    Hi Guys

    I'm going away few days (Volcano permitting) and was just wondering if I use Google Maps outside of the UK will I need mobile internet.

    Can I use Google Maps with the GPS turned on and the mobile internet turned off?

    Any help would be great

    Nope, Gmaps doesn't cache the data, so you will need a live internet connection.

    You'll need to find a free Wifi spot, buy a local sim card, or get completely shafted by your operator.

    Gmaps uses a lot of data.

    Try AndNav or MapDroyd, they both offer storage of the maps to the SD card.
