    Truck, Caravan and Lorry are things that uses "extended" settings. You can find a copy of trunk.zip UX at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Do not PM me with questions. That's what a forum is for.

    The "extended" SETTINGS are provided in vehicle_selection.zip UX for SOME proggy, NextGen9.18.27.687519-Gift(26Jan2017) is one. The truck.zip UX provide additional capability like notification. Furthermore (as I have said) in addition to settings, the routing engine, licensing, truck data (.ftr) and truck capability must all be valid for proggy to "fully" worked. Case in point, try to use a copy of truck.zip UX for World* on NextGen9.18.27.693527-World(14Mar2017) will NOT work. Nuff said, bottom line is this, you get it working (FULLY) then post what works for what proggy; and look at the codes when it doesn't work to find out why.

    * The problem is that when proggy are posted, they are seldom a complete post. UX's are often taken from previous version or another version and that doesn't always work

    Hello All,

    I'm a truckdriver from the Netherlands, i use igo for many years, and i think it's the best.

    The option for driving time in my opinion is worthless, it's not reliable if you don't use the program for the 15 hours working time.
    Today almost every truck has it built in so you don;t have to worry about it anymore, simply check you're display.

    I've Got iGO Gift 9.18.27.687519 26Jan2017 and i can confirm it is working very wel with truck routes, i can see differernt routes being calculated.
    For example today, my truck built in navi took a route 4km shorter with a tunnel of 3,80m, so can't go through that route.
    iGO drove around, took another highway and exit and i came on the adress at the other end of that tunnel.

    I didn't get any notices when it was calculating the route, or anything at all to warn for this restrictions, but he simply choose the right route for my truck profile.

    I have both TomTom maps and here, but for me Here maps work the best, most accurate, but that may be different to other countries.

    If someone has questions, or has to test, i am willing to help.

    Good luck to you all, and keep up the good work.

    Only question i got is if it's possible to install iGO in my on board truck nav/radio system, i drive a Scania and it has the Premium radio, if someone has any info on that, please be free to PM me.

    grtz. Ludo

    Try this test, turn off on a street not chosen by the truck route and see if you get a notification/warning about it. Please use the term NextGen and not iGO when referring to it. The term iGO/Primo is for old generation product. I know NNG stupidly call NextGen as iGO Primo NextGen (yeah that's it's full named on their website) and it's confusing (and they call Primo as iGO Primo)

    You're right Nextgen is easier, for not make mistakes in versions.

    I will set the maximum height to 4,20m en will test it monday morning and report it here.

    Update :

    I set a route with height parameter to 4,30m, this road i have to take monday, looked at the route he's giving me, and it's not correct.
    I come across 3 tunnels, neither one of them can be passed with that height, i know for sure, maximum height in the Netherlands is 4,00m.
    At the first 2 tunnels he drive's straight trough, the third tunnel he make's a detour and crosses the bridge, so that's the only good option.

    So after looked at it, i can confirm that truck-profiles are not 100% accurat, tested with Here and TomTom maps.
    I think is must be info from map providers wich isn't complete.....

    grtz. Ludo.

    Hi Wojpen,

    Started in Hoogerheide Netherlands, to street : Nieuwesluisweg in Rotterdam.

    There are 3 main routes you can travel, 2 by highway and 1 option national roads, the 2 routes by highway i will explain.

    First option take the A29 towards Rotterdam, you come through the Heinenoord Tunnel, it's not possible with height 4,30m

    Second option take A16 towards Rotterdam, there you have the Drecht Tunnel, it;s limited to 4,15m en it's possible to take a detour via the Bridge, but he drives straight through.

    On the last part we have the A15 and come across the Botlek Tunnel, limited at 4,10m this one he avoids by taking the bridge, wich is the good solution.

    Thanks mate, i will check more routes when i'm on the road.

    I never had checked my routes before but i never ran into trouble either, yesterday a collegue warnt me for the 3,8m, so i decided to use my factory installed nav/radio and my phone with Nextgen, wich i always use.
    They came up with different routes, and because i trusted my NextGen much more i followed NextGen and everything was fine, took a detour from 4km, but it's the only way for trucks, so i'm very pleased how it works.

    In the Netherlands the maximun height is 4,00m and almost every tunnel is secured with a limit of 4,1m maximum.

    If you do have other questions, just let me know, thanks for helping
