Latest working version is in shr-feeds and its svn-2760 and will be build
later today.

If you really want to use navit from navit. Built against om-2008 instead
image you maybe have installed (I guess shr-unstable). Then you probably
need to remove svn-2758 from /usr/lib/opkg/status file.

Btw latest navit in shr-feeds will be 2 packages, navit-icons and navit
itself for faster opkg upgrade of often upgraded navit "application" and
icons will be updated only when needed.
