In navigation technology, a route represents a distance between the location and the destination. Such a route representation can contain intermediate destinations or location points, so-called waypoints, which must be taken into account. Depending on the route program, the sequence can be determined by the shortest distance between the waypoints, the route that can be covered in the shortest time
or the most scenic route. Routes are determined by the stringing together of waypoints, whereas track points are positional data that are regularly recorded and stored
according to predefined criteria such as a distance covered or a fixed time interval.
points Under these conditions, a route can be determined between the starting point and the destination - Passau and Cologne - with the waypoints Bamberg and Miltenberg. Since our road infrastructure allows different routes even under these conditions, the boundary conditions - such as the shortest travel time or the shortest route, etc. - still have to be taken into account. -In the navigation devices
, theroutes are displayed visually, every change of direction and distance is shown on the display
, but they can also be given in voice output. When a waypoint is reached, the intermediate destination is displayed. When the route is travelled, the navigation devices save the individual route sections in a track log.
