SatNav Points-of-Interest collector (v2.93)

If you find this page useful, or you consider it to be a worthwhile cause, you may consider making a small donation towards the upkeep and running of the site. Thank you.

This page was created to enable people to collaborate in the creation of satellite Navigation Points-of-Interest files for the likes of TomTom Satellite Navigation systems and similar. At the present time, the database contains the locations of Disabled (Blue Badge) parking bays and Radar Key toilets, Shopmobility Centres and Pubs and Bars.
The facility is provided for free and the files created are also provided for free. (The database and its contents remain ©GonMad, No Original Thought and Dan Gibson)
In order to add a location to the database, you must supply two pieces of information. These are the location/position in Lat/Long format (to get the position, you simply place the marker on the GoogleMap below right!) and a description of the point. The requirements for the description are different depending on what type of POI you are adding, and info will be displayed when you select the type in the drop-down list.
The GoogleMap on the right of this page is provided to enable you to retrieve the Lat/Long data for the location you are adding.
All we ask is that you enter only valid information.
Thank you.

Unfortunately map browsing and editing of Blue Badge spaces and other PoIs is not currently possible.

Google recently changed the way their mapping system works and in the process broke BlueBadgeParking.com and GonMad PoIs. We are working on a new, improved version of the site and hope to have something working soon.

In the meantime, downloads will still work without problems (see left).
