Turn Instruction Overrides (Turn Guidance)

Turn Instruction Overrides (TIO) is a feature in the WME which allows editors to control the visible instruction and the verbal instruction given to the driver making that turn through a junction.

This allows controlling, for each turn:

- the text of the audible guidance (or disabling audible guidance)

- the display of the visual guidance, including the presence of road shields and exit signs (or disabling visible guidance)

This capability allows generating precise instructions, better aligned with the local signalisation.

It allows as well simplifying some segment names. Previously, some segments where artificially named in order to generate adequate instructions.

Please avoid using micro-dogleg (mDL), a technique previously used for altering the angle Waze sees at a junction, which affects turn instructions. The mDL technique can cause an incorrect positioning of the user on the map.
