I have it installed but can't seem to get it to locate my Storm via the GPS function.
I don't even have VZ Navigator installed so I doubt that has anything to do with your problem. I do have Blackberry Maps installed though.
Where seems VERY slow the first time it does anything (GPS locate, launch new widget, etc.), so you might give it more time?
But perhaps more importantly, I've found that the Storm GPS is fundamentally useless indoors (as are most GPS chips).
If you're inside, step outside. Outdoors, the Storm chip seems to find satellites impressively quickly!
Edit: Also, of course, make sure you have location based services turned on in Options
