Maybe I will reinstall launcher pro and test to see if it's just an issue with their contacts widget. I had the option to choose vz nav or google maps the 1st time I tried to navigate to a contact's address. I chose google and told it to remember. If I go to Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/All and choose Google maps and clear it as default, then I have the choice again between vz nav or gmaps
So, on a new phone contacts > click pic of contact with address > shows VZ Nav even though no default is set.
To fix, go contacts > click NAME of contact with address > click address > choose Google Maps as default
Now, when you go phone contacts > click pic > it' shows the Maps icon
I take back what I said about it being built in, although it certainly seems like there is no choice but VZ Nav by default unless you poke around a bit.

Well glad you found a way, I so wish they would release another plain vanilla Android phone like the original Droid, but if they can add bloatware and snag extra money from folks they will...it's all about the $$$ not the customer!
Thanks for that AZD. On my new Galaxy SIII I found Settings/Application Manager/tab to All/VZNavigator Option was "Disable". After that I checked a random contact and the familiar blue Google Navigation icon had replaced the VZN one. I hope this will work for other VZ crapware, at least until someone figures out how to root this device and install custom ROM.Try going to settings/applications/manage applications/all then scroll down to and tap on vz navigator. See if you can tap "Clear Defaults" or if it says "no defaults set"
