Verizon users can now access a new navigation feature through their phones, as the nation’s largest mobile carrier has launched VZ Navigator VX. This new navigation service offers not just standard mapping and navigation services, it also offers other features to improve navigation. “Smart Routes” with real-time route updates (updating every 60 seconds) will offer detours and notifying of upcoming traffic. This service also offers turn by turn voice directions, that will also work while the app is running in the background. The app also claims to offer real road signs and road views, so users will know of things like upcoming lane changes, which will help with the app’s navigation services. As well, users can share their location with their Facebook friends as well as users of My Place. VZ Navigator VX is available now for Verizon users, with a 30 day trial available, and the service is available for $9.99/month. VZ Navigator VX can be downloaded by visiting this website, or by scanning this QR code below.
