I have used the VZ NAV feature and I am absolutely impressed. Verizon has new premium plan that has VZNAV and unlimited txting in it, but unfortunately I have found out that they cannot apply this plan to the Blackberry. Not sure why, but I dont think they (VZW) classify the BB as a phone; I think they classify as handheld device. In any event, they cannot apply the plan, but I was able to configure the voice plan and data plan, and include the VZNAV and the txt package for the same price I was paying before. The math is crazy but it worked out. I work for a company that gets pretty good discounts on VZW service so I really lucked out. But, anyway, the VZNAV worked awesome. I think it gives turn by turn directions just as good as a Garmin, which my bother has.
