I just updated the road names for the next update as well...
Adding your results to the list now.
Did you happen to test "Conn." with the period too?
I'm just saying that it's on road signs all over the place (at least up here in the North East)...GizmoGuy411 wrote:Looking at the list again, "Br" is not a good choice for "Bridge" based on the official abbreviations of the US Postal Service and the federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
"Stravenue"? Really? Are you sure that's not a typo? I mean, come on, the 'S' is right next to the 'A' on the keyboard...GizmoGuy411 wrote:At least I've heard of the word "Branch, but "Stravenue" ? I had to look that one up when I first found it in the USPS list. And as uncommon as it may be, I think it wins for having the most possible abbreviations.

1a) Changed to "Capt." for next tile update - will test "Cap" next
2) "Hosp" is pronounced "Hos-puh" (used "Hosp Rd" - i.e. "Turn Right onto Hospital Road")
2a) Changing position for further tests (Now using "Test Hosp" - i.e. "Turn Right into City Hospital")
