  • Knowledgebase

  2. If you cannot find an answer within the Knowledgebase articles, submit a ticket to the Ticket System.
  3. Contact Tech Support via telephone if you require further assistance.


The Knowledgebase (KB) is designed to answer many questions related to your use Hema Maps products.

Hema's current range of digital products includes:

  • Hema Navigator product line (HN7, HX-1, HX-2)
  • 4x4 Explorer app for Android and iOS
  • Hema 4WD maps app for iOS
  • CamperX app for Android and iOS
  • Hema Explorer app for Android and iOS

KB articles are assigned to categories in an effort to help you find what you are looking for.

Articles are generally divided into per product top-level categories (ie. HN7 Navigator) which contain additional sub-categories to help narrow down your search.

Some articles exist in more than one category, as they are not specific to a particular product.

What's in the Knowledgebase?

We try to maintain a list of articles which are based upon the questions we get asked related to Hema's range of products.

Sometimes, we can anticipate likely questions, and have a KB article ready for action before anyone has thought of it ;-)

Sometimes, a new article will be created directly as a result of enquiries made through our Support Ticket system (

What's NOT in the Knowledgebase?

We generally do not provide any specific information related to non-Hema hardware, unless there is some specific interaction with our software or apps.

If you are looking for information about what a particular button does on your new iPad, then it is not likely to be here.

In these cases, you will likely be better served by visiting the manufacturer's website or using Google (or whatever your favourite search engine is), to search for this information.

Finding the Information you are looking for

Finding articles directly

You can browse through the categories directly using the tree view on the left of the KB page.

For example, you might be looking for information related to updating your street maps on your HN7.

You can open the HN7 Navigator category, then open the iGO - Street sub-category. You will quickly see what articles and other sub-categories exist in this category, and (hopefully) find the information you are looking for.


There is a lot of information in the Knowledgebase.
If you do not find what you are looking for, try changing the text you enter in the search box.
Be brief, but not TOO brief!

  • It is probably better to type a single word or a few brief words, rather than a big sentence. (ie. rather than typing "how to put gps coordinates into Hema HN7", just type "coordinates").
