Preferably, a preset number of highway navigation information corresponding to the category can be displayed. If the preset number is 3 and the highway navigation information displayed in the display frame is service area information, the corresponding category is service area. Then the prompt in the pop-up box is also the service area information. If the highway navigation information in the display box is toll station information, the corresponding category is toll station, and the toll station information is also prompted in the pop-up box. The three highway navigation information is displayed in the form of text. The displayed three highway navigation information may include the highway navigation information that has been displayed on the display frame, or may not include the highway navigation information that has been displayed on the display frame. Highway navigation information. figure 2 Show the preset prompt number of 3 prompts, click the display box that displays the service area information, and display the 3 service area information in text form in the form of a pop-up box.
[0025] In this embodiment, when the user is on the expressway, by prompting the information of at least one service area on the preceding navigation path, the user is provided with more effective navigation information, which is convenient for the user to better arrange the itinerary.
[0026] Refer to image 3 This is a schematic diagram of a navigation information prompt of the present invention.
[0027] Step 21: Navigate according to the navigation path. Specifically, at least one navigation route is acquired according to the departure place, destination, and route planning principles. The route planning principles include system recommendation, high-speed priority, and least charge.
[0028] Step 22: Determine whether the road at the current location is an expressway, if yes, go to step 23.
[0029] Step 23: Obtain highway navigation information on the navigation path ahead of the current position. Specifically, the highway navigation information includes the name of the highway information and/or the distance between the current location and the highway information.
[0030] Step 24: Determine whether the distance between the current location and the nearest service area in front is less than the preset value, if yes, go to Step 25.
[0031] Step 25: Determine whether there are multiple service area information on the navigation path ahead of the current position, if yes, proceed to step 26. The multiple service area information includes two or more service area information. The service area information includes the name of the service area and/or the distance between the current location and the service area.
[0032] Step 26: Prompt at least two service area information.
