Start your Australian adventure with Hema's
4WD Maps App. The 4WD Maps app provides offline digital maps to help you explore remote locations without an internet connection. The 4WD Maps App allows you to access Hema’s rich 4WD maps offline using your smartphone or iPad enabling you to explore Australia off the grid.

The 4WD Maps App from Hema Maps is for those who prefer our detailed printed maps in a digital form. This app includes a comprehensive range of Hema's printed maps and third party map options which features roads, 4WD tracks, points of interest (POIs), camps, facilities information, topographic maps and information to guide your travels of the beaten track.

The 4WD Maps App features all current Hema touring and topographic maps for confidently navigating off-road, caravaning and camping adventures. Together with the 4WD Maps offline feature and your device's in-built GPS receiver, you can track your current location on the detailed Hema maps, along with planning your routes by dropping waypoints and creating track logs of your epic adventures. 

We've got you covered during your travels!
