Re: Online/sat-nav map of car parks

If you let me know the model of your Garmin i’ll look up the procedure. I don’t think the postcode info is included in any of the files, so that must be a quirk of your sat nav.

Online/sat-nav map of car parks

I've created a Google map from the coordinates of all the BAA car parks (rivers and pools only, the information for canal parking is vague in the BAA booklet). I've also generated some files that can be loaded into various sat navs or smart phone apps and other software.

The map is here:
http://drive.google.com/open?id=12bBIyluXSpaTtQ6As0nWh6g7JtMYndah&u...

If you click the above link while you are signed into your Google account the map will be copied to your Google ‘My Maps' (https://www.google.com/maps/d/), under ‘NOT OWNED’. It should thereafter be visible in your Google Maps mobile app under menu>Your places>MAPS.

The files are here:
http://www.dropbox.com/sh/modklivkxf7jog4/AAAlmiXCV7dVtMJXdg6sRYJfa...

The .KMZ file is for Google Earth. The .KML file will load into iGO sat nav software. The .OV2 file is for Tomtom sat navs and the Copilot mobile app. The .CSV file should load into Garmin/Mio/Navman/Navigon sat navs. The .RUPI file is for the Sygic mobile app. The .GPX file can be loaded into various mobile apps and desktop programs, and is readily convertable into other formats.

Instructions for how to add them to your sat nav can be found with a web search for something like "import POI [sat nav brand/model]". If you need any help then reply below or send me a message. If anybody needs a different format then let me know and i'll create the file and add it to the shared directory so it's available to everybody.

Here are links to instructions for map installation:
