[Solved] Wrong city name

Post by bedo2991
I cannot find which street(s) has the "Mondano mar" string in the name field!

It should be changed to "Senigallia" how can I do that?

I don't see any any it doesn't show any in the extended tools. How long ago did you change the last segment from having the wrong name?

More than a week ago. Do I have to wait the next map sync? (Last sync 9 gen 2012)

It is tied to the map update. The city layer is simply another layer of tiles that can be turned off and on.

Yes, it is another layer but no, it is updated independently from the tiles. In the past we have seen periods of months where the citylayer did not update. I suspect its updateprocess is started manually and only if the mood of the operator allows it.
That applies to Cartouche, not so sure about the new layer in WME as there's now a new city polygon in the 2012-01-13 NA map from segments I added the city name to prior to that map build but post the one before.

My experience is that displayed names are tied to the map tile updates.

I guess all that is left is to contact support and see if they can help.
