Hello Cormac,

I recommend starting by checking out the Labels Sample of the Maps documentation. While it’s not the exact format as Google Maps, you are able to create labels for areas on your map. It will automatically label the streets (you can set it to your area by changing the Default Location’s Latitude and Longitude values on the LightshipMap GameObject in the Inspector). You could reference this sample implementation for custom label placement.
