While OsmAnd might show the turn lanes on time, it does announce the
distance to the split as the distance to the exit-node. It does not
inform you about the need to be in the right lane based on a (long)
solid line of several hundred meters
As Paul Johnson wrote, the change:lanes tag is useful in such cases,
but OsmAnd does not know about it.
