You can contact Navit team and frequent users for help or advice through a variety of methods. Though you can use any of the methods below, but the IRC channel will probably result the quickest response.

Contact Options

Getting Help

IRC

Come join us in the channel to ask questions, provide suggestions or generally hang out.

Rules

  • Use English. Whilst not a hard-and-fast rule, there are a variety of nationalities represented within the channel, and English has been chosen as the primary language of communication. If your English is non-existant (then how are you reading this?!) then try to ask in your native language, but don't expect to be answered in a timely manner (unless it's German...)
  • Be patient. There are usually a lot of people logged in, but most of these people are not constantly monitoring the channel. Ask a question, then wait patiently for a reply. If you know the person to which your questions should be directed, include their nickname in your message so that their chat window is highlighted.
  • Use the logs. If your question is not answered before you have to logoff, leave a message to say that you'll check the logs and hopefully someone will reply later on.


Forums

The forums can be found on the Sourceforge support pages for the Navit project. As with the mailing lists, there are two forums:

  • Help - For general help queries on installing, running or contributing to Navit. Please don't use this to report bugs - use Contacts#Trac instead.
  • General Discussion - For discussing Navit in general, such as new features or ideas for the roadmap.

Mailing Lists

There are two mailing lists. One is specifically for helping users.

  • navit-users - For help or advice, use the navit-users mailing list.

Reporting Bugs/Feature Requests

IRC

Check on the #IRC channel first to see if what you are experiencing is actually a bug, or if it's a problem with your setup.
