The age of digital maps and satellite navigation are apon us. This doesnt mean that traditional navigational aids such as books, maps and guides have become obsolete. Infact they're more popular than ever!
When you're out in the bush, you need to find your way. Not knowing your way can be a lethal combination as getting lost could mean you run out of water, food and resources to get yourself home safely. A GPS device is your best friend when you're travelling by vehicle to remote places, however if anything should go wrong with it, always have a backup.
Traditional maps from Hema and books such as the Australia Wide Camps series can get you out of trouble should you need to find somewhere to stay the night or look for food and water.
Check out the range of books, maps and guides Tough Toys has to offer.
Over the years Hema Maps has crafted a range of maps, atlases and digital products that has turned the company’s love of exploration into a reputation as the best map-makers in the 4WD industry.
This reputation has been long in the making, with the company marking the 20th anniversary of its first off -road map: one of Cape York.
Since that first map of the Cape, which is now in its 12th edition, field teams known as the Map Patrol have GPS surveyed over 250,000km of remote roads and tracks of Australia with sub-metre accuracy. The data that is compiled from these expeditions is then visualised by Hema’s master cartographers and put into the Hema maps you know and love.
This same mapping data is then used for all of Hema’s digital navigation solutions, including the Hema Navigator GPS systems and all of Hema’s Apps. This allows users to drive in the very tracks of the Hema Map Patrol. Hema has always been willing to take that next step to ensure supreme quality in its products, as evidenced by the Great Desert Tracks expedition in 1998.
Hema is prepared to explore and the team don’t rest until
they get it right.
