If you have a location-based application on your BlackBerry smartphone that provides driving directions, the BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 is designed to announce these driving directions to you.

To enable voice prompts using the BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605, the BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 must be

  • Paired and connected using a Bluetooth® connection to a BlackBerry smartphone that has a third-party mapping application installed
  • Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking must be enabled.

For instructions on how to pair and connect the BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 with a BlackBerry smartphone, please refer to the product documentation located at www.blackberry.com/support.

In order to hear voice prompts, the location-based mapping software must support voice prompts.

Note: BlackBerry® Maps does not support voice prompts.

 

OK i read this already and it didnt answer my question, I have verizon navigator, is it not a 3rd party mapping app?

GPS is enabled, its not blackberry maps.  Verizon navigator has voice prompts, meaning it talks to me.

Am I missing something that isnt already in these instructions?

Acutally, you didn't state above what you had read or done. (My mind reading skillz are slow on Monday :smileyhappy:  )

We're just trying to help here... helping us know what you have done in advance certainly cuts down on the clutter in these threads.

Actually, Verizon Navigator is a third party application. Is not part the native RIM Operating System (say, like the clock, blackberry maps andthe browser). 

 

So, you said you'd read that document, but have you done what it instructs?

1. Have you paired the VM to your BlackBerry?

2. Is your BlackBerry > Options > GPS set to Location ON?

3. Does Verizon Navigator work ok to navigate and voice announce on the device?

 

All that is needed then is the pairing of the devices. You'll hear the voice over the Visor Mount. 

 

If you want the voice assist over the auto speakers too, you'll need to follow the directions to set the VM to the proper FM channel.

Re: blackberry visor speakerphone and verizon navigator

OK, cool... so you are getting calls through the VM 605. Good.

 

I have not used Verizon Navigator in four months, so I am thinking... hard. Is there a setting in the VZNav options for audio to bluetooth or earpiece? Something like that?

 

I just can't remember offhand. There could be.

Re: blackberry visor speakerphone and verizon navigator

I have been all over the navigator menus, but I cant seem to find anything to cahnge the speaker output.  The navigator wont even play through a headset which I find odd.

Re: blackberry visor speakerphone and verizon navigator

Hmm... I could be wrong, but I am almost certain that VZNav played over my BT headset.

 

I know ATT Nav does as well (same as TeleNav).

Re: blackberry visor speakerphone and verizon navigator

I emailed verizon and the short answer is that Verizon Navigator will not play through anything other than the speaker on your phone.

Re: blackberry visor speakerphone and verizon navigator

I disagree with verizon..

My VZNavigator plays through my car speakers when connected through bluetooth..which is unfortunate when listening to music as well.
