Hi Tony, I can set mine to either lorry or car you put your lengths in and choose car or lorry. I choose car and trailer. I don't really like recommending things to anyone because we all like different things but in this case I really am pleased with it.

I have spoken to several of the sat nav people about the problem of avoiding unsuitable roads when towing a caravan. It seems that there is really little difference between any of them as they mostly use the same data. The problem lies in the fact that the sat nav programmers depend upon the local councils to advise if a road is narrow as they do not check roads themselves and one councils idea of what is anarrow road may not be youts . So whether you choose to purchase a higher price make or something cheap cheerful there is going to be little difference and it is up to you to look at maps or take care before going down country laned
Rather than looking for specific caravan/hgv satnavs, look for another feature. One that will offer a choice of routes and then lets you do a preview of the chosen route from start to finish. That was you can see which roads it is taking you along.
The built in satnav on my car does this and it is a very useful feature, especially when towing.
