At the top of this screen is a Search feature. Put "low bridges" into the search box, select "all terms" and search just the POI section of the forum.

That way you will see all the previous suggestions.

But to get you started, here's a copy of an answer I gave to this question once before.

Possibly the best low bridges POI set is from www.hgvsolutions.com but I think it costs about 20.

This site also has a set (see the link to "Free POIs" on the left). The low bridges set are "premium" POIs so are only available to subscribers to this site (e.g. if you already use the speed camera database)

Some other sites you could try are:

http://www.dirksoft.co.uk/tom_tom_go.htm
http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/oldboy/TomTomPOI/index.html
http://www.poidownload.co.uk/poi/index.php
http://poiplace.oabsoftware.nl/index.php?M...OIregister3.php
http://www.poihandler.com/overview.asp
http://www.tomtomfree.com/singlePOIfile1.htm
http://www.tomtomfree.com/POI_collections.htm
http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/tomtompoi.php
http://www.poiplaza.com

You don't say which satnav you are using, but remember the main brands don't actually allow you to plan a route avoiding a POI category, so they will only WARN you as you approach a low bridge.

You might find TomTom's "Work" programme is worth looking at because I believe that DOES route around things like low bridges.

Well all except the 7'3" and 7'9" bridges are marked as premium so it looks like you can have a little taster of very low bridges without a subscription:
Code:
 Bridge - 16ft 6in (2010-07-03 : 3) Premium
 Bridge - 7ft 3in (2010-07-02 : 1)
 Bridge - 7ft 9in (2010-09-02 : 2)
 Bridge - 8ft (2010-04-19 : 3) Premium

Hmm... all low bridges should be marked as premium! I'll go fix that.

But yes, we have low bridge POI data but it requires an active subscription (which also gives you speed camera data).
