Well, the current CC license specifies that the attribution notice has to be 
reasonable to the medium.

In other words, if your mobile navigator has limited screen real state, you 
may choose to display or not to display an OSM logo or copyright notice in 
the main screen.

A simple splash screen with the logo and URL is fine. A notice on the "about" 
section of your program (if you have it) is fine. However, please do link to 
www.openstreetmap.org *and* either the license page on the wiki[1] or the 
CC-by-sa license[2].

As we have seen in The State of the Map last weekend, displaying the names of 
all contributors can be a daunting task.
