Anyone know how I can download the treks from this website into a Navman GPS? (Currently have a MY80T and am considering a MY350LMT for Reversing Camera input).

I expected an expert would have answered your question by now but nothing's happened so I'll have to make do. Here goes.

I'm no expert with this particular brand of GPS but I suspect it is similar to Garmin and Tom Tom GPS, and if so, you cannot download treks. WYSIWYG. Don't waste your money on upgrading to the NAVMAN MY350LMT because it sounds like you are starting to want more than they are capable of providing.

If you want to download treks and track plots., you are starting to move into a different type of technology. You need to be thinking about the Hema HN6 Navigator or the Hema 4WD Maps app for Ipad/Iphone. Also, be aware that not all Ipads have an in built GPS so you need to own the Ipad that has 3G/3G capabilities.

I'm not trying to do a sales pitch for Hema but using them as an example. VMS is another that comes to mind.

Thanks for the input. I thought it may have been the case but was hoping there was a way around it.

Have previously looked into a HN6 but believe the Navman would have better and more accurate city and main road coverage??

Just purchased the Hema app for iPad so will give that a go first.

The Hema HN6 has very capable on road as well as off road capability. they are separate apps that you switch between. I've used iGO street navigation and it compares very well to Tom tom and Garmin so that would not be a disadvantage. The same applies to the VMS unit.

remember that you need the appropriate maps for the Hema 4WD Maps app. I think perhaps they may come bundled with the app. Good luck.

I am pretty sure you can only download Navman maps from the Navman website onto their GPS.

Yes for $39 I was able to download Navman's 4WD Tracks (from Hema) which has quite a few tracks in it. Haven't used it to great extent yet though.

I was more wanting to load pre planned trips and the treks from ExplorOz. So apart from the HN6 and VMS are there any other alternatives?

There are alternatives.
Tablets running on Android OS can take the Oziexplorer for Android app. It would be better to get a 7" tablet as the 10.1 inch type may be too big to mount properly. This app enbles the maps used in the Oziexplorer PC version to be run (NATMAP, Hema, VICMap etc). With this setup you can also purchase the Tom Tom app for Android. There are probably other apps that I don't know about .

You can purchase a Chinese 7" GPS on Ebay that runs on Windows CE and use OziExplorer CE . Again you can load the Tom Tom app or Igo Primo for street navigation. Many have iGO preloaded. This is my setup and it works very well but when this unit dies I'll be going down the 7" android Tablet road.

As I understand it, the Hema 4WD app has proprietary maps and cannot use the existing Hema maps normally used with OziExplorer. I'm happy to be corrected and enlightened on this matter though.

The Navman runs windows CE and is capable of being hacked to run Oziexplorer. Just need to set up a boot SD card and load Oziexplorer and maps and away you go. Can supply more info if you won't. Cheers
