Edition 431: 28th April 2016

Hi ExplorOz Reader,


If you're registered for online tracking via EOTrackMe, then the easiest way to help your family/friends find your tracking page is to send them a link to your Member Profile Page. All they need to do is click on the section labelled "My Tracking" to view your tracking map with overnight stops etc.

To find your Member Profile page in one easy step, simply click Profile in the top right corner of the website. Then click "View Profile". That will open your Member Profile Page. You can then copy/paste the web address (url) of the page and send in an email to your family/friends advising them to check your tracking, whist you are away.


1. Don't forget to use the SAVE or CLEAR functions in EOTrackMe to ensure you start/end fresh tracking logs for each trip. In fact, each time you SAVE tracking you will be prompted to create a User Trek - thus you give it a generic name as it will appear published on the site for others to lookup (in User Treks). Your saved tracking logs are easily found by going into your My User Treks.

2. You can also edit track routes once they are saved as User Treks. This means you can fix any logging errors or take out parts that you don't want included.

3. Once you have created a User Trek you can add your photos of Places along the way. Geo-referenced photos will pop-up on your tracking map exactly where the Places are located (ie. pics taken with GPS data, such as from your phone).

4. Embedding a User Trek into a Blog is the ideal way to publish your trip to give others the full lounge-chair experience to enjoy your adventure.

5. We recommend using the Save feature frequently during your big trips to split your tracking into more manageable sections.

6. Here is a Site Help blog with more information about creating user treks - Site Help Blog.
