That's two questions and IMHO two answers. No, I don't think that a PPC + GPS +Software is going to integrate as well as an all in one solution. Especially if you stick with the included mapping software. There is essentially no setup, except for loading the maps you will need.
The drawback is that you won't be able to upgrade the pieces like you would with the component system, and the iQue isn't particularly top of the line when it comes to PPC specs. With Components, you could get a new PPC or a new GPS or different mapping software if you choose.
The second answer is yes, most all the mapping software packages do allow you to reach into the contacts DB and pull out the address (home or business usually) and locat it it or route to or from it.
I think if you are purchasing the unit primarily with navigation in mind, you will be happy with the iQue. If you are wanting a PPC and all that it entails, and also want to take advantage of it's capabilities paired with a GPS, then I'd go for seperate pieces. That takes a bit more futzing with to get going, but it quickly becomes routine.
