The RAM 27 can be used as the memory 18.

  Next, acquisition of map data and display thereof will be described with reference to FIGS.

  When the user operates the key input unit 17 to give an instruction to start navigation, the mobile phone 1 first receives radio signals from three or more GPS satellites 2 and performs positioning of the current position based on these signals. Since the calculation for this positioning is heavy and a measurement error occurs, information for positioning obtained from the GPS satellite 2 is sent to the D-GPS server 6 for the first positioning, and this D-GPS server 6, the correction is performed, and the corrected position information is acquired from the D-GPS server 6. Of course, if the processing capability of the CPU is high, the positioning calculation may be performed by the mobile phone 1 alone.

  When the mobile phone 1 receives the position information calculated by the D-GPS server 6, the mobile phone 1 notifies the map server 5 of the position information and requests map data of an area (for example, 1Km × 1Km) related to the position information. The map server 5 searches for a map of the area including the position information received. The mobile phone 1 downloads this map data and stores it in the memory 18. The current position is marked on the map based on the acquired map data and displayed on the display unit 16. In particular, this display does not display the entire map of the obtained map data, but displays only a small area centered on the own device.

  Thereafter, when the mobile phone 1 moves, the mobile phone 1 is moved by the radio wave intensity transition of signals from three or more GPS satellites 2 or signals from three or more base stations 3 and the direction detected by the electronic compass 19. The CPU 11 calculates the movement direction and the movement amount. Along with this movement, a map in a range narrower than the predetermined range is created sequentially from the map data acquired above, centering on the position of the own device, and updated and displayed on the display unit 16. In other words, it is not necessary to display the map of the obtained area all at once and move the marking of the own position in it, but extract a slightly smaller area centered on the own position from the obtained area The area to be displayed is moved as the own apparatus moves. If it is determined that such movement has continued and has come to the end of the area, the map server 5 is requested for map data of the adjacent area, the map data is downloaded, and thereafter the same operation is performed. Done.

  In the present embodiment, the encoded position information is read by the camera 20 of the mobile phone 1 functioning as a two-dimensional code reading device and is input as destination information. Based on this destination information, the map server 5 Get map data for guidance of the destination area. In this case, when a plurality of pieces of position information are input as the destination information, the map data of the area related to each position information is reduced so that it can be displayed on one screen as a single map. In other words, if not all destinations can be marked in one area in normal scale map data, the area treated as one map data is enlarged by changing the scale, and all destinations are in one area. Enable marking. As the encoded position information, for example, a barcode on a printed map or the like is used, and is input by reading the barcode with the camera 20.

  Next, the navigation operation in the mobile phone 1 of the present invention will be described with an actual usage example.

  When activation of application software for performing navigation is instructed by the key input unit 17, an operation for specifying the current position of the mobile phone 1 is started. As described above, the position information is calculated from the signals from the three GPS satellites 2 and the calculation result of the D-GPS server 6, and the current position of the mobile phone 1 is recognized as the start point by the CPU 11. The destination registration operation can be accepted after the specific operation as the start point of the current position is completed. The acceptability state may be notified to the user by displaying “Please set destination” on the display unit 16. By the way, while using the navigation, the CPU 11 moves from the start point based on the direction information of the electronic compass 19 and the signal strength transitions from the three base stations 3 held by the wireless communication processing unit 13. Always keep updating.

  Next, destination setting will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG. 3 and the map display example of FIG.

  First, the CPU 11 of the mobile phone 1 determines whether or not a code reading operation has been performed as destination registration when the user starts navigation in the mobile phone 1 starting from the vicinity of the station shown in FIG. Is determined (step S1). If the camera 20 is activated by the key input unit 17 to take a picture, and if the photographed image includes a code specifying the position information, it is determined that the code as the destination has been read (YES in step S1). Judgment). For example, when a two-dimensional bar code printed on a tourist information pamphlet with an introduction of a shrine shown in the center of FIG. 4B is photographed by the camera 20 and the longitude and longitude of the shrine are written here, etc. is there.

