notes to, so you can remember your trip in detail and share it with the world when you return home.
Prepare for your trip or get information on the road with Hema Explorer’s online features. Find out what the weather will be like where you’re headed by accessing up-to-the-minute weather forecasts, a three-day outlook and map-overlaid rain radar. Or, download satellite imagery, street and terrain mapping to use on your adventure simply by creating a route of your trip before you go.
You can even find inspiration for your next adventure and show your own off to the world on the Hema Explorer Cloud, the public track database powered by Hema Explorer users. View track logs combined with geo-tagged photos and notes from all over Australia, which you can seamlessly download to your device to guide your own adventures. Alternatively, save your own journey using Hema Explorer’s powerful trip recording functions and then show it off on an interactive Hema map on the Hema Explorer Cloud website.
*Most Android devices come with an in-built GPS receiver. However, it’s important to ensure the device you’re using has an in-built GPS receiver, as this is what enables location services that allow you to track your position. External Bluetooth GPS receivers can be purchased for use with devices that do not have one in-built.
