NAV: A File Browser for the C64
Easily navigate your software library, in style! Works with uIEC, IDE64, and "real" Commodore drives...
I'm pleased to introduce NAV, a new file browser for the C64. NAV can use a mouse in Port 1, joystick in Port 2, or the keyboard. NAV can work with up to five drives and has been tested with the following drive types:
1541, 1571, 1581, uIEC, IDE64
Browsing through directories and disks is just point and click! Drives like the uIEC that can store gigabytes of software can be tedious and frustrating to navigate. NAV lets you easily work with D64/D71/D81/DNP/M2I disk images as well as "real" Commodore disks and the IDE64. Up to five drives at a time!
Pressing the "@" key brings up a command line that acts just like the good ol' DOS Wedge. In addition, there are a few additional commands that can be entered on the command line. Just type "@HELP" to get the complete list.
NAV can be found in the Public Disk area, in the Utilities/Disk Tools folder. You can also download it directly HERE.

Alan, Nice, I'll have to give this a try on my Thunderdrive this weekend.
I like the interface layout, nicely done sir.
Alan, good job I will give this a try as well, this software may help with a
project I am working on, thank you sir for this much needed software.
Outstanding! Great job Alan!
Excellent work, Alan! Nice interface and easy to use.
Looks great, Alan!
Oops. If you are using a non-uIEC SD2IEC device, you should re-download the bug-fixed version of NAV. It should work properly for you now.
Any chance of making it work with the 1541 Ultimate II in the future? I've tried this on my SD2IEC and it works great and looks good!
Thanks, E-Doo. I don't own a 1541 Ultimate, and I don't know anything about how one operates. So, if it doesn't work with NAV now, it probably never will. Sorry.
Hi! need some help here. I have downloaded the zip file, copied the uncompressed nav96.d64 to my sd card. when I do an LOAD"NAV*",8,1 it wont load and give me an error. I am using C64 infinity by manosoft.
What I am doing wrong??
I am using an C128 in C64 mode. Wont load on C128 mode also.
I can load the program if I use FB and then browse the card and load the NAV. going direct to card it wont load... By the way, fantastic app
I've put NAV inside a D64 disk image. Don't try to LOAD this. Using a wedge like JiffyDOS, type: @CD/:NAV96.D64 first. Then you can LOAD and RUN the program normally.
After LOADing NAV, you can resave it wherever you like on your SD card.
Found a minor issue. The ML of this program tends to get in the way of modem ML such as those found in CCGMS or Touchterm. If you are going to do TELBBSing or Qlink, it would probably be wise to bypass NAV and go straight to the application. Otherwise, you'll get a very strange crash when you start to transmit/receive more than a few characters.
