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[edit]


To get support or discuss with developers, the easiest way is:
You need to login with your wiki credentials!


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


We are also on Discord with a Bridge to our IRC channel

Feel free to join:


As of late July, 2018, Freenode requires verification of user accounts (possibly in reaction to some spam incident). They have instructions for this. In short:

  • Connect with the nick of your choice but no authentication. You will get a message saying that you need to be identified with services.
  • Enter the following (replacing password with a password of your choice):
/msg NickServ REGISTER password
  • Check your email. You will receive a confirmation message with another line to type into the same chat session.
  • Now configure your IRC client to authenticate. The recommended method is SASL, for which Freenode has instructions available.


  • 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[edit]

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

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