Default VZ Navigator & access to other GPS progs

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone...

I signed up for VZ Navigator tonight and got it running fine. Here's my question... Now that I have it activated, shouldn't I be able to run OTHER GPS programs, such as Nav4all?

When I run it, it says that no GPS is detected? Am I doing something wrong or will it just not work?

Thanks

it is a bit controlling, but when sprint came out with their GPS you *had* to use TeleNav to get it.
