 Its modular design is capable of using vector maps of various formats
 for routing and rendering of the displayed map. It's even possible to
 use multiple maps at a time.
 The GTK+ or SDL user interfaces are designed to work well with touch
 screen displays. Points of Interest of various formats are displayed on
 the map.
 The current vehicle position is either read from gpsd or directly from
 NMEA GPS sensors.
 The routing engine not only calculates an optimal route to your
 destination, but also generates directions and even speaks to you using
 Navit currently speaks 8 languages :
