I changed the 'command=gui.fullscreen...'. How does it work for you? Maybe, the attached configuration files should be adapted?

==Release Announcements==
+
Consult the [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Contents User's Guide] for information on using the wiki software.
61 years after "Manchester Baby", the first computer program stored in memory, here comes a new release of Navit.
 
Well, of course, this release isn't as big as Manchester Baby, but, it's important for us anyway :)
 
 
 
Major improvements over the last release :
 
* Configurable Vehicle Profiles, with samples for car, bike, horse, pedestrian
 
* Much more flexible OSDs : Navit can be easily configured to look just the way you want
 
* Support for gps receivers without static navigation enabled
 
* Routing is now computed in background
 
 
 
This release also brings its usual load of bugfixes and various improvements. And Navit is now translated in 38 languages!
 
 
 
Please have a look at our wiki (http://wiki.navit-project.org), report bugs, post patches or share your features requests on our tracker (http://trac.navit-project.org) and join us on irc : #navit on freenode.
 
 
 
Happy routing!
 
 
 
== Getting started & Download ==
 
You can have a look at the [[screenshots gallery]]. If you are a navit user, share your screenshots with us!
 
If you don't know where to start, try the [[Interactive help]]. Perhaps you can also find some useful information on [[related pages]].
 
 
 
=== Download ===
 
* [[Download Navit]] or try a [http://wiki.mandrivauser.de/doku.php?id=allgemein:editionen:navigation Linux Live CD] (German)
 
 
 
 
 
=== Configuring Navit ===
 
Navit is still in heavy development and much of the focus is currently on the functionality aspect of getting things to work. As a result the usability aspect for first time setup and configuration is still a little complicated.
 
 
 
Most configuration options that alter Navit's behavior are available through the navit.xml configuration file. At some time in the future a gui interface will likely be implemented to simplify changing settings but until then use the guide linked below to find out how to setup and configure Navit through the navit.xml file.
 
 
 
* [[Configuring Navit]]
 
 
 
=== Maps ===
 
The best navigation system is useless without maps. Navit supports these various map formats:
 
*[[OpenStreetMaps]]
 
** You can download pre-compiled (ready-to-use) maps, created on-the-fly, using the OpenStreetMap-data from the [http://maps.navit-project.org/download/ the navit planet extractor]™ which allows you to select a rectangular region of OpenStreetMap to extract. This will give you a binary file that can be used directly by Navit without further processing. The planet extractor's map source data is updated daily. The format of maps from this source is always kept in sync with the most recent svn builds of Navit. '''You must rename the file in navitmap.bin''' or the name you have specified in your navit.xml configuration.
 
** <strike>Or you can download pre-processed Navit-compatible map packages from [http://downloads.cloudmade.com cloudmade.com]. It is not guaranteed that the data formats of these maps are compliant with the most recent svn builds of Navit.</strike> '''Recent reports suggest that cloudmade maps are not compatible with the latest svn builds of Navit. Please use another source for maps 10:47, 9 November 2010 (UTC)'''

**[http://map-data.bigtincan.com/data/ Bigtincan] maintains a regular extract for navit, which does support navigation and search of the Australian data.

== Participating in the project ==
 
As bugs are nasty, they should get tracked down and reported. See [[Reporting Bugs]] for further informations. Fresh ideas for new features are also welcome.<br>
 
If you want to contribute and participate in Navit's development, feel free to [[Contacts|contact]] us.<br>
 
We've started to document Navit using Doxygen: http://doxygen.navit-project.org

=== Usability ===
 
Software is designed to be applied in everyday situations and by people that are not developers or technical people. The graphical user interface (GUI) is the interface between front-end users and the core implementation of navit. People that are not developers could help to identify problems with the GUI and help the developers to streamline the GUI for everyday use. You can help by contributing your thoughts and ideas under [[Navit Usability]].

==== For the Navit project: ====
 
* We need [https://translations.launchpad.net/navit/trunk translators], see also the [[Translations]] page in this wiki.
 
* Test navit and [[Reporting Bugs|report bugs or request new features]].
 
* You can also create new [[Configuring_Navit#Custom_Layouts|color layouts for maps]]
 
* Prepare [[OSD Layouts]] for Your device and publish it!
 
 
 
==== For the OSM binary map in Navit: ====
 
* [[item_def.h]] Just add a new Item missing on the osm binary map in Navit. The new Items could be downloaded by using src/script/wiki2def.
 
 
 
Do not forget to insert items in your navit.xml and also provide xpm-Files for the Icons in src/xpm - enter this xpm's in /src/xpm/Makefile.am
