exit_to was used on the highway=motorway_junction node to detail the destinations where a motorway junction exits to. It has largely been superseded by destination=* and should therefore be considered deprecated.
Note: There is guidance and numerous United States specific examples of use of the exit_to and destination tags at Exit Info.
If signage states a road leads to Springfield on US 30, tag exit_to=US 30;Springfield. If multiple destinations are shown on signage, tag them with semicolons. For example, exit_to=US 30;Springfield;OK 20;Sometown;Anothertown; note that Anothertown doesn't have a ref number.
Coverage in the United States
Adoption of destination=* in the United States since June 2014 has been rapid, and has clearly surpassed the number of exit_to=* keys as of December 2015.
This map shows the geographical distribution of exit_to=* in the United States as of 2014-06-25.
As of 2018, destination=* is now far more common than exit_to=*, with the latter declining in number.
Currently, a transition to destination=* is being discussed again. Please take part in the discussion there or on the discussion page.
Exit_to has been discussed in November 2012. U.S. mappers feel that exit_to should not be deprecated. Non U.S. mappers feel that destination=* and its related keys are more flexible and of greater use in navigation devices.
