Verizon today announced VZ Navigator, a new service that will provide directions and locations of nearby services to subscribers using aGPS enabled phones. When a user launches Navigator, the network and GPS satellites will determine his location. That data can then be used to locate nearby businesses such as restaurants or banks, and can also be used to provide turn by turn directions to a destination. The service is initially available on the newly launched Motorola V325; Verizon has not promised the application for additional handsets. Navigator will cost $10 for a month of unlimited use, or $3 for 24 hours. Sprint has already launched a similar service for most of their new handsets.

Shocked

I say what in the... ? I drop $500 on my a970, $300 on my 815, and they let this pompus 1XRTT, non-BT, VGA camera wannabe of a phone use the GPS first?

Vodaphone wants out, Japan is 3 years ahead, and even my techno-ILLiterate girlfriend knows VZW slowly bleeds the U.S. by the slow deployment of technology. Absolutely twisted.

I see .... more business for city wreckers ...

... as people crash their cars like demolition derby, trying to follow turn-by-turn directions off a 176 x 220 pixel screen. Razz
actually it would speak to you, IE, Turn left on Morse Rd in 2.3 miles. As well as show you on the screen. My father has one and it is very reasonable for those who doesnt want to pay 700+ dollars for a navigation system
...
hehe

But seriously, having your phone say your directions to you is a lot better than the current method of trying to read the directions that you printed off of mapquest at the same time you're driving!
