D-Day GPS Addresses

This Spring I will be touring (by private car) the D-Day sites. I have a good itinerary going from the Pegasus Bridge in the east to the Ste-Mere-Eglise area in the west. The info have suggests entering the locations on your GPS before you start. I have some addresses but my GPS (Nuvi 275) does not recognize most. Is the a site where I can get addresses for the various museums and sites that my GPS will recognize?

Go to google earth and use that to home in on the sights that you want to visit. The latitude and longitude is in the lower right of the screen. Pegasus bridge is 49degrees, 14' 33.33" North latitude; 0 degrees 16' 29.83" West longitude. The American Cemetery behind Omaha is 49degrees 21' 34.53" N ; 0 degrees 51' 17.70" W. You might get on the Normandy, Bayeux, or Caen forums on tripadvisor.com to ask specific addresses there. Residents of those towns will likely steer you to addresses or probably websites. The American Battle Monuments Commission is another good source of Normandy data and cemeteries in France, www.abmc.gov.
