Okay, there appears to be an expression of interest in these maps.

People at the moment that are requesting a copy is as follows:-


just_bj
paffoh
charlie
hoadie
apo's
Here is how it works, we'll wait and develop a list of names. I guess, when this list reaches 10 or so, we'll start sending out the disks. When a individual on the list receives the disks, they make a copy and PM the next person on the list that has not received their copy. So on and so forth.

So, who else wants in?

Carlo if you have the LPI topocat cover in pdf don't forget to include it as it saves heaps of time looking for the right map in N.S,W.:) enjoy guys these maps are brilliant :lildevil: for anyone else who goes offroad in N.S.W. or VIC these maps are a must. all it will cost you is $130 for Oziexplorer program. it'a 1 time payment and always upgradable for free.

Well here is an example of the topo maps dvd that will shortly be release.

OK, the ball is rolling.

So what happens now?

When you get the DVD in the mail, take a look at the next person on the list.
Send them a PM requesting their delivery address.
Post back here when you have made contact and when you have received their details (this helps everyone know that things are happening).
Make a copy of the DVD for yourself.
Send the DVD onto the next person that you received their details from.

What if you don't hear back within a few days?

I guess this is going to depend on what you consider a reasonable amount of time.
I would say 3-4 days. If you don't hear anything, contact the next person on the list.
Post back here that you have not heard from the original person so that I can update the status and that everyone knows what is going on.

Great idea!

This is what we did on GPS Australia, but we had over 50 people on the list. Thought about doing it here, but with so few, did not seem worth it. But hey, at least everyone will now get the info faster.

Well done guys :)

I'd love to get a set of these maps however can't find out what type of GPS will run the maps.
Can anyone enlighten me please? (I want to get a 'one piece' system for a reasonable price. (Would like to stay under $300 if possible.)

16th October 2009, 09:15 AM
The maps are calibrated for OZI Explorer. though this is made up of the map file and then a calibration file for oziexplorer. could be recalibrated for any mapping program if you have time. any pc running OZI explorer or a windows mobile pda will work. though the maps have to be converted for the pda. tools from www.oziexplorer.com (http://www.oziexplorer.com).

There are some navigation computers that run oziexplorer can't remember which one(s) now.

what is it you want to achieve?

Cheers, Joffa.

Hey all,

I know I'm about 12 months later than most, but any chance of being in on the circulation of the NSW/ Vic topo maps. I have the trial version of Oziexplorer, but haven't got any maps to play around with it. I was at the Caravan and Camping show today, and almost upgraded to the full version of Ozi, but decided I needed more research first.

Regards,

Joel

From what I DO understand, all I need is a laptop, a USB GPS navigator, Oziexplorer and this DVD and I'll have access to quality detailed maps including 4WD tracks for all of Victoria and NSW. Is that right?

Anyway - if someone could please put me on the list I'd be grateful.

BTW - can you get car chargers for laptops ?? Is that a dumb question?

Yes you can, but a more universal option is to get an inverter. That way you have a 240V socket and a USB socket in your car that runs off the ciggie lighter. It means you don't have to buy a car charger for your mobile, MP3 player etc: just plug in the usual charger to the socket and off ya go.

It will work with most 240 v appliances, but some need a genuine sinewave inverter.

I got mine free when I bought a projecta advanced glass matting deep cycle jumpstart kit from Repco.

The nice thing is that I can charge the jumpstart kit off the ciggie lighter while I drive, and have my fridge plugged in to either it or the battery. Its a very cheap way to set up a dual battery system.

Also, inverters can be bought from Jaycar.

here's the jumpstarter:
http://www.projecta.com.au/catalogue/cid/26/asset_id/60/

sadly repco no longer stock them, and appear to have lead acid battery types instead of the advanced glass matting projecta one.

when I got mine from repco it came with one of these free!

there's a new heavy duty version too:

Projecta also do laptop chargers...

Hello All,

I've just joined the Forum and would love to get hold of some 25k/50k/100k SE QLD and NE NSW maps for OziExplorer. I've got 250K but would love to get some finer detail in my home area around Brisbane.

I've just installed a Chinavasion Street King X1 7" All-in-One GPS/DVD/Radio/CD/younameit player model no.CVGX-C51 into my MY-03 Forester.

The installation instructions were fantastic - thanks to Rob;

an alternative site for sanity check:

Wiring is dead easy - buy an ISO-Subaru adaptor harness from ebay or Auto stores:

There is only 1 wire on the unit that needs to be dealt with; Labelled "Handbrake" it needs to be grounded to enable the screen when in Video mode. Its upto you how much effort you want to expend on connecting this up.

For the GPS antenna, I drilled a hole upwards into the map case from between the vents to pass the SMA connector of the GPS antenna cable down through. Excess cable is coiled up in the map case and the GPS antenna sits on the dash under the dash mat - plenty of signal there. The TV antenna and Ipod cable were pushed through a slot leading to the glove compartment - no holes drilled there.

For those doing it the hard way the Foz Wiring loom information is at:

or for more detail:

note the http://ae64.com/ website has lots of Subaru radio information.

I have successfully installed OziExplorerCE onto the unit and it works beautifully in moving map mode. I have captured some google maps for use with OziCE. This is great for city and "known" country, but hopeless for "out there". I have 250K maps but they lack detail when planning a serious outing.

I hope this information is of use to some of you, I look forward to hooking up with folks as we trudge the road of happy destiny.

Cheers to all
