Natural guidance...?

Postby fvwazing » Wed Sep 08, 2010 8:40 pm

Great to see other navs going in the wrong direction with their development - maybe they will adapt geotweeting next? ;^)

Serious - I can see lots of bears on the road when adopting this. How does it manage complicated crossings? How do you navigate in large areas without that much variation in buildings - like suburbs? How do you keep up to date when a pub going out of business messes up your routing? Agree that it can be done in 10 showcase cities, but it will take quite a team at Navteq to keep just Manhattan up to date. Agree, too, that the WAF (women's acceptance factor) is high.

I am very sceptical about this... First of all, it might be a while until enough information is gathered to make it really useful. Only 10 cities digitized so far and as soon as they start with number 11, city 1 is already outdated. I like the idea though. Than again...Waze already does this in a way, as long as people enter these landmarks.
