Get Started With Navigation

Use the following information to install, set up, and start navigating with the Navigation mobile app by Verizon Connect.

Prerequisites

  • You need a username and password to use Navigation. If you don’t have them, contact your supervisor.
  • The maps used in Navigation can be saved to your device so that you can get directions even when you are offline. See Onboard vs. Offboard Maps in Navigation Apps for more information.
    Because the map data sets are large, you’ll need to connect your device to a Wi-Fi network to complete the download. Depending on your connection speed and the number of data sets required, the download process can take anywhere from 10 minutes to several hours to complete. A Wi-Fi connection is not required when you use offboard maps.

Install the App

See Supported Devices for Navigation for more information.

Log In

  1. Open the Navigation app on your device.
  2. On the login page, type your username and password.
  3. Tap Log In.

See Log In and Out of Navigation for more information.

Download Map Data (Optional)

If you want to use onboard maps, so that you can get directions even when you are offline, you need to download the map data for your region along with any supporting data for road network, junction views and signage (USA regions) and cities and borders (world regions).

  1. Tap to dismiss the map data download message. If you are on the main Navigation page, tap the Menu icon navge_menu_icon.zoom50.png > Map Data.
  2. On the All Maps tab, find the map data you need in the list.
  3. To download the data, tap the Download icon for each data set you need. Depending on your location and vehicles you may need more than one data set. For example, for large trucks based in Virginia, be sure to download the USA East, USA Enhanced (contains truck data), and USA Signage.

Configure Settings
