Mmm... according to Navit's help, that is exactly what has to happen:


Setting up Navit is done by editing a configuration file. Unless 
specified, it is called "navit.xml". When launching, Navit will look for 
it in the following order:

- The first argument supplied on the command line, e.g.: navit /home/

- The navit.xml file in ~/.navit/navit.xml : e.g : /home/
myusername/.navit/navit.xml. This is probably to best place to customize 
your settings.

- The navit.xml.local file in the current directory. Used mainly for 
development, but maybe also useful for you.

- The navit.xml file in the current directory. 

Which means that by default (unless you tell to do otherwise) it won't 
lookup for "/etc/navit/navit.xml".

You're welcome. Good that you solved it.
