Going My Way

When friends give directions, they often don't describe the whole route, but instead provide landmarks along the way that they think will be familiar. Friends can assume we have certain knowledge because they know our likes and dislikes. Going My Way attempts to mimic a friend by learning about where you travel, identifying the areas that are close to the desired destination from your frequent path, and picking a set of landmarks to allow you to choose a familiar one. When you select one of the provided landmarks, Going My Way will provide directions from it to the destination.
