Abstract

A computer hardware and software system and method for displaying a map of streets corresponding to an area over which a vehicle may move to assist a driver to navigate, the system displaying the map on a display based on a scale-dependent street prioritization scheme, providing on the display a vehicle position symbol indicating the current position and heading of the vehicle and a moving map which moves in translation and rotation as the vehicle moves, selectively and dynamically labelling streets on the display as the vehicle moves, and providing a destination symbol on the display indicating a desired destination or the direction to a desired destination.
