ModRana is a flexible GPS navigation software for (not only) mobile Linux devices.

ModRana is based on Rana and written in Python. The only dependencies other than Python 2.5+ needed for running modRana are PyGTK and Cairo.

  • to enable voice navigation, install espeak (modRana runs just fine without it but it doesn't "speak" :) )


This section demonstrates the functionality of modRana and also serves as a short manual for the time being.

This short guide shows, how to enable turn-by-turn navigation with voice output in modRana.

Where does modRana store maps, tracklogs, POI and configuration files ? Check out the data storage article.

See the GUI map (old graphical version - 2.6 MB PDF).


A short short quide describing how to use the various fetures provided by modRana.

Supported Platforms

The target platform for modRana is Maemo 5 on the Nokia N900.

Are you a N900 user ? Check out the modRana thread at :)

ModRana also works on the Openmoko Neo FreeRunner, Smart Q7 and standard Linux PCs. It is quite possible, that modRana also works on other devices, thanks to the low dependency count.


Instalation packages are available for:

There is also an universal tar archive. This is also basically the complete modRana source code.


Donations for the modRana project are more than welcome! :)
