core-image-base doesn't come with a GUI, so I'm not sure what you expect.
If you want navit to start up on boot then that's part of the integration
that you'll have to do.

Your question:  you may need to install more than just the navit package.

The packages are the ones listed in the PACKAGES variable in the recipe.
You install them by listing more of them in your INSTALL_IMAGE_append

No idea, I've never used or even look at navit before. You'll have to look
at the contents of the packages to understand what is being put in what
package (or just install all of them).
