Dear osm-ph gamin users,

I posted this issue in the mkgmap list (the compiler we use for the
garmin maps).  The best way to solve this is to remove abbreviations
in the map.
Rally also indicated a way to resolve this by creating a custom
textospeech correction to garmin devices with this capability.

May we request users to report such errors?  Just send the bug reports
to me or in the osm-ph garmin trac.  Thanks!

Not exactly an mkgmap issue, but I would like to point this out when
mapping for OSM.  Using nuvi text-to-speech feature, some abbreviated
street names are announced with some kind of default words.

i. e.,
 - "St. Thomas"  which should be "Saint Thomas" was announced as "Street Thomas"
 - "E. Rodriguez" which should be "Eulogio Rodriguez "was announced as
"East Rodriguez"
