Loading the latest HN explorer onto your computer.

To move your Waypoints from your HN6 or HN7 you will need to install HN explorer onto your PC first.

To ensure that you have the latest version of the Hema Explorer application, you can visit the following link first:

This link will provide you with the most up-to-date information regarding the latest version available.

Downloading and installing the latest version of the Hema Explorer application is important as it ensures that you have access to all the latest features, improvements, and bug fixes. Also the latest version has the option to Export as GPX, which we will need.

In addition to checking for updates, the provided link also offers a Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) download option if your computer does not connect the device.  WMDC is a useful tool that allows you to synchronize data between your HN6 or HN7 device and your computer. This can be helpful when you need to transfer waypoints, tracks, or other data from your device to your PC. 

Connecting your HN device
Turn on the unit
Press settings

Press USB

Select Windows Sync and then press the save button ( The orange square disk at the top ) 

Connect the unit to the computer.

Windows Mobile device centre will come up – minimise this, do not turn it off.
