Not only am I a total newbie to Wild Camping...I am a total newbie to wild camping and a total newbie to camper vans (just had one converted by Kahuna Campers in Wigan - amazing). There is only two of us in our 'team', my son Billy (12yrs old) and me (Ian 51yrs old). Sadly, my wife passed away in 2016 leaving us to move forward in life without her. I will not lie...it has been really tough at times. But we have managed to get to this point in our lives and now (after much deliberation) with a camper van we hope to start really living again and making the most of what time we have together before Billy runs off to Uni, or whatever life has in store for him. With this in mind, we have joined Wild Camping in the hopes the more experienced in here (if you have slept overnight in a camper van you are more experienced than us) could help us make the most of the ventures we undertake. So to begin with...I have the app on my phone. And that's it. I have no idea what to do with it. I have...

Hello Ian from another dad/lad combo! Hope you both enjoy your new van. Becoming a full member on here gives you full access to the POI map, & the other 2 sites, motorhomer & motorhomebuilder. Worth joining for the many discounts etc you qualify for as a full member. Any ideas where you fancy starting off from? We go to the east coast/ North yorks moors quite often & find all sorts of places to park overnight. Get out there & enjoy yourselves, it'll all become obvious the more you do...👍😉

Hi both. And thanks. I just signed up for full membership. Bit confused as the email I got said £14.95/yr but when I clicked the link it was £19.95? But I have signed up anyway. Will I have instant access now? What do I do?

Will I have instant access now? What do I do? When you access the POI maps as a full member, I believe you'll get a code to put in which will let you see all the info on the map. There's a table somewhere telling you what the different codes mean & you can alter the map view to satellite view etc. Have fun & find somewhere local to start with, just visit the pois in your car & have a look at a few....

I think i would delete the app then download again.It's also worth reading the poi help section in the forums.

Hi and welcome :) When you're ready to take a look at motorhomercom and motorhomebuilder.com, just log on to each one with the same email address you used to register here. Then, after a while, the system will recognize you and automatically make you a full member on all 3 sites. Hope you enjoy the forums and your new camper. I just installed the 3.3 version of the app on my Android phone to see what had to be done. If you click on the big W in the app, you'll have an option to register the device. Go to this page on the forum - https://wildcamping.co.uk/poidownloads.php - and it will give you the code you need to register. Once that's done, it'll ask you if you want to check for POI updates. Say yes and download the POI files. Then, in the app, click on the little man with the flag and choose the POI sets you want to see on the map. Hope it works for you (y)

Oh dear :( I'm gonna have to leave it to the expert then! I'm sure Admin will respond to your contact 'ticket' soon. Meanwhile, maybe have a look at the online map instead - just for now.

Welcome :D You will find the instructions for the app here: https://wildcamping.co.uk/threads/wild-camping-app-version-2.43019/ The POI locations can also be accessed using the online POI Map. And if you have a standalone sat nav or use a sat nav app the POIs can be downloaded and installed for use offline. The POI formats provided are for Garmin, Google Earth and TomTom.
