You are not going to find any $200 Navigation systems that support USB host 
mode.  I bet you won't find any Navigation systems that support host 
mode.   Most handheld products that do support host mode only support UID 
devices like keyboards and mice, and sometimes removable storage 
devices.  Adding anything else would require custom written software.
