People typically follow the same route for often-repeated trips, such as commuting to work. In such cases, the need for navigation guidance arises only if the usually-followed route needs any deviations. This disclosure describes a quiet navigation mode for a digital map/navigation application, implemented with user permission. In the quiet navigation mode, spoken navigation guidance is limited to those steps along the route that correspond to deviations from the user’s routinely traversed route between the given origin and destination. By reducing spoken notifications and alerting the user only when necessary, the quiet navigation mode can improve the user experience of using a digital map/navigation application.
