I suggest you all try the new navit
it has a few improvements which MAKE IT USABLE WITH OSM (seems like it
was already usable with map&guide reiseplanner):
*added a 20 MB cache for the FR
*there was a bug until a few days ago which made the navigation to
recalculate at every update (mostly with OSM)
time to calculate route is now acceptable and re-calculating also!
