Function & Features

The ExplorOz Traveller App is a complete navigation and mapping system. It includes over 80,000 POIs in a Places database, 182 routes in a Treks database, street maps, satellite maps, and EOTopo maps (both online & offline), plus Track recording for EOTrackMe.

You can navigate to any Place or create custom Places that can be stored on your device as "Private" or uploaded to the database as "Public". You can build a route by compiling a group of Places in a navigation plan or follow a predefined route in a Trek. You can even start with a Trek and then modify to suit your needs.

Best of all, the app is very simple to use, has no ads, and you can retrieve updated data upon demand within the app. This is the first and only system that allows travellers to run our EOTopo maps without a third-party mapping software program and specifically assists iphone/iPad users gain easy access the ExplorOz bundle of offline navigation, mapping, and tracking tools.
