Thank you guys for the many answers!

I have read on the list that navit requires many tweaks to run with an
acceptable speed
on the freerunner. So what is the best way to install it? On debian?
On shr? On om2009?

I think this gps navigation is so complex, that usually people buys a
dedicated device
for it. I think it would be appropriate to build some hand-tuned,
tweaked images
for Freerunner. Maybe there is already available uSD image....

The wiki is a bit too neutral about it. Would be nice to see the best
(speed-wise) option is,
and no need to try everything out and spend weeks on tweaking.
