Country specific guidelines
Belgium and Luxemburg
Entrances and Exits are named in the official language of the region they are located in. In Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, French is used.
Only when road signs differ from the official name, use > and add the prime destination(s) as indicated on the signs. Avoid more than one destination when possible.
When Freeways have a European road number, the E-number is used and the national road number (A-number) is omitted. In all other cases, the national road number is used.
More about abbreviations as a prefix for destinations
In Belgium and Luxemburg the destination abbreviation ">" is used, in The Netherlands "ri". These abbreviations:
- are used to fit more of the name on the screen
- are pronounced fully by TTS (Text To Speech), in the navigation instructions with use of street names
