    Continental Guide Books!

    Off for the first time in a few weeks. I now have my ACSI card and book, Camperstop Europe and the accompanying GPS POI's all nicely loaded. Seems plenty, but now I notice that Camperstop Europe does not include all the Aires in France which I know as I've downloaded a nice android tab free app called 'Campingcar Info's' that has Aires a plenty that are not in Camperstop...Should I now get or do I need 'All the Aires in France' from Vicarious Books?

    ...to get or not to get, that is the question? :Blush:

    Hi David,
    All the aires in france, is in english but it only covers about Quote 2700 aires but as any collection it won't or any other book have them all.
    I have edition 1 then it only had 1600 but with that and my camperstop book and it's download of poi's I have always coped .
    I also use motorhomingfrance.co.uk as they have a reasonable database which I print off for the areas that I intend to go.
    Another good source of info is www.bdauncey.eclipse.co.uk , he has visited a lot and has put on his site recommendations and map refs.
    Hope this helps. Have a good trip which ever part you go to ( I'm envious ).
    I can't wait until sept as we then are off to brittany for 2 weeks.
    Terry:sin:

    We have old copies of 'Camperstop Europe' and the French 'Aires de Service' books, both 2007 editions, but nowadays, we rely almost exclusively on CC Infos. As well as the download version which opens in a web browser, get the free POI files from the website and load them in your SatNav.
    For Germany, I would also recommend the Reisemobil Bordatlas (in German but easy to understand). http://www.reisemobil-international.de/stellplaetze/bordatlas/
    This is in two volumes, one for Germany and one for the rest of Europe; available from UK sellers.

    Thanks Terry and Phillip for your advice and suggestions, the Brian Dauncey link is excellent; my goodness has he been about!
    Your suggestions got me looking about and I found this site http://www.i-campingcar.fr/accueilcartes.htm and if you click on the GPS tab, select your device (mines a Garmin), fill in the name and email box and you will be sent the files almost at once. I've uploaded and checked a good few out and it appears I now have a good few Aires in France.

    Thanks again, Dave
