    Personally I would stick with a Garmin.

    The main problem with "large vehicle" sat navs is that the road width data on the map databases is not sufficiently detailed.

    The software won't (or at least, shouldn't) send you down a road which is flagged as too narrow but if the road width is unflagged the software has no way of knowing whether it is wide enough or not.

    Save some money and go for a Garmin plus a printed road atlas to enable checking.

    because it's a demountable and sometimes it's on you tend to forget the height

    You can download low bridge POIs from a number of places for use with the likes of Tom Tom and Garmin.
