USA AFV Map & Garmin GPS files available for download
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: USA AFV Map & Garmin GPS files available for download

Hello All,

Over the last 2 years, I've been working on making Google Maps broken down by state of the AFVs listed in the USA AFV Register. I wanted to have every publicly accessible AFV location in my Garmin GPS to facilitate visiting and documenting. I DID NOT include privately owned vehicles (for the most part) and noted as much as I could locations that are not publicly accessible (such as Camp Lejune in NC that is inaccessible to civilians.) I made corrections to the registry entries of address or GPS, SN & RN info and some notations such as noting NG Armory closings to the best of my ability.

The downloads are the KML/KMZ files for Google Earth or Google Maps, the Garmin GPX files (which can be uploaded into a Garmin GPS using the POI loader app) and the Excel files I used to create the maps (Some are generated from KML files so there are 2 slightly different formats on the Excel files.)

Michel has been kind enough to agree to host them on his site and they are available for download. Go to:

www.afvregister.org/Download.aspx

and download away!

Also - if there is enough demand, Michel is willing to convert the KML/KMZ files into the ov2 format for TomTom GPS units.

Please feel free to use these resources and to use the Excel files as a basis to contribute knowledge and information that you may have and that would benefit the AFV community.

Many thanks to all of you that have had a hand in creating the AFV Registers and other means of documenting and informing those of us that care about and are interested in AFVs. The resources created and maintained by this community are priceless!!

Cheers,
PH

Just discovered bug . . . The .gpx file labeled Ohio is actually a duplicate of the Oregon listing.

FYI - I'm planning on updating the Google Map and Garmin GPS files with the updates to the latest US AFV Register when I can find the time to do so.

Kurt - check your PMs.
