    You know GPS uses a satellite right, not the internet. Assisted GPS uses … You know GPS uses a satellite right, not the internet. Assisted GPS uses the cell towers to get your location and doesn't use the internet either.



    As dcx says.

    Uses contact with a number of GPS Satellites to find you.
    All free.

    GPRS is a different thing.

    But GPS when built in to phone is free.

    Just check what navigation software you are using. My phone has a couple of options, one of which is Google maps based. Whilst the navigation works fine, it does 'stream' the maps as you move around, so that DOES use your internet allowance.
