    Could someone please give me the co-ordinates for this Aire at St Malo which if I remember correctly has a free bus into the city from the gate. I always mess up trying to find co-ordinates so a general guide to getting there would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks,
    Norman.

    not to be contentious and a serious question, why would people use coordinates rather than address

    I guess it will be that it can pin point the location, but most roads aren't that long from my experience :)

    David, just looking into this now, perhaps a little late as we are setting off tomorrow ! Having never ever downloaded any app thingys which is the better to download from, the App Store or Google play.
    I use a Sony mobile which is android I believe, may as well be hemaroid to me :D
    Much prefer an address to be honest, at least until I get to grips with co-ordinates.

    Have fun, stick with addresses, at least you will get within a few yards, get coordinates transposed you could end up in the wrong country (y):LOL:

    edit - and take all the aires book forget the app :)

    With camper contact there is no need for either, just select get directions (y)(y)

    We found the Camper Contact app pretty useful when we took the van to France for the first time last year. Worth getting as a reference.
