Configuration

  • Tags shown in order of appearance in the navit.xml shipped with Navit.
  • Bold values denote default values if attributes are not explicitly specified.
  • Value types:
    • int = integer
    • bool = boolean 1 or 0
    • dbl = double
Navit configuration options
Tag Attribute Units Values Notes Example
navit
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.
orientation="-1"
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.
tracking="1"
zoom 1 - ∞
256
zoom="1": Most zoomed in. Upper limit is actually 2097152.
Map will be zoomed in at this level on startup.
zoom="50"
autozoom_active 0 / 1 autozoom_active="0": Autozoom disabled.
autozoom_active="1": Autozoom enabled.
autozoom_active="1"
autozoom_secs seconds 1 - ∞
10
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".
autozoom_secs="60"
pitch degrees 1 - 359 pitch="0": Bird's-eye view of map.
pitch="20": Map tilted by 20 degrees to give 3D view.
pitch="20"
radius percent 1 - 100
30
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.
radius="33"
recent_dest 1 - ∞
10
Number of entries kept in destination.txt. This text file stores the most recent destinations set by the user in Navit.
Default: ∞
recent_dest="20"
timeout gps updates 1 - ∞
10
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 gtk_drawing_area

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"

Insert inbetween <vehicle> ... </vehicle> tags for all other types.
type nmea
gpx
textfile
binfile
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.
type="gpx"
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)
data="%Y%m%d-%i.gpx"
overwrite 0 / 1 Toggle to choose whether an existing tracklog of the same name gets:
overwrite="0": Appended to, or
overwrite="1": overwritten
overwrite="1"
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_size="1048576"
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.
flush_size="90"
attr_types position_time_iso8601
position_direction
position_speed
profilename
position_radius
position_height
position_sats_used
position_hdop
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.
attr_types="position_height,
position_direction"
osd Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags.
See OSD for comprehensive information on on-screen display settings.
vehicle Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags.
name vehiclename 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.
enabled="yes"
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.
gpsd_query="w+xj"
tracking Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags.
cdf_histsize metres 0 - ∞ Cumulative displacement filter. Currently not used by Navit. See [1] for what it would do. cdf_histsize="4"
vehicleprofile Insert inbetween <navit> ... </navit> tags.
name profilename The name of the vehicle profile. This name is used by the profilename attribute inside the vehicle tag. name="car"
flags hex value The flags (as defined in AF_* in attr.h) which needs to be set to be able to pass this road. See VehicleprofileFlags for a comprehensive list of bit values. flags="0x4000000"
flags_forward_mask hex value The bits the flags_forward_mask has set in addition to flags, a way must not have set in order to be used in forward direction. More technically: the flags of a way are ANDed with this mask, if the route uses the way in forward direction. The result must match flags otherwise the way must not be used. E.g. flags_forward_mask="0x4000000" and flags_forward_mask="0x4000002" means a road may be used in forward direction if it is a ONEWAYREV (See VehicleprofileFlags). flags_forward_mask="0x40000000"
flags_reverse_mask hex value Identical to flags_forward_mask for ways in the reverse direction. flags_reverse_mask="0x40000000"
maxspeed_handling 0 - 2 maxspeed_handling="0": Always handle the maxspeed attribute of a street.
maxspeed_handling="1": Only handle the maxspeed attribute of a street if it restricts the speed.
maxspeed_handling="2": Never. Reason behind this is that a pedestrian doesn't want to travel with 30 km/h when there is a speed limit.
maxspeed_handling="1"
route_mode 0 - 2 route_mode="0": Automatically select between an on-road route and an off-road route (if the off-0road route is shorter than the distance to the next street from the current position plus the distance to the next street from the destination).
route_mode="1": Always use an on-road route.
route_mode="2":: Always us an off-road route
route_mode="0"
static_speed km/h 0 - ∞ If the speed between positions from two gps updates is larger than static_speed Navit will accept the new position. static_speed="5"
static_distance metres 0 - ∞ If the distance between positions from two gps updates is larger than static_distance Navit will accept the new position. static_distance="25"
roadprofile Insert inbetween <vehicleprofile> ... </vehicleprofile> tags.
item_types Types of ways for which this roadprofile is valid. Way types can be found in FIXME. item_types="steps"
route_weight km/h 0 - ∞ The weighting which the routing algorithm should give this road type. A large route_weight will force the routing algorithm to choose that road type over others when calculating a route. This value is also used to calculate the route time remaining IF maxspeed_handling="2". route_weight="150"
speed km/h 0 - ∞ ns. speed="50"
maxspeed km/h 0 - ∞ When driving, Navit will use the maxspeed of the road type to inform the driver of the current speed limit using the speed_warner. maxspeed will only be used if there is no OSM speed data for that road. This data is not used for routing calculations. maxspeed="50"
announcement Insert inbetween <roadprofile> ... </roadprofile> tags.
level 0, 1, 2 Type of oral announcement to make. For example, level="2" means an announcement such as "Turn left soon" will be made. level="0"
distance_metric metres 0 - ∞ Distance from the upcoming manoeuvre to perform the announcement. distance_metric="25"
