Verizon offering free 30 day trial of VZ Navigator
Those using Android handsets get free turn-by-turn directions from Google Maps. That makes it hard for a fee based navigational service like VZ Navigator to grab Android users. In an attempt to score some new business from those totin' the green robot, the carrier is offering a free 30 day trial to VZ Navigator. You must be a new VZ Navigator user to get the free trial which can be downloaded from the VCast app store found on your Android phone.

The recently introduced enhanced version of the software, called VZ Navigator VX, is available for the HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola DROID X, Samsung Fascinate, Samsung DROID Charge, HTC Droid Incredible 2 and the HTC ThunderBolt. Some of the new features of VZ Navigator VX include Smart Routes which takes real time traffic into consideration when routing your trip. Traffic is updated every 60 seconds, and the software plans a detour if necessary. Turn-by-turn directions are spoken to you and work even while other apps are open. Road signs look realistic and the view of the road is accurate so that you don't have to worry about last second lane changes. You can use Place Messaging or Facebook to share your current location or the whereabouts of a meeting.

When you select VZ Navigator from the VCast app, chose the 30 day option and your free trial will start. At the end of the trial period, you will receive a prompt to start a paying subscription, but you won't automatically be signed up.
