[Request] Truncate City Names to first comma

Postby EduardoCarvajal » Sat Nov 09, 2013 12:25 pm

Hi,

In Costa Rica and in many other countries, the city Name is not unique, so we adopt the following naming convention:

City, District, Canton

District and Canton are country subdivisions (territorial/administrative subdivision in some countries)

This naming convention works fine, but to clean Navigation maps, when showing the city name in map, please truncate the name to the first comma.

For example, instead of display the long city name: "Los Almendros, Bataan, Matina", display a short city name: "Los Almendros"

Of course, this only applies to city names on map. It's very import to show the long city name on search results.
