ExplorOz General Newsletter 476

17th May 2018

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

Since our last newsletter, we've received a lot of enquiries from new users seeking clarification about our maps, our app, and Membership so in this newsletter we've compiled an ExplorOz FAQ on all these issues.

We've also got news about the latest Redarc product up for grabs in our regular Member Prize Draw, along with news about the release of EOTopo to Memory-Map users, which includes a request for your input please.


Once again we have another Redarc power prize giveaway with a next generation 12v, 25 amp, in-vehicle battery charger - the BCDC1225D (RRP $680) on offer. Built in Australia, trusted for its Australian design and tested for our unique conditions, the next generation 25 amp model in-vehicle battery charger, the BCDC1225D, has extras that make it the most advanced product on the market: Solar input built-in, charges from solar and the alternator simultaneously with Green Power Priority, works with all standard and variable voltage alternator types and charges all major lead acid batteries and now includes a lithium charging profile. All this from a dual battery charger that is designed and tested to keep batteries fully charged…no bull. For more information visit Redarc.com.au

To be in the draw to win a Redarc power prize just make sure you don't miss your Member subscription renewal payment before your Membership date expires. Alternatively, become a Lifetime Member and you'll be entered into every draw.


EOTopo 2018 will not be released as expected through the Memory-Map Digital Map store. Whilst Memory-Map users may be disappointed to hear this news, we have managed to successfully negotiate a possible solution for you. However, at this stage, we are not sure if it's what consumers would want so we're asking for input from current Memory-Map users.

The only way that we can roll out EOTopo to Memory-Map users is by adding the Memory-Map proprietary "qct" file format to the EOTopo downloads page so that it is included in the purchase of a full EOTopo map license. However, in order to successfully install the map files (as 3rd party maps) into the Memory-Map app you may have further additional costs payable to Memory-Map as follows:-

For those that have already purchased a map from MMap the cost of activating the license to "Install 3rd party maps" is US$20 for 1 device or US$50 for 5 devices. For anyone not buying a map from MMap the cost is US$99.

So if you're a Memory-Map user, please let us know what you think of this solution. Based on responses, we will consider if there is enough support to proceed.

Please don't reply to this newsletter. Send your emails to info@exploroz.com addressed to Michelle with the subject "EOTopo qct map files".


The following is a summary of critical facts relating to ExplorOz maps (EOTopo), the ExplorOz app (ExplorOz Traveller) and Membership.

  • The full EOTopo license enables you to download all versions of the offline maps. This is purchased direct through our online shop here. This option is for people that want the flexibility to use the raster maps in other navigation software, not just our app.
  • The ExplorOz Traveller Premium Offline Map Pack can also be purchased directly through our online shop OR you can buy it as an in-app purchase. The price is the same.
