Australia’s Great Desert Tracks is a must have for anyone planning to travel into Australia’s central desert region. Use of this software with a Magellan GPS will offer any traveller complete peace of mind. Together, this software and a Magellan GPS will enable the user to view the desert tracks as a moving map. Showing not only their present location and their movements in real time, but also their destination.
Australia’s Great Desert Tracks uses the same software technology as MapSend and DiscoverAus, but is a special map product of Australia’s outback. This product has been produced in conjunction with Hema Maps, an Australian mapping company that spent four years gathering the extensive data that has been used to make this useful new product.
Australia’s Great Desert Tracks covers over 100,000 km of desert tracks, and it also includes an Australia wide base map with main roads and highways. Possibly the best feature of Australia’s Great Desert Tracks is that it provides detailed information on some of the country’s most famous adventure tracks including the Canning Stock Route, the Birdsville, Strzelecki and the Oodnadatta. Another remarkable feature of this product is that it is equipped with information on many points of interest. This includes practical places such as fuel stops, and water wells, but also includes sight seeing locations, historical landmarks, mines, caves and graves to enhance the travel experience.
