Comment Presumably it goes back to the combination of words navis ‛ship’ and agere ‛to put into action, to guide’. In a number of modern languages, the verbs going back to navigare can be used as transitives meaning ‛to drive a vehicle’ — not necessarilt a ship/boat, cf. to navigate a ship, to navigate a plane etc. (Majsak, Rakhilina 2007).
