Edition 209: 25th June 2010
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
The time has almost come - After months of planning, the ExplorOz National Gathering is finally upon us. For those lucky enough to be attending, drive safely
and enjoy! Those unable to attend, be sure to follow the progress of your fellow ExplorOz Members using EOTrackMe. David and Michelle's trip will be visible on EOTrackMe as they head to the National Gathering in Wiluna then head up the Canning
Stock Route. View their EOTrackMe Map HERE.
ExplorOz Blogs Go Mobile!
Last fortnight we released Mobile Place updates - This week, we have taken it one step further! ExplorOz Members are now able to update their Blogs while on the
road. Based on the same principle as Mobile Place updates, all you need is a GPS enabled phone (such as
an iPhone, Blackberry etc) and to send your photos and text
to our new email service. This new feature goes hand in hand with EOTrackMe. Family and friends can track your journey using EOTrackMe whilst at the same time viewing images and text on your Blog. And the best bit -
You don't even need a computer! The following Site Tips Blog contains
a step by step guide for this new service - Click HERE.
