OK, the big list says that BUS says "Business" in TTS. Would it be safe to make the following change in the Road names wiki.

From: US-90 Business S for U.S. Highway 90 Business, Southbound
To: US-90 BUS S for U.S. Highway 90 Business, Southbound

Or keep it as is?

Cord is what I will be wrapping around my neck if we go a second month with no map updates in NA.

A second month??? We're almost 3/4 of the way through the second month!

See. I am getting so whacked I forgot we are almost into our third month. :oops:

I don't remember the details, but just wanted to point that out if you see slightly different pronunciation in different cases. It could be the case or it could be cached data.

Entering cc@tts into waze's search will clear the tts cache.

It's all my phone's fault for using Tapatalk.

I have been thinking about adding the known codes into the Wiki. I started collecting what I could find in the forums. I can create the Wiki page (unless someone knows it is there and I missed it) and add what I have found so far.

I thought I have recently heard some directions not be spelled out.

I was wrong. I usually have to have the TTS off when my wife is in the car so she does not get too annoyed being reminded about the hundreds of hours I spend on Waze instead of her. :oops:

What I was hearing was really "EAST", but the "AST" portion was so quiet that the road noise drown it out.

I did notice that "W"s sound a little compressed. When I hear "Washington" it is as if I only hear the second portion of the "W" or maybe a bit of the middle of the letter's sound is missing.

I will try to update the TTS file with the code above and check it again.

It appears that Dist is not pronounced as District. Based on other threads spelling it out I assume that has never been converted to an abbreviation so I will spell it out on the Ramp name.
