Hema goes Hybrid

Hema’s new and improved Hybrid HN5 Navigator GPS unit offers not one but two mapping applications and features a large 5” screen for easy viewing, plus a new 64 channel GPS for improved location accuracy, 2GB onboard memory and a Micro SD card slot for extra map and data storage.

Other new features include Bluetooth connectivity and an FM transmitter. It is also capable of accepting a rear view camera and has several other useful functions such as a calculator, media player, photo viewer and calendar.

But what really sets the HN5 Hema Navigator apart from the rest is that it comes preloaded with Hema’s full range of award-winning maps and Memory Map which accesses New Zealand's widest range of high resolution raster topo maps and marine charts, making it ideal for those who like to get off the beaten track. The intelligent voice guidance software uses the latest Navteq streets and back roads making it easy to navigate your way to just about anywhere.

“Since the release of Hema’s first Navigator in Australia, back in June 2008, we have spent a lot of time listening to what people want from a dedicated off-road GPS. As a result we have a much improved unit loaded up with the best possible specifications for New Zealanders to purchase,” says Amy Brown, general manager of Hema New Zealand.

The all new HN5 Hema Navigator retails for $990; for further information and a full list of stockists visit

Gordon Campbell: On The Skewed Media Coverage Of Gaza

Now that he’s back as Foreign Minister, maybe Winston Peters should start reading the MFAT website which is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of how Kiwis alerted the rest of the world to the genocide in Rwanda. How times have changed ...

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.
