Default Disaster Averted!!!!!

How come there are still over passes that still exist that could absolutely detroy a persons TT? We were driving through Jacksonville, FL and my GPS started making this Cuckoo sound. I had no idea what was happening....about five seconds later, it hit me....I set that sound to notify me whenever a low clearance overpass was on my current route! The DW looked at the GPS and it told us a overpass measuing 10'3" was 5000 feet ahead on our route. WOW! You know, you are driving along, enjoying the world around you and it would be so easy to just drive up on this thing and it would just ruin your day, week month and year. We had time to avert the disaster. We just bought our TT in April and I saw all the videos of people forgetting they are towing a house on wheels and hitting overpasses, banks, etc. I was very concerned so I did the research. I found this website, LowClearances.com. It has downloads for over 5000 low clearances in the US for Tom-Toms, Garmin and others. This is absolutely the best thing I ever did. I just can't imaging the devastation of hiting an overpass. If anyone is intersted try this link, Happy and Safe camping everyone.

Thanks for posting the link.

That will be an aid for those with a GPS and want to buy the program.

This one is on the WEB and it's free for those of us that use a map:

HINT: IF your GPS (or other device) has a lithium ion battery in it, do NOT leave it in on the dash or exposed to the sun for an extended period of time. They can explode and cause a fire.
