    Not to use the gps, but many gps apps have search capabilities built right into the app, like google maps to search for business that are near your position. So, yes, the gps will work, but the apps will not fully function. At least that is my understanding. I have the data plan, haven't tried to use the gps with out, but most of the gps apps either do searches or allow you to be tracked to you can let others know where you are.

    You'll find plenty of apps to keep you busy.

    You also need a data plan for the GPS software to download maps. Without a data plan, the GPS will work and show you lat / lon, but to see your progress on a map, you have to have a data plan.
