Remarks

Each Route, Navigator and NavigationManager has a VehicleSpec. When optimizing a route, or obtaining driving directions the Route, Navigator or NavigationManager will consider the attributes specified in its VehicleSpec property to ensure that the route is safe.

Use the SetLoadInfo(Int32, LoadType, UInt32) method to configure the load that the vehicle is carrying. This load may include HAZMAT designations. See LoadType for possible designations.

You may use the ConvertUnits(Double, DistanceUnit, DistanceUnit) to convert between distance units.

Note that it may be necessary to call ForceRecalculate if a vehicle's specifications are changed after a route has been calculated.

Examples
C#
VehicleSpec vs = new VehicleSpec();
vs.VehicleType = VehicleType.StraightTruck; // straight flat-bed truck
vs.Height_cm = 467; // about 15 feet
vs.SetLoadInfo(0, LoadType.Forestry, 2000); // 2 tonnes of timber
vs.SetLoadInfo(1, LoadType.Hazmat_3, 80); // 80 kg of paint 

myRoute.VehicleSpec = vs;
// now, when we call myRoute.GetDirections() the route will be calculated
// for a 15'-high truck carrying 2 tonnes of timber and 80 kg of paint...
