Just looking at your sample there, Paul, & it's a good chance to ask a
question that I've often wondered about.

I use OSMand+ to nav when required, & it will tell me to drive along SR3
then turn onto SR80 & proceed. I don't! - I drive along Bermuda St (which
is officially Southport - Burleigh Rd!), then turn onto Reedy Creek Rd.


In your sample, would someone driving from Aberystwyth Uni, go along the
A487, then the A44 & the A4120 to get to Blandolau Rec Grounds, or would
they use Penglais Rd, Quebec Rd, Ffordd Sulien then Heol-y-Bont?

In other words, do you navigate & drive by numbers or names?
