Holiday and Google Maps

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.
