2. i saw hwys with alternative names in parentheses? and alternative names with no cities? why?
as stated in the link above, a problem with CITY labels/names came up eventually.
the WME started returning errors stating "The highlighted road is too far from the city it was added to." because the STATE (Province) label is not activated in the INTL SERVER.
this was consulted with the waze team and currently cannot give a direct solution for this issue and instead gave examples of temporary work arounds other countries did... by attaching suffixes.
compiling the names of cities/municipalities and provinces of the Philippines, this was the quickest alternative that was whiffed up. there are 124 city/municipalities that repeats into 361. SAN JOSE alone repeats 10 times or is present in 10 provinces. (kindly refer to the link above)
waze said that as soon as the STATE(province) would be fixed, this would address the issue.
if you're referring to the "N1 : Pan-Philippine (Maharlika) Hwy", Pan-Philippine is the official name but is referred to locally as Maharlika so it had to be inserted as such.
the alternate names with no city labels wouldn't reflect on the client app and was left without.