  Then, the position information based on the read code is set as the destination by the destination setting unit 21 and recorded in the memory 18 (step S2). On the other hand, if the code is not read by the camera 20, a method other than code acquisition by the camera 20, for example, the location information of the tourist spot found when browsing the tourist information homepage on the Internet is stored in advance. If the data is recorded in 18, the position information read in advance is called by the designation by the key input unit 17 (step S3), and this is set as the destination (step S2). In this way, it is assumed that the shrine shown in the center of FIG. 4B is set as the destination.

Then, it is determined whether or not the destination setting is completed (step S4). Here, for example, within a certain period of time, a code extraction by photographing with the camera 20 or an operation for inputting position information by another method is performed. If the instructed operation is performed (NO in step S4), the destination setting operation from step S1 is performed again, and the point shown in (d) is added as the destination in the example of FIG. .
On the other hand, if there is no code input in step S4 and a predetermined time has elapsed, or the completion of destination setting is instructed by the key input unit 17 (YES in step S4), route guidance to the set destination ( (Navigation) operation is started (step S5).

  First, the CPU 11 determines whether a plurality of destinations are set in the memory 18 (step S6). In the case of FIG. 4, since a plurality of destinations are set (YES in step S6), a plurality of maps (b), (c) and (d) relating to each destination including the current position of the mobile phone 1 are all present. The map server 5 requests the map data (a) of one map of the smallest scale that can be displayed and acquires it. And the map is displayed on the display part 16 based on the acquired map data (a) (step S8). When displaying the entire destination, the entire image is displayed at once for the acquired map data.

  Next, when an instruction to start guidance is received from the key input unit 17, the destination number n is set to 1 (step S9), and a normal size map (for route guidance) up to the nth destination is requested. The map data is acquired, and a map based on the map data is displayed on the display unit 16 (step S11). At this time, in the example of FIG. 4, the cellular phone 1 uses the map data request for route guidance as the shrine indicated by the start point in the vicinity of the station shown in (c) and the destination in the center (b). Is sent to the map server 5 as the first destination, and the map server 5 is requested to make a map that is easy to visually recognize in red or the like on the road that is the shortest traffic route from the start point to the destination. . That is, when the route guidance is started, first, map data indicating the road to be used around the start point as shown in FIG. 4C is sent to the mobile phone 1.

  As already described, the route guidance map at the time of navigation is not displayed on the actual display unit 16 at a time, but only a part of the map data is displayed on the occasion of the change of the current location accompanying movement. The display range moves within the acquired map area while updating the center point. Thereafter, when the display range reaches the end of the acquired map data, the wireless communication processing unit 13 is activated and the map server 5 is requested again for the map data of the adjacent area indicating the shortest traffic route. To do. This is repeated until the destination is reached. Further, as the order n for performing route guidance, it is preferable to refer to the order in which the destinations are registered in the memory 18 in step S2, but this is not restrictive.

Then, it is determined whether or not this destination is the final destination (step S12).
If it is determined in step S12 that it is not the current final destination, n = n + 1 is set (step S10). Again in step S11, a normal size map for the next destination map 4 (b) is similarly requested and displayed, and this is repeated until it is determined as the final destination in step S12.

  If it is determined in step S6 that the number of set destinations is one (determined as NO), the map server 5 is requested to acquire map data of the normal size from the current position up to the one destination. Then, a map based on the map data is displayed on the display unit 16 (step S7), and the process proceeds to step S12.

FIG. 4 shows a display example of the map obtained in this way. FIG. 4A shows one map that can display a map around the current location (departure point) and two destinations on the display screen. Shows a scaled map. In FIG. 4A, (1) indicates the current location area, and (2) and (3) indicate the other two destination areas. (C) is an enlarged view of the normal size of the current area (1), and (b) and (d) are enlarged views of the normal size of the destination areas (2) and (3).
Note that when displaying a map on the display unit 16, heading-up display or north-up display can be performed based on the moving direction calculated by the electronic compass 19.
Further, voice navigation may be performed along with the guidance map display.

  In addition, although the map which can display all the destinations at once is demonstrated in FIG. 3 so that it may acquire after the setting of all the destinations is completed, whenever a destination is added or deleted in step S2, it is a map. The map request procedure may be changed to access the server 5 and request and display a map that can display all destinations at once. This allows the user to know which range will move each time a destination is added or deleted, for example, requesting a map that goes around a destination that is too far away at once, It is possible to prevent the travel route from becoming unclear because the display range of is too wide.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the camera 20 mounted on the mobile phone 1 is used as an optical reading device for acquiring position information. However, an external device such as another infrared bar code reading device is used. A device that can input the read position information to the mobile phone 1 wirelessly or by wire may be used. By using such an optical reading device, it is possible to read various position information from a barcode or the like on a printed matter and input it to the mobile phone 1. Furthermore, since recent image processing applications have a text extraction function called OCR, text is extracted from the photographed image of the camera 20 by this OCR processing, and whether or not position information is included in this is extracted. May be.

  The position information may be an address. If the input location information includes an address, the address is set as the destination. Text information of an address obtained from a desired server on the Internet in advance may be stored in the memory 18 and referred to when setting the destination. Furthermore, by making the location information an address such as “Tsuzuki Ward, Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture”, it is easy to understand when inputting, and it is also easy to find the destination on the displayed map.

In the present embodiment, when a destination is further input after the destination is input until the map is acquired, it is recognized as the next destination. Can be set.
In addition, every time a destination is added or deleted, navigation according to the change of the destination can be performed by displaying a map scaled so that all destinations at that stage can be displayed on one screen. it can.

Further, since the map scaled so that it can be displayed on one screen is displayed at least once as shown in step S8 of FIG. 3, the user can display one or more destinations set up to that point on one screen. Can see.
Furthermore, by setting the position information measured by the GPS function of the mobile phone 1 as the departure point, if the signal from the GPS satellite 2 can be captured, it can be input as the departure point anywhere. it can.

  According to the mobile phone 1 of the present embodiment, for example, when traveling around a plurality of tourist spots at a destination of sightseeing or school excursion, a map having each tourist spot as a destination is acquired in advance on the mobile phone 1. Thus, it is not necessary to take a map, and a guidance map can be displayed for each destination. Furthermore, since it is easy to grasp the travel range, it can be used as a reference for the user's own time allocation for the entire movement or sightseeing.

Further, it is not necessary to set the next destination every time navigation to each destination is completed as in the prior art, and a guidance map can be displayed with a simple operation. Furthermore, since a single map showing all the destinations can be displayed, it is possible to see at a glance which route to reach the remaining destination with respect to the current position.
The mobile communication terminal according to the present invention includes a mobile communication terminal such as a PDA having a communication function in addition to the mobile phone.
Further, as an example of a destination input means, a barcode is shown as an example of optical reading, but the present invention is not limited to this, and a two-dimensional code is also included in this.

  The destination input means is not limited to an optical means, and an RFID chip (non-contact IC) and a reader (non-contact IC reader) may be used. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is equipped with wireless means with small output for both the reader and the chip. In particular, it receives a radio signal sent from the reader and generates an induced electromotive force by a coil inside the chip to operate on the wireless means of the chip. The devices communicate with each other with power applied, and send information held by the chip to the reader. Communication can be performed without a power source on the chip side. For example, an RFID chip in which location information such as an address is registered in a tourist brochure, an RFID reader is mounted on a mobile phone, and instead of reading a barcode with a camera, the location information is read into the mobile phone by non-contact communication. By configuring this as a destination, the same object as the present invention can be achieved.
