To many of us, going Four Wheel driving or camping is a way of life now. With the constant improvements in technology, we are now able to share a wealth of information from our trips for others to look at and enjoy.

Google Earth is one of those ways that we can share these experiences by looking at the earth from above. For anyone who has a computer, its a simple matter of going to any search engine and typing in "Google Earth". Download it to your PC and open it. You can then type in your GPS WAYPOINTS or look on here in Explore-Oz in the places list to get a view on the area from above. You can Zoom in/out and tilt if you wish. You can also rename these places and save them for further viewing.

There is also a PAY version ($20 ) whereas you can connect your own GPS and it will download your waypoints for you (Garmin and Magellan) at this time.

With Explore-Oz and Google Earth, it will enhance your knowledge of the world.

The difficulty appears to be that you need a broadband connection, and they aren't universal.

Dont use google earth, the Nasa developed WorldWind is the original before google ripped them off. WorldWind has higher resolution and a much smarter program all round. Stuff paying money, Worldwind has FREE GPS.
