I know with Magellan GPS you can buy a pogram for Trucks/RV's for \$ 149.00 that lets you input weight, height etc. maybe on Tomtom's website they have something like this available. Sorry not to be able to help you more.

### Difference board feet and lineare ft dimmensionaly

Broadly speaking, a linear foot is one dimensional, with the buyer getting a type of wood that is so many feet long. I want 6' of 2x4.

Broadly speaking, a board feet is a three dimensional measure. "A board foot is any dimensional equivalent of 1" x 12" x 12", such as 1" x 6" x 24", or 2" x 6" x 12"."

The link has a good discussion of this. The problem is wood is trimmed and referred to as the gross dimensions. For example, 6' of 2" x 4" is really 6' of 1 1/2 x 3 1/2. This complicates matters because if it close to 1" thick, it is considered 1"

Good luck,

Paul

### How many cubic yards for a 20x12 slan 4 inches thick

Assuming that 20x12 means 20 feet by 12 feet, then you take the three values in feet - 20, 12, and .333 (4 inches is 1/3 foot).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:
12 x 20 = 240
240 x .333 = 79.92
Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

### A book box 17 x 13 x 8 inches is how many cubic feet?

First get the number of cubic inches by multiplying the three value provided.

17 x 13 x 8 = 1768 cubic inches

Then determine the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot:
12 x 12 x 12 = 1728 cubic inches

Determine the value in cubic feet by dividing the number of cubic inches in the box by the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot:

1768 divided by 1728 = 1.023148148148... cubic feet

There are 12 inches in a foot. So if you imagine a square foot, it is 12 inches by 12 inches, or 144 square inches in a square foot. So take you number and divide it by 144.

Good luck.

### Shortest Route and Fastest Route Garmin Nuvi 200

The problem could be in your avoidance settings. I know when I was in Delaware, a 1/2 hour trip turned out to be a 3 hour detour because I had set to avoid highways.

In Garmin, if it's checked, it means AVOID. I know the documentation isn't clear but I've learned from experience (trial & error).

Sometimes it happens. Garmin isn't perfect but it beats looking at a map most of the time.
