Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Happy New Year from the ExplorOz team! We hope you all had a wonderful break over the holidays, whether that meant staying close to home with family and friends, or getting out on the road.
The ExplorOz offices re-opened on the 3rd of January, and we've spent the past few days responding to any enquiries that came in over the break, so if you sent us an email over this time, check your inbox and you should find a response. Also, over the past week we've received the first few deliveries of some fantastic new products to be released this year, so keep reading for more information on what's new.
Raster 250k New Zealand Mapping
This is the first ever New Zealand product to be added to the ExplorOz Shop, with more to be added in the upcoming weeks. The Raster 250k New Zealand - DVD contains both a 250k Scale Mosaic Map of New Zealand, as well as 31 individual 250k maps, all maps are provided in both OZF (OziExplorer) and ECW (Trackranger, TwoNav & GIS) formats. This is the perfect product if you're planning to use digital maps on your laptop or a Hema Navigator to navigate around New Zealand, and at only $25 (or $23.75 for members) is also fantastic value!
