In your first link there were several issues related to the ramps names, I've fixed them, so the instructions should be a lot clearer now.

Someone had but a "to: I-275 S" instead of "to I-275 S" (note the colon).

For more information about the correct naming convention see Road Naming (USA) for more info...

Your second example looks like a textbook example of the correct way to do it (Waze processes the next name in certain circumstances).

The live map script is just returning the road names. It does not parse the phrases in the same way as the client. For example, the client does not give the continue instructions. The client does not display or say "keep right onto to." Here is the navigation list from my phone. But be aware that the visual and voice prompts do not match the navigation list exactly either.

So to be precise, I believe that the displayed instruction is as shown in the navigation list and that the voice instruction with the level of guidance set to include street names is "Stay to the right at eye four east Orlando."

"Turn Left at to I-275 Southbound"

Postby timl2k12 » Wed Jan 30, 2013 7:26 pm

OK so I navigated the local interstates for the first time in a while. What is the logic behind putting "to" in front of the name of every ramp? The instruction you get is nonsense for one and confusing, as "to" sounds like "two" so I hear "Turn left at 2 I-275 southbound" and "continue on 2 I-275 S / St. Petersburg". "At to" and "on to" (though "onto" does, but it doesn't sound like "onto") makes no sense. Shouldn't the ramps be labeled so the turn instructions make sense? How was this consensus arrived at? Shouldn't the "to" be only for destination info like "keep right onto I-4 E to Ocala" instead of "keep right onto to I-4 E / Orlando", or "continue on I-275 S to St. Petersburg" or "continue on onramp to I-275 S / St. Petersburg"?

Thanks Benson and Andy for the clarifications. The latter example, I remember hearing something that didn't sound right, but I no longer remember exactly what it was. But it did occur going from 1-4 W to I-75 N.
