Several other regions are currently in the phase of completion, but a lot of field work remains.
The map runs on the dutch tileserver HERE

19th Navit-ffm.png Navit is a great open-source (GPL) application for routing and navigation. It contains a utility to convert .osm-files to the binary file format used by the main application. There is a SDL and a GTK+ interface. The route calculation is rather fast and it will even guide you with speech-output using speechd or espeak. Since navit renders the map on-the-fly, there's no need for storing a large number of picture-files on the hard drive or even having an internet-connection while using it. Map data from GeoFabirk's Europe-extract from Dec, 30th 2007 is only 151MB in the binary file format. (The .osm.bz2 used to build the binary data was 320MB)

The image shows navit displaying a part of Frankfurt_am_Main using the GTK+ interface with a route calculated by navit. --Jannis 18:33, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
