    If you think the Google Maps navigation on your Droid is just too boring, Verizon has its own turn-by-turn software that adds 3D, yes, 3D, maps. The 3D maps are currently supported in only six cities--Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, and Kansas City, Mo.--but more cities will be added later on. Aside from 3D renderings of cities as you drive around, the app also includes important information like highway and exit signs.
    Verizon is offering the new VZ Navigator VX software for the Motorola Droid X, the HTC Droid Incredible, and the Samsung Fascinate. It's not free, though--it's either $9.99 a month, $4.99 a week, or $2.99 for one 24-hour day. However, Verizon claims the monthly charge buys you continuous map updates.

    I'll stick with Google, because it's free.

    I don't see why anyone would pay for this when you can get navigation for free.
