this is a Android App screenshot, it looks about the same, thanks
can you zoom in any more on the app?
Hey Hergy, so are you happy with the HX1?
I know it's an android tablet etc etc but my old IPad Air is wifi only so to use the app I've either got to get a GPS module (about $300) or new IPad with data facility (so GPS will work, $800). I like the idea of a dedicated map device anyway.
I can get a HX1 from the RAA for $629 so think it's a pretty good deal.
Couple of questions, the old Hema had a sun glare shade, do you need one for HX1 and do they have one available.
Also, looking at doing NZ trip soon. Don't think it has 4WD maps for NZ but normal driving GPS facility. Is that right?
Is the normal driving GPS ok? I would like to consider this as an option. I have the Toyota GPS as it came with the Altitude. As indicated in other threads, Toyota GPS is always a few years behind and costs about $400 to upgrade. ( pita to use too)

Hi Pirate Pete.
Yes i am happy with it, so far the HX1 is ok in the sun but a screen would not hurt i suppose. It has street mapping for NZ but NOT Explore maps. I actually find the street mapping better then the GPS in me Kakadu. So far i am happy with it, i have sent a few questions of to Hema and will wait their reply regarding map downloads and the rendering of maps. Other then that i like the lifetime updates for the Explore maps and 3 years for the street mapping.
Just found if i pay another $10 per mth or $50 per yr it zooms down to 50 mts instead of the 500 mts now
