Since a couple of years now we use a GPS when travelling. Our current GPS is a Garmin Map 276C. For us the perfect device; it has logical controls; very clear display and most important, it can stand a good deal. Everywhere in world we can find our way with it, whether the location is on a map or not. Navagating by GPS we often make use of waypoints (GPS coordinates).
When making preparations for a journey we gather a lot of these waypoint through websites of other travellers or we track them through Google Earth. Once on the road we of course create many new own waypoints. Coordinates of special locations, practical addresses, interesting places or great spots to stay overnight. Being travellers ourselves we know like no other how waypoints offered by others can serve you. Grateful we will return te favour by making our own waypoints available for everybody who is interested.
Below you can download them. The waypoints are available in:
