Does our TomTom Go 750 Live have a system to direct me to take a route which is suitable for a larger vehicle? We were recently in Devon and the route we were given on our Satnav was ridiculous for our motorhome. How can we ensure the route we are following is wide/high enough?

I don't think so. Type "motorhome" into the search box top right of this page to see another post on this subject.

I wonder if advance planning using something like Google would work. You couldn't judge bridge openings, but you might be able to find corners too tight to manuerver etc., by zooming in; using street view, etc. I have not tried it, but you supposedly can import Google maps (and perhaps others) into some TomTom's.

No...no tomtom that i know of has commercially based software it is a matter of the user knowing what routes would be suitable for the vehicle. I drive a commercial motor coach and I have a go 740live and 2535live...it has the ability to choose via points and modify the route if you choose not go on a route on the 2535 the button says change route then avoid part of the route, similiar for the 740 each road you choose to NOT include will modify the route and tailor it to your needs until tomtom creates commercial software know before you "GO"
