  • Milestone To be discussed - Give your opinion! deleted
  • Priority changed from major to trivial

This is not unusual: you either do not have a map enabled, or you don't have a GPS fix yet.

Without a GPS fix Navit will automatically centre itself at the coordinates provided in the centre attribute of the navit tag of navit.xml. See line 31 of navit.xml and you'll find this:

<navit center="4808 N 1134 E" zoom="256" tracking="1" orientation="-1" recent_dest="10"> 

So Navit will be centred at 48.08N 11.34 E, and if you don't have a map enabled for that area then you'll have a yellow screen (the default background). See for more information.

So, can you confirm:

1) You have a map enabled, and tell is where it's for. 2) You have a valid GPS lock, and it's being passed through to Navit properly.

On a side note, I'm using Ubuntu too and I can recommend you don't use the Navit packaged in the Software Centre as last time I tried they weren't very new. For alternatives see:

how this issue could be resolved:

  • Keywords map download binfile menu added
  • Milestone set to version 0.6.0

As in #817 I will schedule this for the next major release, as it's very confusing for endusers as they expect a ready to use solution or at least a wizard guiding them trough the final steps.
