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.

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

You can download it at http://www.lowclearances.com

It looks really good.

Thanks again.

Trooper:
We have this program. It works, but the POI took a little hair pulling to install into our Garmin.

Co-Pilot is a great PC program that lists all heights, truck stops, and other interests, all related to truckers. But, since our coach is literally a truck made into a home, we also have this program.

Microsoft Streets and Trips is also a program worth looking into.

Gotta be able to go under those bridges and overpasses, without plugging them.
