1 year of POI excellence and low clearance avoidance.

Unread postby Trooper-D on Wed May 26, 2010 9:23 pm

One year ago after seeing a horrible bridge collision I decided to investigate
low clearance avoidance tools. After a great deal of searching, by far the
most cost effective solution was to download a low clearance POI
database for my GPS.

There were a few free ones out there to download but they were very limited
in size (around 300 - 500) which isn't much use so I figured I would risk 20 bucks
and get a professionally made one which had over 3000 low clearance alerts.

I've been so impressed with it that I made several positive comments on quite a
few forums in the hope that other drivers will follow suit and avoid these
potentially fatal accidents.

If you're interested (and you really should be) you can get it from
http://www.lowclearances.com . I use a Garmin but you can also install it on
MS Streets & Trips, Delorme Street Atlas, Google Earth, TomTom, and Navman.


Safe driving.
