    Hi,

    The POI's for the 1891 campsites in the ACSI Camping-card scheme are available in a CSV format on the ACSI web site, I believe you will need to join (free) to access the download,

    I have downloaded and converted it to an Autoroute axe file and it works fine the pushpins show the Lat and Long plus the site name and the page number.

    Hope that helps

    Hi Braunston

    Can you post a link to the acsi site, I have been to vicarious books and camping card acsi but cannot find a download. I have ordered the book and the dvd, but would still like the download for autoroute. Also I do not know how to convert files. Your help would be appreciated. Maybe you could upload to the FUN site.

    Thanks

    Lesley

    Hi Lesley its in .csv format according to braunston, so you need to convert to .axe after you download it. At work at the mo so can't do it for you.

    Hi,

    Have you downloaded the the csv file, from Olleys link, if you have, open Autoroute and click on Data, then Import Data Wizard, then select the file you have just downloaded, then click on open and you should be asked to chose the separator character which is Comma, then click on next, then alongside of the section Data Type, change the <Other Data> sections to Latitude - Longitude - Name click on finish and that's it and before closing Autoroute you need to name the file.

    Hope that helps

    Lesley you have a PM

    Hi

    go to the ACSI preferences and select Garmin ; TT ; or unknown, which is the .csv file

    I've uploaded TT and the.csv files.

    No need to register, downloaded super fast, followed perfect instructions from Braunston, and there we have it, little pushpins all over Europe on Autoroute.

    I think I will be buying a GPS receiver for my netbook - make that the SatNav of choice.

    Edit correction - you do need to register and log in - I didn't realise I was already logged in.
