    Now are you just running VZ Navigator or can you run 3rd party apps on their own without VZN?

    Couple of questions:

    1) Are you running VZN in the background while accessing Google maps?

    2) In Google maps are you certain that it is using the internal GPS and not using location interpolation from the cell towers?

    I so wish they would let us use 3rd party with our gps. That would be so handy.

    i tried it
    i have vz nav
    i dl google maps and opened it on its own.
    it gave my location to 1700 meters looked like a mile off of where i was.
    i dont know if that was a tower or what.

    yea that sounds like tower interpolation (or triangulation) to me.
