Hello, R2 editor here. A Point Place is named Pass & ID PAX NAS. When I navigated to it today, Jane said it as, "Pass and Idaho Paz Naz". Is there an acceptable abbreviation for "Identification"? PL is https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... 107.645656 Thank you.

The syntax to fix this is the segment name should be "St. Augustine" The period is used to distinguish between Saint and Street.

Kayos



I can assure you this works exactly as described by Kayos_On_The_Road. St. Petersburg and St. Augustine are in Florida and we have these ramps named as described.

It only should happen when MD is a word by itself, or when it is part of a route name like MD-123. Can you give an example of an actual street where this is an issue? Please include the full street name, and the permalink.

Cv = Cove is now active

FM (with or without the hyphen) = Farm to Market is now active. Once you decide which one you want to use, please let me know so we can disable the other. We can leave both for the transition period if necessary.
