How to use this app

ExplorOz Traveller is an app that you download from the store and use on your phone, tablet, notebook or computer. You will have immediate access to maps of Australia - no download required when online (Wifi/mobile data) and you can download a Base Map of Australia for offline use. The app will automatically switch from online maps to offline if you lose internet connection. The app uses the GPS in your device to show your position on the map (both online and offline).

OFFLINE RESOURCES INCLUDED

The app includes access to download additional offline resources that add data to the map - one simple download will install a database containing 90,000 POIs for Places around Australia and 187 Trek Notes (routes). The app will automatically load the POIs and Treks and you'll be able to instantly use them in the map and for navigation. It's very easy to setup and takes all the hassle out of using complicated old-school navigation programs. These resources are constantly updated on our webserver so we give you free access to download a new copy of the database to your device anytime you wish - just use the Data Manager in the app!

The Place POIs include campgrounds, free camps, caravan parks, station-stays, hikes, lookouts, interesting sights, places to visit, shops, fuel, dump points, heritage sites, river crossings, 4WD destinations, aboriginal art sites, and much more. After installing the Places & Treks database, the POIs for all the Places will automatically appear on the map. If you click on the POIs icons you'll see the name of the Place and Type of Place - you can then click View to see photos, description, and reviews from other travellers. You can also add your own photos, and comments that will automatically sync back into the app for other travellers to benefit from.

NAVIGATION

There are 2 different ways to use the app for navigation:-

The first way is to use active navigation, simply by clicking any existing "Place" (POI/waypoint) marker on the map and click GoTo. The app will automatically begin a route calculation to guide you from your current position to this location.

The second way is to use Treks. Treks contain a series of POI/Places that have been prepared in advanced and saved for future use. You can open a Trek to view the saved driving directions, information text, view an overview of the route on the map. You can also use the GoTo button to start active navigation. The app includes 187 ExplorOz Treks that have already been prepared for you, but you can also create your own Treks - these are called Private Treks.

OFFLINE MAPS

In real-world use, you will go in/out service areas frequently during a trip - you don't have to travel far from a populated place in Australia for mobile service to drop out so you can expect to use the offline features of the app during any trip. For this reason we highly recommend that you need to download the full set of 5 offline EOTopo map packs, not just the Base Map but the 577K map pack and the 144K map packs. This will mean that if you are offline you will still have the optimum map detail required for navigation and exploring. The additional offline map packs require purchase of the EOTopo 2019 map licence (AU$49.99).

The app is ideal for times when plans change due to unforeseen circumstances and you don't reach your intended destination and need to make a rush plan for where is the nearest camp or services. If you're an experienced traveller, you will know that plans do and will change so this is great peace of mind knowing that ExplorOz Traveller can be your lifesaver when the chips are down!

The offline maps have been fully tested by our customers for many years - EOTopo has been in the marketplace since 2013 and has earned its reputation as a highly reliable, accurate and detailed topographic map that gives you the freedom to explore with confidence. Unlike many other publishers map, EOTopo is a true topographic map, which means you not only see roads, but you see contours, shaded relief, land boundaries, river crossings, and actual markings that show rocky escarpments of mountain ranges - this data gives you a very realistic way of knowing exactly what type of terrain lies ahead. Whilst many people like to use markers and POIs, the map already shows you exactly what actually exists so that you will be able to confidently predict suitable areas for finding your own free bush camps etc. Furthermore, EOTopo has been fully revised and updated (5 major updates released from 2013 - 2019). For more information about the EOTopo mapping used in the app, see the EOTopo webpage.

TRACKING

The app is always "tracking" when it is running - but what does this mean? The app automatically stores position data every 200 metres as you move (which is very accurate). The app uses this data within the app only but advanced features allow you to extract the data from the app if desired.

Snail Trail

This is a line that will appear on the map screen as you travel - showing the path you have travelled.

Track Logs

If you wish to store your Snail Trail you can use the "Save" option to save all visible Snail Trail data - this extracts data from the app and reformats it into a "Track Log". You can also use the Track Log Manager to select specific dates of past journeys - even if you've previously used the CLEAR Snail Trail option. The only way that position data can be extracted from the map screen or out of the app is when you manually create a Track Log. **New feature released 13/2/2020 - you can now load a Track Log into the map to "Follow". See User Manual for all instructions.

