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

Forums

To get support or discuss with developers, the easiest way is:
https://forum.navit-project.org
You can login with your wiki credentials

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.

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.
