Garmin supports 6 graphical highway symbols. 3 of them are customised for US expressways and highways. Another 3 are for generic use.

  • Highway symbol codes are only effective when entered at the beginning of the road label.
    • ~[0x04]N.S.E - Effective
    • N.S.E~[0x04] - Not Effective
  • Naming roads with both road number and road name
    • Certain roads in Malaysia are part of the federal or state road system yet have a local name. For example, FT15 is Jalan Lapangan Terbang Subang.
    • Because the requirement for the symbol codes to be at the front of the label, address search for the road name is not possible using the default label.
    • To enable address search, another parameter, Label2=, needs to be entered manually under the Extra tab.
