This has been know for a while it's a bug in the engine, the vendor will have to fix.
Ok. I'm just happy I'm not hearing things/going crazy...

Full name is Naval Air Station Patuxent River. I think this would work best for TTS; what do you think? "Pass & I.D. Office N.A.S. Patuxent River"

Depends on the desired result. "N.A.S." will say the letters NAS, whereas "NAS" will say Naval Air Station.


I think then it should be "NAS" because Naval Air Station will sound more familiar to new personnel and visitors looking for routing to the pass office. Thank you!

Can you provide a sample where this appears in segment name please?
To me it sounds like Ellis-burg


You're right, it did sound like Ellis-burg. Here's a good test segment. https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-76.62241&lat=40.95494&zoom=6&segments=42802585

Is this what it should sound like?

Just to be sure I understand, is PAX an abbreviation as well, and what should it say? ( It sounds like pax to me now)
You can use "I.D." to say the letters I D


Hi, PesachZ, Thank you for clarifying "I.D." will work. "PAX" is short for Patuxent; for this location, usual abbreviation is "PAX RIV". Full name is Naval Air Station Patuxent River. I think this would work best for TTS; what do you think? "Pass & I.D. Office N.A.S. Patuxent River"

Depends on the desired result. "N.A.S." will say the letters NAS, whereas "NAS" will say Naval Air Station.
