That makes sense! - NOT!!!

Go ahead and enable the ability to add VZNavigator to your account today, but "oh, well you have to wait until later before your device can run it".

Good work Verizon!

I think this is pretty much it:
• Customers wishing to add functionality such as A2DP (Stereo Bluetooth) support to wirelessly listen to music through the included Media Player (requires optional Bluetooth Stereo Headset, purchased separately).
• Customers wishing to add VZ NavigatorTM functionality to their device, including audible, turn-by-turn directions, and more (additional charges required, visit www.vznavigator.com for details).
