This problem has existed since the launch of the Pre Plus on Verizon Wireless in January 2010, and has persisted through continued (and delayed) web OS updates, including last evening's 1.4.5.

The saga of my efforts to get a straight answer from Verizon and their Mini True-inspired final answer after the break.

Why spend this amount when you can use your i OS device as a reliable road navigator?

All you need to do is to install an app called VZ Navigator.

My active efforts began in late May via a call and e-mail exchange with VZW's Executive Support team, and after no action for six weeks, I escalated in early July by copying VZW's CEO, Lowell C. That led to a few weeks of back-and-forth e-mails and conversations with two more Exec support staffers, finally leading to a meeting with Verizon Wireless's local Data Solutions Manager, David Besemer on July 28th. Besemer, and even (at his request) traded my Pre Plus for a brand-new one so that he could return mine to Palm "for testing." Throughout this time, I at least felt I was making some progress, however slow, to justify my extensive time and effort spent.

A few more weeks went by without any follow-up by VZW until a conference call on August 25th, led by yet VZW person, Bruce Simon. Simon repeatedly claimed that Google Location (a software-based option within web OS that reports data to Google, and that does not provide the speed, altitude, and similar information available from the hardware GPS) was "acceptable to other customers."
