Verizon Wireless today announced VZ Navigator VX - the latest version of the their award-winning navigation service for select Android smartphones, including the Droid X, Droid Incredible and Samsung Fascinate. What makes it unique is that is provides customers with 3D navigation views using enhanced 3D city models and true-to-life images of highway and exit signs.
The 3D city and road views, powered by TeleCommunication Systems, add dimension to the turn-by-turn directions VZ Navigator VX offers. Other enhancements in the newest version include "real" signs and road views, satellite maps and day/night modes among other features.
The 3D capabilities will only be available in six cities to start: Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Mo., New York, and Washington D.C., with more cities being added in 2011.
The VZ Navigator VX app can be downloaded from the Android Market. Service charges are as follows:
>> $9.99 a month for unlimited access,
>> $4.99 for a weekly usage
>> $2.99 for a one-day/24-hour use.
It will be interesting to see how well received this 3D navigation concept is and if so, will Verizon make it available for other smartphones that they carry?
