[mkgmap-dev] Highway name or ref

From maning sambale emmanuel.sambale at gmail.com on Wed Apr 7 03:37:31 BST 2010

Just to confirm, route instructions are using ref - name.  Tested on
mac roadtrip and mapsource.  Will try with GPS later.

highway=motorway {name '${ref|highway-symbol:hbox} ${name}' |
'${ref|highway-symbol:hbox}' | '${name}' ; add display_name = '${ref}
- ${name}' }
highway=trunk {name '${ref|highway-symbol:hbox} ${name}' |
'${ref|highway-symbol:hbox}' | '${name}'; add display_name = '${ref} -
${name}' }
highway=primary {name '${ref|highway-symbol:box} ${name}' |
'${ref|highway-symbol:box}' | '${name}'; add display_name = '${ref} -
${name}' }
highway=secondary {name '${ref|highway-symbol:oval} ${name}' |
'${ref|highway-symbol:oval}' | '${name}' ; add display_name = '${ref}
- ${name}' }
