    Why would we pay to use VZ Navigator As it requires a subscription when we could use google navigation free?

    I'm surprised they didn't pull google nav out and replace the default search with bing.

    Looks pretty much like a useless update and of course more bloatware to take up space.

    Nobody is sure if their will be a 2.2 update or not. I'm just not holding my breath, and this should fix problems that were introduced by the ZVB Update. I believer there is also a new radio included with this. However do not quote me on that.

    if this does not fix the issues brought up in vzb, then this phone will become a brand new doorstop. im getting a little fisty having to keep reinstalling apps after i reboot my phone. plus the 2.2, these little updates are not really that impressive. especially vz nav, they need to quick nickling and diming. but im used to it, when i had a blackberry, the same crappy push apps were sent as well.

    Verizon seems to always do this shit. Useless updates, nickle and diming, preloading crapware. etc...Its aggravating. We were told a while back that there would be one more update before 2.2 but that one update ZVB brought issues of its own so they now have to fix that before they can get 2.2 going.

    Well true but vz doesnt necessarly has to fix anything on this 2.1, programming wise, should be able to just jump 2.2 but again we are talking about verizon. But the great thing though is i dont trust any other network.

    Its not Verizon pushing to get the issues fixed its LG. LG pushes it to verizon, verizon adds their crap, verizon pushes it to google servers. servers push it to the phones.

    ankle connects to the thigh bone and ya da ya...(not towards you :)... just the updates seem ok until verizon adds crap such as city id. why pay 1.99 for area codes when we have a browser or many other free apps to do it for us, again with google maps, but maybe some dimwits will think that the apps are more powerful because they come from a more "official" souce such as a wireless carrier.

    plus correct me if im wrong but doesnt vznav not work correctly when the phone is out of cell coverage? Im not sure if google maps does the same thing or not. but still 9.99 to do the same thing another product can do for 0.00.....

    i was told a week before this update was pushed that froyo was coming, but they had to do one more smaller update first. So hopefully 2.2 is next.

    Yeah If I recall VZnav uses Cell towers for triangulation. Why not use the Real GPS for free then pay to use something sub-par.

    VZ Navigator uses cell towers to triangulate your location so if you have low to no signal you're SOL

    I'm still on VZ8 and the only way I will ever change is if I have to have VZC for a Froyo upgrade. Or i'll just wait until someone here puts out Froyo as an installable ROM and then i'll never need VZC.

    Is there any plan to build a ROM version on VZC with the bloatware removed, whether it's Velocity, Raptor or whatever? Is that even necessary? Would it be possible to just pull out anything that's a genuine improvement like the radio and flash those?

    Yeah, Just like with the vzb's radio you could pull it out and flash it separately. Im using my ally as a testing phone now so we shall see... Just waiting for the update notification

    So VZC breaks root capability? Good reason not to go back to stock then.
