#995 new enhancement/feature request

Make menu more graphics-oriented where applicable

Description

Most of the menus in navit are in list format, which makes it difficult to press the right item when you're in the car and have thick fingers. Turning the menus more into grid formatted graphics (similar to TomTom? and other devices) would make it easier. Of course this doesn't apply to street names or so, but for the bookmark menu etc.

For street names and similar lists: how about increasing row height? As a side effect, this would allow having multiple lines of text per entry.

Replying to http://wiki.navit-project.org/index.php/user:mvglasow:

This can already be done by altering (or adding) icon_xs attribute of <gui type="internal"> tag in navit.xml.

As a side effect, this would allow having multiple lines of text per entry.

Good idea, but currently our internal gui can't deal with multiline text. If I remember well, Windows graphics module has very poor drawn text width approximation algorithm needed to split text into lines.
