I gave in to the Hema hype after hearing about it on various overlanding sites, and seeing it used in a few series. Unfortunately, the app as delivered is essentially a clone of Gaia GPS, but a clone of what Gaia was a few months prior. Gaia has progressed, seen substantial updates, and new content added on the regular. The Hema app however, is stagnant, buggy, and a bit of a waste of good potential. It's still somewhat usable, so I can't give it just one star, but it's not something I could recommend, when there's much better options available for the same (or similar) price.

I used Hema Explorer to plan and drive a trip from Virginia through Colorado to Utah. I found tracks for the main off road areas we wanted to drive and loaded them on both my iPhone and iPad. The tracks made off roading in unfamiliar areas very easy. On the interstate I liked using the Hema base map to locate rest areas and other locations. The Thunderforest maps are okay but not always detailed enough or accurate but still very helpful. After I recorded over 3000 miles in a track to document the entire trip, the older iPad became unresponsive until I stopped recording and started a new track. I suspect future versions will get better and better. In 2017, I am trying to plan a second trip. I found tracks on Hema Cloud and added them to my account. Sync on my iPhone nor iPad will work. Sometimes, the app will not even open. I do not trust this app for any remote navigation since it is unreliable recently. I will take another app as a backup and paper maps. The app frequently crashes. I used Facebook sign in which may be part of the problem.

I first got to know Hema through their booth at the Overland Expo 2016. I download the free app and than download the pro since I plan a trip to Moab,UT that year. Putting up the Trail was easy but if you change anything during the actual trail and you not in mobile reception the app won’t let you plan or do anything?! Even if you download the area map! This is so wrong and not worse it, regardless the app keep crashing at real time when you need it. I’ve try to contact the webmaster and email my issues to the developer and got absolutely nothing in return. They never contact which mean they have no solution to such problem. SAVE YOUR MONEY and start away from this app!

Quite disappointed with this app; don’t waste $20. For the price of this app you can have a 2 year subscription to Gaia GPS which is substantially better than the current Hema offering. This app has many software bugs, the offline functionality is lacking, and the route creation feature leaves much to be desired. Do yourself a favor and give Gaia a try for free for 7 days.

This was an interesting 1.0 app, but it’s been more than a year and interface problems have gotten worse, not better. Text buttons overwrite each other, making it impossible to click either of them and you have to force quit the program. I seem to recall paying $20 for Hema Explorer and it’s this poorly supported? Avoid.
