I’ve had my HX-1 since Christmas and been on two trips with. It was in the windscreen holder at all times. I’ve noticed that there are some cracks starting to appear in the screen. Has anyone else has this issue?

Thanks. I did call. They were very helpful, and knowledgeable.
Unfortunately, Ill need an external GPS repeater to get it to work on my car. I will get this and hope it works.

All Ok with me

Hi, I had initial problems getting started,
I refreshed my Hema account online with a new password.
Then made a Cloud account with the same name and password
This allowed me to connect immediately and download all maps took 1 hour.
It is doing everything well. My Hema 5 bounced around on a motorbike for years, this should be the same.
People who blame a personal GPS for nearly going through a red light need to alter their driving style.
Every contact with Hema over 10 years has been satisfactory.

Great unit

published

The HX-1 met my needs perfectly, it did get a little glitchy at times requiring a reboot but i found it easy to use the mapping system, the only real complaint i have is the phantom speed cameras every 3 kilometers, this is something hema need to sort out it nearly drove me bananas until i turned off speed camera alerts! Other than that its definitely a great alternative to paper maps and you'd be lucky to get lost with it mounted to your dash !

Im trying to update my HX-1 but when I go to check for updates now it tells me I have a network error. I've checked the wifi it was fine, reset just in case but still can't get the updates. It also said that we had registered to our email and to reset to another hema cloud ????

The media operator does not work on my HX-1. I can not find any solution to this fault?

Hi Chris, The Hx-1 Navigator is a dedicated GPS unit and as such was not designed to play media files other than the video recorded with the onboard camera. If you would like more information, please email us at: hemasupport@hemamaps.com.au

Does anyone else have problems with the navigation when using the Camps 10 Locations and the Camps Public Dump Points. I find my HX-1 to be hopeless, we have gotten lost so many times trying to follow the directions as given when we use this function. Our HX-1 sends us in circles, back tracking where we had just come from and no where near our destination. I contacted Hema and they told me to reset the GPS, which I did but it hasn't made any difference. I find if I enter the address the HX-1 gets us to where we want to be but when using the Camps function we end up chasing our tail. I am finding it quicker and easier to use our in car navigation instead. So far I have been very disappointed with the HX-1
