    Hi folks. Just bought a Blackberry Z10 phone last night and will get it delivered Wednesday hopefully. My prior phone, a Nokia N9 did not consume data when utilizing the GPS navigation feature. Was wondering if anyone can confirm if the Blackberry Z10 requires a constant data connection when using gps navigation? I have a limited monthly data allotment. Thanks much!

    Using the built in BB Maps, it does use data. In my test it used about 25MB an hour.
    Alternatively, you can get one of several apps in BB World that use offline maps. This only uses GPS so no data is consumed. For offline maps I use Navigator, but there are a few others that the BlackBerry community recommends as well.
