Australia’s epic off-roading spots found easily with HEMA and what3words
When it comes to describing exactly where to find Australia’s off-road destinations, rest stops, or beautiful vantage points, things can start to get really complicated. Many places don’t have a traditional street address or visible landmark, and most of the best adventure spots have no address at all.
Three words to plan your adventure
what3words is a really simple way to find, save and share any location. It’s given every 3 metre square in the world a unique combination of three words: a what3words address.
///fishery.medical.deflects, for example, is the what3words address of an exact spot in the Kimberley, Western Australia.
what3words addresses have been added to over 100,000 points of interest across the Hema Maps cloud platforms and printed guides. Now it’s easier to find Australia’s most rugged and remote locations - from your favourite 4x4 track, to your favourite campground or holiday park, to the closest rest stop or dump point. All you need is three random words in the format ///word.word.word to be able to find any location using our search functions.
what3words is available in the following products:
- HemaX - https://www.hemax.com/
- CamperX - https://camperx.com.au/Content/CamperX
- Hema 4x4 Explorer - https://shop.hemamaps.com/pages/4x4-explorer-app
- Printed guides - look for the what3words address in the format ///word.word.word
Do I need wifi, mobile data or phone reception to use what3words addresses in HemaX/CamperX/Hema 4x4 Explorer?
what3words works offline, so you will be able to find the what3words address for your current location on either app without wifi, mobile data or phone reception. The words are fixed and will never change.
Why can’t I just use coordinates?
You can! Coordinates are super accurate and reliable and will always be supported in our platforms. However, some people find that what3words addresses are a more human-friendly way of giving the same information: what3words makes the HEMA product suite even more accessible for those who find three words easier to read, remember or share and much harder to mix up than coordinates.
