There is an experimental driver for Garmin IMG maps.

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

Please give us feedback / bug report about this driver!


First, get libgarmin from svn, and install it, as usual :

svn co libgarmin
cd libgarmin

And, as root :

make install

How to build the driver

Go into navit source directory :

cd navit

Get these Navit patches:


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 garmin

Next reconfigure and build navit.

cd ../..
./ && ./configure && make

Configure your map source

Now add your first garmin map to navit.xml

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