I do not believe it to be navigationally significant in our lifetimes.
As I understand it the 3-body problem is how will 3 gravitational bodies interact. As I understand it, that problem can't be solved analyitically, only thru interative methods where errors slowly accumulated. The closer the bodies the harder it becomes.
As I understand it the solar system is spread out enough to ignore the effects over the short and medium term. Over the long and incredibly long term the iterative methods requires you to remeasure current location and speed to zero out the accumulating error.
Of course I could be completely wrong.
