Verizon Wireless VZ Navigator Editors' note: The review and ratings have been updated since the original publish date to reflect new features that have been added since the product's first release.
Verizon Navigator 4 also brings the addition of traffic capabilities, so you can see if there are any accidents or congestion your route around the affected area.
There are three options for traffic: Alerts Only, Navigation, or Don't Use Traffic.
The service is now integrated with Facebook®, allowing users to keep up with their friends, family and social networks by updating their Facebook statuses directly through VZ Navigator, with the option to include and share their locations.
Customers can also use Verizon Wireless’ Roadside Assistance service to send their locations to a dispatcher so assistance may reach them more quickly.
To be fair, you can send a similar message to an e-mail address but the SMS text option is more attractive if you're trying to catch up with acquaintances while out on the town.
