I'd really love to use Navit for riding with my bike with display turned off most of the time (to save battery). I thought Navit should be perfect for this, because you get spoken announcements if you have to turn left or right.
But unfortunately since one week I'm running into several problems that can be confirmed in the Android version. There seems to be no way to get into the official Navit forums (my login request is still unanswered). So I hope I can find someone here who can help
It seems like it isn't possible to get a routing on some streets. You can see a small example in the picture below with a route of about 50 meters. When I make the route some meters longer, I get no result any more on my HP Veer. On an Android device you can see a ridiculous alternative route that is calculated for my bike to avoid the few unwanted 30 meters (go across the meadow, drive to the highway, drive along the highway to the next exit, turn around, drive back the highway, jump over the barrier, go across the meadow). I guess Android ignores that bikes are not permitted to drive on highways.
I had a look into the data of OSM, where the new piece of track is defined. There seems to be a problem for element 34786412 (and the tracks that follow). I think it is caused by the attribute access=agricultural which isn't set at the element before. So easiest would be to delete this (correct) attribute on my individual map.
Here comes the next problem: I can export an osm file - but I can't convert it into a bin file. There seems to have been a tool named maptool to convert osm files, but it isn't delivered any more (I guess because there was a bigger change in the osm system 2013 (at least if I read all informations correctly). So how can I convert my manipulated file?
Next problem: There's an alternative called route guard. After really long and hard work I could finally make this run on my HP Veer. But it is only saying once that you have left your previously imported track. But I can't see the track on my device, so I don't know if I left my track to the left or the right...
Any ideas how this riddle can be solved?
