I had a Kenwood in a Ford Taurus.
Just didn't like it.
Let it go with the car when I sold it.
Never liked the car, either.
I have a friend who loves her Kenwood double din in her Tundra.
I'm an Alpine man.

The vehicle information is in the setup menu on my 8100. On the map screen, on lower right, I touch the menu screen, scroll right to settings, then go to route preferences

. I hope this helps. Possibly the 8100 has a newer version of software. I'm still exploring these features.

You will find selecting "truck" as your vehicle and put in data, your speed limit adjusts to truck limits on the highway. I have this feature but won't use it because it isn't helpful for a A/S. I know it's height and the rest of the needed info settings required are not applicable because the A/S is not prohibited to weight or length on the road. The only roads I am aware of that does not have clearance posted is in CT. If you are in a city like Chicago, there may be city clearances that could be to low, but not too likely. I leave the setting as "car". If you specify "truck" you will be asked each time you nav a new route if your truck data is correct. Very helpful if you are driving a semi, otherwise not.

Thanks for all of the info, everyone! I came here to learn about Airstream but have found out lots more!

A tip: If you have glare or reflections on the screen on your car stereo, find an anti-glare screen protector for a tablet and cut it to size. If you'd rather get a pre-cut one, a campany called Lexerd makes them for a variety of devices. Here's their page on Amazon:

On the east coast here, we have some tunnels that prohibit propane tanks. I have the setting this way to see if the system re-routes automatically. I will report back if it occurs. I agree that this setting is not very helpful for most. Thanks.

Most propane tank prohibits apply to portable tanks, not the frame mounted tanks found on the Interstate's. You just have to make sure the propane is turned off.
