Appreciate the comments, guys.

There is room for follow up courses.

Hema Explorer is cheap and intuitive:

It does everything we need it to do.
Easy to learn.
Fantastic backup from Hema.
If we all are using the same App it is easier interaction in the field (and it doesn't preclude the use of other Apps, e.g., Hema Maps, HN7, OE).
Group education at other times.
Ozi Explorer (the Rolls Royce of moving map technology (MMT)) is too hard to learn. It is like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. It puts people off learning about MMT.

For all the Trips I will do (including the Deserts) HE is good enough. Let's run with it. If people then want to 'upgrade' to OE they have a firm base from which to then move forward.

Thanks very much to Craig Roper for the help and instruction with the Android version of the App during the Presentation. About a third of the attendees were using Android and without Craig's input, ably assisted by Graham Howe, we would not have been able to move forward as we did.

Guys, if you have an iPad or a Tablet it's a no brainer - get  Hema Explorer.
