    Navit 0.0.2 has been released!

    I thought it was worth a new thread, the other one got too big
    Major enhancement : garmin img driver!

    We're also happy to announce our partnership with short-circuit.com. You will get 5% discount from them if you tell them that you're a Navit user!

    Grab it while fresh : https://sourceforge.net/project/show...ease_id=552088

    Check the wiki for docs :
    http://navit.sf.net/wiki/

    Meet the devs on IRC, irc.freenode.org channel #navit.

    We have also created a user mailing list, if you want help, or just want to chat about navit : https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/...fo/navit-users

    The announcement :

    NavIt-0.0.2 is out!

    Three months after the first public release, we've bundled a new version of NavIt.

    This release includes, amongst other things :

    * enhanced make install, with translations in 8 languages
    * better support for osm data, with new binfile format faster than old text driver
    * package building includes download of a osm sample map, so you can see how it looks and works without having to buy additional software
    * Improved configuration through navit.xml
    * new 'demo' vehicule which allows you to test NavIt, without even having a GPS!
    * the long awaited Garmin IMG driver
    * vehicle logging facility, so you can keep a log of your tracks and share them to OSM
    * several others bugfixes and enhancements. For a complete list, please see http://navit.sourceforge.net/wiki/in...vs_since_0.0.1

    KaZeR. You said in another post that Garmin maps works for display, but you can't search for your destination yet. I was just wondering how far along you are in the process of getting those maps searchable?

    It is being actively worked on. This seems to interest a lot of people

    The plan is first do the routing, then search. And routing is a problem currently, because of crossing. In mg and osm, every road is a segment, but in garmin maps road have intersections, which either need to be computed, or be reverse engineered from the map data. They are encoded somewhere in the map data, but how is not documented.

    We cannot give an ETA, but i will keep this thread updated

    A word for people using OpenStreetMaps maps : you can now fetch a map of the whole world, ready to use with navit : see http://maps.navit-project.org
    A tool to cut areas from this world map is under development, soon you will be able to cut the areas which interest you from this map (like your state/country).

    Navit 0.0.3 "Christmas gift" is out!

    Navit 0.0.3 "Christmas gift" is out!

    Major improvements over 0.0.2 :

    * OpenStreetMap support has been greatly enhanced (navit now uses a binfile driver)
    * garmin support has been greatly enhanced (but routing is still being worked on)
    * some improvements for using navit under OpenMoko (thanks to the OM contributors!)
    * map interaction in GTK : you can now 'slide' the map by pressing mouse and dragging map

    And of course, a lot of bugfixes and other small improvements.

    See the full list for more details.

    If you want, have a look at the roadmap status for 0.0.4 : http://trac.navit-project.org/milestone/version%200.0.4

    Good work so far, been playing around with what's in CVS and it looks really promising. I really want to use linux as my OS, Navit and nGhost look like they're coming along nicely. Now I just need to get bluetooth HFP working .

    nokia n810 and navit

    Hi,

    Somehow I stumbled upon this awesome project and am hoping to get it working on my nokia n810. I have downloaded the planet.bin and copied over the libraries and binaries compiled from my scratchbox environment. When I try to start navit, I get operation not permitted when it attempts to load the .so files. Will this run on the nokia, and less importantly, can I run this on my laptop which is running Ubuntu 7.10/Gentoo 2007?

    This looks like a very cool project, and if it works like I think it does, it will be much better than maemo-mapper or google maps which determine the route for you and send you a map tile.

    Hello Walter!
    Thanks for your interest. Navit will run on nokia nXXX. Some users already made it. Did you have a look here ? http://wiki.navit-project.org/index....t_on_n770/n800

    You will find there the compilations options needed for the internet table. Feel free to add details about what you will learn about navit on this device (i don't own one myself).
    About your laptop, the cegui package for ubuntu isn't that good afaik. GTK gui should run almost out of the box, but we're working on some tweaks for the openGL gui with ubuntu's cegui package.

    Feel free to try, if you need help i'm not far.

    Enjoy!

    navit

    Hi,

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I did get navit working on my Gentoo installation, but I have something wrong with xkbd (I don't have 2 or 4 keysyms per keycode or something in my serverlayout). So whenever I click on Destination, it crashes. I did manage to get it to not crash when clicking on destination, I started xkbd prior to running navit and I get a "blank window" for the destination frame. It appears nothing in there is rendered (I am guessing I have an issue with openGL as I've had similar issues before). I will reboot back into my Gentoo installation to see if my openGL is the problem.

    Yeah, I actually edited the page a little (spelling and the --disable from -disable). I compiled it ok in my scratchbox environment, but cannot run it. It complains about not being able to load the shared objects (Operation not permitted). If I figure out how to run it, I will edit the wiki and describe all the details like setting up the scratchbox environment as I have been taking notes in OpenOffice so I can repeat.

    Maemo-mapper gets a lot of advertisement on maemo.org, and I think this program is more full-featured as it works more like a GPS as you'd expect. I hope to contribute to this project and get it out there on maemo so others can see it too.

    Thanks,
    Walter
