We can discuss about navit on iphone here !

Trying Jan's build on OSX :

Using cmake gui :

Building with CMake V3.6.0
CMake Warning at /Applications/ (message):
 Ignoring CMAKE_OSX_SYSROOT value:
 because the directory does not exist. 
Call Stack (most recent call first):
 /Applications/ (include)
 CMakeLists.txt:4 (project)

The SDK seems to be installed in /Applications//

I would like to add automatic builds for the iphone to our build service at But I guess I need some help from you for that. Can you either come to our irc channel #navit at or contact me via email? cp15(at) --Cp15 21:23, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Test feedback

Hi! I'm not developer. I installed and tryed this beta - and my experience is quite bad - actualy, I did not managet it to work. Navit opens, shows the map, and GPS find my location on it, I can zoom in and out, move around map, but that's it. I did not find how to move any further.

* Go Actions => Towns
* Click on the cross (top-left of the screen)
* Fill with your country name 
* Your country should appear on the screen.
* Validate (top-right of the screen)
* Fill with a Town name.
* Your town should appear on the screen.
* Validate
* Set as destination.
Your device should now indicate directions to reach your city from your position. 
1. size of the maps and place of iPhone - planet.bin is kind of 2 gigs, but free space in /var/mobile/ is some hundreds of MB. Is it possible to place maps in home, not in root?
On my device /var is mounted on /private/var which is the home partition. 
But anyway, you can specify your own map path in /var/mobile/.navit/navit.xml (Copy it from /usr/share/navit/navit.xml).
You can can use all maps from to reduce your map size.
2. Can I somehow show, which map to use? I extracted small map for my city and named it eu.bin - to fit in /var/mobile/maps/
Default is in /var/mobile/Media/Maps/eu.bin
3. "Tools" is not working - taping on tools icon gives no result.
 No tool implemented yet
X. Some minimal user guide (or video) would be great!
This port of navit sw on iphone is still a beta, there are some bugs, we are trying to fix them. Some videos will be posted soon on this wiki.
