Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS OF PROVIDING INFORMATION USING A NAVIGATION APPARATUS
Abstract:
A method is disclosed for providing information to guide a user along a determined route to a destination through a navigable network using a navigation apparatus. The method comprises obtaining, using instructive data, a next manoeuvre to be made by the user and a distance to the next manoeuvre from a current position of the navigation apparatus. The method further comprises determining, using informative data, whether there is at least one event within a predetermined distance of the current position of the navigation apparatus. An order in which first and second portions of a graphical user interface (GUI) are arranged relative to each other within a display window is then determined based on a comparison of the distance to the next manoeuvre from the current position of the navigation apparatus and the distance to the event from the current position of the navigation apparatus, wherein the first portion of the GUI comprises an indication of the next manoeuvre, and wherein the second portion of the GUI comprises an indication of the event.
