From Navit's Wiki
- Tags shown in order of appearance in the navit.xml shipped with Navit.
- Attributes appear in alphabetical order for each tag.
- Bold values denote default values if attributes are not explicitly specified.
- Value types:
- int = integer
- bool = boolean 1 or 0
- dbl = double
|center||coords||DD.dd or DDMM.ss|| Map will be centred at these coordinates on startup. Coordinates are either in decimal degrees (with sign in front to denote N/S or E/W) or decimal minutes with trailing N/S or E/W where appropriate.
Default: 53.13 11.70
|center="4808 N 1134 E"|
|orientation||0 / -1|| orientation="0": Map oriented North.
orientation="-1": Map oriented in direction of travel.
This is equivalent to selecting Settings -> Rules -> Northing in the internal gui.
|tracking||0 / 1|| tracking="1": Vehicle cursor will lock to the roads on the map.
This is equivalent to selecting Settings -> Rules -> Lock on road in the internal gui.
|zoom|| 1 - ∞
| zoom="1": Most zoomed in. Upper limit is actually 2097152.
Map will be zoomed in at this level on startup.
|autozoom_active||0 / 1|| autozoom_active="0": Autozoom disabled.
autozoom_active="1": Autozoom enabled.
|autozoom_secs||seconds|| 1 - ∞
| Number of seconds of the way ahead to leave visible during autozoom.
In effect, this specifies the zoom level when autozoom is enabled.
autozoom_secs="1" is closest zoom.
This attribute has no effect without autozoom_active="1".
|pitch||degrees||1 - 359|| pitch="0": Bird's-eye view of map.
pitch="20": Map tilted by 20 degrees to give 3D view.
|radius||percent|| 1 - 100
| Percentage of screen size to offset map from centre when moving.
This causes the map to "lead" the vehicle, showing more of where you're going and less of where you've been.
|recent_dest|| 1 - ∞
| Number of entries kept in destination.txt. This text file stores the most recent destinations set by the user in Navit.
|timeout||gps updates|| 1 - ∞
|When the user scrolls the map, it stays there. After timeout number of GPS updates the map jumps back to the current location of the active vehicle. (see #653)||timeout="5"|
|graphics||Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags|
|Type of graphics to use for display.||graphics="gtk_drawing_area"|
|gui||Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags|
|Type of user interface to use||type="internal"|
|enabled||yes / no||Enable this user interface. This attribute enables you to define multiple user interfaces within navit.xml (i.e. multiple <gui> ... </gui> tags), and quickly switch between them by changing the enabled status.||enabled="yes"|
|font_size||Pt fractions||1 - ∞||The base text size to use for text and labels in the menus. This only applies when type="internal"||font_size="350"|
|icon_xs||pixels||1 - ∞||The size that extra-small style icons should be scaled to (e.g. country flag on town search). This only applies when type="internal"||icon_xs="32"|
|icon_s||pixels||1 - ∞||The size that small style icons should be scaled to (e.g. icons of internal GUI toolbar). This only applies when type="internal"||icon_s="96"|
|icon_l||pixels||1 - ∞||The size that large style icons should be scaled to (e.g. icons of internal GUI menu). This only applies when type="internal"||icon_l="96"|
|fullscreen||0 / 1||fullscreen="1": Start Navit in fullscreen mode||fullscreen="1"|
|menubar||0 / 1||Toggle display of the menu bar. This only applies when type="gtk"||menubar="1"|
|menu_on_map_click||0 / 1||Toggles the ability to bring up the menu screen when clicking on the map. When using menu_on_map_click="0" it is recommended to use an OSD button with the command gui.menu(), or else you can't get to the menu screen! This only applies when type="internal"||menu_on_map_click="0"|
|toolbar||0 / 1||Toggle display of the toolbar. This only applies when type="gtk"||toolbar="1"|
|statusbar||0 / 1||Toggle display of the status bar. This only applies when type="gtk"||statusbar="1"|
|log|| Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags for type="textfile_debug".
Insert inbetween <vehicle> ... </vehicle> tags for all other types.
| Type of log to output.
type="nmea": outputs data as NMEA messages (the data format used by most GPS receivers).
type="gpx": outputs GPX XML files (e.g. for upload to OpenStreetMap).
type="textfile": creates a text file that can be used as a map within Navit
type="binfile": outputs a binary map file for use within Navit
type="textfile_debug": outputs a debug text file.
|enabled||yes / no||Enable logging. This attribute enables you to define multiple log types within navit.xml (i.e. multiple <log> ... </log> tags), and quickly switch between them by changing the enabled status.||enabled="yes"|
|data||filename|| The name for the logfile. There is support for date and time placeholders:
%Y: Current year
%m: Current month
%d: Current day
%i: Next sequential logfile number (to make the filename unique)
|overwrite||0 / 1|| Toggle to choose whether an existing tracklog of the same name gets:
overwrite="0": Appended to, or
|flush_size||bytes||0 - ∞|| The file is kept in memory and will be committed to disk if the size reaches the flush_size limit.
flush_size="0": Writes the tracklog to disk immediately.
When used in combination with flush_time, whichever limit is reached first triggers a disk write.
|flush_time||seconds||0 - ∞|| The file is kept in memory and will be committed to disk after flush_time seconds.
flush_time="0": Writes the tracklog to disk immediately.
When used in combination with flush_size, whichever limit is reached first triggers a disk write.
| Comma-separated list which determines what information will be stored in the log file (in addition to the position, and only if supported by the GPS receiver). This only applies when type="gpx"
See Configuring_Navit#Logging_Trips for descriptions of each type.
|osd|| Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags.
See OSD for comprehensive information on on-screen display settings.
|vehicle||Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags.|
|name||filename||Name of the vehicle being defined. This can be any name you like, but it's usually best to provide descriptive names, perhaps depending on the gps source, or the type of vehicle.||name="Car gpsd"|
|profilename||profilename||The name of the vehicle profile (see below) to use for routing and announcements for this vehicle.||profilename="car"|
|source||Source of GPS data. See Configuring_Navit#Vehicle for the available options.||source="gpsd://localhost"|
|active||0 / 1||Makes the vehicle the active vehicle in Navit - i.e. all its options are used for routing, view centering and map redraws. Note that a vehicle must be enabled="yes" before it can be made active="1".||active="1"|
|baudrate||baud rate||0 - ∞||Baudrate of the com port of a WinCE device. Required if source="wince:COMx:" (where x is the COM port of the gps device). The baud rate should be 4800 in most cases.||baudrate="4800"|
|enabled||yes / no|| Enable the vehicle. This attribute enables you to define multiple vehicles within navit.xml (i.e. multiple <vehicle> ... </vehicle> tags), and quickly switch between them by changing the enabled status or by using the menu options within Navit.
If there is no enabled= tag, the vehicle is automatically enabled.
|follow||0 - ∞||Specifies how many GPS updates to wait before map is refreshed. A value of zero means vehicle will leave the edge of the map before the map is refreshed.||follow="1"|
|gpsd_query||gpsd query|| Command to send to gpsd. Required if source="gpsd://localhost", otherwise this is not used.
The string used in the example is sufficient for use in Navit.
