Is navigation only available with the prebuilt OSM binary map data for
Navit?  I have one of the prebuilt planet.bin files and I can
successfully (well, somewhat) search for towns, etc.  However, I also
downloaded 2 other smaller binary maps files from and there seems to be no
searchable town data in those files, or at least Navit doesn't find
any when I try to search a town.  The only one it finds is some place
called "Matei" when I enter an M.

Sorry if this is somewhere on the Navit site, I ddin't see it.
