Bridge clearanc

Is there an iPhone app that help with bridge clearance and re routes you if too low. If not what foes everyone use? I don't want to get in a back situation because of low clearance

I use a Garmen RV 760 LMT GPS, not aware of phone apps that do this.

X2, plus I just started using Basecamp so I'm thinking about buying the POI from Low Clearance POI - GPS Data so I can show low bridges on the planned route and then download to "Gabby"

I use a Rand McNally RV GPS. You can input what type of trailer you have along with the dimension of said trailer plus the weight. You can also pick what type of highways that you would like to travel on such as no interstate/toll roads and so forth. I have had mine for over 6 years and will not pull with out the GPS on board. I also have life time map updates.

I would look at Amazon. Com for the best prices. Make sure that you can obtain some sort of lifetime map update or the unit will be useless after two years.

As an example when the flood waters destroyed the I10 bridge in CALF/AR area earlier this year.Rand McNally put out an update with in two days to route RV's around this road block. This was free to all owners who had Lifetime map updates.

I use the low clearance POI on my Garman model 2555 and it works well. The set up is a little tricky and you should follow the directions exactly to have it work properly. The drawback is that it is a POI point of interest in the GPS so the route will not change around the low clearance. I have mine set at 2 miles to warn me of a low clearance. If you want the full meal type deal you should go with a truck or RV type of GPS that will route you according to height, weight, and length.

I use the Good Sam Club trip planner on their website to check the route before I go. If, however, I get re-routed for something, I'm kinda outta luck.

Allstays Camp and RV app has a map function that can show low clearances, but I haven't really figured it out fully.
