Warning

To perform this installation, your HN7 MUSt be connected to the PC in Mass Storage mode, as detailed in the article linked below:

HN7 Navigator - USB Mass Storage Mode connection to PC

The installer will not work correctly if the HN7 is NOT in Mass Storage mode!

This article describes how to install the Hema Navigator Explorer companion program on to a Windows PC.

The installer (Setup program) runs directly off the HN7's SD card, as the HN7 is not supplied with a copy on DVD.

You have two options for running the installer:

  • connect the HN7 directly to the Windows PC (in USB Mode) and run the installer off the HN7 SD card drive letter
  • remove the SD card from the HN7 and put it into an SD card reader attached to your PC

Whichever method you choose, the process is the same.

Continue with the instructions below.


Install with HN7 connected to PC

Once the HN7 is connected to the PC in USB mode, it should be visible within the Windows Explorer tree. The HN7 appears with TWO drive letters (one for internal memory, and one for the SD card) as shown below:

Click on the drive letter which represents the HN7 SD card.

Install with SD card in card reader connected to PC

With the SD card in the card reader, click on the drive letter which represents the SD card in Windows Explorer.

Continue with the instructions from Run the Installation program below

The right hand panel of Windows Explorer will show you the content on the HN7 SD card. Double-click the INSTALL Navigator app to PC folder:

After installation, an icon will be created on the Start Menu (Windows 7 shown here). The Start Menu will contain a folder under the "All Programs" menu containing the HN Explorer icon.

Start Screen on Windows 8

After installation, an icon will be created on the Windows Desktop. Windows 8 does not create Start Screen tiles by default, but an icon is also created under the Windows 8 "All Apps" screen. You can right-click this icon, and click "Pin to Start Screen" to create an icon on the Windows 8 Start Screen.

NOTE

Once the Hema Navigator Explorer software is installed, to transfer data back and forth between the PC and Navigator, you need to connect the HN7 in Sync Mode.
