The information is for the whole infrastructure, NA and ROTW.


HOWEVER,

[Edit: isn't there a separate thread about landmarks in the US forum?]
I would have seen that IF you had quoted the post you were talking about. I thought you were responding to the post directly above yours - which clearly was US based.

This should be a more global discussion here.

suppress traffic != suppress map problems


Landmarks prevent map problems to appear "under" the polygons. all except restricted turns and route frequently not taken.
