I am also trying to use Navit on my tablet but I have still some questions :


  The GTK one wotkw well but "internal" although promising is a bit disappointing !

  How initiate a roure from that GUI ?

  The menu you can invoke have items that

    - either do not work
    - or seems to work but do not record the preferences for instance

- Routing

  I have not succeeded to initiate a route : either specifying a location as "destination"
  or trying the destination window does not work

As for the XML file, I find it very useful and clear !
