Garmin's new lane assist Nuvi is coming
Not sure if we will get the same model as US, it is yet to be released in the states

You need to know more things about the road such as lane widths, bridge heights, and load restrictions. The Nuvi 465T allows the owner to build multiple “profiles” for multiple vehicles and then create routes which obey the appropriate restrictions. This Nuvi also includes locations from the National Truck and Trailer Services Breakdown Directory for truck towing and repair needs.

In addition, many more traditional navigation features are included like traffic, lane assitance, multi-destination routing with route optimization, text-to-speech, a widescreen display, and Bluetooth.

Hi Skippy

I will look at these new capabilities with interest.

I have recently spent a week in Perth and took my GPS276c
(just as well as hire car didn't come with directory - but they would rent you a navigator for $20 a day)

This is probably the first time I have used it intensivly in a high traffic enviroment on roads I knew nothing about.

While it performed well overall, I had specific issues in that I could not navigate a multilane freeway with multiple runoffs due to combination of GPS position accuracy
and the need to zoom in to 200m to determine where you were across lanes , and still flow with traffic and also
still look ahead far enough to determine the right lane.

Some of the potential new parameters might cover this blind spot - although I suspect it will require information "After the fact"

I also have a cheap chinese 7" GPS running Igo8 and I think it's brilliant but I wonder if the screen on the 465t will show the lane arrows clearly
I think Sensis are working on the lane assist now where navteq software is already in use
EO and 5th Wheeler drivers will also find the low bridge information useful
