ExplorOz Traveller + EOTopo App Description

ExplorOz Traveller is a navigation app designed for use in Australia. The app includes maps, routes, & POIs but also allows you to add more. USER ACCOUNT You can use multiple devices sharing the same ExplorOz User Account. Access to Track Logging and Offline Map downloads is managed via the User Account. The app will also allow private data (Private Places, Private Treks) to be synced between all devices using the same user account. ONLINE & OFFLINE RESOURCES The app features a Data Manager with download buttons for the offline resources (Places, Treks, Comments, Offline Maps). Once these are downloaded, the resources are seamlessly integrated giving you a wealth of information without the hassle. New updates for resources are provided free. MAPS Maps are included for the whole of Australia. The app features a simple option to view/switch maps from 3 different sources: 1. EOTopo maps are available both online and offline 2. Streets & Paths maps - online only 3. Satellite maps - online only The map screen will automatically switch to display offline EOTopo when service is disconnected. OFFLINE MAPS The app provides active navigation without the need for internet but requires GPS to obtain and display position data (Location Services). Please note that Wifi only iPads do not have inbuilt GPS so a Bluetooth GPS would need to be connected. It is intended that app users will download the Premium Offline Map pack to enjoy the most detailed maps to a zoom of Level 14, which is a scale of 144K. If you don’t have an EOTopo or Premium Offline Maps license, you will only be able to download the Offline Base Map. This base map covers the whole of Australia at a scale of 1:2.3 million. 24MB download, requires 39MB storage space. The Premium Offline Maps license is an additional AU $49.99 and can be purchased in-app or from the ExplorOz website. The Premium license activates the 4 additional download buttons in the Data Manager for the higher resolution offline maps. NAVIGATION The map displays the Places data as Overlay options. There are 8 types of Places – Camps & Accom, Geography, Infrastructure, Heritage, Population, Recreation, Reserves, & Services. Clicking these markers allows activation of the "Go To" navigation control. Whilst nearly 90,000 Places are included, you can add Places of your own as required. Navigation along any a Trek is also as simple as clicking “Go To”. This loads all the Places along the route you’ll need and includes distance between points, travel time between points and the ability to customise the Trek in your Nav Plan by removing or inserting Places. Both Private Places and Private Treks are stored in your User Account and can be synced to your other devices in-app. AUTO-ROUTING With an internet connection you can build auto-route guidance for Place to Place navigation. These routes can be saved as Private Treks. Any Trek can be used for guided navigation when offline. SNAIL TRAIL You can activate the Snail Trail feature as an overlay feature in the map. This draws a line on your map showing the path you travel. The Snail Trail will continue to record and display until you clear it. TRACK LOGGING (MEMBER SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED) Track Logging is a background feature that operates when the app is running and tracking is enabled. Position data is collected in real-time and stored in your device. When your device is online, position data is synced to your online account. A map showing your server tracking is displayed for your convenience on the home screen of the app and on the ExplorOz website (based on your security settings). This allows family/friends to view your tracking map as you travel. Server tracking data can be archived, saved and displayed in your account as a Trek. The data from these Treks can be downloaded in various file formats such as GPX, OziExplorer etc. BATTERY USE Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.

  • Great for remote travel

    By Spondernink
    Great app and in conjunction with the EO toppo high resolution maps is all the mapping needed for remote travel. The inbuilt access to the Explore Oz database of treks and places along with the ability to record routes taken and the ability to have up to date or cached route uploaded to web mapping, when in cellular range, for friends and family to follow the progress of a trip. I was even able to get full functionability using an external bluetooth GPS, on a WiFi only iPad, after receiving prompt support from EO development team giving clear and easy directions on how to modify settings from within the app itself. Love the whole package.. Monty
  • A good app to understand and use

    By peterg1
    I have always believed with apps, that if I can not use the app intuitively within 5 minutes..then I trash it. This is not one of those type of navigation, explore GPS apps you need a manual and a heap of patience to use. It is within a few minutes you can understand the processes of this app and how to use it. It needs some polishing.. it can be expensive to get some in app purchases to gain more detail..but the upgrades are fluid and the body of the app does not lose its simplicity. Quite a good navigation app.
  • Good but...

    By RC1952
    It is a good app with a number of nice features Would like to see better trip planning options and the ability to export and import GPX files When making a trip it goes well if going to/through known places but when you have to create new places to plot your trip it is very messy and difficult to manipulate.
  • Change the GPS options...

    By Harps182
    If GPS settings in iOS are not set to allow the app constant knowledge of your location it will annoyingly provide a pop up telling you so - every single time you flick between it as an active or background app. Please give users the option to disable this pop up and I will revise my assessment as a 1 star app.

  • Log in problems and no app support available

    By Rigovanmeer
    I bought the app a few days ago and encountered persistent log in problems. There seems to be an encryption and decryption problem. So far I have been unable to log in and use the app. I have sent numerous emails and requests for assistant to the info@exploroz address provided, but so far have not received any reply. An very expensive app but no support.
  • Great product and user friendly

    By Clbboss
    Good offline abilities and potential to add your own updates and pictures
  • Needs a lot of work

    By Seacau
    I'd keep your money if I was you. All this information is available for free on the website. The only bonus is this is offline however I find that the most of the treks you're undertaking off this site you should have done your research first. It lacks a lot of things like pictures of the treks and the ability to refine tracks by state. Even view treks on a map so you can plan a trip. Keep your money or invest in the hema explorer app for half the price.
  • Great App

    Very easy to use, great for tracking routes taken.
