POI as Navit Text maps

You can display Points of Interest as a Navit map. Therefore was built a utility called gpx2navit_txt which converts gpx files to navit text map-Files. It is possible to convert waypoints and tracks.

Insert the text map Files into the navit.xml like this:

        <mapset enabled="yes">
               <map type="textfile" enabled="yes" data="/home/andi/osm_maps/navit_poi.txt"/>
               <map type="binfile" enabled="yes" data="$NAVIT_SHAREDIR/maps/osm_bbox_11.3,47.9,11.7,48.2.bin"/>

and you will get the poi-data on the map.

That will look like this: POI

Troubleshooting

If nothing is displayed

* check the area of the map
* check if the items of the textfile are defined in your 'navit.xml'
* this is also true for tracks - here it might be that the track is hidden by other objects, check the 'navit.xml'
* check if the xpm-Files are defined and accessible

For example imagine:

* in the text-map you converted with 'gpx2navit_txt' is a type='poi_gc_multi' for a Multicache
* Then the navit symbol will be 'poi_gc_multi' and has to be defined in 'navit.xml' (see for 'example poi_airport')
* the xpm file (normally under '/usr/local/share/navit/xpm') 'gc_multi.xpm' must be present
* for track-display the type is 'track' and 'track' must be defined in 'navit.xml'
