    There may be a simple explanation that I am over looking, but is it really necessary to have navigation work over wifi?

    Skennelly,

    Maybe for a plane, train or cruise ship just to follow your course? Dunno, not like you would need turn by turn for any of these :) But the better question about it does anyone use VZ Nav?

    Because you can get your directions in a non-service area, then go on your way.

    From what I read if we flash this we will lose our root ability. I think I'll wait just a little longer and see if this version can be rooted easily.

    To further riko's point: Some of us have gone in and removed or edited the DUN to get free 3G mobile hotspot. Will this update put the phone back to its original status and prevent us from using this trick after the update?

    Will Verizon charge us if we use the internet connection thru Bluetooth on this update? Or will it be free like when people use pdanet?

    Thanks!

    i'll wait for a rom with this. i hope they can fix the wifi tether (assuming that this gingerbread will prevent that like the dx did).

    I certainly don't know for sure, but my assumption would be that since this is an official OTA leak, you'll lose your free mobile hotspot just as you'll lose root.

    Agreed from what it sounds the phone will be returned to an unrooted state and anything that requires the phone to be rooted will be rendered useless or removed.
