My contact address information is stored in Outlook. After syncing my device, the address info is also on my phone.

Home > People > [contact name] > Navigation button next to the address

A prompt will popup asking which navigation app to use with the option to set one as the default.

Why not just use Latitude? Sounds to me like thats what you need for what your asking.

You can do this with the stock Google Maps or Navigation. As long as you have the address in the contact, just start typing their name inthe the Search box or the Get Directions box, and it will take you there.
