Fresh Podcasts, App Updates, and Community!


17 November, 2023

Hi ExplorOz Reader

We're thrilled to announce a new update for the Traveller app web version! This update, exclusive to our valued Members, enhances your browsing experience with the Traveller app.


  • Improved compatibility with the latest web browsers, including Chrome, Edge, Opera, Firefox, and Safari.
  • Expanded browser support for a seamless experience.
  • Technical details available in Thread 146484,on the ExplorOz Forum.


Simply open your browser and access the Traveller Web-App as usual. Upon launching the new version, you'll be guided through the "Getting Started Guide," including user login and content download.


  • The Web-App is designed for computers, not mobile devices.
  • Access online map sources with GPS functionality disabled, focusing on planning rather than active travel.
  • The auto-sync feature ensures seamless data transfer between your mobile device and the ExplorOz server.
  • Please avoid simultaneous changes on both your mobile device and the web-app to prevent data conflicts.

We're committed to providing you with the best tools for your exploration journey. Thank you for your patience during this update.


In this week's episode, we take a nostalgic journey through the years of vehicle changes and modifications for touring, field research, and exploration. Join us as we share personal and work experiences that have shaped our evolving requirements. Listen to the podcast on Spotify or any other podcast platform in audio-only format. For a visual experience, catch the live recording onYouTube.


  • Informative discussions on ExplorOz features and Traveller app tips.
  • Engaging interviews with fascinating individuals.
  • Practical topics like Planning a Big Lap, Cooking & Packing, and addressing the Rubbish issue.
  • Insights into managing a plant-based diet while traveling.
  • Updates on our upcoming adventure beginning in December.


Embarking on a journey from Perth to Tasmania, we'll traverse SA/NSW/VIC before returning to the mainland in March. Our route unfolds from south to north, covering QLD, the Top End of NT, Kimberley, Central Australia, Flinders Ranges, and southern WA. While we have a loose plan, flexibility is key, embracing the unknowns of travel. With a fully off-grid, off-road setup and extensive knowledge, 2024 promises to be a year of unforgettable adventures.


We value your thoughts on this new venture. With topics ranging from ExplorOz insights and Traveller app tips to chats about vehicles, camping, places, and interviews with fellow travellers, there's a lot to cover. Share your feedback with us, helping us tailor content to your interests. We're committed to improving each week as we dive into this new medium, but your encouragement through ratings and comments fuels our journey. Join us as we strive to make each episode better than the last!


We were thrilled with the positive response to our last newsletter's call to action, urging you to review your Personal Places. If you haven't had the chance to do so yet, consider this a friendly reminder.


  • Open the Traveller app.
  • Tap the Search icon.
  • Select "Places."
  • Choose "Personal" and browse through your list.

Take a moment to identify entries that could be either deleted or switched to ExplorOz. Don't stress about perfect descriptions or contacts; we'll handle validation and edits as needed. The goal is to share those hidden gems with the community rather than keeping them locked away.


Focus on the sites where you've snapped photos, places that hold memories. These are gems waiting to be switched to ExplorOz. If you're unsure about the process, refer to our previous newsletter for step-by-step instructions.

Your contributions make ExplorOz richer, and sharing your favorite spots can inspire others. Let's build a vibrant community map together!



As a small business, our presence isn't splashed across 4WD and Camping/Caravan Shows or prominent in magazines and digital ads. Instead, it's the warmth of word-of-mouth referrals, shared around campfires by happy app users like you, that truly defines how the Traveller app reaches new adventurers. To everyone who has been championing us on their journeys, your support means the world and makes a real impact!

Yet, we understand the importance of visibility in the digital age. For potential users exploring the app store, recent reviews from our incredible community can make all the difference.


Take a moment to reflect on your experience with the Traveller app, and consider leaving a short review. Your genuine feedback not only helps fellow explorers make informed decisions but also ensures that our small business can continue growing and providing valuable tools for your adventures.

Your words carry weight, and we appreciate every review, big or small. Let's keep the community spirit alive and share the love for the Traveller app!
