    I am having trouble locating Garmin POI i.e GPX, CSV files for France / European Aires / Campsites.

    They seem to be TOM TOM version or ASC(whatever that is?) or the POI are listed individually. I be all day tried to download those !?

    Would some kind soul email me at mzerogsm@googlemail.com a ready made file to upload to my Garmin Nuvi 265W or direct me to a site which is simply to use :cry:

    Hi Dave

    download a POI converter then you can convert any POI format to another

    I use GPS Babel .. but there are others and some do it on-line with no download needed..

    Go to the Bord Atlas website.
    They have a superb download that covers (mainly) Germany. France, Italy, Spain and other European countries.

    The website is in German but Google Translator will translate it. You'll need Garmin Communicator add-on for hands free installation or you can install it manually.

    There are also many other satnavs catered for.

    sorry about that can't do the short version

    On our links page - http://www.doyourdream.co.uk/resources-downloads/useful-links/ - we have a list of around 5 pages on other sites that contain all the GPS points we use.

    If they aren't in your format then convert with http://rjdavies.users.btopenworld.com/html/poiconverter.html which I use and does the job well.

    I do have a brilliant autoroute 2010 file with everything in and its great - but reluctant to post as I can't support it and can't convert it to other formats :(

    Maybe I will..... Hmmm....

    Try these

    http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html it will convert from lat/long, as in All The Aires Book ,and decimal to go into your garmin.

    http://www.gps-data-team.com/ contains lots of files specific to countries and Garmin
    Select the country and then accomodation to get to the Aires POI.

    I use Google Earth as well to view the location of sites. These are .KML files.

    John, g0fgg, Garmin Nuvi 5000.
