Just wondering which app people would recommend between Hema and Mud Maps.

Also there are 2 Hema Apps on the app store but im not 100% sure of the difference.

Cheers Mitch

Laura, Have a read or the recent Thread 110616

HEMA have 2 systems.
1, HEMA 4WD Maps, where you can download all maps and have them on your tablet for access at anytime, no need of an internet connection.
2, HEMA Explorer that downloads base TOPO and HEMA maps but is also interactive needing access to the internet.

I have both on an Android tablet, I prefer HEMA 4WD Maps, I also have additional maps.

As far as Mud Maps, click the thread link and have a read.

Thanks Tazbaz that is what I tried to say in 2 above.

If you want to drill down on an area you can highlight and download it and save it to the tablet, that does require the internet.

This is where those additional maps I mentioned, come in handy when I use HEMA 4WD Maps

Yeah the mud maps seem pretty step. The hema explorer look arlight, just want to use it for finding camp sites and things like that. I looked like its got offline mode too

I wish these apps would have free 7 day period so you could have a play around with them.

Hi Laura

If you want a free trial Memory Map offers that.

I have it on my ipad and PC. You get a basic map for free forever then other maps can be had on trial before you have to pay.

Cheers

I have both on my iPad. Think I prefer Mudmaps for planning and Hema 4WD for nav.

But in my opinion both are good choices.

I'm pretty sure you get a trial period with memory map, I prefer it to mud and hema, even though it uses a lot of the hema maps.
Cheers.

I wouldn't recommend Mud Map. They rip you off. I paid big money for Mud Maps HD and now they tell me tough luck they are not supporting it any more.

Probably do that to their current product in a year or so and expect you to pay them again.

I agree with Mark. I purchased an even earlier version of mudmaps with promises of updates and whats to come. Shortly after purchase all support stopped and he started selling mudmap HD. No option of a small fee to update and bring already purchased maps over (including all the westprint maps I paid for). Had to buy it all over again. No way I said..lesson learnt.

I decided then to never buy a product that locked users into their maps. I wanted to be able to use maps that were either ecw or ozf files. I could source aus 250k for free. All the 1:100k & 1:25k maps I needed free as I live in NSW. Bought the Hema maps on dvd in the format that meant I could use them in multiple applications.

So for my Ipad I settled on Twonav - much cheaper and more configurable to the way you want it to work. Their pc software allows you to convert the ozf/map and ecw files into their format (rmap) and this can be done with the free version. If I ever change devices and go andriod all I need to do is by ozi app and all the maps can be used on that. I dont need to buy them again.
