We should consider overloading it, so that it doesn't just look at the current aircraft position, but so that a lat/lon can be specified optionally - that will be very useful for all mapping needs.
At the moment, it is not possible to look up navaids for an airport that is outside the current range, i.e.:

1) go to KSFO
2) look up KRNO
3) find no navaids rendered for KRNO, because the function will just look at navaids within range of KSFO :-)
