Membership FAQ

We have two types of user access for ExplorOz:
1. a free user account &
2. a Member account.

They type of account you have determines what features and tools you have access to use when using our website and also when using our apps (ExplorOz Traveller, and ExplorOz Tracker).

It's crucial to understand that when buying the Traveller app this does not make you "Member".
Furthermore, when you register your email address to create your ExplorOz account this is not creating a "Member" account.

Member accounts are only available through a separate subscription, giving you access to extra perks and services. This page will explain exactly what those extra are so that you can decide if having a Member account is for you.

Do you need Membership?

Before you purchase a subscription please consider the following points:
  • DON'T buy a Membership Subscription if you're expecting this to provide maps or ongoing map updates in the Traveller app
  • DO buy a Membership Subscription if you want to gain access to exclusive features and tools that enhance your use of our navigation and tracking products.
Even if you don’t use all our Membership features, your subscription is crucial in keeping our small business viable. Maintaining customer loyalty and providing personalized service is essential to us. Your Membership allows us to offer affordable options and remain independent. By paying for annual memberships, you significantly help keep a small Australian business competitive against larger companies, and we greatly appreciate this support.

What are the Member-Only Extras?

ExplorOz Membership allows our users to access to EXTRA features that compliment the standard use of ExplorOz navigation products.


  • Auto Syncing Tracker Services:- Sync and secure your device tracking from either the ExplorOz Traveller or Tracker app as you travel and let the system create a dynamic tracking map of your journey with all the important trip metrics including; time last seen, speed, activity type recognition, battery status, daily distance, overnight locations, and last synced location. Share a status to pin photos to your map. This dynamic map can be shared on your socials or with friends/family. Reset the map for the next journey and save the tracking into your account as a Track Log with more options for analysis and tools to write a trip journal description, add photos, and share your big adventure!
  • Traveller Web-App:- This is an online version of Traveller giving you access to your account data and the latest online version of EOTopo maps to use on desktop PCs/laptops/MacBooks and Mac computers.The ideal 2nd device compliment for using the app on a different platform to help you browse and plan your trip.

The Tracker app also shows tracking from multiple devices, either yours or those of other registered Tracker Members. If non-Members (family/friends) want to follow your trip progress, ask them to download the free app and follow the prompts to share your tracking with them. There is no cost for them to use the "View" features in the Tracker app. BONUS: Tracker works worldwide! See the Tracker webpage for details.
