This is for Windows phone
Based on Route service, i have a list of itineraries and each time GPS detect a change, it raises an event and i get the coordinate.
I have so far tried to go with this approach but got lost
1) At start maintain current and next itinerary
2) Based on position relative to two itinerary,
a) if distance from current is inreasing and next is decreasing, we are moving towards next itinerary
b) if distance from current to both current and next is increasing, we have gone beyond next so we need to make next itinerary current and slide it forward.
c) if point is outside the polygon of current and next itinerary, recalculate.
I can use points and linq and query nearest point each time and determine current itinerary and possibly next itenerary.
Any help will be appreciated.

Present or alert an end user to individual maneuvers of a route in any way that is synchronized with the end-user’s sensor-based position along the route (e.g. turn by turn navigation that tracks end-user’s position using GPS and communicates a maneuver as the end-user approaches the location for such maneuver).

Thank you for taking time to answer my query Richard. Most appreciated
Alert can be interpreted in many ways. Would showin
1) Turn icon or showing distance before turn ?
2) A more eye catching visual sign
3) Audio alert ?
I have seen apps on Marketplace that do all that and they use Bing Maps. I myself purchased on a while back call Navigation by GPS Tuner that does just that (and i know that they use default control). Or does that only apply to the fact that i haven't made any effect to contact the Bing Maps team ? I am sure that most navigation maps except for
* Garmin * Nokia * Navigon use WP7 Silverlight Control formerly known as Bing Maps control.
Thank you once again. I appreciate that you cannot give legal advice (I myself say that on #windowsphone forums). Personal opinion is more than sufficient.
