I am trying to run topological_navigation (documentation here ) on a Toyota HSR robot which I need a running instance of move_base for. I've run move base using the command rosrun move_base move_base but when I give my robot a navigation goal I get the error saying "The robot's starts position is off the global cost map. Planning will always fail, are you sure the robot has been properly localized?" even though I have properly localized the robot. Any help would be much appreciated.

can you please post a screenshot of rviz with map topic set to costmap and tf data with the frames: map, odom, base_link, to help you in debugging the problem?
