Abstract

Navitime is an increasingly popular mobile phone-based navigation service that primarily targets urban pedestrians. Recent advances in mobile phone technology critically improved Navitime's usability and usefulness, while 3G network technologies reduce the latency in interactive server-based applications. Navitime guides users to their destinations via several types of transportation and computes the best itineraries. It can address certain information needs that arise in everyday navigation tasks. The company is extending Navitime to operate in multiple countries, implementing a system that works in different cultures with different regulations.
