Hema 4X4 Explorer Subscription Options
Within your hema 4X4 Explorer App you are granted access to a Free Subscription which includes:
Hema Explorer Map (Online Only)

Mapbox Hybrid Map
Mapbox Satellite Map
You can gain access to more maps, detailed information and more data with an Explorer Pro subscription. You can also purchase products within the app, including your favourite offline maps from Hema.
Note: 4X4 explorer is not designed for turn by turn navigation and should be used as a guide only. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Most mobile 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.

Very happy with functionality. Used it to map and track a wildflower trip in Western Australia. Nice to know exactly where you are, and were!

What a load of rubbish this app is. Can't even find my position with GPS, its about 5km away from where I am, and no where on the app can I find how to calibrate the GPS.

This is an update review (I was unhappy with app until major updates). Now I am very pleased with the app. Still a few things to master, but it has most of the features I had on my iPhone version and some unique to android. Good graphics and the additional info in POIs is good. Still need to master …
