to use a digital topo map with navit you would build it into the garmin format 
img file and then use that

tangogps doesn't have the choice of adding topo
but on the other hand you can update a few tiles at a time (it took me ages to 
figure it out, but its possible.)
so if the modem is working and i have phone coverage i get more tiles on the 
road with GPRS

navit - you put all of australia on at once.
