Have you looked into clang_complete? AFAIK they are working on code navigation based on clang as well.

I don't miss code completion. So I have not really experiented too much with clang_complete, but maybe it is a good help for anyone else. Since they are using the same parser a the clang compiler, you probably won't get much better code completion and navigation anywhere else.
