Get a card 1GB is loads of space and cheap too

You should have to then download from Archies site the OV2 file for Tom Tom and find a suitable little BMP like

Camping_Shops.jpg

or

Camping_Cheques_Sites.jpg

http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j115/Mad...eques_Sites.jpg

and as long as the two files have the same name before the full stop they will work together to give you the overlay

IF you want to use either of these click the link then when you get the image right click and Save as

Hi Carol,

There isn't any reason why you should buy another card. In contrast, it will not work at all.

What you must do, is copy the .ov2 file and the already existing .bmp file (from the downloaded file(s) from my site) in the countrymap on your storagecard of the TT-one you have .

Just connect your TT-one with the pc and you can use Windows-explorer to do so (copy -> paste).

If you have problems with it, just contact me by clicking the e-mail image on my site!

Good luck!

Kind regards,

Archie

Just planning our next trip to Newlands Charmouth in Dorset

The Camping Cheques POI puts it at N 50.73905 W 2.66926

Which is the wrong side of Bridport and miles away from Charmouth

The Campsites own map puts it near to N 50.73890 W 2.88940

Will confirm this in a weeks time - when we've been

On my TomTom it shows Newlands to the North East of Bridport and the co-ords were downloads from Archies site

Hi Gray,

Maybe you need to buy a new navigationsystem or learn how to use it.

The position of these campingsite, as Parafke said before, is exactly correct and it is simular with the position in my poi's, I just checked it again!

All your remarks on the positions till now doesn't make any sence, I really don't understand what's the meaning of all your messages about this.

Nevertheless I wish you a nice holiday and a lot of pleasure using our data!

Kind regards,

Achie

Let me elucidate

I do know how to use TomTom Nav 6 which is why I brought this to your notice

I downloaded the POI OV2 file from the site (Yours)

I loaded it in the Pocket PC file where it should go (the European map file)

the position of Newlands holiday site was placed on the map to the North East of BRIDPORT

Then I cross checked as it's postal address is CHARMOUTH

the position was incorrect as the POI showed it from the download I got

I merely added to this thread to inform you of this and to let you know I am going and will post a GPS of the campsite gate when I get there

this is the map I found the postion on

post-242-1191052708_thumb.jpg

they describe the campsite as being 50 yards from the A35 turning which is why I said I will confirm the position when I visit

Strange !!

My TomTom (v7) shows the camping exactly where it should be.

Gray,

The only advice I can give is : download the OV2 file again (and try again)

Hi Gray,

Checked again our position for Newlands Holiday Park, this time with Google Earth, and again I have to say there is nothing wrong with our gps coordinates.

I hope you will find your way to this campsite!

Kind regards

Hi Monty,

I am afraid I have to disappoint you.

There are a few systems (and unfortunately for you Becker is one of them) which has decided to keep their devices closed for external data as poi's. The most important reason is, what I think, a commercial one.

Sorry for this,

Archie

PS

However, if anyone has succeeded to install my poi's on a Becker anyway, please let me know how, so I can help others with your info!!

Hi Archie

Thankyou for your reply. I was hopeing that I would be able to add your POI'S, since you can now get speed camera alerts added which you could not before.

I feel sad that Becker Sat Nav's are not able to get down loads as they are good sat nav's, but let down by this.

Many Thanks

Monty

:no::no::no::no::no::no::no::no::no:

Unfortunately I have made in my update of yesterday a terrible mistake in the file of CampingCheque campings. Longitude and latitude were changed, so all the CC-campsites were placed in Africa and the Indian Ocean.

In the meantime this error has been removed and you can download the right positions again.

All the other files were correct.

I apoligize for this terrible error!

POI?s for about 16000 European campsites

Hello,

The first update in 2008 (vs. 1.0801) of Archiescampings is online.

Besides a few adjustments to the other three poi-files, this time as promised we have worked hard to improve the euro11000-file.

In the meantime more as 1000 campsites of the 11000 have been checked and if necessary adjusted. More info you will find in a little word-file which is added to the download.

Please use the new address: www.archiescampings.eu

You guys must LOVE numbers I'd get boggled by the number of co-ords you are checking

But I'm glad you are doing it

BTw I hav efinally worked out how to get the POI files I use for Tom Tom to view in my Autoroute by saving hte file as a CSV file then importing it I can use it in the 2003 version

      Four more for use please, Sonja. Just back from the excellent Plough Lane. Were there 5 years ago when we intended to visit Bath, never made it on that occasion but did this time!   Think that brings our running total to 29 nights! Cheers Keith
