Map usage on handheld devices suffers from limited screen size and the minimal attention that users can dedicate to them in mobile situations. This work examines effects of automating navigation features like zooming and panning as well as other features such as rotation, path finding and artifact representation on the mobile navigation experience. Described are five claims and early support for these features in the police work domain. © 2008 ACM.
