We consider online routing algorithms for finding paths between the vertices of
plane graphs. We show (1) there exists a routing algorithm for arbitrary
triangulations that has no memory and uses no randomization, (2) no equivalent
result is possible for convex subdivisions, (3) there is no competitive online
routing algorithm under the Euclidean distance metric in arbitrary
triangulations, and (4) there is no competitive online routing algorithm under
the link distance metric even when the input graph is restricted to be a
Delaunay, greedy, or minimum-weight triangulation.
