You need to have spaces on both sides of the slash characters, per the naming guidelines.

Figured it was something simple like that. That's hopefully fixed now. Thanks :D

I noted others in the area, too. You'll probably be going around fixing a bunch now?

Later today or tomorrow. Ah, the editing never ends. Also, hopefully they are all level 3 or below segments.

Hi, in the client version "est" is an abbreviation for "estate" but in the quebec province in canada some roads use the term "Est" meanning "East" in english,...

i can see 2 solutions... and 1 option

1- Remouve the abbreviation and change all the recurrence of "est" for "estate" in all north america !!

2- Miss spelling the word "Est" so it dosent come as an error to the ear's of wazers but typing error... but for waze immage

3- Simply add an control ponctuation that confirm that an abbreviation is in place

This error is also on page 19 of this topic !!

Thanks

Why not just use the global standard of E for east?

Because east does not sound like est, perhaps?

I can't think of any compelling need to keep est as an abbreviation for estate. I don't recall ever needing it.

It apparently hasn't been tested, but does anyone know whether "Univ" is pronounced "University"?

It is not. At least with no trailing period. Just pronounced "you-niv".

Is there a preferred solution for business route syntax? With or without a period, TTS pronounces it "bus" as in Greyhound Bus Lines.

I've been spelling out "business". I'd rather have waze say "I-20 business" instead of "I-20 bus".
Just wazeting my time to help you waze your route smoothly.
