The mobile wayfinding navigation system effectively provides information through interface visual design to help users complete the wayfinding process. However, only few research studies are related to the innovative visual design to inform the progress information on the mobile app. The purpose of this study is to investigate the factors of different progress information designs and gender on user's time perception, usability, and emotional aspects in a mobile wayfinding navigation interface. The authors also attempted to design an innovative visual progress information that can intuitively inform users the c urrent progress, while improving their user experience in the wayfinding process. This study conducted a two-factor experimental design to evaluate the effects of four different progress information ( i.e., text, progress-bar, text with progress-bar, and text with progress-bar and voice prompt) and gender (i.e., male and female) during a 30-second wayfinding duration. The results can be a good reference for future interface information design of mobile wayfinding applications.
