    Want a very good cheap European SatNav with full vehicle width height weight taken into account? Try this one. I have the first satnav system on my iPhone and use it through a Pioneer AppRadio and it work very very well. Here it is stand alone and with a 7inch screen should be excellent. Look at the price! I really wish I'd seen it before buying th AppRadio system.

    or look on ebay and search on truck satnav. This one is sold by juggling frogs.

    Hi Timndelia, do you mean that you have the same software as this on your phone gps or is it just a similar one.
    Has any one bought or used one of these satnavs? If so could you give us a review of it. They sound too good to be true for the money.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Use an ordinary navigator and download from www.lowbridges.com where you can also get width and weight limits :thumb:

    unless you are really going down the out of the way places you possibly will never see a bridge too low for your camper. think in all my ytravels in the eu etc have only come across a couple . there is one down on the med somewhere but i doubt many get to it with their campers . i go on lots of narrow single track roads but there is normally a sign telling you well in advance . i,m asuming its for your camper on your profile .
    i have also done continental trucking and still had no probs .

    Thanks for the replies. I have a Tomtom XL. I am not looking to change it for something else, I was just wondering if any one had actually bought one and how good it was.:Smile:

    I have one of these units for work, I drive a truck. I have never found a problem with it. Had it since November and it works perfectly for me.
