Usually there is a checkbox at the bottom of the selection box that says make this my default choice (or something like that). Are you checking that box? of course everytime Verizon or Google update their software, you will be prompted to select your new choice.
And then there is the uber fix! Google made it so that applications (even stock applications) can be disabled.
Open the app drawer.
Press the Menu button
Select "Manage Apps."
Select the “All” tab, and scroll down to Verizon Navigator
Tap on Verizon Navigator and then choose “Disable.”
If it says “Uninstall updates,” do that first and then disable.
You can do this for any of your bloatware you want to disable.
Now you won't be prompted for Verizon Navigator every time...
I pulled this from this article
on Droid Life...
