Shhhhh! No need to shout. Smile

Your best bet might be a model (or map) designed for truck drivers.

TomTom sell a couple of dedicated "Truck" models the TomTom PRO 7100 TRUCK and PRO7150 TRUCK with larger screen, based on the Go1000 platform. You can find them here, , but they don't come very cheap


Quote:
This solution uses smarter navigation to plan better routes for drivers by featuring route information optimised for transport and logistics companies such as clearance heights, weight restrictions*, speed restrictions and avoiding problematic sharp turns.


You might be able to find the older TT 7000 (based on the Go720 hardware too.

There also used to be a "Truck" map you could buy on SD card which (with the right software version) you could use on other TomTom models, but I haven't seen that for a while. This reseller used to do them.

I have a largish motorhome and now tow my car behind when I need to visit an area with narrow roads. I have put off buying a truck/caravan/motorhome satnav because of the cost premium. My (Navigon) unit gives me a choice of Car or Lorry and I choose the Lorry if travelling in a new area.
