Emulator has no GPS fix unless you explicitly tell it: telnet localhost 5554 geo fix 31.6962 35.1142

Even on real hardware (FreeRunner?) navit-svn-2696.apk takes couple minutes to transfor from yellow page to showing data.

IMHO, navit should print something like "Waiting for fix..." and not leave users frustrated with the yellow page.

The map issue could have been caused by an inconsistent relationship between maptool and navit. It usually occurs when you are using a map made with a different maptool revision than your navit binary. Unfortunately it's hard to tell because the attached log doesn't give much details. Please try with a recent revision of navit (from for example) and a recent map from (if you don't want to process your maps yourself, it's the best option).

About the 'yellow page' : by default, until you get a fix, navit will center the view on the coordinates it was centered last time you used it. If there is no such saved coordinates (in ~/.navit/center.txt by default) it will use the center value configured in navit.xml.

So, if you have a map, but don't see it until you get a fix, you can try to remove the center.txt file and check/change the default coordinates in navit.xml.

Or, more easily, you can touch the screen, go into action, search for a town, and select "View on map". It will center the view on the search result, and next time you startup navit, even if you didn't had a fix, you should see the map.

Since it doesn't seem like a bug to me, i will close the ticket. Hope it helps, feel free to reopen.
