Didn't see this question posted before....

How does the nav system determine what highway/road labels to display?

I've noticed that I will get labels for streets that are not directly accessible from the road I am traveling, but don't seem to get labels for roads that intersect the road I am on.

In general, it tries to label roads that it is able to fit a label on. We have been working to improve the labeling over what you are seeing currently and it has gotten better. So, more to come!

Thanks, codeman. That tracks with what I am seeing.

I was wondering too since my $100 Garmin shows all intersecting roads provided I am on the right scale. I understand why it doesn't when the scale is too large but when it is on just a couple of roads ahead then it should label all of them. Keep at it Codeman.
