I'm planning a trip overseas with my Storm (Verizon carrier). I'm going to Thailand and Japan. What is the best way to use it as a GPS? Does Google Maps work overseas and is that the best application to use as a GPS?
I don't know what the GPS has to do with the data plan, thought the GPS 'radio' just received its signal from satellite's. Why is it dependent on the data plan?
Regardless, I've been to Japan (with data) and Google Maps could not find my location. Could've been me not having something set right, like having GPS on at the time. Heading to Taiwan next month, will be trying again
*EDIT* Argh!! Opera Mini is a pain sometimes. Made an edit already, but opera tried to go to a URL instead. No data = no background/map images. But it will locate
