    @Ludo - What vehicle parameters have you set (length, width, height and weight)?

    @ Wojpen,

    Have set Truck profile, lenght 17,30m height 4,35m, width 2,5m, weigtht allowed 60t, real weight 44t, see pictures below.

    As far as i can tell, the program doesn't have info from maps above the maximum height limit of 4m.
    It think it calculates with info from everything less than 4m height and compares this with the truck profile settings, so when you have a bridge of 3,80m he will take another route, but when you have set the height to 4,35m, he doesn't calculated that anymore, just from the maximum height of 4m.

    I know one thing for sure, i don't get any warnings when route is calculated, and i can't drive with 4,35m, we have a lot of normal road crossing/bridges and most of them are maximum 4,15m.

    I looked at it with both map providers, tried alternative routes and when you have the route calculated and it shows on the sreen you have the option arrow ( right below ) and the restrictions button is grayed out ( looks like he can't see any restrictions ).
    Made a screenshot of it, last picture.

    Grtz. Ludo.

    The truck.zip UX provide alert icons for restrictions, they look like this

    @ Osiris4isis,

    I know, i have the program from the op so i do have the truck zip, only my signs look different.

    Only it doesn't seem to work when you set the parameters in the truck profile outside the maximum country limit or standard values.
    It assumes that you don't go over the maximum height level for the Netherlands wich is 4m.
    So you can put as height 5m in you're truck profile, but it stil says you're good to go......

    Maybe i can try to put you're truck zip and see if it makes any difference ?

    Grtz. Ludo.

    @ Osiris4isis

    I deleted my truck ux and put Truck(world)zip in place, started the program, calculated the same route, but no changes, works the same as before.

    When i think about it, i never had any of the signs seen on screen yet, i do have driver alerts and they work, but that's something else.
    I can see DA signs when i'm in the menu and test TTS function, but i don't see Truck Restriction Signs in this menu.
    Is this correct ? Is there a menu where i can see the warning signs ?

    Under the info menu licenses and truck info and others, everything is in white and should be active.

    Grtz. Ludo

    That is what I'm saying. For those who keep saying that it works, it might not work "fully." Having ability to set extended settings, doesn't mean it's working. Driver alert (DA) is not same as truck alerts. There is no TTS test for truck alert. I have posted the truck alert icon images for those who might seen it working (but I doubt it). When I test truck.zip (World) on Gift, I don't see any truck alert icons. I don't see any routing changes due to truck restriction. But I did remember seeing notification warnings for truck restriction.
    It's ironic that truck.zip for World doesn't work for World!

    It looks to me, that you are right, i'm gonna test a route i drove last friday and set my height at different height and see if he calculates another shorter route.

    I always thought i had a full working truck profile, but now i'm not so sure anymore.

    Post my results here in a few minutes

    Thx for helping

    Set my route from last friday, to 3 different heights, and i have 3 different routes, so i Do think truck profiles really working, only doesn't give notices.
    Maybe only when you're driving without a route, because when you have a planned route, the program had you take a route where he doesn't need to warn you anymore.

    There is a warning of truck profile in the menu given when you look at the route overview, and i had thise on screen before, so again i think truck profile is working.

    Spoiler: Truck Profile Warning ?
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    With the height at 3,5m you drive under de black/yellow railroad bridge (3,8m), with the height at 3,99m like i always have it, you take the route as shown.
    The warning in the pic, (is the 4th sign on you're truck ux picture) says : Forbidden For Trucks ( Except Delivery )

    According to the change listed for NextGen9.18.27.693527-World(14Mar2017), it was to add Truck restriction. But you couldn't even access extended settings (I spent a lot of time debugging and there are flags that should be true but aren't.) NextGen9.18.27.687519-Gift(26Jan2017) on the other hand, allow extended settings but I suspect it doesn't do anything since you really need code to do something with those settings, I took truck.zip from World and I get notification when I drive on restricted street. I don't get any alert icons (which probably due to coding incompatibility in .css). And routing doesn't show anything different (probably routing engine doesn't have code to do truck restriction)
    Anyway, take it with a grain of salt and don't assume it will worked as in iGO/Primo.

    I do agree, i am not 100% convinced it works, but however it does give me other route calculations on one route, but another route it doesn't seems to be right.

    Other hand , I am very pleased with this NextGen Gift version and I never got in trouble before.

    Just keep in mind that's its just an assistance and you should always use you're common sense.

    Save journeys for everyone, and if I can help test or something just let me know.

    When I discover something truck related i will post it here.
    Right now I'm driving without a route and go play with different heights.

    Grtz. Ludo.
