Hints on compiling Navit for the Nokia N810

Gerrit Visser managed to compile the current SVN code of Navit for the N8x0. Though he shared some valuable hints (thanks a bunch!), I didn’t manage to compile the current Navit code in my own Scratchbox environment yet. I’m pretty confident we will iron this issue out some day. Gerrit also added some code to start the gpsd on the Maemo platform during Navit’s startup. Previously, you needed to start another GPS application in order to get a position in Navit. Now it’s done automatically. Feels a bit like Xmas time :) .

Anyway, for the time being, you can find automatically built precompiled binaries on Navit’s download pages.
