I was just doing some testing, thanks though. I only mentioned it since it didn't look like it had been confirmed in the list.

Just a quick note to update for the big list I had to rename some ramps, "IS" and "Is" say is, instead of island.

Totally caught me off guard.

What were you expecting it to say?

I was expecting - county road see tee.

Try "CR-C T" it should give you the results you want.

I have a request for the big list. It would be really nice to have the first 8 rows frozen so you always know what column you're looking at. If you don't look at it often, it can be really daunting and confusing when you don't have the columns memorized. (or move rows 6-8 to the top and freeze them there if it takes up too much space on smaller screens)

I just think there's a better way. BGSes usually use the old-fashioned abbreviations, and I think it'd be nice to include those, with periods only, as TTS abbreviations – for example Ala. for Alabama, La. for Louisiana, Calif. for California, Penna. and/or Pa. for Pennsylvania, and so forth. We just need to come up with a definitive list.

I personally like them, they are used for control cities on many BGSs.

Re: the reply from Sketch two posts back -
I was able to drive to a county road late yesterday without going too many miles out of the way, properly labeled "CR-I" and tts did indeed pronounce it correctly as "eye". I'm too far from the road with the UR to check it out anytime soon, which is labeled "Rd I-7" but I put a message on the UR asking the reporter to confirm what he heard.
