4WD maps on iPhone & iPad
Business Member Advertorial
Got an iPhone or iPad? Why not turn it into a powerful Off Road GPS with the VMS 4X4 Navigation app. Bundled with comprehensive Off Road maps, it’s packed with great features for navigating off the beaten track.
Our users often comment that what sets the VMS app apart from other navigators they’ve owned is just how easy it is to use. With gorgeous graphics & all the features you’d expect from a premium GPS, it truly is the next generation in Off Road Navigation. You can also use the app to share where you’ve been. The app can record your trips & they can be shared for viewing on any computer. Look for yourself, it’s all in 3D! Available from the iTunes App Store

New Options for Blogging On the Road
When you're travelling, you now have 2 options for writing your blogs on ExplorOz.com...
- Create an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org - this works for iPhones too as your phone will store/send. This method means you don't need to connect to the internet to publish your blog.
- Or, wait till you have access to a computer/ with an internet connection, click "Create New Blog", then upload a document you've created offline (eg. Word) using the "Add Images & Files" button.
More Display Ads FREE for Members
We have just changed the allocation of FREE Member benefits to now give our Members unlimited free "Display Ads" in the ExplorOz Classifieds (previously one per Membership year). Display Ads are normally $19.95, so this is a valuable new benefit!
Upgrade to Membership today.
Updates in Progress
With the increase in "Review" contributions, we've seen the need to develop a better look/feel to the Review tool, and with it we're working on layout changes to integrate this better in the Shop and all site pages. We're also making an effort to redesign the Classifieds, and improve the presentation of related shop items that appear embedded within article and trek note pages.
We're also removing the entire GoDo Activity Booking engine (shown as Book Now advertisements) and in it's place you'll have listings from our Business Members shown as Page Sponsor advertising (using our new system).
