Navit is highly configurable. Options such as cursor shape, map rendering, vehicle behaviour and display layouts can all be configured. This page aims to show the most common options which a first-time user may want to change - for the power user please also see the full list of options.

Introduction

Configurable Sections

General

Options such as starting position, 3D orientation and metric/imperial can be modified in the general Navit tag. Autozoom and map orientation can also be configured in this section.

Display

A large number of display properties can be configured, including desktop or touchscreen-optimised GUIs, on-screen display items and complete control over menu items.


Vehicle

A number of vehicles can be defined within Navit, depending upon the device and/or operating system in use. Vehicle profiles (eg: car, pedestrian, bicycle...) are also completely configurable.

Maps

Navit can use maps from a variety of sources, thought the most popular are OpenStreetMap derived maps. Any number of maps can be configured and enabled at any one time.

Layout

Maps are displayed on-screen according to the rules defined in the layout. All aspects of the layout are configurable, from POI icons to colours for a particular type of highway.

Advanced

There are many more options, including debugging, specific plugins (such as Garmin maps), speech announcements and trip logging.
