Anybody with lick of sense can look at a map and chart out a route.
I'd rather have the technology that know the size of my tow set-up and keeps me safe. I'm not saying that atlas isn't useful, it's just not a complete set of info.
I can't speak for the rest of you guys and gals, but I've got a pretty penny tied up in my 5'er and Truck - if I hit a 12'8" bridge with my 13'6" 5'er because the paper atlas said it was a valid route...I'd be pissed as hell. (pardon the language).
It's all about having the knowledge, available, and up to date to keep the risks of towing a large 5'er on public roads to an acceptable level. It's not just about getting there, it's about not getting tickets, stuck, or worse, and getting there.
