Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Here's news of what's on special, and what's been happening on ExplorOz.com over the past fortnight!
Shop Special Pricing!
Globalsat Bu-353 - Mouse GPS
|We've dropped the price of the Globalsat BU-353
from $60 to only $49.95! That's our lowest
price ever, so if you've been thinking about gettting started with
laptop navigation, now's the time. Already have one? At this price it's a
great idea to get a spare for your other vehicle or in case your
current unit is damaged. So what are you waiting for - buy yours today. |
Digital Map Starter Packs
To coincide with the BU-353 price reduction, our GPS & Digital Map Starter Packs have also been reduced, see the item page for current pricing.
Places Revamp in Progress
Recent changes to Places mean you can now enjoy a fresher layout that is more user-friendly and simple. See this example - Mindebooka Hill, WA. The main Places index page is currently unchanged, however we are working on upgrading the entire Places layout and search functions to provide you with a superior online experience.
Our Places database still remains the largest offering of free downloadable POIs for Australia - including GeoScience Australia data layers (by licence) and custom layers to suit outback travellers. What makes ExplorOz Places unique is that not only can you obtain the GPS position and altitude data, you'll get every bit of possible information available for that Place (description, address, phone, zoomable map (topo 250k, satellite, and streets), weather/climate station trends to help you plan ahead PLUS we let you upload photos, and write reviews/questions/comments to add your knowledge to this free public service.
ExplorOz thrives on the collective ethos in our community that fosters the sharing of knowledge and experience for the benefit of others, so please remember to put your photos, reviews, and comments into Places you've been.
New Feature in Forum
Many of our regular Forum users will have noticed that if a post appears to relates to existing content we've got elsewhere on the site (in Trek Notes, Articles or Shop) then a box with a link to that page will appear in the top right corner of the post.
We've now added a further option, which allows us to select relevant Places to link to your post in the same way.
Keep any eye out for these linked pages, as this is our way of guiding you to further information in other sections of the site.
