Navit Wiki

Navit is an open source (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.


December 2010: Navit 0.2.0 "Long Awaited" is here! As its codename states, it's been a while since the last Navit release, but a lot of work has been done (we have X commits since last release!)



  • June, 2010: Navit has its very own article in the German Linux User magazine.
  • January 19th, 2008: Navit has been featured as picture of the week on OpenStreetMaps! Thank you guys!

Most of Navit's configuration options are changed by editing navit.xml. A full list of options is also available for power users. You can configure all aspects of Navit, including how Navit looks and behaves, and how maps appear in Navit.

Navit can use a variety of map sources, including OpenStreetMaps, unlocked Garmin maps and Marco Polo Grosser Reiseplaner maps. For a quick start, download a map from Navit Planet Extractor.


The Navit IRC channel is your primary destination if you're having problems, or want to ask general questions about Navit.
