Checked out OziExplorer after seeing it on the forum.Can navigate now ok but a moving map display would be good for 'wank' value . Does anyone know where map info can be downloaded. I dont have a scanner and only recently have conquored the confuser ( computer ).

Glenn,

You'll find you'll have to purchase the maps - for example Hemas Great Desert Tracks, NatMap's 250k (whole of Aust at 1:250,000 scale) etc.

First point of call you could look at the CD maps at the "Shop" on this site.

Glenn – OziExplorer is used by many individuals/groups/companies for just a tad more than *ank value – Bit like 4WD’s…I suppose the rating you give it is based on your perceptions and requirements – Anyway…If you’re chasing decent scale/quality digital maps for download don’t expect to much for free - as suggested previously you'll have to fork out a few dollars. The ExplorOz site is obviously a good start and also the OziExplorer website provides a few links to on-sellers of digital maps…

and if you’re half serious about using OziExplorer try the user group – a knowledge base that exceeds all others (+3000 members…..now that’s a lot of *ank..i.e. dont enter without Gumboots)

Cheers

Ps don’t forget to carry a compass and a paper copy of all your maps in case your computer/PDA/GPS dies:)))

Glenn,

So far you've only been pointed back to OziExplorer related sites.

Here are some that are actually out there, which may be of use.

Free downloads general interest maps
http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/index.html

Govt mapping suppliers
http://www.hydro.gov.au/
http://www.dola.wa.gov.au/
http://www.ga.gov.au/map/

Commercial suppliers
http://www.maptrax.com.au/

General Searches
http://www.google.com.au/ Try searching for australia maps

There are lots more sites. You'll have to search for them. However most downloadable maps of any detail or quality will be for purchase only. You have to remeber that a lot of work goes into map preparation and the publishers expect a return on there efforts.

Oh one more site worth looking at http://www.exploroz.com/
