Low Clearance GPS
« on: December 14, 2009, 06:56:38 PM »

Hi everyone,

A few months ago I started using the lowclearances.com database on my
Garmin and I was asked by several people (on this forum and others) to let
them know what I thought of it.

Well I’m not much of a reviewer but in a nutshell I am impressed. It was very
easy to install, and all the hazards it has alerted me to were accurate in
location and height. So far there have been several updates of around 200
new entries which is excellent, and any questions I have emailed to them
have been answered promptly and to my satisfaction.

So basically I am very pleased and am happy to recommend it to anyone.
You can download it from http://www.lowclearances.com



On a relevant note, does anyone know how big a problem low clearance
accidents are in the USA, how many bridge strikes occur every year, and how
much it costs in damages etc. I was discussing this at my local motor club and
none of us could find any information on the internet.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

     Here is a link to a website that has free low clearance downloads as well as many others, including most truckstops, crackerbarrel, COE areas, etc.  http://www.discoveryowners.com/cginfolinks.htm
    I know it works with MS Streets & Trips, Delorme, and Co-Pilot , not sure about other brands.  Just realize any source is no better than the database it uses.  Jack
