    Banned
    I have an LG Arena with GPS but everytime I use it, it connetcs to the internet and gobbles up my credit (pay as you go)...

    I am off to paris next weekend and wanted tyo use it for getting round the streets but want to know if I have to use the net to use it?

    If it uses aGPS then it uses cell towers to find your location quicker (i think)

    just get a paris street map

    PAYG is so 2001 :?

    what network you on ?

    when you start the application it will use the mobile network to get your approximate location while the GPS is kicking in(can take a while)

    I can say without a shadow of a doubt, you need internet to download the maps in GPS. But make sure your phone is unlocked and you buy a local Sim Card when you get there.
