AND what about vertical clearance????? we just about took the top off the MH following directions. Saw the 11'8" max ht sign on train trestle just in time on the same trip.
Next GPS will have "height restriction" feature...................
Doesn't it return to the normally close-up view after a few seconds? I think mine does. Tried it a while back to get the bigger picture, and by the time I looked down for another peek, it had returned to the close view. I don't have the whiz-bang latest Garmin, so possibly I'm not not addressing a current problem.
As to the overhead clearance thing ... gives me a lot of angst too. There is a nasty low clearance RR trestle south of the Escapees Raccoon Valley park. Only safe way to get to that park is from the north. We drove the toad out on a jaunt to the south and came to that low trestle. There were signs of broken air conditioner covers, vent fan covers and assorted plastic on both sides of that thing. Besides that the road is an "S" turn at the trestle. Wish I had taken a photo of the RV parts on the roadside.
