To enter a city or town using the city/state format:
1. Select Postal Code in the stop type drop-down.
2. Type the city name and two-letter state/province/country abbreviation or fully spelled out state name in the City field, then click Add Stop or press the Enter key on your keyboard. The city and state/country do not need to be capitalized, but do need to be separated by either a comma or a space. The city name can be any length. If the city name contains two or three words, each portion of the city name must be separated by spaces.
