Default Do you need data plan for GPS to work?

Got my Behold II 2 weeks back but I do not have data plan. Slowly exploring my 1st antroid phone and enjoying.

I tried to use GPS but it won't work; it says, it's not available.

Do I need data plan for it to work? Just wondering.

Short answer is yes with google maps you need data plan or I guess you could use wifi but not really on the go.

Yes you can. There are navsat programs available on the market which save the maps onto your SD card such as CoPilot and Igo.

The pre-loaded navsat app on the Behold II does charge a monthly fee.

On a related note, you can download maps to your fone's memory. While not GPS,
they do help with orientation if you are not lost and simply need some assistance
locating a particular street or town.

I think you can use telenav without a data plan but there is a $9.99 a month fee.
