Eon4wd Maps are maps of Australia to suit OziExplorer software. EonMaps use data from Open Street Map, OSM.
To use the EonMaps you will need an installed copy of the OziExplorer software.
Eon Maps has evolved out of a personal project that other users of OziExplorer may find useful.
The December 2017 edition of EonMaps is the 4th generation and includes hillshading and contours on the higher resolutions.

These are free maps for OziExplorer.
Both files are required and need to be placed into your OziExplorer map folder to be usable.

Email me for a USB stick of the complete set of maps.
If you have any feedback about how you have used these maps or how they could be more useful, please drop me a line.
They are also available for download from 'Onedrive'
EonMaps have been developed for easy viewing of relevant features whilst being used in a 4wd on a windows style laptop or Android pad. The roads have good contrast so that they are easily visible. The maps don't have all the 'points of interest' so they remain uncluttered.
Zoom 13 and above, have all the roads and tracks as marked on OSM.
If tracks or roads are missing it is because OSM does not have the information. Why not become a registered user?
If something is not right I would like to hear about it.
OSM is updated in real time.
EonMaps are not in real time. Current Edition December 2017

OziExplorer is GPS Mapping software for the real time tracking of GPS position. I have used OziExplorer over many years for planning my 4wd trips and highly recommend it. If you are not familiar with the OziExplorer mapping software then you should visit their web site for more information. There is also a trial version available for download.
EonMaps have not replaced my other maps such as Hema and the Roof Top Series, but they are the maps that are on the screen for most of the time whilst travelling.
Zoom 11 is great for travelling between towns and across the state.
Zoom 13 brings in all the minor roads and tracks and is good to use around a town or general area.
Zoom 15 is great for pinpointing where tracks and roads start and stop.
I use a 10" Windows 10 pad from 'Aldi' with an external USB GPS as well as a 7" Nexus Android pad with built in GPS. The Nexus is easier to view and use than the 10" Windows pad, but the Windows machine is more useful for when I want to record and transfer logs and waypoints.

Note that some of these single maps cover a large area. Thus some are just a subset of the larger.
Would you like a map of just a particular area?
