2012 GPS Database (Aires, Service, ACSI etc) available

After the popularity of my 2009, 2010 and 2011 databases – I have now created a new 2012 version with the latest available data.

As always, I wish to reiterate I did not create any of the raw data.  I have simply obtained the data from multiple sources, maniplated into a standard format, done a bit of Excel fiddling, and got it into formats that I (and I know others) find most useful.

The formats are for MS Auto route 2010 and 2011.  Please download the correct version as MS AR 2011 does NOT upgrade the 2010 data to 2011 correctly.  I have also included TomTom and a RAW format that is .csv files that are all in a format suitable for Garmins (I believe).  Also there is a Google Earth version, both a single database and individual files if you want them.

The databases contain:-

  • ACSI 2012 (including page numbers for books)
  • Camping Cheques 2012 (including page numbers for books)
  • Bordatlas 2012 (including page numbers for books)
  • Motorhome Parking (daytime)
  • Motorhome Parking (night permitted)
  • Motorhome Parking (dedicated places)
  • Campsites allowing MH Service
  • Motorway aires
  • Aires de service stop off only
  • Aire de service service and stay

The later datasets are from “Camping Car Infos” – and if you have a laptop I strongly recommend you downloading or buying their offline database.  You can get these datasets directly of them, but not in a format suitable for simply getting into Garmins or Autoroute (hence my conversion)

Download the files from our single download page HERE




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!

  1. You have so much information that this 69 year old guy gets head aches. Iv’e seen comments about Tommy having such large maps that it won’t even fit on the internal memory of 2Gb with no external slot for add on. Don’t understand if the GPS is plugged into the laptop USB and if so what does it do with the AutoRoute 2011 which we now have on our laptop.
