Maps Options

Navit can read various map formats, and can even show multiple maps at a time. This is done by defining a mapset. Each mapset can have one or more maps. Using the GTK GUI, you can enable or disable specific maps at runtime.

 <mapset>
   <map type="binfile" enabled="yes" data="/var/navit/maps/uk.bin" />
   <map type="binfile" enabled="yes" data="/var/navit/maps/france.bin" />
   <map type="binfile" enabled="yes" data="/var/navit/maps/*.bin" />
 </mapset>

If you want to include whole dirctories, use the maps tag:

 <maps type="binfile" enabled="yes" data="$NAVIT_SHAREDIR/maps/*.bin"/>

Attention: currently navit causes problems when you use multiple binfiles at once: Ticket #1046
