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.

Ease your way down the highway with the nüvi 465T – our first nüvi designed specifically for the over-the-road trucking industry.
With detailed maps providing turn-by-turn directions that call out streets by name, the nüvi 465T provides specialized routing to support truck-related restrictions (customizable by height, weight, length, width and hazardous materials). Simply enter dimensions and load restrictions and nüvi 465T guides you according to your requirements.

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.
