    im about to make a 100km trip in germany where prices are 3euro/mb... so im a little concerned how much data it will consume... any idea anyone?

    if i load the map from wifi and shut down the phone... will it still have the map stored or do I have to keep the phone turned on all the time?

    Planning routes is done by google's servers, so you will use at least some data when planning your route. However, this should be minimal quantities of data (i'm guessing a few k).

    Map data should get cached, so if you plan the route while youre here, it shouldnt need to be reloaded when youre over there. You can also browse an area manually and this data should also be cached - useful if youre exploring a city on foot.

    And maybe try to cache the data via WiFi at your hotel or at an Internet cafe.
