Hi everyone,
I’ve just recently joined and have a question regarding the white numbers that appear on the tracks?

Thanks in advance

Hi, you need to elaborate - white numbers on what maps? At a guess are you talking about the ExplorOz Traveller app or EOTopo? ...or some other "maps". Probably distances or highway numbers

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Hi Greg
I have added a photo of what I mean, the White 6. This from the Grampians NP Vic

Hope this helps, thanks

Hi frosty,

If it's Traveller you're talking about, then if the map is in Dark (night) mode the white numbers are kilometers for that segment of road. In normal day mode they are red on a white background.

You can adjust that in Settings/EOTopo 2021 under Dark Mode - either Off. On or Auto.

Cheers

Edit: You posted your screenshot as I was typing. It confirms what I said.
