Given the long history of the C/C++ clients in this project, the configuration has become rather complex. This document aim to describe the overview of the components, how they are related and where to find more information.

The following table describes the configuration of the clients included in the released source code:

ClientUI/front-endCore library

S60 Navigator is a stand alone navigation client, built on the Nav2 repository.

  • There are a number views corresponding to the search functionality in the client. The search functionality consists of a view for entering a search string, choose the country to search within, display previous searches and show the search result. (green color)
  • The client also includes functionality for storing places, which in fact is stored search result. Search results can therefor be added as a “My Place” and edited and removed. (purple color)
  • The client contain two views for navigation, one is the route overview, displaying the route on a 2D map and the second one is the view that is used during driving, showing the route in 2D or 3D.
