Normally, mobile pedestrian navigation systems use visually perceptible landmarks to guide their users through the environment. In this article we introduce concepts for the use of auditory perceptible landmarks in route descriptions. Such auditory perceptible landmarks complement their visual counterparts and also stand to be beneficial for certain groups like the visually impaired and the elderly.
