    I have a book that shows French Aires, it gives a GPS of each site, does any one know if its possible to put that info into a Tomtom navigation system. :Eeek: Many thanks

    One way of putting GPS co-ordinates into TomTom is to convert them using POI Convertor Firt though you would have to put them into a CSV format possibly using Excel. From there it is easy to make them into an OV2 TomTom format using the POIconvertor.
    It might sound more complicated than it actually & is easy enough to do, you would also have to have the GPS co-ords as decimal degrees not degrees-minutes-seconds (I did have an Excel spreadsheet I wrote to do the conversion somewhere :RollEyes:)

    Easier way is to use one of the sites that has loads of POI's for you to download such asPOIedit
