How do I get driving directions to the nearest petrol station?
Enter your location on the Locator page, then click the "Directions" tab. Enter your Start (A) and End (B) points. Then click the "Get Directions" button. Follow the highlighted route and the turn-by-turn directions listed on the left side of the map.
How do I get detailed station information?
Click on station pushpins along your route to open a window with the station's name, address and phone number. Click the "Service Station Details" link for a page listing that specifies service station's features, services, hours of operation and a map with available satellite view.
Why can't I see any stations?
Your station search results automatically point you to the centre of your search area. If there are no visible stations on the map, zoom out to expand the viewing area.
Can I search for petrol stations by their services and offerings?
Yes! Simply select the features in the "Filter" area. The map will automatically update to show stations fitting your criteria. Any stations outside your criteria will be denoted with grey pushpins. NOTE: Selected filters remain active as you search, so remember to uncheck them for new searches.
Once I get directions, how can I get a closer look at where I need to turn?
Click on any step in the driving directions column to display a magnified map view of that specific point in the route.
Can I choose routes other than the one provided?
You can alter your route at any time by clicking and dragging the green pushpins to different Departure (A) and Destination (B) points. The step-by-step directions will update accordingly.
How do I zoom in or out on the map?

How do I get real-time weather and traffic conditions?
On the upper left of the map, click the weather icon to show temperature and conditions within the map area, and the traffic icon to display traffic conditions depicted by green, yellow and red roadways.
"POI" stands for "Point of Interest" or "Place of Interest". It is a location on a map. Specifically, it is a named geographical coordinate that is an intersection between a latitude and longitude measure. POIs are used on GPS-enabled devices to create a relevant destination point on a map for an end-user.
What is GPS?
GPS is an acronym for "Global Positioning System". It is the underlying technology utilising orbital satellites that allows a GPS-enabled receiving device to determine location, speed and direction.
What are coordinates? What is latitude and longitude?
Coordinates refer to a specific point on the earth – made up of an intersection between a latitude number and longitude number (typically measured in degrees but can also be represented numerically). Latitude provides the location of a place on earth north or south of the equator and runs "horizontally" on the globe. Longitude provides the location of a place on earth east or west of a north-south line called the Prime Meridian. Combining latitude and longitude allows us to pinpoint a specific location on the earth.
Don't GPS devices already come with POI data loaded on the unit?
Yes, this is true. However, most estimates and feedback from users state that up to 50% of the POI information is incorrect and out-of-date. This has resulted in a lot of frustration for users who expect to find something in a certain location – only to arrive and find that it doesn't exist. Having the ability to download Esso service station locations is purely a benefit that we wish to provide to our customers for added convenience.
