Garmin 1690 and MS Streets and Trips. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We tow a 40' Fifth Wheel that is 12' 8" tall. The 1690 does not have an option to choose the types of roads it routes you. I had a 2620 and I had that ability. I have not purchased MS Streets and Trips yet. 

    I would like to know if MS Streets and Trips would allow me to set up to just choose main roads in the routes it gives? I do not want short cuts on back roads where I would get into trouble.  Also low bridges are a problem. Most main highways will have high enough bridges but we still need to travel some smaller roads getting to campgrounds, etc. Is Low Clearence.com a good source of this info?

    I would like to try the MS Streets and Trips, the plan would be to load Low Clearences - have MS S+T set up to only choose main roads and then download my chosen routes into the 1690. Can someone tell me if they have done something similar and are you satisfied?
