Edition 177: 19th March 2009

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

The ExplorOz Shop have been busy adding shop items over the past fortnight, to ensure that we have everything you need for the upcoming Easter break. There are some great newCronin’s Key Guide books for nature lovers, additional Eflare Safety Beacons for any tricky situations you may face, a new Gregory’s 4WD book filled with short getaway ideas, a special limited edition Len Beadell Collection to help inspire you while you travel, and a new ExplorOz Sun Hat - Khaki available.

If you wish to submit feedback after reading an article ortrek note, you have the choice to send it to theforum or the ExplorOz team. Generally, most feedback should go to the forum for further discussion, and this will also ensure the feedback is shown in the article or trek note for others to read. Those that wish to submit feedback to the ExplorOz team only - should therefore place a tick in the ‘Visibility’ checkbox.

We receive many emails where registered users have replied to an automatically generated forum reply or follow-up notification. These emails only notify you that you received a reply/follow-up - therefore any response needs to be done via theforum. Also, we are seeing new forum posts that continue or thank someone from a previous post. We prefer if these are kept together in the one post by placing a follow-up to their useful reply within the original post.ExplorOz Members have further tools to consider using such as Member Messaging, Thread Watch, and View Updates in members My Home.

With our highly ranked position in search engines such as Google, we receive many phone calls originating from product searches that were only pointing to discussion pages within ourforum. Although we promptly direct the relevant calls to advertisers in our directory - unfortunately most queries are not relevant and go no further. If you have a business, please consider our search engine rank, and the benefits of advertising in our directory.Business Membership is easy to setup online and starts from just $60.

We have finally started work on the next generation of iMapPlot with the goal of providing a better interactive map experience, the ability to create your own routes, improved outback routing coverage and eventually - user treks. We will keep you posted as developments continue but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy our new route profiler in Driving Directions andPlaces.

 

The route profile graph reveals the maximum and minimum gradient levels. This elevation data is very accurate - obtained from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM).

Special note to our Lifetime Members – due to a programming delay we have not yet installed the automatic feature to enable Lifetime Members to use more than 1 of their allocated 5 free Display ads in the ExplorOz trader. Until this program has been upgraded you will need to contact our office (either by phone or email) for a manual update of your member record before you can load another Members Free Display ad.
