gui internal


Ok, first replace




in the <gui ... /> tag in navit.xml.

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

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


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

When you have the internal gui working, a next step could be to look at the On Screen Display, or OSD for short. Using the OSD you can overlay the map with various items for status information and control.
