Tips and Tricks
Compiling, configuring and running Navit on Windows can be a challenge at times. Below are a few hints, in addition to the more detailed instructions following.
- It is best not to use the “win32” GUI (ie <gui type="win32" />) as this is no longer being supported. It is advisable to use the “internal” GUI (<gui type="internal" />) instead.
- Support for NMEA serial GPS receiver devices (USB/Bluetooth) was broken in the win32 port since Navit releases 0.1.0. It is restored with the latest builds (3650 and higer). The configuration for serial devices has changed: For example, a serial device on Com4 can be configured as follows:
<vehicle name="GPSOnCom4" enabled="yes" active="1" source="serial:COM4 baud=115200 parity=N data=8 stop=1" />
