I have a prepaid koodoo LG phone. I do not have a data plan, but the google map navigation feature still works anywhere. It is super handy for travelling, but i dont know if I am using up air time when this is in use.

Am I using up "air time" when I use this feature?? Normally, I cannot access the internet without having a data plan.

Hi Kent, If you haven't added a data booster, you can only use Google navigation while on WiFi... however it does buffer the route so it may seem like you are using data. :)
