I think it is better to use the official name of 7-Eleven. Makes it easier for Tourists visiting our country to search.

ad4rum's suggestion is also excellent as below example:

7-11 Hougang Central
Shopping: Convenience Store
809 Hougang Central #01-172, Singapore 530809
Singapore, Singapore
Tel: +65-6382-2969


... but I would like to add an "@" after it, as in "7 -11 @ Hougang Central" so as not to confuse "7-11" as an address. Tourists may not be aware that we have one address number. Some countries may have two address numbering system (not sure about that ).

Tourists/users may not know when to add an "@" during a POI search.
If the user keyed in "7-11", I think its safe to assume they are searching for 7-eleven and not an address.

You are right Bro. What I meant is that the "@" acts as a "locator" for the place as in "ATM @Shell", "Citibank @Tesco", for example. :)

ohh you mean, instead of:
7-11 Bukit Batok West Avenue 5 (Bukit Gombak MRT Station)

it become:
7-11 Bukit Batok West Avenue 5@Bukit Gombak MRT Station

As long as this "locator" is AFTER the search perimeter and do not require user to key in "@" then its fine,
since in order to search for that POI, just need to key in:
7-11 bukit batok w
and the correct result will be shown.

but if what you mean is "7-11@North Point Shopping Centre"
then if the user key in "7-11 yishun", the 1 at North Point will be missed.

So, as long as the format is:
7-11 followed by its streets name + (building name) (if any)
then all 7-11 branches will be listed according to its streets name.

Thanks for the valuable feedback from bro ad4run & bro sobamy for the 7-11 naming issue.

I think I will finalize the system as it:

"7-11 <street / taman>" + "<location>" (if any)

So It will become:

7-11 Bukit Batok West Avenue 5@Bukit Gombak MRT Station

or

7-11 Medan Putra Menjalara

I will try to do the checking over this weekend. :-$

I suggest MFM should standardize the term for Kubur.
Right now some of term used by MFM Kubur and cemetery.
Most of spelling cemetery also wrong (Muslim Cementry, Muslim Cemetary)

thanks

Main road split 3 ramp.
The unit says same command "keep left" on left and middle ramp. The right ramp correct as it prompt "keep right".
My suggestion, at the middle of road within 50m distance, should prompt "midle'.

example location :
N3 03.849 E101 40.746
N2 58.607 E101 43.933
