[mkgmap-dev] Slash character in name

From Colin Smale colin.smale at xs4all.nl on Tue Dec 22 15:07:20 GMT 2015

I have noticed that the slash, plus all following text, is mostly
suppressed on my Nuvi 2795. The official Garmin maps manage to use a
slash between multiple refs and destinations - maybe they are escaping
it in some way? Looking at the same file with BaseCamp shows that the
full text is present in the map file, so the problem is (at least
partially) with the device and how it handles the strings. 

In the past I remember it working on my old 255W, although the spoken
instructions stopped at the slash, so "A1/M2 Destination" would be read
out as "A1" only.

I've tried to customize my map to replace semicolon with slash, but the slash does not appear. Is the slash an allowed character in a name or destination? I'm using the Latin1 character set.
