Hi,

Sorry to ask such a basic question but after trying to use Navit for a day, I've been unable to get it to do anything useful. I have managed to download a map but I can't find a way to enter a destination. The nearest I've got is a box asking for USA->Street but when I type anything it changes the country to the UK. Is there an introductory guide anywhere?

I wonder if maybe I'm misunderstanding the point of the project. Is it perhaps just the core navigation software with a prototype UI and it is expected that some other project will layer a proper UI on top? If so, perhaps I can help as I've written UIs for other projects.

Btw, it would be nice if you could fix your registration process. I was able to log in and write a post but when I tried to submit it just deleted everything. No warning that I needed to confirm my email address first.

J.
