Most statements on the blog are totaly wrong! I use my neo with navit
since I have purchased my neo last autumn! You have to set the correct
device for gpsd once. Then You have to install festival-lite with apt
and by configuring navit-config file in home dir of user. that is it! So
speech output is working, ok english, so You have to set up the
environment variable correct. I did not, because is not so importent for
me. Then navit is usable by using the "QX-way". Radek's new QX-less
version, I have not tested until now. But seems to make it a little bit
easier. So install festival, configure navit correct and it will work....
