    Hi. I am a newbie to the group. I live in the mtns.of NC and am so glad that i found this site. I have the droidx by motorola and am having problems with the navigation. Some one posted the same problem in the droidx tech issues, but I never read a resolution. The phone talks when I enter my destination and then the thing stops talking, even if I make a wrong turn. I even took it to Verizon and they did not know what to do to fix it. Any suggestions. Thanks Mdente

    Welcome! Sorry you are having issues with your X. Not sure this is the issue but

    Make sure the location and security settings are correct. I have both wireless and GPS checked. Make sure the mute button is not checked.

    No stupid questions. I have a Droid so my experience may be different. Open nav, tap map (upper right), in maps tap menu, the speaker icon should not have an X to the right. then check the volume.

    I know this works in your area. Our son lives in the Charlotte area and I use mine every visit.

    Yes. Is that off or on?
