Thread: GPS and NO data plan

  1. #1
    Default GPS and NO data plan
    If I have a jailbroken iPhone 3G, is it possible to have the GPS function work with some sort of map (perferably google maps) without a data plan? I'm under the impression that the phone does have an independent GPS chip but I'm not sure if I can download maps on it and have it work without a data plan.

    It doesn't require data,but without data you are very limited in what you can do with the GPS.You can download google maps but to get the actual map you have to download using data/wifi.

    so it would work just fine if I download some kind of a map package or google maps and put it on the iphone using a PC connection?

    Check out xGPS (Cydia). It's FREE and even works without a SIM

    They have a development web-site and map downloader app for PC. Then copy to PC... Bingo
