Can confirm that a BU-353 GPS dongle, an Ubuntu netbook with Navit 
running worked perfectly on the way home - an amazing level of detail - 
even traffic lights (although some were missed which I am interested in 
how to contribute to).

Very impressive - for something still in development.

Now if I can get speech working and a customised interface I basically 
have a proof of concept turn by turn navigation system.
