You are right. On my Etrex Legend HCx it shows (B58 Weseler Strasse) when
cursoring over the street. In Mapsource 6.15.6 it shows only (B 58).

But I tested again the routing instructions on my etrex. Turning in any
street with a highway-symbol assigned tells me only to turn right or left to
the ref (no street name).
Is it in the Garmin City-Navigator the same?
