Easy ways to get GPS Points
All ExplorOz Members have access to unlimited free downloads of GPS position data from ExplorOz Treks, User Treks, Places, and My Plans data, now available in CSV format, in addition to the existing GPX formats. This has been made specifically to help the less tech-savy make good use of the wealth of GPS data we have on ExplorOz. From feedback, we know some of you have trouble "importing" so this means you can get GPS data onto your GPS units without having to connect your computer to your GPS. Instead, you simply download the CSV file from our website, then open the file on your computer with Excel, Notepad, or any other software program that can open the CSV file format. This will give you the ability to view the positional data (GPS coordinates) in a document file on your computer screen. You can then print it, or enter the GPS points into your GPS manually, or just cross-reference to a map and compass.
