    Does the dx have Google maps and navigation pre loaded or do you have to get from the market. Or do you have to use vz navigater.

    It should be loaded and it's Free in the market if it's not.

    You can, but it's 10 bucks a month and not as good as Google's.:rolleyes:

    GMaps/Nav is much better than VZNav. I removed VZNav from my phone as soon as I rooted haha

    You can also get copilot US for $5 in the market if you drive in areas without 3G coverage (maps are downloaded to your SD card so you don't need a data connection like you do w google or vznav). It's not as good as google nav but it's handy to have if you find yourself in the boonies.

    I prefer VZ Navigator. Google Nav doesn't show you how far you have left in the total trip, which really annoyed me. You have to hit a seperate screen to get the info, and I use it mostly on my motorcycle so playing around with the phone while riding is a hassle.
