Trying to locate the desktop Traveller App in my account.

I'm logged in & using Chrome. I can't see the MyApp control panel & I don't know if I qualify?

I've purchased a copy of the Traveller app for iOS.

If I don't qualify, how do you qualify?

Thanks Dick L, I just had to look a little harder. This looks very useful.

The access to the system is on the platform you use, ie, iOS, therefore it is available in the Apple side of things. My understanding is it isn't available on Android device or PC based if iOS was used to download the app and maps. That is one of the specified limitations flagged in the reading before purchase.

I am using a Windows laptop to type this but it cannot access the Android related downloaded App and Maps. Maybe I am wrong!

Hi RMD, No Dick L listed the steps above. I purchased the app for iOS but am accessing the desktop app on my Windows laptop, it's browser based so is OS independent.

In the current newsletter:

If you're an ExplorOz Member with a licence for Traveller purchased from one of the app stores, then you're in luck!
We have decided to give you exclusive access to a special desktop version of the Traveller app to allow you more flexibility with the devices you use for trip planning and research (not for active navigation). For some people this will be appealing as you aren't restricted by the existing store-platform licence you have. You will simply open the app from a webpage using Chrome, Edge or Opera as the browser. (Not compatible with Safari or Firefox).

For most people the advantage will be access to use a larger monitor/screen attached to a desktop computer (Mac or PC) for planning purposes.
Remember - you can only access the web-version if you have a purchased app-store version of the app (any platform) and an ExplorOz Member account. If you don't have the ExplorOz Traveller app - maybe now is the time? For full details see the Traveller webpage here.
The desktop app is not platform specific, does not work offline, and the GPS and tracking features have been removed so it cannot be used for active navigation but can be used for planning. You'll be able to login to your ExplorOz account, use the Data Manager to access your Personal Places, Treks and Track Logs, and be able to create new Personal Places, lookup Addresses, create navigation plans with turn-by-turn and save them as Personal Treks for later use on your other device/s.
To open the ExplorOz Traveller Desktop App - ensure you have one of the supported browsers installed on your Mac or PC computer and then go to the ExplorOz Traveller webpage. Check that you are logged in to your account and open the MyAppControl Panel. If you qualify, you'll be able to successfully click the OPEN button and the web-app will launch for you.
