    Abstract
    An approach for presenting a comparison of progress information associated with transport modes, routes, or a combination thereof is described. A transport comparison platform determines progress information for at least one device associated with at least one mode of transport, at least one route, or a combination thereof. The transport comparison platform determines other progress information associated with at least another mode of transport, at least another route, or a combination thereof. The transport comparison platform causes, at least in part, a presentation of a comparison of the progress information against the other progress information.

    A navigation unit and system for land navigation particularly useful for vehicle travel. The navigation unit includes a routing program and programs to be used in conjunction with the routing programs. The programs used in conjunction with the routing program process current traffic information for segments of mapping information. The programs provide for a dynamic road speed sensitivity computation which allows the display of current speeds for various segments of mapping information which can ...

    Disclosed herein is a design structure for route planning for global positioning system (GPS) based navigation systems. The method identifies route segments used in a GPS based navigation system and records an actual historical time of travel for at least one route segment traveled by users of the GPS based navigation system travel. The actual historical time of travel comprises the amount of time taken by a user of the GPS based navigation system to go from a beginning of the route segment to a...

    A first mobile device can transmit data related to a route. A second mobile device can receive the route data from the first mobile device. The route data can be a route map displayed on a multi-touch-sensitive display of the second mobile device. A route engine can determine whether the second mobile device is at a location defined by a route locus based on the route data and location data of the second mobile device. The route engine can provide an indication at the first mobile device for a r...
