    So I've been reading around on the stack and some other sites, can you only use vzw navigator on verizon? I've heard 3rd party gps don't work that verizon has them locked so your forced to use their app and pay for it? Any of this true???

    That is correct. Only vz nav right now. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to use this feature. But I'm not holding my breath!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Not exactly true. Yes, Verizon does lock the internal GPS. However, you can purchase an external Bluetooth GPS receiver that will work with most third party navigation services. For example, I have the 8130 with Verizon and use an external Bluetooth GPS receiver (Navibe GB73) along with Wayfinder Navigator - works flawlessly.
