    Thuraya Sat phone quick test

    Good review. I've had one for over 5 years now and its been excellent. Just go to the menu and let the phone find its GPS position so that it knows where it is in relation to the satellite. It does pick up a lot of noise if its windy making it difficult for the person on the other side to...

    Campervan with family of 4 may be stranded for 2 weeks after getting bogged.

    I was up that way and camped on a private property during that weather. Apart from the weather reports via BOM etc it was blatantly obvious that there was severe weather on the way. The forecast I was given said 20 to 60mm of rain, thunderstorms with hail and winds upt to 90 km/hr. In my...

    Have you been vaccinated yet?

    Just a bit of a follow up. Had a bit of a yak with the Doc while I was waiting for the nurse to give me the 15 minute ok to go home. Apparently if there are going to be temporary side effects they may start to show in 12 to 15 hours after the jab (I am coming up to 11 hours and just starting to...

    Carplay Head unit

    I fitted a Kenwood DDX9019DABS to mine instead of paying for out of date map updates that were hopeless on the original unit. Best mod I have done, maps, messages and spotify etc. Just waiting for Memory Maps to go CarPlay now ;)

    New Hema 4x4 Explorer App

    Another factor that probably needs to be considered nowadays and doesn't seem to be getting mentioned is whether the mapping software is CarPlay compatible. I run a Kenwood DDX9019DABS unit and can run GAIA, Waze and Magic Earth on there from my phone. The GAIA has the ability to overlay state...
