Click the 'help' button on the screen in order to bring up a user guide.
The most prominent feature is the 7in multi-touch screen, which is accompanied by a power and charging indicator on the left, and the power button is located above this on the top of the unit. A short press and hold will turn on the HX-1, or wake it up from sleep. Down the left hand side of the HX-1 is an auxiliary port for headphone input, there's also a microSD slot for memory expansion that's capable of handling a 32GB card. A microphone can be found beside this, which captures audio in video record mode. Additonal memory is useful for storing photos and videos you capture with your HX-1. The mini-usb port is the primary purpose for charging the device, either from the included car charger or mini USB cable. On the back of the unit is a speaker and a 5-megapixel for taking geotagged photos, and recording videos up to 480p at 15 frames per second.

Reviews of Hema HX-1 Navigator
Hema HX-1 Navigator(5) By: Bill on 26 November 2016I have had this product for just on a week and on first impression, I must say that I am very happy. The suction cap is very firm on the screen and has a solid feel when the screen is locked in place. No rattles or falling off. Quite easy to adjust the tilt and turn but ensure that you are holding the unit when doing this to ensure that it all doesn't fall out of your hands due to the weight. (Almost dropped it first go in my Amarok trying to get the "perfect" 'spot!) The screen is very easy to read even in the sun and I find the GPS locks on within 10 or so seconds. So far I have only used the Sat Nav option and it is quite intuitive and simple to read and use. I have used the Hema maps on my tablet and phone for years so it helps knowing the overall feel of it, but, there are more tweaks to this unit that I have not explored as yet. The H button is a great idea as a back button from any screen which when driving is a huge plus. So, for a week's use I can' fault it, and, have had a few glances my way by other 4x4 users! Worth the purchase !
