Did you send it to support? They should be able to do an exception for that.

No. Cord was an automobile produced in Indiana back in the 1930s.

A second month??? We're almost 3/4 of the way through the second month!

I already sent you a PM but since this is an issue of potential public interest I will follow up on the forum too. I can confirm that while the TTS for CONST ZN worked previously, it no longer does. I am not sure how to send the TTS file. I will search around the wiki, etc. but if you can point me in the right direction, that would be helpful. I need very basic step-by-step instructions...unfortunately. :oops:
Thanks,
LL (and yes, I have a Droid 4)


I've never heard CONST ZN work properly on the iPhone, but I don't think I had ever driven into one prior to a few months ago when some major construction started locally and I started using the labeling and then deliberately driving it to keep up with the street closures.

Is this really a street type? Post an example.

They're usually just regular streets, in this context.


Okay, I thought you were talking about a suffix. This makes sense.

Where exactly did this occur?

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.

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".


Gizmo, I guess it's possible but I know for sure that CONST ZN and Co Rd happened at the same time. I cannot say for sure about the release prior to 3.5 b/c I had so many GPS issues that I went back to the release before last....

Regardless, I will start using CR. Thanks for the hint.


How about CR-##?

I don't remember if BUS ever worked for Business, but I noticed that it did not work about 6 months ago.
