Downloading TomTom POI files for Germany/Austria/Switzerland and for Italian LPG & CNG filling stations

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/10/22

LPG is Liquefied Petroleum Gas. CNG is Compressed Natural Gas. Both are good fuels for cars. I favour LPG, for two reasons. First, it often can be obtained as a rest-product of cracking crude oil, second it has a much higher energy density than CNG.

For each country, you should

  1. download the POI files (preferably in the OV2 format)
  2. download the icon bitmap file
  3. make sure the name portion of the files are the same
  4. copy those files to your device using the something like the MyPOI manager or the instructions at TomTom POI updates in TomTom forum – GPS POI.

Germany, Austria & Switzerland

Note: In Switzerland, there are relatively few LPG stations, but many CNG stations.

Download section for getting LPG and CNG stations in Germany, Switzerland and Austria: LPG & CNG Tankstellen (download).

For TomTom devices, just download the LPG or CNG files for POI and Icon:

Italy and other countries

Start your downloads at LPG Autogas in Italy – Petrol GPS POI data directory for TomTom, Garmin, Navman, SmartPhones and other GPS devices. – GPS POI Data.

Then press the Download POI File button to download the OV2 and BMP file.
