Hi Everyone,

Has anyone had any luck using Shapefiles in Navit?

I understand the syntax is
<map type="shapefile" enabled="yes" data="/path/to/"/>

However when I try this with a sample Shapefile downloaded from Geofabrik, Navit won't launch. When I revert to a binfile all is good.

I know, tantalisingly, that support was implemented but not documented (there is a shapefile.c component in the Navit installation folder). There is also an open ticket here:

Before you ask, the reason I want to know is because I obtain Shapefiles from another maker that I want to use.

To repeat, has anyone, anywhere, ever got a Shapefile working in Navit? :?:

Hi Peter.

The driver has been fixed and using Shapefile maps is now documented here :
