Instead of using globals, which you will hate yourself for in the
morning, how about returning the value you want:

(not really following the problem you are trying to solve)

    my $intendedDest = Nav_to_start::Navigate($ccDir);

And maybe using modules instead of require() and export the method you

    use Nav_to_start;

    my $intendedDest = Navigate( $ccDir );
