Good point, if PIM could hold a value for coordinates it should not be too hard to implement this in any address book app.
It's 2 dbus calls to get the navit instance and another to set destination 
I did this with dbus-send after activating dbus interface of navit in navit.xml (centering works the same way as setting destination...):
dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.navit_project.navit /org/navit_project/navit org.navit_project.navit.iter
dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.navit_project.navit /org/navit_project/navit org.navit_project.navit.get_navit objpath:"/org/navit_project/navit/main_iter/0"
dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.navit_project.navit /org/navit_project/navit/navit/0 org.navit_project.navit.navit.set_center string:"geo:13.35 52.5"
