Navit is an open source (GPL) car navigation software for Linux systems. It will display your position on a map (in bird-view mode or as a 3D "visualization") from GPS sensor data, and can provide precise route calculation, touch screen functionality and supports Points of Interest (POI), which can be extended via an easy to use plugin system. Unlike other navigation systems, Navit maps are dynamically generated in real time from vector data.

The best navigation system is useless without maps. Navit supports these various map formats:

* OpenStreetMaps
o You can download pre-compiled (ready-to-use) maps using the OpenStreetMap-data from the the navit planet extractor ;-)]™ which allows you to select a region of OpenStreetMap to extract. This will give you a binary file that can be used directly by Navit without further processing. The planet extractor's map data is updated daily.
o Or you can download pre-processed Navit-compatible map packages from cloudmade.com
* Australian OSM extract
o Bigtincan maintains a regular extract for navit, which does support navigation and search of the Australian data.
* European maps
* Garmin maps
* US/Tiger maps
* Other maps or how you could display POI, tracks or routes from other sources
