About

Quale è lo scopo di boxlocator.eu?
Based upon the Openstreetmap database we show the location of vending machines and other similar amenities around the world. This website and the android application are free of charge. The same applies for our API.
We update our internal databse once a day by pulling the latest Openstreetmap diff. Changes which are done by the community (or by you) will show up on this website during 24 hours. The same applies for newly added vending machines.
