In-car GPS based satellite navigation systems are now a common part of driving, providing turn-by-turn navigation instructions on smartphones, portable units or in-car dashboard navigation systems. This paper uses interactional analysis of video data from fifteen naturalistically recorded journeys with GPS to understand the navigational practices deployed by drivers and passengers. The paper documents five types of 'trouble' where GPS systems cause issues and confusion for drivers around… 

Figures from this paper

The effects of using mobile phones and navigation systems during driving
TLDR
This thesis focuses on drivers being distracted from mobile phones and navigation systems, and how their driving performance is affected.
Gravity: automatic location tracking system between a car and a pedestrian
TLDR
Through this user-centered design approach, "Gravity - Automatic Location Tracking System between a Car and a Pedestrian" was developed as a prototype and its usability was evaluated, and it received favorable feedback.
FutureNav The Design and Evaluation of a Strategic Navigation Interface for Semi-Autonomous Driving in Urban Environments
TLDR
A working prototype of a navigation interface, FutureNav, is designed and constructed, which provides information and gives drivers high-level control over it, and certain features of this interface, such as the ghost car, map landmarks, and the 3D viewpoint, are identified as potential sources of increased situation awareness.
Smart flashlight: map navigation using a bike-mounted projector
TLDR
This paper demonstrates by proof-of-concept a GPS-based map navigation using a bike-mounted projector and implements a prototype using both a projector and a smartphone mounted on a bike, comparing them for use in a navigation system for nighttime cycling.
Reducing Drivers' Distractions in Phone-Based Navigation Assistants Using Landmarks
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that the use of landmarks helped the drivers occupy their attention in driving rather than on the mobile phone, thus avoiding distractions that could be dangerous while driving.
Co-Navigator: an advanced navigation system for front-seat passengers
TLDR
Results show that the Co-Navigator is a valuable in-car navigation device for the front-seat passenger and an explorative in-situ evaluation.
Landmarks based human-like guidance for driving navigation in an urban environment
TLDR
The basis for a ‘natural navigation’ system which interprets distances as references to landmarks is presented, and landmarks can be located on the navigational map with sufficient accuracy using normal vehicle telemetry and a dashboard camera.
Experience Maps: Experience-Enhanced Routes for Car Navigation
TLDR
This paper proposes a concept that allows for experience-optimized routing to make driving more joyful and pleasurable and presents the results of a web survey with 114 participants that was conducted to explore the users' preferences and opinions regarding taking the experience into account for route guidance.
Driving while navigating: On-road driving performance using GPS or printed instructions

TLDR
Using a driving simulator may be an efficient means of evaluating the strategic level of driving, executive function, and readiness to drive as well as in an interactive driving simulator for improving safety.
The Trouble with Autopilots: Assisted and Autonomous Driving on the Social Road
TLDR
This paper draws upon publicly available videos of autonomous and assisted driving to explore how their drivers and the drivers of other cars interact with, and make sense of, the actions of these cars.

Studying driver attention and behaviour for three configurations of GPS navigation in real traffic driving
TLDR
The authors' results illustrated that visual output not only causes a substantial amount of eye glances, but also led to a decrease in driving performance, which was illustrated in field experiments in real traffic.
Glancing at personal navigation devices can affect driving: experimental results and design implications
TLDR
It is found that drivers using a navigation system with a graphical display indeed spent less time looking at the road compared to those using a Navigation system with spoken directions only, and glancing at the display was correlated with higher variance in driving performance measures.
In-car gps navigation: engagement with and disengagement from the environment
TLDR
It is argued that for a fuller understanding of issues of disengagement and engagement with the environment the authors need to move beyond a focus on the (re)design of GPS devices, and point to future directions of work that embrace a broader perspective.

TLDR
Experimental results show that the AR PND exhibits the least negative impact on driving, compared with the standard map-based PND and an egocentric street view PND, which are popular today.

Interaction weaknesses of personal navigation devices
TLDR
A comparative study with current PNDs from different vendors and market segments is performed and multiple interaction weaknesses that are prevalent throughout all tested device classes are identified.
Bridging the gap between useful and aesthetic maps in car navigation systems
TLDR
An approach is described for the integration of complex maps in car navigation systems without harming its function and the adaptation of a map's function and its design according to the changing situations in the automotive context.
