Hi all,

A few days ago I was saved from a deluge of grief and financial
pain by my trusty GPS with the LowClearances.com database
installed.

Travelling at night north on Old Eagle School Road near
Philadelphia, I was actually on a different route from the one I’d
planned due to another low clearance (which is kind of ironic).

Anyway because of the distractions and the sign being partially
covered by a bush, I think there’s a pretty good chance I’d have
hit the 10-6 railroad bridge. However the alert sounded, I was
able to take avoiding action, and disaster was averted.

This software has really saved my bacon so I just want to share
by experience and recommend to everyone that they give it a try.

The website is: http://www.lowclearances.com


Safe driving.

Awesome.. Glad to see these devices work to make our lives safer and better.



I would also like to thank my GPS for it's service last year. While on a trip from Myrtle Beach, SC, I had a blow out on the trailer. My GPS found me the nearest campground and provided me the number. They refered me to the nearest RV tire store in the area, which was also listed in my GPS. This sure saved my bacon when you broke down in the middle of now place and not sure what is around you beyond what you can see.



Just like the credit card, I never leave home without it..



Happy camping in 2010

Seems like Trooper-D can't go anywhere without having a low clearance issue.5 post, 5 issues with low clearances.

Hey Trooper-D, ever had a flat tire or bad water pump? You can post about those things as well, you know.Edited by: shoetravel
