Not sure if this belongs here, but in some travels last week in northern Namibia, I noticed that B15 signage ends at B10 in the north. The stretch from B10 north to the Angolan border is signed as B11. The German-language Wikipedia (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stra%C3%9Fensystem_in_Namibia) shows correct maps, but the listed endpoints are incorrect.
Thanks. Fixed routes should appear in the browser tomorrow. You might need to tweak your .list file to match accurate waypoint names.

Edit: I gather Zimbabwe has R (regional) and P (primary) roads as the official numbers since circa 2010, but continues to sign the 1975 A roads, if at all? Given your Namibian travels continue on from Zimbabwe, you've obviously got recent on-the-ground knowledge.

I did not see a single sign with A roads on it. Even the very old concrete distance signs have R or P routes shown on them. The little new, reflective signage that I saw showed R & P roads as well.

Thanks, will change.
