This guide shows you How to Install Kodi 17 Navi-X (or Kodi 16 Jarvis Navi-X).
Why in the Blazes? Navi-X is still one of the best streaming TV Addons for movies, TV shows, and Kodi live IPTV channels.

Kodi 17 Navi-X Not Working?
- If Navi-X on Kodi 17 isn’t working for you, try these steps:

- If that doesn’t work, reinstall Kodi then reinstall Navi-X.
- Finally, if that doesn’t work, reset your device to Factory Default Settings and try the whole process over again!
Or try a Navi-X alternative TV Addon:
Why is Navi-X Different?
Navi-X is a totally unique addon because it has its own entirely different user interface.
The Navi-X app is different from other Kodi addons (like Exodus) because other Kodi addons use the “general Kodi addon interface” as opposed to their own interfaces.
Also, Navi-X is found under “Program Add-Ons” instead of “Video Add-Ons” like most other TV Addons.
Alternatives to Navi-X:
- Kodi 17 Phoenix (and Kodi 16 Phoenix) is great for TV show episodes and movies because it has a Netflix-style interface.
- Castaway for Kodi 17 and Kodi 16 is perfect for streaming live sports / IPTV channels (national, regional, and local)
How to Use Navi-X for Kodi 17 and 16
- After you launch Navi-X, select “START HERE“.
- Then select a movie list (for example: “TOP MOVIES 2017”).
- Finally, choose a movie from a movie list to start watching it. If Navi-X doesn’t work or fails to start the stream, try a different movie list or a different movie / TV show / IPTV channel. Or see the “Kodi 17 Navi-X Not Working” troubleshooting steps above.
- If you have Navi-X buffering issues, look at our Fire TV buffering guide or our Kodi buffering guide.
Navi-X is still one of my Top 10 Best Kodi addons. The Navi-X Kodi 17 and Kodi 16 app is the best because Navi-X pulls contents from many, many sources around the Internet
Therefore, Navi-X is guaranteed to have lots of great video content due to the huge variety of sources from which it streams.
Additionally, this tutorial serves as a How to Install Navi-X on XBMC guide as well. This is because Kodi is the same thing as XBMC!
