What Navigation Challenges Need To Be Addresses Now Or In The Near Future?

As post in the subject line, I have been thinking about navigation challenges and the two that come immediately to my mind are:

-Indoor Navigation

-Keeping Data Current

For example, last week I was in a very large multiple story building and I was thinking that the navigation function on my Android phone might be helpful for getting around inside.

Red Light Cameras

In this mornings Saint Petersburg Times headline reads City moves ahead with camera plan.It is full speed ahead to install cameras at 20 crash prone intersections.May take up to 6 months to get the cameras working could be 30 to 60 days if they piggy back the cameras.$8,000,000 could raised they say only 1 councilman out of 9 disagreed with going ahead with the cameras.


Noticed some of the POI pages have icons and sound downloads. How are these associated with the locations in the GPS? meaning if I download the sounds and icons for walmarts, how will my gps know to use those for walmarts only?

I am not sure how long that took him but it sure saved me a lot of time and work.

MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI

Do I need to download icons and sounds with POI packages?

OK, so I'm new to the POI thing. Found a number of packages for which I am very grateful (such as Rest Areas, which would have been great to have driving from Virginia to Connecticut before New Year's).


Every time I watch this, it makes me laugh. laugh out loud

It reminds me of stories posted here about owner's "adventures" with their GPS when they follow it's directions too literally.
