I just purchased a Go Professional 620 and can only set the width to a maximum of 2.60m when I regularly carry loads that are 2.90m wide. I would like to know how I can enter dimensions greater than the current restrictions in the software, is there any recommendations on how to get around this?

    Surely with a load width of 2.90m there is a need for an escort vehicle and a police approved route? Sticking to an approved route probably means the SatNav is redundant.

    @tonygr. You can carry loads up to 3.5m without the need for an Escort or second man in the vehicle.

    Apologies.
    My mistake

    Surely if these widths are regularly permissible why does TomTom work to 2.6m? Is the limit in Other countries more onerous?

    @tonygr. The normal width of an HGV trailer is around 2.6m give or take a few mm. So I think this is where TomTom would get that limit from. It's just a guess though.

    Construction and Use Regulations indicate a maximum of 2.5m (except for refrigerated lorries at 2.58m for some reason) but I take your point. It would be helpful if TT took the permitted load widths into account
