*You do not need a SIM Card installed or cellular coverage to utilise the GPS tracking functions on iPad for the app, though a WiFi+Cellular iPad is necessary to discover and track your location. A WiFi-only iPad does not contain the in-built GPS that a WiFi+Cellular iPad does, however external Bluetooth GPS receivers can be purchased for use with a WiFi-only iPad.

Not just the Hema 4WD maps.
Certainly it is nice to have a great many of the excellent Hema 4wd maps at your fingertips, and the ability to purchase others as you need them, but the "goto" and "follow route" navigation is interesting and useful for remote areas driving, for hiking and also for boating.
Before buying, suggest you get the Hema Explorer app because this may be all you need if you are not attempting navigation over extremely remote areas.
There is also a free offline navigation app using Hema maps which works essentially the same as the Hema 4wd app, but you will need to purchase maps, other than the very basic ones. Perhaps try this out first and then purchase the 4wd app if you like it and want the maps, as it is cheaper than purchasing all the maps separately in the "free" app.
If you do get this app, it works well in conjunction with the Hema Explorer app; and route, track and waypoint files can be sent from one to the other via email.
Throughly enjoyed my experience with the app so far. Helped us navigate a national park we had never been through before and contained a lot of useful information! Little user interface things like dropping pins, if it automatically dropped exactly where you were that would be great. On some of the sights I go to I don't have time to be fine tuning the waypoint to exactly where I am! Also more icons would be great. Example being waterfall icons. Costs are are a little pricey and nearly prices me (a apprentice mechanic) out of the app. Lastly the zooming seems to bounce up when you lift your fingers off. I 100 percent am glad I made the investment in this app however these little things and other small things like this are what hold me back from a perfect score! Hope I've been of assistance to both Hema and potential customers.
Look no further!
If you're looking for the ultimate mapping system for your next adventure off the beaten track, look no further! For the price, the detail and giant number of maps available is worth itself many times over! Granted, I've had this app since the day it was released, so I paid a different (and much higher) price than you will.
Only thing I dislike are the E-maps. They are a waste of time, slow to use and can't be used without phone coverage. Just get the non E-maps and this app is the best thing since sliced bread!
You don't need phone coverage to use this app - just for anyone wondering! I have covered most of Northern Australia using this app, never ever had a drama. Full credit to the developers!
