WARNING, DO NOT INSTALL WITHOUT WIFI. Just updated to the new version and upgraded to explorer pro and immediately had to uninstall. It started downloading several Gb of maps right away without warning me. I looked in vain for the option to download on WiFi only (it doesn't have one). Then I told it to pause download, it said it was paused but continued to download. I then force closed the app. It restarted itself to download in the background several times. Had to uninstall. I hope I'll be able to finish the download at home and it won't do this all the time. This type of behaviour is completely unacceptable, especially when the sub is $60. If you don't have an app to monitor data usage this could burn you badly. Update, still doing this but also crashes constantly and is barely useable. Do not confuse the quality of the maps (very good) with the quality of this app (appalling). Months of this and still hasn't been fixed.
When I first purchased this app it worked great and was easy to use. It auto updated recently and now has constant issues. Already had tec help twice but there is only so much time I am willing to spend fixing and re-learning how to use an app I paid for. Un-install and re-install just presented me with new problems. After reading the latest reviews it appears to be updates made by Hema to "compell" users into upgrading to pro and downloading maps again. Seems the best advice Hema can give disgruntled customers is "submit a ticket for tec help". Your not getting anymore of my time or $ THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND I REFUSE TO GO THROUGH THIS A THIRD TIME. HEMA IS RIPPING PEOPLE OF BY CHANGING THE APP AFTER THE PURCHASE HAS BEEN MADE. Don't waste your money people.
Great product Great service I had an issue with my account when i purchased the app. Phoned support and was blown away with exceptional service. Have used most navigation apps on android and apple devices. I have now deleted all other navigation apps and only now use this one. Take some time to learn how to use it. I have used it on a number of trips, and into some very rugged country and it has performed flawlessly. Worth every cent you pay, compared to some other navigation apps it is not expensive.
Lots of work needs to be done to justify the steep price tag. This app needs to move on from just being a Hema map just on your phone. It need exciting features and the map viewing is fairly basic. Many free apps are now offering similar features. Seeing that VMS has now released an app (while fairly expensive too) which is far more futuristic, Hema may be left in the dust. The app has no bugs but the bang for buck is really not there
Not to bad App works ok..zooming in and out can be slow sometimes and the gps occasionally bugs a little. Also it would be nice if you could add differnt icon pins for historic sites camping grounds and the like so we can add them to our maps ourselves if we need to it would loom better and be easier to navigate rather then just using waypoint flags...the only thing i really dont like is paying for the app initially and then having to subscribe to get the pro edition choose one or the other not both
A lot of tracks are not accurate, and when I zoom in too high it just shows a graph grid pattern. I can set waypoints and it seems to work well for that, overall Hmmmm not so good to at best ok, tracks need to be way more up to date. And unless I'm doing something wrong the zoom needs to go in a lot tighter. I don't use this for tracks anymore, I only use it when on foot, due to the deficiencies.
