Droid Does 3D Navigation with VZ Navigator VX
Verizon rolled out an updated version of their navigation service, overhauling it with 3D views and enhanced 3D City Models. Initially available in six markets (Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Mo., New York, and Washington D.C), the app brings realistic looking images of highway and exit signs among other details. Like Google Maps Navigation, the app doesn’t keep static copies of maps loaded on the phone, pulling them from the cloud as needed. This way you get the most up-to-date maps and points of interest available at that moment.
VZ Navigator VX can be found in the Android Market for $9.99 a month for unlimited access, but also comes with other options. Just traveling for a few days and need help in the big city? You’ll be happy to know there are $4.99/ weekly usage and $2.99/24-hour usage options available as well! The app is currently only offered on select phones (DROID X, Samsung Fascinate, and DROID Incredible) but will be landing on new devices over the course of the year.
