'''Navit''' is an open source ([http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html GPL]) car navigation software for Linux, Windows systems and portable devices. It will '''display your position on a map''' (in bird-view mode or as a 3D "visualization") '''from GPS sensor data''', and can provide precise '''route calculation''', '''touch screen functionality''' and supports Points of Interest (POI), which can be extended via an easy to use plugin system. Unlike other navigation systems, Navit maps are dynamically generated '''in real time''' from '''vector''' data.
