    Personal navigation is one of the new emerging areas of ubiquitous computing. There already exist new personal navigation devices and services on the market and their number is expected to rise. Some of the services and devices have their own user groups and their usage is now well established. Among the new products and services there are traditional and presumed ways of use, but users also invent whole new ways to use the product to better satisfy their needs. This paper presents the results of the studies on new usage cultures of personal navigation solutions and a common classification of the products and services for personal navigation from the user's point of view.
