    We've just come across this site. It looks quite good.

    Has anybody else used it and if so is it as good as it seems?

    I downloaded this paid for app.
    It's says it works offline.
    I'm not happy as the route doesn't work offline, it does give coords that I put in my sat nav though.
    Nearly all the reviews are not in English so the app says not viewable by my phone which is set to English.
    I have emailed them to say I would like them to be shown so that I can translate if need be.
    Haven't replied yet.
    The paid version does give more sites though.

    I have the free POI set on my SatNav. It's useful for Holland and Scandinavian countries but I prefer CC-Infos for general use, particularly France and southern countries.

    I have the paid for app on my iPhone and iPad

    it's supported by the Dutch RV Club (NKV) so most of the reviews will be in Dutch. if you use it online - www.campercontact.com - you can set it to autotranslate the reviews but that doesn't work with the mobile version

    to me, it's easy to use and very comprehensive. I was using it yesterday to research some aires for an upcoming trip to France and there was very little difference in those listed on this site and CC-infos (which is considered the gold standard list) but is much much easier to use. as CC-infos does not have an iOS app (only android) then it's the best choice for us iPhone/iPad users.

    I first came across it last year - the list has grown enormously in the last 12 months.

    I always use this site on my PC when planning a trip. I also have the POI;s on my Tom Tom.

    You are able to download pdfs of either the region you are looking for or the whole country. It has helped us out a lot in the past.

    The Dutch will always find some where to stay. My Moto when we have been looking for somewhere to stay if wed see a Dutch campervan is to follow it. Never been wrong yet. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    But theres always a first time:Wink:
