We have just bought a new Garmin Satnav:

http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/phones-broadband-and-sat-nav/sat-nav/sat-nav/garmin-drivesmart-51lmt-d-eu-5-sat-nav-full-europe-maps-case-10163015-pdt.html?istCompanyId=bec25c7e-cbcd-460d-81d5-a25372d2e3d7&istItemId=xlpailiiiw&istBid=tztx&srcid=198&cmpid=ppc~gg~1008+%28PLA%29+GPS+NAVIGATION~All+Products~Exact&mctag=gg_goog_7904&kwid=GOOGLE&device=c&ds_kids=92700024720433237&PLA=1&tgtid=1008+%28PLA%29+GPS+NAVIGATION&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIm6q2uODZ1gIVxrftCh0TYAFiEAQYAiABEgJTqfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CPjUxrvg2dYCFc8i0wodweMMxA

and have updated full European maps onto a 32GB micro SD card which slots into the satnav.
Of the choices that Archie offers, I think I should download full European sites and sites near motorways.
Opinions please.
Apologies for the lengthy link.


Don't forget to leave a review of the French and other European campsites you have visited!

Are you going to go all over Europe?

I have Garmin and using the POI loader program it is very easy.

Download the areas you are likely to be visiting, the loader will automatically put it onto SD card.

You retrieve the data from "Custom Categories" in the category section.

The sites near motorways is in the form of an .xl file which you then print off.

Here is the link just a tad smaller.

Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.

Many thanks Blueexpo97.

Interestingly, when I quoted your reply, it reverted back to the full length version.

Is there a simple way of shortening links, and putting "here", or other words, please?
