    So any word on whether or not I'll be able to get this on the XV6900? I use VZ Navigator on my current phone and I would hate to lose it, unless I can use a free/alternative program.

    LAS VEGAS and BASKING RIDGE, NJ — From CTIA WIRELESS 2008, Verizon Wireless, the owner and operator of the nation’s most reliable wireless voice and data network, and Networks In Motion (NIM), the award-winning wireless navigation and hyper-local search company, announced today that the newest version of VZ Navigator(SM) will be available in April on select consumer phones and Windows Mobile devices. With the new VZ Navigator (Version 4), customers in 75 cities from coast to coast will be able to access traffic incidents, traffic updates and find detours around traffic congestion and accidents; more cities are expected to be added in the coming year. In addition, VZ Navigator will offer 3D perspective view, a movie and events finder, weather reports and forecasts, and gas prices at nearby gas stations.

    Powered by Networks In Motion, Verizon Wireless’ VZ Navigator service is a location-based service (LBS) application that utilizes GPS technology and real-time information feeds. When the new version launches in April, customers in 75 cities will be able to access the new traffic integration feature. In these markets, routes will be calculated using both historical and real-time reported traffic information – the historical information will allow customers to see on average whether the traffic is impacted by traffic lights, heavy traffic or school zones. VZ Navigator’s historical data covers over 750,000 miles of roads in 48 states across the nation, making travel time estimates more accurate. The incident and flow information will tell customers how traffic is flowing, and will include details about reported accidents, disabled vehicles and congestion. NIM’s Traffic Tracking Center continually monitors conditions along the customers’ routes, sending proactive alerts to drivers about conditions ahead of them on their chosen routes. Detour options allow for comparison of ETA and conditions, before selecting a new route. Traffic information is powered by NAVTEQ Traffic.

    Lee Daniels, vice president of consumer product development for Verizon Wireless, said, “Real-time reported traffic information and more allows our customers to truly transform their wireless phones into powerful navigation systems, at a fraction of the cost of other GPS devices. When Networks In Motion adds additional functionality to our VZ Navigator service, it enhances our customers’ overall wireless experiences.”

    Other new features customers can expect to see on VZ Navigator (Version 4) include:

    Local Movies and Events – Customers can now search for show times, critics’ ratings and other details for movies, concerts, plays, sporting events and other social events based on the physical location of their phones.
    3D Perspective View – Enhances navigation by displaying maps from angles customers would see through car windshields, making it easier to visualize turn-by-turn directions.
    Gas Finder – Provides customers with information on the location of gas stations close to their physical location and even provides gas prices at many gas stations in the area. Once a customer selects a station, VZ Navigator can also provide turn-by-turn directions to the selected gas station.
    Weather – Provides current weather conditions and forecasts based on the physical location of their phones without manually inputting an address.
    Pricing
    The newest version of VZ Navigator (Version 4) will be available next month for $9.99 for unlimited monthly access or $2.99 for one-day use on select Get It Now®-enabled phones in the Get Going section under Travel & Guides or Featured Apps. In addition, VZ Navigator (Version 4) will also be available on select Windows Mobile devices. Airtime or megabyte charges and specific terms of use apply when browsing, downloading and using the application. Traffic integration is only available in certain areas. Verizon Wireless customers who currently have a subscription to VZ Navigator can get a free upgrade by simply selecting Options from the main screen of VZ Navigator then selecting Check for Updates. For more information on VZ Navigator, visit www.verizonwireless.com/vznavigator.

    why the hell would you post that after someone else already posted a link. i'm not gonna bother reading through it but at least post changes (noteworthy) if any instead of some information we've already seen.

    I think MatthewC1 (who happens to have a pink daughter, if you read his list of phones) was replying to 'thefastest' (Justin) (an obvious newbie with two posts), getting him uptodate on the latest.

    I was glad he posted, it was a nice read and saved me the trouble of following a link to a news source that would want to put a cookie on my computer, which I would have to deny and then wonder if I would ever get to see the article. Sure, MatthewC1 could have attenuated the stuff at the bottom, but it was probably easier for him to copy and paste.

    I keep checking if my Navigator (version 3) is uptodate, and as of five minutes ago, it was. Meaning Version 4 is not out yet.

    I hope someone adds to this thread as soon as they get Version 4 without fear that someone else who already read about it won't bite their head off.

    i am obviously new here. correct me if i'm wrong, but the long post was the original press release, which i said i have already seen (as as everyone else as of april 1st). I was simply asking if anyone had any newer information than was mentioned during the release.

    on another note, referring to Lenagainster, when there is a major update, like a full version rev, doesn't the internal VZnavigator update check not catch it? I recall when they updated from version 2 to 3, my vznavigator said was up to date, but there was a new download available in the get it now section for version 3. that lead me to believe that the "Check for updates" option checked to see if there was an update for version 3, not a major update on a new rev.

    That might only be for feature phones and not smartphones. I know VCAST music doesn't charge you data when used on a Moto Q phone.

    VZNav will be available on the 6900 later this year but probably not at launch.
