Hm... City-Navigator seemed to be kind of weird. For example, B58 is  
only referred to as B58, even when I put the cursor over it. On the  
other hand, the cursor displayed either "B57" or "<housenumber>  
Xantener Strasse". So it looks like in this region Garmin labelled the  
major roads with just the references (B58, B57), but then in some  
cases added address information with the street name.

The routing display seems to prefer the Street names though ("Right on  
Weseler Strasse"). (I tested this on a Nüvi, as I don't have Garmin's  
City Navigator on my eTrex.)
