Have you modified navit.xml? In this version there is an option to
set the gui to a mode called "internal," which is optimized for small
screens. For the "internal" gui type you can also specify icon size.
I believe the default opkg specifies "internal," but doesn't set the
icon size, though there is a sample line in the config file for the
I don't like modifying the default /usr/share/navit/navit.xml, so I like to
# mkdir ~/.navit
# cp /usr/share/navit/navit.xml ~/.navit/
Edit that file, then search for "internal." Around line 30 you'll see
a sample setting for <gui /> for the Neo. Uncomment that, then
comment out the other <gui /> element just below it.
I also found this setting quite nice: a few more lines down there are
number of <osd /> elements (On Screen Display), set zoom_in, zoom_out,
and gui_internal_fullscreen to enabled and disable the rest. This
will give you transparent zoom in and zoom out buttons in the bottom
corners, and a fullscreen toggle in the upper left corner. In
fullscreen mode and with this "internal" gui type, Navit is really
looking like a consumer level map/navigation program on the Neo.
