Also, check out Route One. It is a d.b. of almost 8,000 low clearance points that you can load into almost any GPS or nav app. $75 with lifetime updates. www.lowclearances.com

I would stick to highways and red line roads to get to your destination.

You can pay a one-time fee and get the data base without the lifetime updates. That's what I did, and it was worth the money. Much cheaper than the yearly rate, and I really don't think the constant update is that necessary. The number of low clearance points for 14' height is pretty small, around 1500 I believe.

The $75 rate is for both the U.S. and Canada databases. Separately, they're $45 each. All are one-time payments.

Ah, they've changed their pricing structure. It used to be on a subscription basis, now it's a one-time cost.
