Car Navigation Data Central Management System ( for TAXI )

   1. Describe your invention, stating the problem solved (if appropriate), and indicating the advantages of using the invention.:

         The car navigation apparatus with data extraction function and remote data transmitting function, and data storage server system.

         The point where the passenger got in, the destination, and the course to its destination are extracted from car navigation apparatus as Customer's Route Data.

That data is transmitted and saved at the center system of a taxi company. The paper in which the "route ID" was written in is published at the time of data preservation. The passenger is handed it at the time of alighting.

         When a passenger gets in the taxi of the company at the next, he should just show the "route ID" paper to go to the destination by the same route as last time.

A driver can take out route information from a center system by the "route ID". A passenger does not need to explain the route to the destination to a driver.

2. How does the invention solve the problem.: By this invention, a passenger becomes unnecessary to give the same explanation whenever he takes a taxi. He can rest calmly until the taxi arrives at the destination.

   3. If the same advantage or problem has been identified by others, how have those others solved it and does your solution differ and why is it better?:

This becomes possible only when a driver was same person at last time and he remembered the last route...
