    Hi

    does anyone know where I can download some poi's for a garmin sat nav for LPG?

    I am after Uk and Europe if possible.

    We have just had a refillable bottle installed by autogas 2000 so i'm off to france to try it out!! They have done an excellent job even showing me how to fill the bottle in the Uk, France and Germany! With the lighter bottle I can bring back for VINO!!

    Thanks

    They still list one on some websites in Rugby that closed down 10 years ago, huge variation in cost as well, paid 65p last week but later went past big main road forcourts selling at nearly 75p, its great though I would never want to go back to fetching bottles again

    If you have All The Aires France latest edition there is quite a comprehensive list of GPL stations in the back of the book.

    Just like All The Aires though there are still quite a lot that are not listed. :Laughing:

    Quite a lot of Intermarche supermarkets have GPL as do Auchan. Not found a Leclercs one yet though!

    Calor refused to allow me to refill my Gaslow bottles a couple of years ago (external connection), so would be interested to know if they have had a policy change since then?

    If you go on the Pocket GPS World website they have a lot of POIs for Europe. There is one for LPG in France. Website http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/

    I used this one for France - they do other countries under their 'Petrol' category too.:

    http://poi.gps-data-team.com/france/petrol/

    If you need to convert the file format go to www.poieditor.com

    Also bear in mind that if you're searching for French POI files they call it GPL, and that Autogas is a particular brand so their POI won't cover all filling stations.
