The HX-1 features a large 7-inch multi-touch screen with a bright 1024x600 pixel display, which is reinforced with a tempered glass screen protector for added durability. The device has a powerful 1GB RAM making the HX-1 impressively fast, while a 5000mAh battery will keep you exploring for up to 6 hours off charge with continuous use. 

On the reverse of the device is a 5-megapixel camera, which allows you to capture your adventure with geotagged photos and video up to 480p at 15 frames per second. The HX-1’s 7-inch multi-touch screen allows you to pinch and zoom the map for a closer look. 

The device has a WI-FI connection making it super easy for downloading additional maps, content and device updates quick and easy, so you can spend less time indoors and more time exploring off the beaten track. The device also allows you to share your tracks and journeys with other travellers.
