Modern cities face a continuous growth of car population, at that, the number of drivers also grows and most of them use various navigation systems while choosing the best route as well as at the traffic situations’ assessment. .In this regard it is important to have a navigator that secures a quick and easy access to the required information and proposes alternative routes. Usability of the navigator depends on the simplicity of the graphic user interfaces and also on the available collection of maps. Usefulness of the information received by the users on their requests depends on how well the context of the request, like driver type, driver experience, used vehicle, weather conditions, road surface, is taken into account. When creating a new route it is necessary to consider the current situation on the road using operative data, the driver’s preferences and also to forecast the traffic density of the roads that are in the route. To solve the above listed it will be necessary to use in the navigator certain artificial intelligent tools as expert system and inference machine. The paper presents the smart navigator for modern cities developed based on intelligent geoinformation systems. Similar smart navigators have been already developed for solving problems of small navigation. It is suggested to create smart car navigators for modern cities using key solutions developed for small navigation.
