|20120173606||Signature Based Map Caching - Systems, methods, and computing devices for building, operating and using map systems with signature-based map caches are disclosed. Based on the desired map properties included in a formatted map request, a map signature can be generated. The map signature can be used to access a signature based map cache to determine whether a map with identical map properties has been previously generated and stored in cache or otherwise available for retrieval. If the map signature exists in the map cache, the corresponding map can be delivered to a map client. If the map signature does not exist in the map cache, then a map can be generated or rendered based on the map properties in the map request. Once the map is generated, it can be saved to the map cache along with associated map signature for future retrieval.||07-05-2012|
|20100030466||System and Method for Hybrid Off-Board Navigation - A system, method and apparatus for hybrid off-board vehicle navigation are disclosed. In the system, a multi-stop route package is created and sent from a route server to a navigation device. The route package can include a collection of vehicle attributes and corresponding road restrictions for guiding the vehicle towards its destination. The server can optionally push the route package to the vehicle in an email message or other stored communication. When an off-route condition is detected, the navigation device can send a route request to the server that includes the vehicle attributes and the corresponding road restrictions. The server can respond with a partial route correction that is determined based on the vehicle attributes and road restrictions.||02-04-2010|
