#459 new defect/bug

correctly choose (mirrored) roundabout icons for UK and other left-driving countries

Reported by: tiiiim Owned by: Singesang
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.6.0
Component: osd/core Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: osd, i18n, lane
Cc: nick@…


Although the route shown on the map takes the user the correct way around the roundabout in the UK, the icon displayed using OSD instructs the user to go the other way around (correct for most of the world, but sadly not in the UK...)

  • Priority changed from trivial to minor

We need a locale check which will check for which side of the road cars drive, because the icon shows the wrong way around the roundabout, and the text-to-speech engine also tells "the third exit" when it should be the first and vice versa. It's not just the UK where cars drive on the left. I'm also upgrading this from trivial.

When entering a roundabout (Ireland, en_IE, ENI, IRL), the correct speech is given ("Enter the round about and take the first exit") but the OSD image is incorrect. The OSD image is telling me to go the wrong way around the roundabout and what looks like a third exit.

That is, instead of using nav_roundabout_l1, it is displaying nav_roundabout_r7

Is there a way to force Navit to use the correct images based on Locale settings?

  • Summary changed from Require new (mirrored) roundabout icons for UK to correctly choose (mirrored) roundabout icons for UK and other left-driving countries
  • Type changed from enhancement/feature request to defect/bug

confirming the bug exactly as number6 said above.

However I'd say the selection should be based on the oneway-direction tagging of the roundabout.

In the wince package there are only 32 pix navigation icons, some bigger would be helpful as well.

While not a "good fix", simply changing the filenames will suffice for now, for us who drive on the left. I've put up images on

Along with a tarball of the images at

  • Keywords osd i18n lane added
  • Milestone changed from version 0.5.0 to version 0.6.0

We need to discuss the internationalisation even for other aspects (map style colouring, highway signs, ...) so that would be wise, to create a unified way to switch country/locale specific behaviour.

As this is more complex, I assign it to the next major release 0.6

  • Severity set to normal

Should be fixed as part of Project HighFive?, which analyzes the roundabout more thoroughly and can thus determine if traffic flows clockwise or counterclockwise.

The only thing that's still problematic are places in which map data is corrupt (namely self-intersecting roads). Otherwise the correct icon should be displayed now.
