If there is a common naming convention, which we talked about and I posted a proposal of earlier, then it should be clear based on what road you are on and where you are going, and where you are now.
Wiki wrote:The landmark should be named as follows, using the highway name and cardinal direction as part of the name for POI search purposes: "I-10 W Rest Area", "Pennsylvania Turnpike E Service Area" if commercial restaurant/fuel is offered, or "Tennessee Welcome Center" for official state welcome centers. If the rest area is given a name by the state D.O.T., it may be used, e.g., "Dizzy Dean Rest Area".

Not quite. My post a few pages back has this:"<interstate/route short name with cardinal> MP xxx Rest Area|Service Area|Rest Stop|Parking Area|Scenic Area|Wayside Park|Roadside Park|Picnic Area"
- US-45 N MP 13 Service Area
- I-15 S MP 443 Rest Area
- SR-14 E MP 133 Scenic Area
