Dear All ...
It'll be great if Navit can call external program.
Let's say something like :
<osd enabled="yes" type="button" x="0" y="0" command="gui.excall('/usr/local/bin/myprog')" comment="'param1' 'param2'" src="mybutton.xpm" />
And when pressed/clicked , navit will call it in a fire and forget manner. just like :
bino@bino$ /usr/local/bin/myprog 'param1' 'param2' &
I'm prettysure that with this, user can extend Navit using their own programming language preference (python, perl, ruby, etc etc)
