https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-98.59 ... s=48129505 The 2 I-10 west TTS directions came to direct me to the highlighted segment. I have not yet tested any other entrance segments on this stretch of road.

It's most likely because the word "To" on the ramp is capitalized, which doesn't conform to the standard.

I'm going to send a PM to the editor in question and make sure this is just a typo and not widespread.

Remember there was a period of time when auto-capitalization just started where the word "to" was not exempt & it was automatically changed to "To", so there may be more ramps out there like this...

I just drove this route again today, and the TTS was correct this time! https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-98.59 ... s=48129505 The "to" is also now lower case in the editor. However I see that there are several (could be many) instances of upper case "To" all around. My experience must have been a one-time thing if no one else has come across the "stay left on to I XX".

Co Rd is now pronounced as "Coe Road" and not "County Road". Also contrary to naming conventions on the wiki. Again, this is a new issue, not a problem up until this release...

That was during July or Aug this summer. I have a bunch around me that came from my edits during that time.

St at the end is now saying Saint. Will look into this at my end as I didn't name it and it might have a dot.

OK its all St are now saying Saint. Wtf guys? The Street Paul's Street I could live with as Saint is only some roads, but now every Street is Saint, seriously sort it out and revert all recent changes to the UK TTS. Or better yet, give one of us access to the rules on Vocalizer and we can do it in a few minutes!

Are you sure, because I could swear that it has been that way for a while. We have a ton of county roads in NW Ohio, and we have slowly been changing them to "CR xxx" as we canvas the rural areas. "CR" does get pronounced correctly as "County Road", and not to be confused with "Country Road".
