I assume that one would have to do some custom work to integrate navit or monav (or any application) into this IVI system. As I understand it, these packages basically act as a compositor. Code providing the actual information and interfaces exists as separate applications. I was hoping some of those applications written with these base libraries in mind might be available as Free Software.

I'm afraid there aren't a whole heck of a lot of them out there. Alison is certainly more knowledgeable on the subject than I, however.
David Anders has also started a resource section on the elinux.org wiki that lists a few packages worth exploring. It is a post-ALS creation, though, so it may take time before contributors manage to link in all the extant options, many of which are one-developer projects at this stage.

I also recommend having a look at mp3car.com forums, scantool.net forums, #linuxice IRC on freenode and (until elinux.org page Nate mentions exists):
There were working Ubuntu and Debian packages for nobdy and libobd before the maintainer fell far behind, but I hear she hopes to catch up over Thanksgiving.

- GENIVI created a proof of concept using navit and standardized GENIVI APIs, so yes, navit should work "out of the box" on a GENIVI based IVI system.
- Navigation is one of those differentiating areas, and it is hard to do well (ask Apple.)
