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


Homepage: http://git.senfdax.de/?p=qnavitctl;a=summary
Package: qnavitctl
Tested on: SHR



Contents

How to use it:

Create a bookmarks file in CSV format:

Würzburg;49.7944;9.92944
Nürnberg;49.4528;11.0778
Frankfurt;50.1135;8.67972
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".

example:

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