Introduction

The Remote Interface is a service that lets you interact with the PTV Navigator software.
It gives applications the possibility to execute certain functions of the PTV Navigator remotely, like receiving GPS-information, adding stations, setting the vehicle profile or starting a navigation.
These functions are described in detail on the following pages.

To get started with the service, take a look at the First Steps and the Tutorial page. They contain guides from basic to advanced topics.

The API Reference shows all functions you can call in the PTV Navigator. It gives detailed descriptions of the messages and is the first point to look at if you want to send a certain message to the PTV Navigator.

In the Demos section, you can find infos about our test program, the so called RITest, an Android application which shows how to connect to a running PTV Navigator and send commands to it. It covers all main implementation tasks from getting a connection with the PTV Navigator to examples for every command the PTV Navigator will accept. The sourcecode of this application comes with the PTV Navigator, so take a look at it, if you want to know how a special feature can be implemented.

Intents

You can also start the PTV Navigator software via a mechanism called Intents. Intents allow to configure the starting behaviour of PTV Navigator. You can for example start a navigation to a given target or initiate a tour for a given .bcr file. For further information please have a look at the Intents page.
