    Hello there.my wife and I tour England and Mainland Europe in our 2005 Autotrail Dakota.What we would really like is to be able to enter the wieght,width and hieght of our motorhome so that our Tom Tom refrains from trying to send us down unsuitable roads. Has anybody else raised this??

    Don't be fooled by the mention of http://www.hgvsolutions.com/ in that discussion. That "product" does NOT alter the routing of the TomTom at all. As "Megalos" says, it's just a collection of POIs that you can get for free or much cheaper elsewhere.
    With those POIs installed, any TomTom will WARN you when you approach a low bridge etc. but will not create routes that avoid them.

    Only the "Truck" models mentioned will do that, but they are very expensive.
