    After seeing the image of Google selling the unlocked version of the Nexus One, I'm intrigued to buy one. However, I'm wondering if Google navigation will work without internet as I don't plan on buying a data plan. If Google navigation does work, can you tell me what features, if any, are lacking because of the loss of internet.

    I understand that this cannot answered by a person without a Nexus One, since its not released yet, but does anyone with a Motorola Milestone know the answer?

    Thanks!

    Data is needed to download map data on the fly. There are no preloaded maps plain and simple.

    CoPilot Live works pretty well, it's 35 on the market, but can be found elsewhere

    The google tutorial video about google navigation states that pictures and directions will be cached in case you loose reception along the way
