    I'm getting the Sprint Hero on Oct. 11th, so I'm reading the Sprint Hero User Guide. I'm going to only manage my PIM data thru a hosted Exchange server and planning on turning off all PIM syncing with Goggle. In the manual, under Settings -> Data Synchronization ->Goggle I see the following options:

    1. Background Data
    2. Auto-sync
    3. Gmail
    4. Calendar
    5. Contacts

    I know I need to uncheck Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts, but I don't know what to do with the other two options.

    Here's my questions:
    1. What is the Background data and Auto-sync options used for?
    2. Can I leave them on?
    3. If I turn them off, will it affect the operations of the other Goggle applications like Goggle Maps?

    Here's the link to the Sprint Hero User Guide:
