[mkgmap-dev] Highway:symbols box - clip letters

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at googlemail.com on Sun Oct 11 22:56:35 BST 2009

Just to add to my previous "bug" report, ref should be clipped to have 
only ONE letter preceding the number, otherwise it is dropped for 
highway:symbol boxes. (at least neither displayed in Mapsource nor on my 
Vista HCx). Also letters following numbers have to be kept to one letter 
Good: L999A
Good: L999
Good: 999A
Good: 99

(actually it would be great if there were a possibility to drop "ref=0" 
- never seen it in reality, but often placed in map data for streets 
without reference at all)
Incorrect: EV6 --> should be clipped to E6 (better than not displaying 
it at all I think)
Incorrect: 6EV --> should be clipped to 6E
Incorrect:EV6EV --> should be clipped to E6E

(this ads to the bug that the ref must be put before the name of the 
street, which is really lousy for the address search).

Good Night,
