Default VZ Navigator 5.0 Announced by Verizon

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.vzw.com/news/2010/02/pr2010-02-01.html' target='_blank'>http://news.vzw.com/news/2010/02/pr2010-02-01.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Verizon Wireless, provider of the nation's largest and most reliable 3G network, today announced the launch of VZ Navigator&reg; 5.0, the newest version of its award-winning map, navigation and local search service, which helps users find their way around town. Powered by TeleCommunication Systems, Verizon Wireless' VZ Navigator is a GPS-enabled service that transforms a wireless smartphone or handset into an all-in-one powerful navigation and communication device, enabling customers to find useful information and discover new places and destinations."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1265202528.usr7.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>$9.99 a month (or $2.99 a day) will give you access to, well, something Google is giving away for free. But those who don't have an android phone to switch into for navigation may appreciate big V's offering. It runs on Win Mo (hence this post) and also on blackberry. The attractive part may be the traffic updates that are provided by the network in response to what actual users are experiencing. So heavy commuters who are perpetually late (But have enough time to power up a GPS for a route they know by heart) may be interested.</p>

For $9.99 a month, you could get a dedicated device that'll work when there's 1G or no coverage for less than what it costs in a year.

Or you can get Garmin Mobile XT for WinMo phones for 99.99.
