    Reading posts on here about municipal sites in France, is there a book that lists them, either in French or preferably, English?

    Hi Ken
    not to my knowledge, some are listed aires guides and camping books.

    Most are in the alanrogers guide to French campsites, get it from www.alanrogers.com

    However many municipal sites are now sold or being sold and run privately, because that way the town gets a nice income and something less to run!

    Hi Dave
    I also use Pocket GPS world but are you sure you got French sites ?
    Did you remember to 'refresh' the POI list after selecting France ?

    There are no campsite POIs listed in the France list.. :Sad:

    Hi Guys just a quick post before I dash of to work, the POI with 2500 sites is from http://www.myfavouritecampsite.com it wouldn't be fair for me to put it in the download section, if you go on their site and make I believe 3 posts you can download it and others for britain, germany etc.

    Risky Jim, once you start using the dell you will realise what you have been missing, and may not go back to the Mac. >:)

    Well, always one for fairness, I have been using it recently, it was gathering dust in the locker...
    I decided to try it out in ernest and give Vista a go.. I downloaded a few updates, installed AVG , Adaware .. oh the excitement .. the good old days of scanning for viruses and knocking out trojans, I realised what I had been missing.. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Seriously.. its' early days .. but it's not bad, my main reason for buying the Dell was to run Autoroute 2007, previously when I tried it with Vista it wouldn't run properly, now it works a treat, GPS and voice guidance is faultless..

    Now if only Apple had something as good as Autoroute .. :Doh:
