If you have a GPS system such as TomTom, Garmin etc. our co-ordinates are :

North : 43. 27' 463" and East : 6 25' 690"

Please Note

In 2012, changes were made to French legislation regarding GPS systems which have made it illegal to use systems that notify you of the locations of speed cameras (fixed or mobile) while driving.  If your device has a safety camera warning facility, and you continue to use it, you are liable to a fine of € 1,500 and the withdrawal of 6 points on your driver's license.

Therefore, it is extremely advisable to amend your GPS system to comply with the law in France.
