Cork Coast Marine, Irish & French GPS WayPoints/Tracks database/repository that I've recorded myself or obtained from others. Jul 2010

These files allow you to load waypoints & tracks into your GPS or SatNav.

The Waypoints files can be downloaded from this folder. The file format is GPX so it should work with any GPS receiver, Use the sofware that came with your receiver, e.g. for Garmin it's Mapsource. There's also a free GPS software - EasyGPS that should work with most receivers (I haven't tried it). NB see disclaimer at the end - use these waypoints entirely at your own risk! If you get a 'Service Temporarily Unavailable' error then try again in a hour so - it's a problem with, they are incabable of fixing the prolem.
