Interesting RCC, I would like to know how you achieved that. I use Google quite a bit and would like that option. Thx.

I went to this site: Low Clearance POI - GPS Data

For $14.97 for one year, you can download a zip file that contains map layers/add-ins, and instructions on how to add it to Google Maps.

I found one missing bridge that, frankly, is missing on about half of the low-clearance apps and maps I've looked at, and added it into mine myself. I submitted that bridge to them, so MAYBE they've added it now.

It uses a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file that you import into Google Maps as your own layer, and you can turn it on/off as you wish, and add directions to your map.

The only thing I have not figured out to do, or if it's possible, is for it to route you AROUND low clearances using Google Maps... I think not. However, it works with other devices and maps, and it says you can do it with some.

It works, but it's not my favorite solution.

Hope this helps.

Being a part-time trucker, I use a fairly current truckers atlas. Not too many worries in florida though. Trucks everywhere.

All stays shows the low bridge on Mill Creek RD going into THousand Trails Kenissee Lake RV CG NE of Cleveland. My copilot, rand McNally, google maps, and RV trip wizard all routed me thru a low bridge..like 10 feet when I set height at 13í6Ē.
You take a 1/2 mile bypass on Jefferson-Engle rd then on Forman and then back on MillCreek. the thousand trails website warns you about it.. but I normally just follow my gps after researching the days routes. Most of those donít easily allow you to put a block on a route hazard..(that their routing software will pay any attention too!

That's a new one - great share!
To the OP, I'd buy (OK, I did buy) a current trucker's atlas. Get the laminated one so you can look in a hurry if need be. They won't build any new short-clearance overpasses so I reckon we'll keep our 2019 version for a long, long time.

RCCFleetwood

Where did you find the add-in layer for Google Maps?

Never Mind, I found it.

Have you turned on "Alerts" in RVTW? If you enter your RV height, in the settings. It seems to work correctly. Since they fixed it I went back and looked at a trip from last year and RVTW correctly routed us around a 10'0" underpass. before the fix, it showed it, but did not route correctly.
