Hema navigation unit

 Hi guys. Iam looking at buying a Hema 7  track navigation unit but been told that I could down load an AP for my iPad  for around $ 150. Plus I need a GPS type receiver for my IPad for when it's out of phone service range .

Can anyone recommend whether this is a better way to go and which GPS receiver unit I should purchase .

 I use Hema maps on IPad mini. The iPads that accept a SIM card have an in-built gps. The iPads that don't accept a SIM card, don't have an in-built gps. 

You don't need to have a SIM card in the iPad, as long as it will accept the sim. 

I have used my iPad with Hema along the Gibb River Road, Port Warrender, Oodandatta track without any dramas.

 Ozi explorer works really well on a galaxy tablet. This is what I used on my last Kimberley trip..

Don't waste your money on the hema 7. spend your buck on an ipad upgrade and download the app. much easier for viewing and plotting.

I downloaded the HEMA app for iPad and mine didn't have an inbuilt GPS so I bought a Garmin GLO Bluetooth GPS reciever. Works well.
