    As Stiefler said no you don't need VZ Navigator and if anything it drain memory very quickly. However, BB maps is required for some 3rd party apps to work like Weatherbug and a few others.

    As far as I know, Weatherbug is the only program that needs BB maps.

    Poynt (or was it Viigo) requires BBMaps as well...
    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

    Poynt will give you the option of choosing either BB Maps or Gmaps.
