Do we know if the Xoom will have a stand alone Gps chip? Just in

If 3G is lost, then Google Maps is not an option. There are other Navigation apps though that you can use which store maps locally on the phone (tablet here), and therefore do not need a data connection. Those would work just fine with no 3G most likely. Some are paid, some not.

A few I saw doing a quick search in the new online market are:

Aura GPS Navigation


Good luck !
