Install librsvg. (or rather librsvg-2-gtk in case of the Ångström development)

(Re)start navit.
You'll see a screen with the map with more room for the map when compared to the gtk view.

If your OS provides you with a keyboard that you prefer to the one navit gives you, you should try setting


inside the <gui .../> tag.


Tick on the screen (I use an ipaq), or click on the screen with the mouse and the screen switches to a menu.

On Screen Display[edit]
