I found a question like this on stackoverflow.com, I put that code in Navigation.php but not work. Anyone?

What prevents you from just filter your collection by adding category filter?

$yourProductCollection = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');
// ->addAtributeToSelect(... your custom needs
// ->addAtributeToFilter(... your custom needs
$category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($categoryId);
$yourProductCollection->addCategoryFilter($category);

? And render your product collection in your custom template ?
