You can contact Navit developers 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


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


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.

  • navit-users - For help or advice, use the navit-users mailing list.
  • navit-commit - This is generally a read-only mailing list which will enable you to keep up-to-date with the latest commits to the Navit source in the subversion repository.
