I downloaded the latest version of navit and used an new navit.xml- 
file. Now navit works (I think, I deleted the section with "html" 
definition of the subpages?!?)!

It seems that the "deep sleep"- option solved the "battery problem".

But now, the GPRS problem is still unsolved. Can anybody give me an 
hint/ suggestion?
