Unfortunately, configuring navit isn't exactly user-friendly. It
requires editing an XML file. There's no easy clicky-clicky interface.


Also, acquiring and loading maps isn't user-friendly. You can download
navit maps from cloudmade, but you have to manually copy them into the
right location, referenced from the navit.xml file you edited earlier.
