    Benn using the Campercontact app for some some tine. Try also CC Infos, its in French but covers most of Europe and has very good comprehensive POI downloads, accurate and well classified.

    It's OK but has a mixture of sites & Aires and not really very many. Almost unusable offline, and concordants are often a bit out. Lists loads of Aires in the UK that are just carparks that you can't overnight, due to this I tend to be suspicious of the entries.

    Yes it has a mix.. as you would expect..

    not very many .. Do you mean in the UK or generally ?

    why can't you use off line.. have you downloaded the country map(s)

    did you buy the full version ?

    Yes the full version
    Not many overall.
    The downloaded maps are very very slow to load to slow to make it useable.

    Also been using it for a while, find a site and click route and it opens up TomTom and puts the destination in for you so no messing with coordinates.

    You do need TomTom or another guidance package on the same device.

    how can you say 17,500 isn't many ?

    not saying it's complete but that's more than any other app I've tried.. and of course it is not the 'be all and end all of camper apps'.. just another in the tool box.

    maybe it's your device that is short on processing power and or memory ?

    haven't road tested yet but checking places from home it seems to work well..and pretty fast.. and it integrates with the phone sat nav and routes to the location.

    I've checked places where I know there are aires and haven't found it missing any.. seems to be spot on.

    granted, it's early days and I will review after I've used it in anger

    I've been using it for around a year - has found me a few great spots that I would otherwise have missed.
    I try to leave as many reviews as possible. If nothing else, it's a good record of stopovers...

    It's worth adding that the free version only contains a very small number of sites whereas you have to buy the full version to get all the sites
    I think it's a small price to pay for probably the only app you will ever need

    I think I agree as we prefer it to the All the Aires book
