You can embed navit in two ways: you can make navit embed itself by setting NAVIT_XID.

Here is a Qt sample to embed navit's window into your own window:

 container = new QX11EmbedContainer(this);
 QString wId = QString::number(container->winId());
 setenv("NAVIT_XID", wId.toAscii(), 1);
 process = new QProcess(container);
 process->start("navit");

Navit can also get "pulled" by using a corresponding function of your project (e.g. void QX11EmbedContainer::embedClient(WId id) for Qt 4.4).
