Try WAZE

Does Waze route you around low bridges? Can you enter a height for your MH?

Waze doesn't have bridge clearance as part of the app.

The correct answer LOL. If you need an APP to keep from trying to jam 13' of RV under a 12' overhead obstacle, perhaps you should not be on the road to begin with.


I went.

So what do you do when you see the low bridge ahead and you stop in plenty of time so you don't shear the top of your RV off, are you going to back up your rig to an exit a mile in your rear against oncoming traffic? That is the purpose of an APP or RV GPS that you can input your height to keep you off those roads with low bridges to begin with. I have seen at least 6 RV's and trucks in my state alone that had to call the police to hold back traffic so they could reverse their course to the previous exit.

Driving my brand new 5th wheel home, late at night, raining, freeway solid backup, I had no advance notice on the underpass listed at 13'8". Backing up would have been a nightmare. I proceeded with caution, knowing my trailer appeared to be slightly high. Spec'd height 13'5". Garmin didn't alert me, because technically I was under the entered height.
