Article Comment: ExplorOz Traveller

V3.6.0 is now available in both the Playstore (for Android) and the App Store (for iPad & iPhone) - Windows may take a few more days yet. In this version, we have made LOTS of updates, but importantly we have added NEW FEATURES. These are:-
* Private Place Groups
* Visual Prompts onscreen pop up for turn by turn (optional in settings)
* Additional zoom levels to offline map (now to Level 16 - but displays same data as in Level 13 - 144K, just enlarged via magnification)
* Zoom number shown in between +/- icons on map screen - also highlighted in red if showing an overzooom level
* Trek Directions screen now shows Turn by Turn driving notes
* Added ability to Edit & Delete Places directly from the pop-ups on map
* New map opacity slider tool available in nav mode in Nav Control Panel to provide better contrast between map background details and highlighted route
* Track Up mode - new option in Settings to re-position current position away off centre - select "Centre Offset" from Settings for current position to appear lower than centre
* Fully revised/updated Help Manual - both onboard in app and as pdf online from ExplorOz Traveller article page - see FAQ section.

Downloaded today from App Store with no hassles. Haven't tried any of the new features yet, but all looks good.

Cheers
Jim

Michelle,
Traveller V3.6.0 is supposed to have "Added ability to Edit & Delete Places directly from the pop-ups on map", but I can't see this.
My environment is iPad Mini 4, current IOS, current Traveller, all updates applied,
WiFi, using EOTopo offline.
If I click on a place icon on the map screen, I get a small popuop showing two options - Show and Go to. If I click Show, I get the full detail of the place but no option to edit or delete.
What am I missing?
Also, if I update place from the normal website, how long is it before that update is included in the downloads for Traveller?
Regards
Barry

HI Barry, Place Edit & Delete is only available for Private Places that you have made yourself. Once a Place is stored in the Public database you will no longer have access to edit/delete it - changes need to be actioned by a site administrator - you can flag any place to the administrators by opening the place on the website (the master public source) and clicking the button "Alert Admin".

The added ability to Edit & Delete Places directly from the pop-ups on the map in V3.6.0 was because previously you could only do it once you'd actually opened the whole Place page, so this saves a step and makes it much easier/quicker.
To answer your second question, if you update a place on the website, then that is live in the database so if you want to see that change in the the app then you need to update your Places database by going to the Data Manager in your app and pressing Update.

TIP: remember, the Places database used in the app is your offline copy that you obtain via the Data Manager - you can update this as often as you like to keep it in sync with the live public server master source.
