Wahou !
That is way faster than before ! great !

So, I can view the maps, calculate the directions, but It does not
read gps data.
I am using FSO, and apparently there is no gpsd in the repositories.

The svn version you are using should have the gypsy patch, but I don't
see any vehicle_gypsy in /usr/lib/navit/vehicle/. Is it compiled it
with some options (like --disable-gypsy) ? or something like that ? (I
don't see any --enable-gypsy ;) )
If so, could you rebuild it with gypsy enabled ? :) (don't have a
build env. setup yet)

Any other way to make it work in FSO ?

Thank you !
