Review: Hema Navigator - HN5i

My Shop Item Rating: My Rating 3/5

Just purchased a Hema HN5i navigator. i find street view very good and I am learning to use 4WD & TOPO modes. I am disappointed that I am unable to use the software on my Apple computer. Therefore I can't download maps or check routes while I am travelling. Just a warning for other Apple users.

Hi there Barbk
Although hema say on their website that the HN5i is not compatable with mac, this is not so.
My brother and I bought HN5i's about a month ago and we both have macs.
He has Parallels and windows XP, I don't but I will shortly.
Using the software supplied you can do the same on a Mac as can be done on a PC.
My brother needed to put POI's into the iGO Primo such as 'dump points' etc.
These POI's are available from and there are thousands of them in varying catagories.
There is no mention of 'how to' on the Hema site however after a short phone call to Hema my brother was soon on his way to adding poi's.
I understand Hema will soon be explaining this 'how to' on thier website.
Living is a journey,it depends on where you go !

With 'Parallels' you have the best of both worlds, I have been running it now for quite a while to be able to switch between Apple Mac and Windows and have them both running at the same time. Two computers in one.
