Edition 439: 15th July, 2016

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

Did you know that on our website you can access a highly detailed FREE MAP of Australia that is ideal for 4WD and outback trip planning?

EOTopo online is a "vector-viewing" mapping environment that provides seamless zooming extracting maps at scales of 1:70,000,000 (70 Million) down to 1:144,000 (144K).

Don't forget to use the tool bar in the map panel to open the map in full-screen mode - allowing you the maximum use of your computer screen to display the map.
NOTE 1 : If you have previously bought EOTopo maps on SD/USB/Download then you've got a raster map extraction directly from this map source at a scale of 200K (1:200,000). Both our 200K raster map set and the EOTopo online mapset also show icons to indicate the position of Free Camps & Rest Areas, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds, Place Names, and Point of Interest POIs.

NOTE 2 : you can now also download the full EOTopo seamless scale mapset (scales from 70 Million to 144K) to your Android phone, tablet iPad or iPhone through our new ExplorOz Traveller App. This full range of EOTopo seamless maps is accessible to all app users when online. The full set of EOTopo maps can also be accessed offline if you have downloaded the Premium Offline Map Pack.

NOTE 3 : An additional feature of the maps in the Traveller App is that all Place Types are shown on the map and are active hotspots - meaning each waypoint can be clicked to view more information (includes crowd-sourced photos & comments) or be used as a navigation waypoint (GoTo).

Outback Travellers Guides

The Outback Travellers Track Guides offer a unique view of the roads and tracks throughout the Australian Outback. All of their map guides have an emphasis on 'safety' for 4 wheel drivers by indicating the location of grids, gates, floodways, creeks & rivers, crests, dips, markers, sharp bends, claypans, sand dunes, bridges through to bulldust holes and more. They use photographs to visually support specific features along the tracks, including GPS Co-ordinates and distances throughout. Both designated and bush camp sites are indicated along with geographical and historical locations, contact details, preparation and permit information. A total package for the outback traveller from 'first hand' experience, titles are available for 28 destinations. Buy Yours Now from ExplorOz

TIP 1: If you're using Track Logging, please note that by default your tracking is set with a privacy setting so no one else can view your tracking unless you enable this. To change your privacy settings, go to the ExplorOz website and log into your profile. View your public profile page and click on your device listed on the page - here you can disable the security key if desired, or obtain the link to send to a select group of family/friends (note you will also need to send them the password). If you disable your privacy settings your tracking will appear on the group Member Tracking page (although all personal details are still hidden - the only identity given is your ExplorOz Screen Name) and Geofence security areas remain active.

TIP 3: We are very pleased to hear so many positive comments from app users but would encourage you to post reviews into the respective app store where you purchased the app. This is the only way our app is ranked in the category. We'd love to see more reviews please!
