HI all, we are of to Chile and Argentina in a couple of months and will be doing some remote driving. Does anyone know where maps of Chile and Argentina can be obtained an how they can be adapted for use on a Hema Navigator? I have the full version of OziExplorer on my PC and there is a range of different types of map files that can be imported.

Can't help with HEMA (be worth contacting their office), but you should contact our OKA owner friends Susi & Ruedi who are currently in South America and have been there a lot.
They are not HEMA or OziExplorer users, but it is very likely that they can help.

Possibly look at OSM Open Source Maps. See what they offer.

I use OSMplus app on android Phone . Maps are Free. in Aust gives good map detail. Possible the same for Sur America.

Hi Peter,

Slightly off topic, but is the actual app you're using entitled "OSMplus"?

I just checked the Google Play Store and can't seem to find that title.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you - I've been away from my PC for a few days - I'm not one of those who don't respond when folk go out of their way to try to help! :-)

Thank you for your response. i'll give that a go and see how it works for my purposes.

Regards,

I use either maps.me or pocket earth apps on my IPad mini or phone when overseas. They don't cost much and are great. I think they are open source maps.

Not sure if will work there but while overseas earlier in the year in Europe and UK we were able use hema app. It downloads the local free maps which were street level.

For the download you do need Internet access but you can download maps require in advance for later access.
This would be similar to maps.me I reckon.
Worked fairly well.

Hi Peter,

You should be able to use NavExtras to download street mapping of Chile and Argentina for the Navigator (to be used in iGo) - I think you do need to purchase them though. This is the same site that you download your street map updates from (just google NavExtras to find it).
