    While mobile applications typically offer access to standardized 'basic´ geo-content, there is evidence in the human sciences that people ac-tually prefer subjective information sources for decision making, e.g. per-sonal stories about experiences by family and friends. The success story of content communities in web applications confirms the wide acceptance of innovative information systems that offer the potential to consume, to pro-duce and to rate personalized data. Therefore in this paper an approach for a mobile, interactive and integrated system is presented that do not only deliver basic geo-referenced information, but also allow the users to create location aware information for themselves and other users: information like hints and personal experience will be geo-referenced, time stamped and annotated with text and keyword information. It is stored and exchanged between community members. This individual information creates infor-mation content which is continuously growing and updated. Image based and text based information retrieval in combination with location informa-tion are used to provide easy access to relevant information. In this paper we outline the system architecture and components that enable these new approaches also providing augmented reality navigation. The approach was tested in a field test study and results and open issues are given. The system worked well and could be applied to future experiments in order to gain more insight in the mobile users´ behavior in real contexts.
