Weight Routing

I see that i can enter the weight of my vehicle but if I add my weight and select RV routing versus standard, will it actually take me on roads/routes where my vehicle is not allowed due to weight limit? Has anyone with heavier vehicles used this successfully?

Can you post a pic of your RV Info and Routing and Driving tabs and give a specific example of a road that it's putting you on? Seems unlikely, but also worth vetting.

You didn't fill in your signature. What are you driving that you are concerned about weight?

I use two different navigation apps (Sygic and CoPilot) Both do a fine job of routing around low clearances and weight restrictions. But do I explicitly trust them or any other gps to be 100% accurate? Heck no! Bridge clearances and weights are reported by the government agencies that are in charge of that particular bridge and they self report to a larger database that everyone draws their data from. Federal and State highways have never been a problem, but on the back roads I like to travel I occasionally encounter restrictions that are not shown on the GPS. Donít rely totally on your gps to keep you out of trouble. BTW weigh and measure the actual height of your rig yourself. Manufacturers specs are seldom correct.

Trip Wizard do a pretty good job of routing around hazards based on what you enter in your RV information. But as RickNC says, no device or piece of software in existence today will be 100% reliable to route you around hazards. Always cross check with as many alternate sources as you can, and even then you may wind up going down the wrong road every now and then.
