    ExplorOz Key
    The ExplorOz Key is a new tool which allows you to "lock" information that you have submitted to the EOTrackMe system, so that only those that have the password can read view your tracking.



    To set up an ExplorOz Key, click on the "My Profile" tab, and enter a password into the ExplorOz Key field. This can be anything you like (no character requirements). Once you have entered the password, click update.




    When you register a device to EOTrackMe, a checkbox can be ticked to turn on the ExplorOz Key. You can also add this to current devices by clicking on the "Edit Device" button.

    To access tracking from a locked device, the ExplorOz Key must be entered. The easiest way for you to direct your friends and family to your tracking is to go to your Public Profile page and click on the email function. Enter the appropriate email addresses, and compose a message stating that this is where they can find your tracking, and include the password.

    You can of course communicate this via your own email account, or other means, just ensure that you supply them with the URL of your Public Profile (copy and paste out of the address bar) and ExplorOz Key, alternatively you could instruct them to search for you from the "Find a Person" page, found in the Members Section.
    INSTRUCTIONS

    What is EOTrackMe

    EOTrackMe is an member tracking facility that receives and displays tracking data from compatible devices. Tracking is displayed on the EOTrackMe page, as well as in your Member Profile, so you can keep friends, family, and other members informed of your travels.

    Submitting Tracking From Devices

    EOTrackMe supports up to five tracking devices per member (additional use available on request). Tracking can be submitted via the satellite network using a GPS Tracker/Messenger Device or via the internet using a compatible mobile phone, PC or tablet device. Plus, there is the capability to view “group tracking” of all devices linked to your profile at once on your “EOTrackMe" tab.

    Protecting Your Home Address

    Your home address is protected with an automatic 2km (expandable) Geofence around your home address - as listed in your “My Details” tab. Additional Geofences can also be added as needed (for example friend’s addresses) and expanded to up to a 10km radius. Tracking will not record/display until you are outside your Geofence.

    Password Protect Current Tracking

    If you do not want to have your current location displayed as public, you can choose to "lock" the tracking for your device. Simply click on "Edit Device" then enter a password into the password field. This password can be used by your friends and family so that they are the only people able to access your movements. Once you have completed the trip, simply save the track and it will be made public on your profile page as a User Trek.

    Tracking Display

    Once you’re on the road simply start up your tracking device/software and tracking data will be submitted to EOTrackMe. This will then be displayed in both the EOTrackMe section on the site, and your Member Profile “My Map & EOTrackMe” tab. EOTrackMe not only displays your tracking on a map, it will also provide information about your journey such as moving average, overall distance, direction from start, average speed, total travel time and graphical elevation/altitude profile.

    Saving EOTrackMe Tracking

    You can also periodically save your tracking data as User Treks, simply save when needed and give your Trek a title e.g. “Simpson Desert Crossing 2012”. No matter how large or small the trip, you can save your tracking at any time in a way that makes sense to you (for example to correspond with your ExplorOz Blogs).



    Supported Devices and Tracking Software 3G/4G Network

    Symbian Based Mobile Phones GSM Tracker

    These are phones which use the Symbian operating system and feature an inbuilt GPS receiver. To use a Symbian phone with EOTrackMe, you will need to install GSM Tracker Software (licensed by Apiscore). See Settings for GSM Tracker for more information and compatible phones.

    iPhone & iPad - uTrackMe

    All iPhones feature an inbuilt GPS receiver, as well as selected iPads. Simply by downloading the uTrackMe app from iTunes you can submit tracking to EOTrackMe. See Settings for uTrackme (iPhone) for more information.

    Blackberry - beGPS

    beGPS software can be installed on compatible Blackberry phones to enable use with EOTrackme. See Settings for beGPS for more information and a list of compatible Blackberry Devices.

    Windows Notebook/Tablet - EOTrackMe Windows

    EOTrackMe Windows software can be installed on your Windows Notebook/Tablet (excluding Windows Mobile) to record tracking in conjunction with a GPS Receiver (either inbuilt or external). EOTrackMe also offers OziExplorer (navigation software) integration if OziExplorer is installed on your Windows device. See Settings for EOTrackMe Windows for more information.

    Android Smartphone/Tablet - EOTrackMe Android

    EOTrackMe Android software can be installed on your Android Device to record tracking in conjunction with a GPS Receiver (either inbuilt or external). See Settings for EOTrackMe Android for more information.

    More Information:

    All of the above tracking software supports “store and forward”. What this means is that although they use the internet to send tracking data to the EOTrackMe system, they will store this data while not within coverage areas, so there are no “gaps” in your tracking files.
    You will also need access to an internet connection, either as a data allowance/data pack with your pre-paid credit or contract plan for phones/tablets, or a mobile internet device for your Notebook. Public & business provided Wi-Fi networks can be used, however this means that tracking can only be submitted when you have Wi-Fi access.

    Data Usage:

    Data usage will depend upon the interval you have set-up between position records. Each position recorded is 700 bytes – less than 1kb, so, if you have the software set-up to record your position every 200m (standard setting) then you will record 500 locations per 100km (350kb), or 5000 locations per 1000km (3.5MB).

    Supported Devices and Tracking Software Satellite Network

    SPOT Satellite Messenger

    EOTrackMe supports either the SPOT 2 or the SPOT Connect when a Tracking Plan option has been enabled (SPOT Subscription fees apply). See Settings for SPOT which contains service and setup information for connecting your SPOT system to the EOTrackMe service.

    Yellowbrick

    Any Yellowbrick device supporting position updates (and with sufficient credits) can submit tracking to EOTrackMe. See Settings for Yellowbrick which contains service and setup information for connecting your Yellowbrick system to the EOTrackMe service.

