We present a system for the real-time gen- eration of car navigation instructions with landmarks. Our system relies exclusively on freely available map data from Open- StreetMap, organizes its output to fit into the available time until the next driving ma- neuver, and reacts in real time to driving er- rors. We show that female users spend sig- nificantly less time looking away from the road when using our system compared to a baseline system.
