How do I prevent VZ Navigator from automatically starting?

Every time I plug my phone into the car mount, VZ Navigator starts up automatically. I do not want to use VZ Navigator every time I get in my car. I prefer to select what app to run from the default car screen and I prefer to use the Android Navigator. How do I stop VZ Navigator from starting automatically? It's bad enough that I cannot remove it from my phone.

Do you have ICS or above operating system?  If so, you can disable it by going to Manage Apps > All > VZ Navigator.  Force Stop, then Disable (if you don't see the Disable button to the right of Force Stop, then Uninstall Updates first).  The app will still be viewable under Manage Apps should you want to re-enable it, but it won't appear in your app drawer and shouldn't pop up when you use your car mount.

Try this: from the Home screen, do Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications. Tap All, wait for the list to populate, then scroll down to VZ Navigator and tap it. Check the Launch by default section and see if there are any default actions set. If there are, tap Clear defaults.

This is the sequence on my Stratosphere; yours may look a little different. I don't know that this will do the trick, but it might be worth a shot.
