There is an experimental driver for Garmin IMG maps.

It's located here : http://libgarmin.sourceforge.net/ You will need the 'subversion' (svn) tool to install this driver.


Please give us feedback / bug report about this driver!

How to build the driver:

Go into navit source directory :

cd navit

Get these Navit patches:

wget http://libgarmin.sf.net/navit-garmin-items.diff
wget http://libgarmin.sf.net/navit-configure.diff
wget http://libgarmin.sf.net/navit-data-makefile.diff

Apply with:

cat navit-garmin-items.diff | patch -p1
cat navit-configure.diff | patch -p1
cat navit-data-makefile.diff | patch -p1

Next :

cd src/data

And checkout navit's driver

svn co http://libgarmin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/libgarmin/navitdrv/dev garmin

Next reconfigure and build navit.

cd ../..
./autogen.sh && ./configure && make

Now add your first garmin map to navit.xml

       <mapset enabled="yes">
               <map type="garmin" enabled="yes" data="/path/to/gmapsupp.img"/>
       </mapset>
