Google maps uses data unless you download a part of the map and save it for offline use. You'd then have to turn data off on the phone.

The other alternative is to install a non-google maps/navigation app that stores the map data locally. I know there are a few but cannot recommend any. You can check the play store or search here for suggestions.
