Keywords: navigation; complex navigation; pedestrian navigation; public transportation; mobile device; GPS device

Navigation is a kind of application widespread especially in mobile devices. We can find complex navigation systems that combine two or more types of navigation. This can lead to a complex service which can increase the efficiency and comfort of user’s movement. The user and even the path can be characterized by a large number of variables. This fact opens a problem of finding a path that will satisfy chosen variables. We tried to point out interesting issues concerning combined navigation. For some of the issues, we propose possible solutions. The solutions are based either on solutions from existing products or on our own experience from the JRGPS project supporting combination of public transport and walk. The path reliability is one of the important factors for connection planning. We propose several different points of view at path reliability under the condition of public transport network. Using detailed data from the connection provider, we can see how the characteristic features of public transport networks involve this path parameter.
