    For a small price POI's that you can download to all makes and have a warning of approaching a bridge and the height.

    A couple of years ago, I couldn't deliver one of our 16 ft double deckers as other commitments so an agency driver was put in the seat:Eeek:
    Hi planted it under a bridge just about a quarter of a mile from its destination and he still delivered it to the customer with £20k of damage.
    I collected it on the next working day:ROFLMAO:

    Any of you know if these low bridge POI's are available for France, had a few close ones this year with the Garmin Nuvi 660 even though I had it set at "Bus"

    I find it very good. I use the bluetooth for the mobile phone and other than it trying to take me down a few alleys and under pedestrian bridges in France I have no complaints:thumb:
