At the same time, the distance of the traffic jam section, the transit time, and the detour route can be displayed, and the route of the detour route can be scrolled according to the selection, so that the traffic jam zone in the guidance route can be easily confirmed. Further, by selecting a detour route displayed in the traffic jam section, the detour route in the traffic jam section can be confirmed by scrolling the route.

  Further, when the detour route is not selected in S51 (S51, NO), it is determined whether or not the congestion section has been passed (S52), and if the control unit 2 determines that the congestion section has been passed (S52, YES). The speed of the route scroll is returned to the original speed (S53), and the speed of the route scroll is decreased for each traffic jam section on the guidance route until the route scroll to the set destination is completed (S54, YES). The distance, transit time, and detour route of the traffic jam section are displayed, and when the detour route is selected, the detour route of the selected traffic jam section can be scrolled. In addition, it is comprised so that it may return to S44 from S54 and process according to a flow until the route scroll to a destination is complete | finished (S54, YES).

  When the navigation device A1 in the third embodiment configured as described above inputs a destination, the navigation device A1 searches for a guidance route from the current position to the destination, and scrolls the route to confirm the guidance route. When approaching a traffic jam section on the route, the route scrolling speed is reduced and a sound or voice is notified that there is a traffic jam section, and the distance, transit time and detour route of the traffic jam section on the guidance route are displayed, and the detour route is displayed. When selected, the route can be scrolled using the detour route of the selected traffic jam section, so when checking the guide route, the traffic jam section on the guide route can be easily confirmed. You can also select a route to bypass the traffic jam section. In particular, it searches for the detour route of the traffic jam section that occurs on the guidance route based on the travel history and the traffic history stored in the data storage unit 1b and the traffic history data storage unit 1b. It is possible to search and display a bypass route.

  Specifically, as shown in FIG. 8, when the vehicle mark V moves on the road R on the guide route and approaches the traffic jam section T on the guide route, the scroll speed of the vehicle mark V is reduced, and the traffic jam section Necessary because it can acquire the latest traffic information of T, notify that there is a traffic jam section T on the guidance route using sound and voice, and display the distance, transit time, and detour route of the traffic jam section T By pressing the detour route button B1 in accordance with the route, it is possible to perform route scrolling with a route detouring the traffic jam section T, so it is possible to easily check the information of the traffic jam section on the guide route and the information of the detour route during the route scroll. .

  In addition, when the detour route is displayed and selected, it is configured to be selected by the user. However, the present invention is not limited, and the time until the detour route is selected is set in advance. If not, it may be configured to automatically process so as not to automatically select a bypass route.

  As mentioned above, although the navigation apparatus of the present invention has been described using the first to third embodiments, the present invention is not limited to the same effect even if various modifications are made. Can do. FIG. 9 is a schematic diagram showing setting items in the on-route scroll. FIG. 10 (a) is a flowchart showing a process for automatically determining whether or not to route scroll the detour route, and FIG. 10 (b) automatically determines whether or not to skip a traffic jam section. It is a flowchart which shows the process to be made.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 9, as a search condition for a detour route on the guidance route, a condition may be displayed on the display unit 6 in advance, and the congestion distance and the required time for passing may be set. By configuring in this way, it is possible to set whether or not to display a detour route in a traffic jam section on the guidance route.

  Further, when the detour route is displayed in the second embodiment and the third embodiment, the detour route selection button B1 is used to select the detour route. For example, as shown in FIG. The time until the route selection button B1 is pressed is set to 3 seconds (S60). If the bypass route selection button B1 is not pressed after 3 seconds (S60, YES), the bypass route is automatically set. The route may be scrolled in the original guidance route without selecting (S61). For example, in the second embodiment, it can be provided between S28 and S31 (see FIG. 5), and in the third embodiment, between S50 and S52 (see FIG. 7). It is possible to implement by providing in. Note that the time until the detour route selection button B1 is pressed can be freely set.

  In the first to third embodiments, a skip button for passing a traffic jam section may be provided when the route of the guidance route is being scrolled. Specifically, FIG. 10 (b), it is determined whether or not the skip button has been pressed (S62). If it is determined that the skip button has not been pressed (S62, NO), the state in which the skip button has not been pressed has elapsed for 7 seconds. Is determined (S64). Here, when the skip button is pressed within 7 seconds (S62, YES), the traffic route section where the skip button is pressed is passed (S63), the route scroll of the guide route is performed, and the skip button is 7 seconds. If the button is not pressed after the above (S64, YES), the route may be scrolled without skipping the traffic jam section (S65).

  As described above, the navigation device of the present invention is used to reduce the scrolling speed and use sound and voice when approaching a traffic jam section occurring on the guidance route when performing on-route scrolling. The traffic area, the distance, transit time, and detour route are displayed, and if necessary, the route scroll skip (send) of the traffic jam section, and the detour route that detours the traffic jam section is selected, and the selected detour route It can be applied to a navigation device that can easily and accurately confirm a traffic jam section when a user confirms a guidance route to a destination.
