Mobile navigation service is an important and popular location-based services, which help to recommend routes for mobile users to their destinations. Modern mobile navigation service provides various navigation strategies and considers many complex situations, which make validation and verification of mobile navigation service becomes very difficult. In this paper, we present an approach to prioritize test cases for regression testing of mobile navigation Service. The approach is based on the assumption that there may be a failure if the user's actual route deviates from the navigation recommended route. In this paper, we analyze the mass mobile navigation logs, compare the recommended routes with the user travel routes, identify the deviation of the intersection point, and then priority regression test data by deviation. To evaluate our approach, we conduct a case study on a popular navigation software. By compare proposed prioritizing test approach with random test approach, the approach helps to improve test efficiency.
