#1313 new enhancement/feature request

Better out of the box experience for the desktop version

Reported by: joaopirralha Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords:


Navit should just ask for a map file if none is configured/found (such after a fresh installation). It could directly use .bin files and convert .osm, .bz2 and .pbf files with maptool, creating the .bin files in the configuration directory (e.g. ~/.navit) (maybe giving the option to store in a user-specified directory). It should be easy to add and remove (not only disable) maps from the internal and GTK+ interfaces. It also should be easy to switch between the internal and GTK+ interfaces (maybe it could only take effect in the next instance). A user shouldn't have to manually edit the .xml file in normal circumstances.

These are all valid points (unfortunately). However, that is several big enhancements in one ticket :-).

We'll try to get to it, but it will take a while...
