Newsletter 428


Edition 428: 1st April 2016

Hi ExplorOz Reader


EOZi is a "skin" designed to make the OziExplorer program easier to use on smartphones and tablets. Due to a recent update to OziExplorer for Android just 3 weeks ago (now V1.27), and subsequent feedback from an EOzi Android user, we have just updated EOZi Android to V3.2.22. There are two changes:
  1. Reconfiguration of SETUP button control in skin to allow Android users the ability to access all menu options (helpful for users of Samsung devices without the menu button)
  2. Colour change in TEXT overlay boxes from black to WHITE for improved contrast & readability
For existing EOZi owners - simply use the following promo code to obtain the update for 50% discount bringing the Member price to just $3 and the non-member price $5. Code is: EOZI_A_Upgrade.

NOTE: changes only affect the EOZi Android version. There is no update required for CE.


Follow ExplorOz Member John Olsen via EOTrackMe as he walks Australia diagonally (from Cape York to Cape Leeuwin), before a final short stroll to Perth to raise awareness and funds for Leukodystrophy Australia. John anticipates the Long Walk will take 5-6 months to complete.

John has already completed two crossings; the first, in 2004 (North to South) and the second, in 2008, (West to East and then 1,800 km home to Geelong on foot). John is believed to be the first (certainly solo and without support crew) to complete the diagonal crossing of Australia on foot.

This final Long Walk is also about John setting personal goals, but the primary purpose is to raise funds for Leukodystrophy Australia. John’s partner, Vida, died of the severe condition (that affects both children and adults) early in 2014 and so John is walking in Vida's memory.

Please tweet #wheresjohn in support, and if you see him, share some photos.

If you're a family on the road, there are tons of good reasons to use the Blogs facility on ExplorOz. Before we tell you why, let's explore the purpose you might blogging.
  • to keep personal memories about your trip of a lifetime
  • for ease of sharing stories & photos about your adventures with family/friends
  • because you enjoy the process of documenting and helping others via your experiences
Here's why ExplorOz Blogs are best for you:
  • Other blogging options come from dedicated hosting providers so it's up to you to find your audience but on ExplorOz, your blogs are hosted within a dedicated travelling community so you've already got your audience sorted.
  • Many people using ExplorOz get involved in communicating with one another through the Forum first as they plan their trip and get to use the various services on the site. This helps build relationships with other similar travellers to share ideas & get valuable information. Once you are a known Member, people are more likely to be interested in following you when you publish your blogs and will likely post comments in your blogs
  • ExplorOz Blogs allow you to automatically show an accurate map of your trip (via User Treks) within your blog making it more interesting and informative. Of course you can also include photos and video.
  • Blogs can be shared to any social media or you can lock your blog from public view if privacy is more your concern.
