Re: Archie's Camping??

I understand how to find lodging and camping on Cycle Travel. Maybe I was expecting more information when I searched for camping.

Archie's Camping??

Trying to understand how to use it. It is used in Cycle Travel but how does it work? Does it just show you the location or is there more information available such as contact info? I can't seem to figure it.

Re: Sources of openstreetmap for garmin
