Compiling for the Raspberry Pi
Compiling for the Pi is (of course) mostly like Compiling for Linux.
(Thanks to Angelus88, who posted it here: .)
Want the easy way?
You can try out our automated, unattended install : https://github.com/navit-gps/raspbian-ua-netinst
Prefer to install yourself on Raspian?
First of all, we will have to deal with the dependencies:
sudo apt-get install subversion git imagemagick libdbus-1-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libfribidi-dev libimlib2-dev librsvg2-bin libspeechd-dev libxml2-dev ttf-liberation libgtk2.0-dev
This is for the compiling process:
sudo apt-get install gcc g++ cmake make zlib1g-dev libpng12-dev librsvg2-bin
This is for the SDL graphics (suggested):
sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev libdevil-dev libglc-dev freeglut3-dev libxmu-dev libfribidi-dev
This is for the OpenGL support:
sudo apt-get install libglc-dev freeglut3-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libfreeimage-dev
This is QT (note that the QT gui is not maintained currently) :
sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev
This is for GPSd support :
sudo apt-get install libgps-dev
This is espeak, TTS (text to speech)(optional):
sudo apt-get install espeak
If you want to use Garmin maps ( Openstreetmaps are natively supported and are really detailed ) :
sudo apt-get install libgarmin-dev
Ok, now let's download the latest version of Navit from the repository (starting from your user's folder like /home/pi):
git clone https://github.com/navit-gps/navit.git
CMake builds Navit in a separate directory of your choice - this means that the directory in which the SVN source was checked out remains untouched.
mkdir navit-build cd navit-build
Now the compiling (if you need CSV, keep reading!):
Note : the freetype library has been updated on raspbian, and this broke cmake's ability to find it. Until this bug is fixed ( and cmake is updated to a version > 2.9 ) you will need to add an extra flag to the cmake call :
cmake ~navit -DFREETYPE_INCLUDE_DIRS=/usr/include/freetype2/
Once the above bug has been fixed, you should be able to use only :
If you need the CSV support for POIs, you must use:
cmake --enable-map-csv ~/navit
You are now ready to compile. For a raspberry A, B or B+:
For a raspberry 2:
This can take A LOT of time:
- on a raspberry 2, it takes ~4:30 minutes - on a raspberry b+, it takes ~36 minutes
At the end, you can start Navit (don't forget the configuration! Navit.xml):
cd ~/navit-build/navit/ ./navit
Generating a 3290kms route on the Raspberry pi 2 takes ~ 55s.
Adding Support for UART Serial GPS
connect VCC to pin 1, RX to pin 8 TX to pin 10 and Ground to pin 6 on GPIO for Pi2
Do sudo apt-get install gpsd gpsd-clients python-gps
gpsd /dev/ttyAMA0 -F /var/run/gpsd.sock
to autostart gpsd type
sudo dpkg-rconfigure gpsd select yes add /dev/ttyAMA0 defaults for everything else.
