VZ Navigator question.......
When I am on a trip and im using Vz nav, all of a sudden I receive a call which interupts the nav screeen and I get lost because im in the middle of a trip. Is there a way to disable receiving phone calls while using vz navigator. Or is there another program that will allow me to disable calls while using a nav app.
Hope I was good enough at explaining."EVOlve"

No way to do this. If you turn off the radio for the phone, you loose your data connection which VZNav depends on for the map routing. The best option is to get the Garmin maps that are loaded on the media card. They don't depend on the data connection for map drawing.

on the curve there is an option called , Do Not Disturb that does what you are asking. if you set tht option to yes, then all calls will be sent to VM without ringing through.
i remember someone asking about this with the storm and i can't recall if that model has this feture.

Hi, I recently went on a road trip using the vzw navigator. I got a call while i was listening to directions, I answered and thought that I'd lost the connection, I ended the call and just pressed the navi icon and was still in sync. I continued where i left off. Didn't really miss a beat.
Hope this was helpful.

you can report the post if you feel it is against forum rules. i agree that it could have been worded a little better, lol.
that feature of the storm sucks to those who need it.
i'd find it annoying as well bc i use the Nav all the time!

Worded a little better? How it is relevant to the discussion in any words?
And how is it, as you say "that feature of the storm sucks to those who need it" if the same problem exists on your 8830? Would that be a "suck" feature for both??

I had the VZ Nav on my previous phone (LGVX9400) and i just de-activated it for my storm. Google Maps works well enough for me, since i don't need turn by turn direction to get where i'm going usually.
Hope this helps...

i dont have VZNav to try it out, but cant you just take the call and tab back into the navigator? i used it for a few weeks and am pretty sure i was able to do it. aside from that.. i gotta be honest, if you get lost that quickly, you should either get a standalone GPS or just consider pulling over when you get a phone call.."I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best."

Frankly, it is not good to talk on cell phone while driving anyway. I have seen enough people who cannot steer while talking on the phone to make me think they should ban using cell phone while you are driving. It is not safe to yourself and to the other people around you on the road.
If you think the call might be important, just pull over and answer the phone. You don't need VZ Nav while you are parking on the side of the road.

i don't think that was the point of this thread, talking and driving (while navigating). the point is when the nav is on and a call comes through....even when you DON'T answer it....it stops the GPS Nav the whole time it is ringing. it's jsut as dangerous funbling around trying to delcine the call.
Most BBs have a feature that sends calls directly to Vm, called Do Not Disturb, which allows for uninterrupted GPS Navigation.

It takes one finger to push ignore. If you are using VZNav safely, it should be in a spot where you can see it and the road.
There really is no difference to look at the phone to push ignore and to look at the phone for directions.-When the rich wage war, it's the poor who die.
