VZ Navigator Version 5

VZ Navigator is an app that is voice-enabled and solid available from earlier few years. Its new version 5.0 has got a pristine interface that has enhanced POI Search in addition to   the latest multi-threaded design, which allows the user to do multi-tasking at a time. It almost gives you a luxurious experience in performing things solidly. The price of it i.e. $9.99 for each month may look little higher compared to similar GPS options which are available at free of cost like Maps Navigation of Google and Ovi Maps from Nokia.

The price of the app is $2.99 for one day and come around $9.99 for each month. This may add up and comes around $240 after two years. A new voice feature known as ‘Say It’ is added which allows verbal searches while travelling for destinations. Its multi-threaded design gives quick route navigation. Speed updates and location can be sent to the service of traffic reporting that filters them and sent to other customers, thus improving the traffic. Notification graphically regarding traffic circles, tunnels, U-turns, and toll plazas are also offered by the app. Facebook is also integrated by this 5.0 version of VZ Navigator, where your location can be shared.  Features like Roadside assistance and sending the GPS location in need to an emergency answerer.

The home screen in the app is really a great improvement. The app also gives info regarding the current location in which you are present. Local weather info will also be displayed along with a fore-cast of three days. It also displays local events happening nearby, movies along with star ratings, gas prices nearby.  Below this info of real time, there are 3 icons like Share, Find and Navigate along with menu function and Say It keys.  While programming the route, street addresses or nearby landmarks can be keyed in. POI Searches ran quickly and were simple, but those ads springing up in between, that too in dazzling yellow color are seriously a gripe.  Sub categories are also present that help in finding restaurants and other personal services like shipping, mailing and laundry services etc. These services are not found to be correct always.

On road performance of Navigator 5.0 is rocking. The look of fonts and map graphics is very sharp on 800 x 480 pixels, high resolution screen of enV touch screen.  Names of the current street and coming up streets are displayed along with the remaining estimated distance on the screen. If there are two turns coming successively, 2 turn arrows are displayed by the app. The info regarding traffic delay can be obtained on the screen at the tool bar in the bottom.
