Hi,
Does anyone know if there is currently any update to allow a TomTom GO 910 to plan routes for Heavy Lorries i.e. staying on main routes etc. and avoiding small villages with weight limits and width limits?

If not available yet is anything planned for the near future?

Cheers Keith

No, though there are height limit POIs available... www.lowbridges.com

In general though, you should find that it does avoid minor roads if you choose the 'fastest route' option.

130,000 miles without being lost once! Rough calcs means that the Go saved me about 1,125 wuids of fuel / running costs so far!

Yes - but currently France and Germany only, with no news if/when UK will happen. :(

The question was about availability 'in the near future' and I was assuming UK. Sorry if my 'no' caused confusion; but it is accurate for UK.
