App subscription & prospector subscriptions

All users of Australian Geology Travel Maps must have the App subscription.  This provides all the functionalities of the app, plus geology maps, aero-magnetic imagery and resource maps for all of Australia.  All other subscriptions are additional to the App subscription.  The App subscription has a 1-week trial period.

The WA prospector subscription gives access to the WA current tenements, WA gold deposits, WA minexpl holes and WA graticular blocks maps.  The QLD gold, NSW gold and VIC gold subscriptions give access to the gold maps of the same names.  These subscriptions have a 3-day trial period.

List or cancel your subscriptions on a phone or tablet

  • Within Australian Geology Travel Maps ..
    • tap the menu icon (3 horizontal bars)
    • tap ‘My subscriptions
    • note whether each subscription is set to expire or auto-renew a year from purchase
    • change the status of the subscription if required

Android vs Apple subscriptions

Australian Geology Travel Maps is available on two different systems – iTunes  (for iPhones & iPads) and Google Play (for Android phones & tablets) .  Your subscriptions cover all of your Apple devices, or all of your Android devices.  Subscriptions do not span both systems, though.

Subscriptions are not transferable between iTunes and Google Play, so if you are planning on changing your phone/tablet from Android to Apple or vice versa, you need to cancel your current subscriptions.  Change over towards the end of your subscription period to get maximum use from it, because there is no refund for the unused portion.

Install app on your second device

  • Android:  install Australian Geology Travel Maps on your second Android device (phone or tablet).  When you first run the app, it will recognise your purchased subscriptions.
  • Apple:  install Australian Geology Travel Maps on your second Apple device (iPhone or iPad).  Run the app, and tap the menu icon (3 horizontal bars), then tap ‘Restore purchases‘.  The app will now recognise your purchased subscriptions.  If you purchase another subscription on your other device, you might need to run ‘Restore purchases’ again.
  • Maps you have downloaded on your first device will not appear on your second device.  You need to download the required maps to your second device.
  • Trails and locations that you have created on your first device will not appear on the second device.  On your first device, share your trails and locations as CSV and put these into emails.  On your second device, open up the emails, for each email tap on the attached CSV file, tap on the trilobite icon, then the trails/locations will appear on your second device.
