An apparatus is provided for allowing simple entry and display of location information in a vehicle travel guide system. Spot information corresponding to contents carried on an atlas is stored in a memory card 24, and by designating a retrieval condition such as an atlas name corresponding to an atlas, a page, an area or an attribute of a spot, spot information which satisfies the retrieving condition is retrieved from the spot information stored in the memory card 24 and a result of the retrieval is displayed on a display unit 23 in a superimposed relationship with an over wide image of the atlas. Further, desired spot information as the result of the retrieval is selected, and the selected spot information is stored as position information of a current location or a destination into a position information memory 12. The disclosed apparatus allows a beginner who is not familiar with the operation of the device to input position information such as a destination readily in a short time without confusion.
