No Way to Update Location Status on FaceBook via VZ Navigator on Droid X?!!

I just upgraded to a Droid X from an HTC Imagio and have a question regarding the VZ Navigator software on the Droid X. On my Imagio, the VZ Navigator had an option to update your location status on FaceBook so that after you arrived at your destination, you could post the address where you were on your FaceBook page. I cannot find any such option in the VZ Navigator software I installed on my Droid X (yes, it was specifically listed as being only for the Droid X!); I can only find the option to share your location with someone else by sending it to their e-mail address. Am I missing something here? Is that just not possible on the Droid X? I liked to do that as I drive a tractor-trailer for a living and my family members on FaceBook could see where I was most of the time!

 

Please correct me if I am wrong!

I was wondering if you have looked at Google Latitude (preloaded on the Droid X - App name is 'Latitude') This will give your family more real time updates on where you are located, instead of having to wait for you to update your facebook page. You can control which people have access to your information.

 

My dad drove truck for a living for 27 years, and retired about 9 years ago, so I know what its like for your family to wonder where you at at different times.

 

I know that this doesn't answer your question, but just wanted to let you know that there are alternatives to help solve your problem.

 

Have a good day, and bless you for helping our country move goods to where they need to be. Be safe out there.

Currently, this feature of VZ Navigator is only available in versions 5.0 and higher. The version available for the Droid X is only 4.7.0.255.

***I would as curtterp recommended try the Google Latitude option as a great alternative to share locations with friends and family members.

I can't believe that my HTC Imagio Windows Mobile 6.5 phone ( a phone that's been out for, probably, at least a year and has a nearly dead operating system on it!) had a newer version of VZ Navigator available for it than my Droid X -{word filter avoidance}
?!!

Because Windows Mobile has been around longer than Android... so it has a headstart on development, and is a more mature app.

 

You will find a lot of apps that have iPhone and Windows Mobile equivelants, that the other two will have more features than the Android version. A lot of developers have been doing iPhone for years, and some of them have only been doing Android for less than 2 years....

 

but with more people buying Android phones, and with Android continueing to grab more marketshare, you will see a shift in development companies and developers start with Android, so the Android version will be the more mature app.

 

WIth WIndows totally revamping their operating system totally with Windows Mobile 7, some developers will be thinking long and hard about learning a new way to program, so they might not do Windows Mobile anymore.... The big boys will still do it, but not as many smaller/single developers will continue with it.
