    We'll be in Canada for 3 weeks (Niagara Falls to Newfoundland) and I wonder if it's cost-effective to be able to use (or IF I can use it) VZ Navigator in those areas IF I NEED IT.

    I know I need to turn the BB off for most of the time we're there, but I'd like guidance in how to use the features if/when I need them.

    I have Verizon.
    Thanks.

    You probably need a good estimate of how much data Navigator will use since it might otherwise provide you with a shocking bill.

    You might check into the Global data/phone plan. While in Europe I used about 13,000kb of data over three weeks. If I had not had the Global plan I would have paid over $350.00 for data. The Global plan is $65 (or 69) for a month and it replaces your BIS (so you get a refund of that cost)

    We have a global VZNav for $19.99/month and that includes data usage in canada.

    Yup and the only difference between the global VZNav and regular is the global does not give you audible turn by turn directions.

    Another option is an offline GPS solution like GPSLogger. A far cry from the information you get from VZNav (no maps, no turn-by-turn) but it gives you a good way know if you're getting closer to your hotel which may be enough. Since I tend to walk most places when on holiday this can really save on the data services costs.
