Can the POI name be modified and changed by eliminating the following in the title: USA, Canada and other unnecessary items not required.
Example when the voice discription for Murphy_USA the disription becomes one messed up word.
This happens to most descriptions and they become jumbled and very confusing.
Need to make changes.
