Car navigation system with routing engine
  5 reviews

Navit is a car navigation system with routing engine.

Its modular design is capable of using vector maps of various formats for routing and rendering of the displayed map. It's even possible to use multiple maps at a time.

The GTK+ or SDL user interfaces are designed to work well with touch screen displays. Points of Interest of various formats are displayed on the map.

The current vehicle position is either read from gpsd or directly from NMEA GPS sensors.

The routing engine not only calculates an optimal route to your destination, but also generates directions and even speaks to you using speech-dispatcher.

The Debian packaging for navit doesn't provide any map. To see, where you can get maps from, see .

It works for some time. Yes it is using openstreetmaps and yes it is very flexible. However, when zooming in and out my LM crashes. That is a clear drawback )-:

Still a long way to go before it comes close to any of the commercial products.
