View Full Version : HEMA v VMS

10th April 2010, 09:19 PM
I have purchased a HEMA HN5 and like the unit but i am not happy at all with Route66, its a shame really because i enjoy the unit otherwise. I was wondering if people could give me some advice on the pros and cons of the Hema when compared to the VMS Touring 500 unit which seems to do the same thing but uses different software, it uses whereis 2009 for its maps.

Any info or advice would be great as I may still be able to take the Hema back and get the VMS if I feel it will work better.

Can't help but agree with your opinion of Route66.

Have a read of these two threads:
