2011 Aires, Bordatlas, ACSI, Camping Cheque GPS POI Databases (TomTom, Autoroute, Garmin)

(See HERE for our other GPS download index page)

Update with 2011 Data (31 Jan 2011)

*** OBSOLETE – PLEASE SEE LATER 2012 NOTES AND VERSION HERE ***

Autoroute 2010, TomTom & Garmin Download Files

When we go away I always tend to scour the internet for all the GPS points of interest I can for aires and some sites and combine them together in a single Autoroute file in order to help with our route planning.

** I DO NOT PROFESS TO HAVE CREATED ANY OF THIS DATA – MEERLY COMBINED IT **.  I don’t think this is an issue, but if any of the data owners think it is then please let me know immediately and I will remove this file.  All of the data sources are listed on our links page http://www.doyourdream.co.uk/resources-downloads/useful-links/ . 

You will need Autoroute 2010 or a TomTom, or a Garmin satnav in order for these downloads to work, so don’t download the files without it as you won’t get the POI groupings etc. If you don’t have it you can get it from Amazon as well as other places 

Free Download

For simplicity, all downloads been moved to a single page.  Click HERE to get the free downloads

The download file contains the GPS POI for the following:-

  • Bordatlas (including page numbers to allow book reference)
  • Aires de Service (verified & non verified)
  • Motorhome Parking (verified & non verified)
  • Motorway Aires with Services
  • ACSI 2011 sites (including page numbers to allow book reference)
  • Camping Cheque 2011 sites (including page numbers to allow book reference)

We use the file in conjunction with books, for instance the file will tell you the page to look at in Bordatlas for the aire you are looking at. And the Aires books give you more details than the download.  So for a more informative life, fine the aire in the overall database then refer to books for details.  (books NOT necessary, just useful!)

USING THE DATA

We use and recommned Autoroute 2010 (the cheaper version) for your laptop  If you want to have GPS tracking and navigation on your laptop, the Autoroute 2010 GPS comes with a GPS receiver.  (Or buy the cheaper one and a serparate USB/Bluetooth GPS receiver from eBay).  We also use an excellent TomTom XL with IQ routes and full maps for Europe and beyond.  We could not survive without Tommy!

 
 

Support

Download is provided as-is along as my bandwidth allows!  No support is given. You will need to “unzip” any download to get the data, and then use whatever method your manual says to get the POIs into your satnav

Data Sources

The sources for this data is on my links page, but includes the following.  Suggest you look at these sites directly to get the data in other formats.

  1. Hi
    I would like to use your download on an iPad but the downloads don’t work

    I am not too hot with computer downloads can you tell me is there a way to do this on an iPad

    Thanks

  2. Hi. CSV Format fixed – my error sorry.
    As for iPad – you will need to get an app that can see these file types. No idea what though. Sorry.

  3. Hi Ryan & Mel, I think that Norrie could use Apple’s app ‘Numbers’ that can be downloaded through the iTunes store for 5.99GBP

  4. Not able to get to web page with ACSI site database for Autoroute 2010.
    Have you moved it to a new location?
    Would very much like to have a download for forthcoming trip to France
