The 4WD Mode on the Hema Navigator product line uses OziExplorer software.

OziExplorer maps on mobile devices need to be in one of the following two formats to function:

  • OZF
  • ECW

ECW files will work on mobile devices such as the Navigator, but do not perform as well as OZF files.

Below is a table with some links to suppliers of OziExplorer maps files, which might help if you are looking for extra content for your Navigator.
