Off-road Tasmania Waypoints

Waypoint Disc

The trip descriptions in the guidebook include many coordinates of strategic locations. These are expressed as Latitude and Longitude. The coordinates have been located in the moving map program OziExplorer and saved as a waypoint file (.wpt). This file can be loaded into navigator GPS units running OziExplorerCE. The waypoints are also available for use in Garmin GPS units (.gpx file).

The coordinates also include positions of caravan parks, camping areas, bush camps and many picnic areas statewide.

Further information about each location is included in the individual waypoint properties.

Over 600 waypoints are included in the files.
