    I am pretty much sure you have post this somewhere and I am sorry if I double this.
    32GB 3G ATT gps turn by turn navigation can work without data plan?
    Am I right or not and how accurate this will work without data in case I travel in US?

    Thank you.....!

    No data plan required for the GPS receiver to work.

    Depending which GPS app you are using you may need to be connect WiFi for it to download the map. In other words you would have a nice blue dot in the middle of a blank screen.

    However there are several GPS app's that download the maps so you do not have to be connected to anything to use them.

    I use Nav Free USA which is free.

    GPS doesn't use 3G for location finding, so it will be as accurate as any GPS device without external antenna.
