Video game players with busy real lives want to immerse into gaming environment in their spare time.
They want to experience the gaming mechanisms, plots, or sense of accomplishment, but do not

sense of direction can also better enjoy games with help from a navigation system. And while video

game and difficult to extract geolocation data to outside the game, causing enhancements to the map to
be severely limited.
