MEMBERSHIP EXPLAINED

Over the year's we've made slight adjustments to our Membership subscription offering so here's a quick summary of what's on offer.

The cost of a 12 month Membership is $49.99. From time to time, we might advertise discounts on joining or renewing. The following services are offered exclusively only to Members:

TRACKING: The ExplorOz tracking service (EOTrackMe) can be utilised with almost any smartphone, tablet, computer or a SPOT satellite device. The tracking service consists of collecting position data and displaying your movements as a route line on a fully interactive 144K EOTopo map of Australia that is published on your private tracking page. It includes your overnight stops, current position etc. When offline, the app on your device still records tracking positions but stores this until a connection is reached and then sends updates so your map will catch up. Tracking can be saved, cleared, exported, or shared. Tracking is only available to Members and can be setup either via the ExplorOz Traveller App or our EOTrackMe app. More Info Here
BUY/SELL: The ExplorOz website has a Classifieds section specifically for you to list your pre-loved gear. When you create an ad, there are various types of ads to select from.