Live Tracker

Tracker is a feature only available to ExplorOz Members. Tracker is a Live Track Logging facility in the app that actively sends tracking data to your online account (when service is available) and displays a route line on a map (Server Map) to show the path you are actively driving. If there is no service, the app stores the information and sends it to the server later when you next get service. This is a popular tool for allowing family/friends to view your trip progress. The Live Server Tracking Map includes overnight stop locations etc. This map is password protected by default and you can setup privacy zones called Geofences. Alternatively, you change the default and make your Tracker Map "Public" which means no password is required to view your trip.

System Requirements

Total storage required for the app, including all offline resources and map packs is 4.38GB.
  • Places & Treks database requires 15MB internal storage
  • Comments database (optional) requires 20MB internal storage
  • Permission to use device storage and location services must be accepted for the app to operate correctly
  • Base Offline Map Pack requires 32MB storage (option to use SD)
  • EOTopo 2019 App Version (maps) requires 4.38GB storage in total if all 4 files installed (option to use SD)

Compatible Devices

The ExplorOz Traveller app is built for compatibility with Apple, Android and Windows devices.

Apple

Compatible Apple devices are iPad and iPhone only (not iMac or MacBook). Devices with older iOS software below iOS11 have had trouble with V3.9.12 but V3.10.0 fixes this (released Monday 6th January 2020).

Android

Compatible Android devices are Android tablets & Android phones of any make/model with at least the Android OS version 5 (Lollipop) and above.

Windows

Compatible Windows devices are only those running the Windows 10 operating system. For all devices, offline location services is only possible when offline if the device has a GPS receiver (either inbuilt or external). See notes below for GPS Requirements.

App Permissions

When you install the app you will be asked to accept the use of device storage (to enable you to install maps and offline content) and location services (to provide active mapping and navigation).

GPS Requirements

Your device will need a GPS in order to operate the full navigational features and offline services with the app. Most smartphones/tablets will have an inbuilt GPS but if not, you can connect an external GPS receiver (purchase separately).

If you use a Windows 10 device with an external GPS then you MUST ensure that you also configure Windows to detect the GPS unit as a Windows GPS Sensor. This is not possible without installing a tool such as GPS Complete (free download from https://www.gpssensordrivers.com/).

Internet Requirements

You will require an internet connection to purchase/install the app from your app store. You will also require an internet connection to install the offline maps and content, however once installed, internet connection is not required to use the app for active navigation, tracking or planning.

An internet connection is required to perform the following:
  • To refresh/update the offline database content (Data Manager)
  • To install any un-installed offline map packs (Data Manager)
  • To view any of the 3 online map options - Satellite, Streets & path, EOTopo online
  • To view your current server tracking map & tools on the Home Screen (Member only feature)
  • To sync to your account (the app will automatically sync any Private Places/Treks you have created in-app as soon as an internet connection is secured). Photos of Places that you’ve taken using the Capture button will also automatically sync, together with any Comments/Reviews in Places or Treks.
  • To obtain Driving Directions when building a nav plan. The driving time and distance will be calculated using internet based data that stores the conditions for each road. If the points are not routable, try changing mode to Cycle or Walk. Use the SAVE option to keep your nav plan for later use. Saved nav plans are stored in the app as your Private Treks, which can be used offline to provide auto route-guidance.

Support Help

Live Chat is generally available Monday - Friday between the hours of 8.30am - 3.30pm. We are located in Perth, Western Australia, which operates on GMT+8 (WST). If we are busy taking other chats, you will be prompted to leave a message. Please do so and we will get back to you asap.
Before contacting us for support, please ensure you have checked the FAQs below.
Any problem READ THIS FIRST
Most problems will be solved via the following:-

1. Check you have the latest version of the app. If your problem is due to a bug in the app, chances are its already been fixed in a newer version that is already available. To check for an update go to the ExplorOz Traveller app listing in the app store you use - an Update button will appear if the store detects your device doesn't have the latest version. DO NOT UNINSTALL

