You don't need a data plan to sync your phone with your car for features like Bluetooth, etc. Those features are built into the phone. I would highly suggest looking in your trucks owners manual and it will most likely tell you how to set up bluetooth and everything else you need.

Hello Darlene!

The only thing data will be useful for, is getting a GPS with Google maps. Though, you could buy an application (if you have a smart phone) as TomTom or Navigon so you can use GPS without a data plan.

I'd recommend Co-Pilot Live. It's only $15 and you get Canada/US maps for that price.
