I can't decide from here, but can't you get a "2nd opinoin" from another shop? Find a shop that does "unibody straightening" so they can properly measure whether anything else is bent.

The way the subframes are bolted on at both ends, it IS possible that the body structure isn't bent.

Who's insurance company is denying the damage to your navi system? If hers, then maybe you need to get YOUR insurance company involved. It's their job to fight for your side.

Or you could refuse to sign-off on their settlement if you're not happy with it. Be careful what you sign, because sometimes they want you to "agree" that their payment amount is OK.

For the navigation system, is it just the navigation system that doesn't work now or are there also problems with the stereo system, etc.?

If it is only the navigation system, have you tried removing and reinserting the disc?

I agree with JimBlake regarding getting your insurance company involved since the other driver is liable.
