What's New in Version 126.96.36.199
In this release, we added the ability to view Favorites as a layer on the map, provided shortcuts for coffee and parking from the arrival screen, improved the Share feature, plus other UI enhancements.
I used Google Maps, Garmin and Tomtom, and VZ Nav is my favorite. Audible direction is very accurate, concise and prompt and you can focus on the road ahead and barely need to check the screen.
That being said, two small problems prevents me to give it 5 stars. One is that more than once it cannot find my exact location and refuse to start navigation, workaround being restart the iPhone, probably due to insufficient memory in my 8G iPhone 4; the other is that it doesn't play we'll with the USB port in my car: as soon as I plug in iPhone the audio direction stops working and won't resume even after I unplug the phone from the car. The workaround in this case is to stop the current trip and start a new one, quite infeasible if you are driving a long trip along highways coz battery drains really fast during navigation, but I guess using a charger instead of the USB port should cure this problem too.
This app has several major deficiencies. First, it is extremely inaccurate. With this app, if you do not know where you're going, you probably won't get there. Additionally, searching for a place frequently will not bring up places that have been there for years, for example, restaurants and shopping malls. There is no way to easily see an overview of the route that you have already started. It is impossible to look ahead at the whole route after starting it. Another issue, is that this app tends to take you on extremely bizarre routes, not direct drives but wraps you around blocks. I use Apple maps simultaneously with this Verizon app to compare the two; almost never does the Verizon app prove to be more accurate than Apple maps.
Love this app!
Great for all navigation. I love the two prompts...get ready to turn...turn on...etc. Very slow to update to the next turn in the city, presumably because of the buildings, which can cause you to miss your turn and traffic delays are nerve wrecking at these times. Overall though, a great app. I've used it in five cities (Atlanta, DC, Denver, Houston, and New Orleans) and while traveling the open road. Updating was the worst in DC for sure. But, I wouldn't do without it otherwise.
