In two weeks we head off with caravan to highlands of Scotland from Huddersfield, obviously fill up before setoff but bit woryd about availability of fillup points allong the way. I have looked on internet and have downloaded a points of interest (lpg stations) on to TomTom but on trying it I would say its not very accurate or isn't up to date.phone signal is a bit hit and miss so a phone app ( i have windows phone) might help but won't be 100% relable but might be a backup. Any body any suggestions? My vehicle isn't economic so haveing lpg is important, have 200 miles ish range on tank solo but unsure on towing mpg. Its our first trip in this vehicle up there and advice appreciated.thanks

The answer to all of your questions should be in my signature!

There's POI's you can download, and there's a windows mobile app too.

if your going up the m6 there is a fair few services on the way, Carlisle north being the last one and usually the cheapest without going off route. Its widely available at a reasonable price around Glasgow but once you head further north you can still find it, but it will usually be slightly more expensive. Richards site is your best bet really as the other satnav files available (free and the now defunct one from go-autogas) are out of date by quite a few years. Autogas do one as well but its unlikely to be particularly helpful and that one has its fair share of errors.

Also if you find any errors with Richard's one you can correct them which helps everyone!

The Autogas one only shows filling stations not the Flogas, Calor depots and the like. As said, it's also not very up to date either.

Seems fine here - Check your pm if your still having trouble with getting the file off the site.

Are you using Internet Explorer? It works fine in Chrome, never looked at the site before in IE, there's all sorts of formatting that doesn't work :(

Works OK with Firefox too and I've just tried IE and even that works. In IE, if I click the Download satnav files rather than clicking the Tomtom or Garmin links underneath, I get a 404 error which I don't in Firefox.

Not sure if its just me missing something but I can't see any link to download the bmp file anymore. I'm sure it used to be there though?

I'll add that to my list of things to do!
