Hi Dversecottnmd

I'm sorry to hear your getting unwanted messages. I can help. Do you have place messaging set up on the VZ Navigator? If so please remove it. Here's a link to the VZ navigator site: http://products.verizonwireless.com/index.aspx?id=fnd_navigator

Please let me know if this helps.
Thank you

I get these periodically when using VZ Navigator on my Bionic as well. 

The last message I received was from 900080005003 and read "//VNAV_AND:VZ Navigator;Server update received;N;4086932-1334888300.7667-vnav_android-USA-NAVTEQ;47a5a5b27dffb8f9cd0f"

I went to the website and looked for place messages.  How, exactly, do you disable them?  I have looked on the site and cannot find how to stop it.

As much as I dislike Google Nav, I may start using that if I can't get VZ Nav to stop sending these in route update texts.

Why do you dislike Google Nav?

I agree, what about Google Navigation you dont like? It has all the feature that retail GPS have and more, and I love how Street View shows the destinations photo before you get to building to help you find correct location..

I just...don't.  I prefer the customization I can do in VZ Nav.  Additionally, using Google Nav is a lot like having someone sitting beside you reading from a map.  I much prefer to be told to "turn left in .5 miles," vs. "turn left now!"

It's just a preference.  Much as I prefer Coke to Pepsi, I just like VZ Nav better.

Everyone has their likes and dislikes but I use Google Navigation and I get notifications like you report...  It tells me how far until next turn just as you describe.

Oh well back to your issue have you tried removing the sim for a few minutes and place it back in and allow the roaming data to be updated to see if this helped with the error because it appears you are having issues connecting the the server that sends the navigation commands?