    More Information:

    These devices offer the best real-time tracking display as they submit tracking data using the satellite network. They are ideal for use when you also require the other services they offer (such as satellite messaging and SOS functions) or if you want real time tracking when travelling in remote areas for extended periods of time.
    Settings for beGPS (BlackBerry)
    Install beGPS software on your Blackberry to make your phone compatible with EOTrackMe. beGPS supports full store and forward of data (provided the app is not closed) so will keep track of you even when phone/internet service is not available (all positions will be transmitted when service is restored).

    This product is available from the ExplorOz Shop here: beGPS -Tracker for BlackBerry Smartphones, the current price is $12.95 ($12.30 for Members).

    Want to test how it works before you buy? There is a trial version available, which will operate perfectly for a limited number of days to allow you to trial the system on your device (see the product page for download information).



    Once you have this product installed the set-up is currently as follows:
    • Select the "Communications" menu from the "Options" screen
    • Tick the "Send update online" checkbox
    • Set "Protocol" to http
    • Set "communication Connection" to Blackberry MDS
    • In HTTP Options URL enter http://maps.exploroz.com/track/position.aspx?uid=Mxxxx - where xxxx is your Personal Member number without any leading zeros. Ensure that you use a capital M and if you do not know your Member number, it is listed on both the "My Home" tab on the site, and on your Member Card. If you are a Business Member then please change the Mxxxx to a Cxxxx.
    Other advanced settings:
    In the "Update of Position" menu there are a number of settings related to how far & often the unit should report positions to the server. In "Update Strategy" it is recommended that you select "Change of position" and then for the Change of Positions parameters select 200m or more. You can set anything you like however the smaller the value the higher the data usage on your phone data plan. The data packets are not huge however if you travel 200km with a 5m selection you will be sending 40,000 position reports each being around 700bytes totalling approx 28Mb, if this is reduced to 50m you would be sending in 2.8Mb and at 500m only 280Kb. So the 200m number is the most suitable as it will produce a good mapping result and keep the data usage at reasonable level.Most of the other options do not effect the server system and you can select a setup that is suitable to your usage (except for changing the Data Format - this MUST remain setup as NMEA-0183. If you have any questions or need more information on setting up your device please contact us via the Feedback system.



    Once these have been installed you should be ready to register your device by having it send a position to the server. If you have setup correctly you will be able to see and complete the device registration on your My Profile page (as per instructions in EOTrack Me: Getting Started).

    Settings for uTrackMe Beacon 2 (iPhone & iPad)
    uTrackMe is one of the supported EOTrackMe phone interface products. This program is to be used in conjunction with either an iPhone or iPad (with a GPS Receiver - may exclude some Wifi-only iPads).

    ExplorOz Members using uTrackMe with either their iPhone or iPad have the ability to publish their location in real-time to their very own EOTrackMe Map. uTrackMe supports full “store and forward” of data, meaning that your route can be stored when you do not have phone coverage and forwarded when service returns.

    uTrackMe can also be used with an iPod touch, however as these devices only have Wi-Fi connectivity, they will be limited to submitting data when a Wi-Fi connection is available.

    uTrackMe Beacon 2 is the latest version of the program download the FREE product from iTunes here.







    Once you have downloaded the program, click on Settings, then click on Server Settings and enter the following:

    URL: http://eotrackme.com/track/position.aspx
    USERNAME: Mxxxx (xxxx as shown left indicates your member number)
    PASSWORD: *leave this field blank - do not enter a password*
    Add to POST Data: ON
    Max Request Size: 200

    Then turn tracking ON or OFF from this settings page as required. If your phone is connected to a power source (eg a car charger), the default (free) app will log your position every 30 seconds while continuously moving, 15 minutes if stationary (until moving again). If your phone is using it's battery power only, it will log your position every 5 minutes while continuously moving, 15 minutes if stationary (until moving again). If you start moving after period of being stationary, and want to switch back into moving mode immediately, simply click on the "Refresh" button.





    In addition to the free settings, there are additional options available to purchase, these include:

    1.Customize Beacon $1.99
    2.Select Tracklog Section $2.99
    3.GPX File Export $1.99
    4.CSV File Export $1.99

    Customize Beacon (1) allows you to change the frequency at which points are logged, as well as desired accuracy and advanced GPS settings. However, the free version on the app features settings optimised for tracking while driving, so this option is not necessary for the majority of EOTrackMe users.

    Select TrackLog Section (2) is a view option, allowing you to view your tracking in-app on a basic map background, and GPX (3) and CSV File Export (4) allows you to export your tracking data in these file formats for use/analysis in other devices. These options are not needed for the majority of EOTrackMe users.
    Settings for Yellowbrick
    The Yellowbrick tracker is a rugged and fully self-contained battery operated tracker which works anywhere on Earth. The tracker will wake up every so often (e.g. every 15 minutes), obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to Yellowbrick HQ using the Iridium satellite network in seconds. The EOTrackMe server will pickup the position updates from Yellowbrick HQ and record, store and display the information.

    When you setup your Yellowbrick device you will be asked to designate a device name. Once you have done this, you need to email Yellowbrick at support@yellowbrick-tracking.com and request that they activate the XML feed for your device. Keep a record of your device name, as you will need this to register the device on EOTrackMe.
    • You will need to make sure you are logged in as a member and then click this link: Register Yellowbrick Device.
    • In the window that appears enter your device name and press OK.
    • The Yellowbrick device is now loaded into your account, go to your Members Public Profile or the My Tracking tab on the EOTrackMe page to complete the set-up
