Edition 217: 15th October 2010
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
ExplorOz Places now features the NEW MyPlans function! MyPlans enables all registered users (Visitors + Members) to create a personalised and fully customisable trip plan - using our digital data (combine
Driving Directions + EOTrackMe routes + any Place). It's so easy, all you do is look out for the "Add to MyPlans" link on any Trek Note, Place or Driving Directions route to automatically build a list of items in MyPlans. MyPlans can be saved and downloaded. If you download MyPlans, you'll end up with customised route and waypoint files that can be opened in OziExplorer or sent to your Hema Navigator. As the system is still in its infancy we would appreciate our valued registered visitors and members giving all the new features a test run so we are able to iron out any bugs. A full video tutorial is in the process of being created and will go live in the coming weeks. In the mean time, fire up ExplorOz.com and give our new Places systems a go!

Broken Hill Wildflowers
The countryside surrounding Broken Hill
has exploded into life, putting on the most amazing wildflower display seen in
Outback NSW for Decades, featuring the extremely rare white Sturt Desert Peas in

the Corner Country heading into the Sturt National Park, so get out there before
the heat of summer kicks in.
