DAT trucker services and RV Parky and RV parkfinder all work on Android as well as I-products.

In addition if you use mapping software the discovery owner's club has a public download page with data files (map overlays or import files) showing all wall marts as of date of compilation. I can attest to the fact it has a few errors but nothing serious.

If you have a GPS, you can also select it to search for the WalMart you desire.

You can download POI's here:

There is a link to all the Walmarts and it list them by state. It also list which ones that allow overnight parking. I printed it out and keep it in the rv. I still check with the manager before I park. Hopefully here is the link. http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/walmartrving

X2 ... On the AllStays app. It is updated with more "reviews" frequently. I look for the reviews. Also I add my opinion for every park, truck stop or rest area that we visit. It helps others get a heads up on what to expect. I have a fetish about finding the best entry and exit for places like Wal-Mart and truck fuel stops.

Walmart no park list, and it's long. Copy to a word file.

Run into two Wal-marts on my trip this summer that have poles set at 10'2". One was in sullivan Mi on I 44. The other was East end of Amarilla Tx. on I 40. Watch out for the poles.

The Rand McNally GPS has them all programed in with the push of a button it lists them all by distance from your location, city, if parking is allowed and the phone number and will then program the route into the gps.

I tried this and it works now. Thanks for the info. I must have done something wrong before.

I know what you are talking about. I've encountered overhead barriers at a few Wal-Marts too. If possible, I preview all entries with Google street view. Normally the truck entries are best anyway. Then I maneuver up to a wide open area in the car parking lot. Always keeping in mind that I have to exit via the truck access spot.
