Hello,

again new places, also for Iceland and many other places.

Thanks to Sue for the Iceland-places.

Download again from above.

Attention: File-size is 1000 KB smaller - Found a big double-file and deleted it.

Regards

So,

die meisten im Netz findbaren Campingplätze wie auch die vorhandenen Updates usw. sind vorhanden.

Jetzt war Zeit und Muse die Daten zu pflegen, sprich doppelte Wegpunkte zu entfernen, falsch liegende Wegpunkte zu korrigieren, bei gleichlautenden Namen eine Nummerierung einzufügen, die nur mit dem "Schnorchel" erreichbaren Campingplätze wieder an Land zu ziehen usw.

Desert-Info.ch - Camping-Welt.zip, Google-Earth-KML + GPX - ZIP, 4953 KB ------------------------>

Trotzdem noch vorhandene Fehler dürft Ihr behalten oder korrigiert an mich zurückschicken.

Gruß

U.E.H.

P.S.: Sorry, was too lazy to translate. Maybe someone would do it for me.

New: National Parks in Afrika!

- 52 countries
- 335 NPs




Many of the travellers visit the NPs in Africa. I have sampled the places and prepared a new file - National Parks.zip. But take care, mostly it's only a waypoint in the middle of the area.

For more information the following links:

Wikipedia Englisch - List of national parks in Africa
Africa Game Reserves
UNESCO - World Heritage Africa

More informations by Google.

The Campgrounds are also reorganised, again corrected and updated!




The files for the NPs and Campgrounds are stored together in Camping-Welt.zip.

Also new is the Garmin-Mapsource format GDB (sorry, not separated in single countries).

Desert-Info.ch - Camping-Welt.zip, Google-Earth-KML + GPX + Garmin Mapsource GDB- ZIP, 6716 KB----->

Unzip all and You will get two directories with the data inside.

Best regards

Ulrich

PS.: Sorry for my rural Frankonian English

Suggestion
As the camping wordwide single file is rather large, I've converted it ready to upload to your gps using POI Loader to be used as a custom POI

tip: each time you upload to a gps enabled custom poi folder
ALL your custom POI files (excel in .csv format WITH matching filename icon in .bmp format) MUST all be in the same folder as it erases any previous one salready loaded.

The benefit of using custom POI's on your gps is that these do not take up 'normal' poi memory space.

i.e if your unit can say have up t0 2000 poi's then you will retain the ability to use all of those for your own poi's and route poi's. AND have your custom poi's available- you can 'goto' them but once loaded into your gps you cannot move or edit them.

POI Loader software is available free of charge from Garmin's website.
I use a 278C and did a 'crash unit' by uploading larger and larger custom POI files- It jammed somewhere around 326 THOUSAND! so keeping max load to 300,000 custom pois' on this particular unit.

Happy trails and thanks to ulrich for providing the original data