2. Close/Restart app. Some problems resolve themselves with an app reboot but not unless you are doing it properly. If you have an iPad or iPhone you have to double tap the Home button on your device, then swipe up on the ExplorOz Traveller app card to close the app. If you have an Android device, you have to press the button that shows all apps currently open (bottom left on Samsung) and then swipe left or right on the ExplorOz Traveller app to close it. On Windows you use the TaskView button and tap the X in the top right corner. When you re-open the app after it has been properly closed, it gets a reboot and flushes out any lags or potential for operating glitches. DO NOT UNINSTALL

3. Log off/Log on. Some problems resolve themselves if you log off, then log back in. Go to User Account and press the button to Log off. If you have any Log in issues, go to the ExplorOz website and check you can log in there successfully. You can locate a Forgot Password link on the website Login screen, and you can view your password, or change any account details on the website in your online account. DO NOT UNINSTALL

4. Restart your device - ie. power off the device and shut down/restart. Most tablets/phones do not like being left running for long periods of time without a restart and this is a good thing to do periodically as it can clear out cache and flush out any device-related bugs that might be affecting your app performance. DO NOT UNINSTALL

5. If the above does not work please read the FAQ sections listed below for further assistance. DO NOT UNINSTALL
GPS problems with iPads
If you have an iPad without in built GPS you'll need to connect a Bluetooth GPS to get location services when you are offline, AND you'll need to adjust a setting in the App to make the GPS accessible to the app, other wise you will get a message "this device is not supported by this iPad" and your app will continuously disconnect your GPS and prompt you to keep resetting it.

Instructions as follows:-
Go to the app's HOME SCREEN and select - ADVANCED in the settings & about section. Then open up the Geolocation Settings area and select the pausesLocationUpdatesAutomatically and make this setting False by touching the word false.

With this setting changed to False you are effectively turning off a battery saving movement detection feature that is not supported with external GPS units connected to the iOS devices.
GPS Setup on Windows Laptops
The Windows version of the app requires that your GPS is supported in Windows as a Location Sensor. Most Serial/USB or Bluetooth GPS receivers are not automatically configured as Windows sensors so you will have to install another piece of software before the app will detect your location.
Go to https://www.turboirc.com/gps7/ and download this free tool called GPS Complete. You can download and run this product in evaluation mode.

Note: this tool has two options, called Direct & Reverse.

If you only want to use Windows 10 Store apps (eg. ExplorOz Traveller) with the GPS then you only need the Direct product. However, if you need to use the GPS with other programs that aren't apps (such as OziExplorer by D&L Software) then you will also need the Reverse product as well as Direct so download the Bundle. But don't worry these programs are FREE.

Direct connects the GPS to Windows 10 and Reverse then makes another Serial port from the Direct connection. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any further support for this tool as we are not the developer of the GPS Complete software.
Licence for App on Multiple Devices
Purchase of the ExplorOz Traveller app is done using your Google, Apple, and Microsoft accounts. A purchase of the app from either of these stores is independent of the other stores, which means cross-platform licencing is not possible. However, each app store supports family sharing and multiple device downloads so you can download to multiple devices supported by the store you purchase from, but a purchase of the app from one store does not permit a free download from the other stores.

NOTE: map licences are different. You will only ever need 1 EOTopo App Version map licence. Use the same ExplorOz login (User Account) when you open the app and you can then install maps on your multiple devices (includes cross-platform). Maps can only be installed via the Data Manager within the app, they do not work if you try to install an SD card from one device to another device.
Licence for Offline Map (EOTopo) on Multiple Devices
You can purchase a map licence for EOTopo direct from us (via our shop on our website) OR in-app (paid to app store). Your licence is recognised when you log in to the app where you can download each of the additional map packs (577K, 144K East, 144K Central, 144K West) to your device.

If you wish to have the maps on multiple devices (eg. phone, tablet, iPad, laptop) you can do so with only the 1 EOTopo map licence as the maps are not specific to platform. However, the map can only be installed via the Data Manager in the ExplorOz Traveller app - you cannot move files across SD cards. This means you also need the ExplorOz Traveller app on each device. (See notes above Licence for App on Multiple Devices).

NOTE: If you ever need to change devices, or delete maps, your EOTopo map licence is recognised via your ExplorOz account login, which enables you to download map packs anytime you need. This gives you the flexibility to delete maps, and download again as often as required to suit your individual needs.
Map Licence Problems
Check your User Account to ensure you have the 2019 licence (green tick). If you have purchased the licence but it is not appearing in the User Account then there has been a purchasing error with your account and the licence has not linked to the User Account you are using within the app. To check this, look at the User ID in your User Account - then log into the ExplorOz website - open the Home Page of the website and under the video promo you will see MY APP CONTROL PANEL - this will verify the licences that linked to the account you are using on the website

If you have a mismatch, please click Account in the top right of the website, and you will see MY ACCOUNT STATS - this shows your User ID.

If you have a mismatch, please send an email to traveller@exploroz.com quoting the two mismatched User IDs and your preferred account. Please do not expect a response after hours or on weekends.
Map Upgrade Process to EOTopo 2019
The EOTopo 2019 App Version map licence is available to existing "ExplorOz Traveller Premium Offline Maps" owners at the discounted rate of only $25 BUT ONLY if purchased on the ExplorOz website and ONLY if you enter the promo code EOTOPOAPPUPGRADE in the shopping cart and successfully see this discount applied to your order.

The discount IS NOT offered via the app store. The purchase option in the app will not take you to the ExplorOz website but uses your app store account.

After purchase of the EOTopo 2019 map licence you will see a green tick for the 2019 maps licence shown in your User Account. You will still need to install the maps to your device. This is done in the Data Manager however first you will need to delete all the EOTopo offline maps from your device. You can do this individually using the Data Manager, or you can go into Advanced and press Clear DB Maps for a one-button delete. This is recommended if you have all maps installed. After the 2018 maps are deleted the Data Manager will display the download buttons for each of the 2019 map packs.

IMPORTANT: check you have updated to the latest version of ExplorOz Traveller before attempting to install maps as if you have an older version (below V3.7) your device will not be able to access the 2019 map server. In addition, some older Android devices (ie. below Android 5), will not be able to update the ExplorOz Traveller app beyond V3.1), which means you cannot access the 2019 maps until you get a newer device.
Message in Playstore - This app may not be optimised for your device
If you have an Android device and see the message "This app may not be optimsied for your device" you might feel concerned however we have discovered that this message seems to appear occasionally in the Playstore, despite there being no reason for it. If you see this message, you can ignore it and continue to purchase/download/update the app as usual.
Missing Map Data
If you have missing map data when ONLINE this is due to an internet drop out during the download of the map tiles to your screen - simply zoom the map to refresh a new map tile download to fix this.

If you have missing map data when OFFLINE go to the Data Manager and check the tile counts for each map pack are as follows, if not, press the download button again (if available), but if you don't have a download option, you will need to delete your maps first and then download again.

MAP TILE COUNTS - EOTOPO 2019

Base Pack: 5365
577K Pack: 58804
144K East Pack: 279,265
144K Central Pack: 254,047
144K West Pack: 347,448
Promo Code Problems
If you have previously purchased EOTopo (either the full Raster licence from any past version 2013, 2014, 2015, or 2018, or the 2018 Premium ExplorOz Traveller Offline Maps) then you are entitled to a discounted purchase of the new updated 2019 maps. This discount is only available via the shop on the ExplorOz website.

If you are having problems with codes not being accepted then please check you are using the right code for the product you are purchasing:

EOTOPOAPPUPGRADE - this is the promo code to use when buying the EOTopo 2019 App Version map licence

EOTOPOUPGRADE - this is the promo code to use when buying the EOTopo 2019 Raster Version map licence

After entering the promo code in the field as prompted in the shopping cart, you should press either Tab or Enter and see the discount applied.

If you don't qualify for the discount, the promo code will be rejected. You must be logged into the shop using the same ExplorOz user account that owns the EOTopo licence. The system automatically checks your past purchases on this account to validate your promo code. If the promo code is rejected you do not have a valid past purchase with the user account you are using.
Purchase Problems
For any issues related to the purchase, download, or install of the app you must refer to your app store directly as we do not receive access to any customer accounts or transactions.

We do not have access to check your store purchase transactions as you will be using your Google account, Apple account, or Microsoft account to make the app purchase.

*NOTE: if you purchase the EOTopo map licence in-app, this transaction is also made with your app store account.

Alternatively, you can purchase the EOTopo map licence directly from us by visiting the ExplorOz website and going to our Shop. The EOTopo 2019 App Version map licence is the same price to you whereever you purchase, however buying direct from us means the app store does not take its cut out first.
