    There is a piece of software written by a couple of guys on these forums called blackstar that will allow you access to the GPS on your handheld with no data. There is a thread in the GPS forum on it. This will let you see coordinates and speed etc. If you are looking for something with maps and navigation I'd recommend getting a data plan cause the maps suck up lots of kb when downloading (i.e. Google maps or amaze)

    If you have a data plan, Google maps will give you an estimated location without using your GPS. If you don't have it enabled.

    I am going to try blackstar.
