I'm only able to make navit work with the AGPS Gui running in the
background, otherwise it doesn't seem to get a fix. I can't remember if
2008.8 has agpsgui (I'm using 2007.2), but you might try using it to get
a fix, then starting navit. I'm not sure if this is a navit thing, or a
gps thing in general.
