New ExplorOz travel app makes trip planning easier
Popular web-based outback traveller resource ExplorOz is now more accessible to travellers than ever, with a new app for Apple and Android devices.
Once downloaded on to a tablet or smartphone, the ExplorOz Traveller App provides remote area mapping and travel advice even when you’re offline.
The ExplorOz Traveller app ranks popular tracks according to difficultly for better decision making in unfamiliar terrain, and provides offline auto-routing for trips like the Canning Stock Route, Simpson Desert and Cape York.
Routes include track photos, vehicle recommendations, places of interests, campsites, permit needs, fuel usage estimates and advice on where to fill up.
Street, satellite and the renowned EOTopo maps, bundled with Australia’s largest verified Points of Interest list authored by remote area travellers – just like yourself – provide seamless navigation with sophisticated zoom controls.
And if you like to explore offroad terrain, the optional Premium offline map pack provides detailed contoured views of 4WD tracks and walking trails.
The app, through the optional Track Logger, can also record and plot your movements on a separate map for live viewing, sharing or saving so that family and friends know where you are.
The Traveller app retails for $59.99, the Premium Map Pack for $49.99 and Track Logger for $29.99 - all are available from the Apple and Android app stores.
