When designing navigation and other location-sensitive aids for older people, there are many important issues that need to be considered and questions that need to be answered. It is important that these are clearly identified as otherwise there is a risk that they will be glossed over. This paper maps out a design space for such aids, identifying and discussing several of the key issues for design for older people. Finally it examines challenges related to investigating navigation with older people.
