Keywords: Car Navigation System, UX design, Questionnaire, Survey, Built-in car GPS
Abstract. The need for car-related navigation and the appearance of the vehicles themselves are much the same age – of course. In the early days, paper maps and personal questioning were solved this problem. Nearly 100 years ago, the first built-in car GPS was released – and this is an innovation that is still an important part of car design. Planning the user interface is a very exciting issue, because only in a few seconds the display needs to provide the user with the right amount of information. In this research our goal was to assess Hungarians driving and built-in GPS using habits and based on this try to suggest the “perfect” interface. A questionnaire was made with 19 or 46 questions and more than 1000 respondents completed it. Because of the high number of questions only selected diagrams are represented. Some answers have also been subjected to different statistical tests.
