Dear Members,
I am travelling around Aus in April and have been looking for any travel Apps that may would assist myself and the family in our travels. I thought this would be the place place to ask.You are all so helpful and knowledgeable.
I have an app called Oz Road Trip and have found ito be very good for $4.95.
Another App called Star Map is fantastic for anyone interested in the stars and the planets. All you have to do is hold up your i pad or phone towards the sky !
Can you recommend any others ?
Thanking You,

You probably need to tell us what device you are using iPhone, iPad, Android?

I always make sure that I have loaded all my user manuals onto my iPhone and iPad. These include UHF Radio Manual, HF Radio Manual, HEMA Navigator Manuals, Camera Manuals and so on. This saves a lot of space and will get you out of trouble if you forget a paper copy manual.

If you relax at a faster pace you can get more relaxation in for a given time.

Hi Michael,
One app that I have downloaded to my iPhone from iTunes is "uTrackMe", and is supported by "EO TrackMe", details can be found here ... EO TrackMe

The app I think is free, but if not it certainly didn't cost too much!

The iphone apps i regularly use when travelling are

Sygic (GPS navigation - much cheaper than Tom Tom)
Pkt Weather (forecasts)
RainRadarAU (bom radars)

First Aid (St John ambulance quick reference guide)
PhotoCaddy (quick reference for manual DSLR camera settings)

Flashlight (you need this to find your real torch)
Navionics (good when on the water - fishing charters etc)
Altitude (interesting to use when driving)

Geocaching (treasure hunts for the kids everwhere - anytime)
Star Walk (same as star map - but much cheaper)

I use the twitter app to track FESA, Police Media, MBRC Disaster Management etc for major events - bush fires, flooding, road closures etc.

Have fun

We don't leave home without Memory Map. A bit pricey, but have not unfolded a paper map since.

You find a need to scan and/or email a document after signing in which case cam scanner is very good. Saves in jpeg or PDF. Also look at weatherzone and google sky maps.
