Default Low Bridges

I have recently had a few close calls with low bridges that could easily have resulted in a bad accident.

Does anyone know of a good GPS system or add on for my Garmin that would give a low bridge warning?

Something like a speed camera POI list could work, but I can't seem to find anything.

Many thanks.

The Garmin nüvi 465T was made for truckers. I might get one sometime.

Thanks everyone for your helpful advice.

I have decided to try a POI database that has been recommended to me on several forums.

You can download it at : Blocked

It looks really good.

Thanks again.
