    Hey so I have the 2gb of Data Plan and I just wanted to know how much GPS would add, and also, does connecting to satellites cost extra?

    GPS is not an added cost. Unless you're referring to ATT navigator, which is a ripoff and costs like $10/month. The google navigation software is free. Is that what you meant?

    I think he was asking how much data is transferred while using GPS.

    Yah, I don't use AT&T navigation and I was basically wondering how much DATA GPS uses, or just in case if there was an extra fee

    GPS itself doesn't use data, but a GPS-enabled app might then pull in data for its own purposes.

    Example would be Google Maps, which takes the GPS info and then downloads map data to display. The GPS location fix info itself though doesn't involve downloading data. It's calculated from the satellite signals.

    Does this make sense?
