The fast transfer rates via UMTS and their corresponding high-tech devices provide the opportunity to develop easily accessible Location Based Services. Mobile phones with high-resolution cameras, MP3-players and Java applications are part of our everyday life. Many drivers rely on car navigation systems that provide route information, and pedestrians also often need help in unfamiliar environments. The utilisation of multimedia presentation forms while guiding a pedestrian to a desired destination could support the wayfinding process and facilitate ongoing tasks.
In this paper general considerations about multimedia presentation forms in pedestrian navigation are discussed, their applicability on modern devices is investigated and restrictions regarding their mutual use are defined.
