I’m not quite picturing what you would like to do with the navigation tabs. Could you set up a basic demo of what you have now – try modifying [this demo](http://jsfiddle.net/Mottie/ycUB6/) – so I can better help?
And by the way, you know you don’t need to use the built-in navigation, you can add your own custom navigation. Check out [this demo](http://jsfiddle.net/Mottie/ycUB6/79/) to see how. Feel free to explore the other [navigation demos on the main wiki page](https://github.com/CSS-Tricks/AnythingSlider/wiki).
