This app is designed to be used on a portable device such as a laptop/notebook with an external GPS connection for active travel navigation. See GPS details below.
For home trip planning, you might prefer to use our web-app instead of purchasing this version of the app (see Membership option below).
An external GPS is required to show your position on the map as you travel when offline.
If you connect a serial or USB connector to add a GPS to your device for use in this app you will also need to install a GPS sensor driver (we recommend GPSComplete). You can download and run this product in evaluation mode. Just follow the program prompts. TIP: Ensure you use your Windows Device Manager first to determine which COM Port your GPS is plugged into. This is required for the setup the GPS Complete program accurately.
Note: If you intend to use multiple GPS programs alongside ExplorOz Traveller (eg. OziExplorer or Memory Map or TrackRanger) then you will need the GPS Complete Bundle. Direct connects the GPS to Windows 10 and Reverse then makes another Serial port from the Direct connection, allowing you to connect back to your existing program.
HOW TO USE EXPLOROZ TRAVELLER ON WINDOWS WITHOUT A GPS
