Edition 254: 2nd February 2012
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Find your next trip easier
Regular users of ExplorOz Trek Notes will notice an improvement to the way we now index all this great information. The Trek Notes index page now features a map of Australia with route lines. Click a State name in the right hand panel to expand the view to show the names of treks we provide for each state - hover over the trek name to highlight the position on the map or click to open the trek you've chosen.
How to use Trek NotesTrek Notes are real-life driving data enhanced with photos and text provided by our contributing trek note authors. The interactive map on the Trek Notes will allow you to follow the precise route using a Moving Map control. Take time to look closely at the Interactive Map and use the Moving Map control.
Open My Plans to check the files, and manually remove anything unrequired or go back to other treks or places to add more GPS data to My Plans. For Members, you can then batch download all the data you've hand-picked from across the site as all site GPS downloads are free for Members. Alternatively, just click "download trek" to bypass My Plans if that's all you want.
You can click "Add to My Plans" to automatically add all GPS data to your My Plans panel. |
