The latest versions (currently 0.5.0 6089, but has not changed for the last couple versions) frequently reverts to standard setting for vehicle (car) instead of something else (e.g. truck) and also disables routing with waypoints. No update involved, a simple restart of navit often exposes the problem.

System: Phone with Android 4.4

Hi!

Navit currently does not attempt to save these settings. But there's a semi-working code snipped in shipped navit.xml to preserve selected vehicle profile.

To play with it, comment out the line

Code:
<img src='gui_vehicle' onclick='setting_vehicle()'><text>Vehicle</text></img>

and uncomment the line
Code:
<!-- <a href='#Settings Vehicles'><img src='gui_vehicle'><text>Vehicle</text></img></a> -->


Known drawback is lots of error messages in the log while this code is enabled, and it does not support scrolling if your vehicle list does not fin on the screen.

We also have similar code snippet to activate/deactivate maps.

I'd call it working (not semi) :-)

The standard vehicle list does fit the screen on both phone and tablet, and log entries won't bother me too much. What might prove problematic is if routing is active but fails with "out of memory" type of error with profile "car pedantic", it might be impossible to get navit running again if the vehicle type setting is sticky.

Ektus.
