send coordinates to Navit via dbus (position, destination, map center)

Package: qnavitctl
Tested on: SHR

How to use it:

Create a bookmarks file in CSV format:

NOTE: coordinates must be decimal and only floating point numbers will work

If you name the file bookmarks.csv and place it in your $HOME directory or the directory where qnavitctl is executed, it will be automatically loaded at startup.

Enable dbus in Navit

Edit navit.xml (preferably the one in $HOME/.navit to preserve changes on updates), to load dbus bindings. Make sure it is set to "yes".


<plugin path="$NAVIT_LIBDIR/*/${NAVIT_LIBPREFIX}" active="yes"/>
