Yeah I’ll be here for a while, so next time you’re over we’ll meet for sure.
When I know a street name, I generally add “name=” and fill this is with the Thai name, I also add “name:th” with the same data and “name:en=” with the English equivalent.
I can read Thai to a certain extent, but I also use the following website, which imo is one of the best Thai/English resources on the web. www.thai-language.com
One of these days I’ll take the bike into CM centre and get pics of the street names there.
By the way, I make my own Garmin maps and I have a very crude .NET application and replaces all “name=” with the data contained in “name:en=”
Mapsource makes a complete mess of the Thai language, it tries to convert into English, but fails hopelessly.
This makes it far more readable, I can read Thai but not quickly enough when driving, it’s easier to have it in English on the map.
