    Hello all,

    I am setting up my FIL's TomTom One XL that he got at Staples for $199 CAD :)

    He is a trucker and would like to be able to check off something like 'truck routes' like you can check off 'toll routes'. In order to do this, I would need the data of course, as well as a possible 3rd party extension.

    If anyone has anything, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Tyson

    I don't know how workable this is seeing as a POI is only at one location. Definitely think your looking for a third party software.

    True - I guess that this is more meta data about the actual roads than a set of POIs.

    On a related note, I will make a separate request thread for truck stops - cross brand - Flying J, etc. As long as they are a truck stop, I would like to have it in this list. Stand by for request.

    Thanks,

    I think only Co-Pilot specializes in Truck navigation.
    These are RV POI's that you can use for trucks. Use Mapshare to block out the low clearance spots, that might help a bit.
