The Moto G has Google Maps built into it. The app is free. There are many "free" apps for GPS however you will still need a data plan to use these apps. The apps are free, the data isn't

If you have to use a GPS app for your Android phone, I'd recommend just using the Google Maps app that's pre-installed unless you're used to using something different. It's definitely improved over the years. I use it a good amount if I'm unsure of where I'm going and it's really accurate. Keep in mind any GPS app on a phone is going to use data as well. Hope that helps answer your question :)

I love Waze. It's one the best for navigation and live traffic updates so you can avoid getting stuck. It's free. to download too.

I believe CoPilot is free and it's offline navigation. You will only have basic features and to upgrade is a one time $20 or so for all of North America. Worth every penny imo!

The Moto G has a dedicated GPS receiver which means you can download map data to the device and operate it as a standalone GPS without incurring any data charges. I've been using Sygic and Co-Pilot (paid versions) for more than two years on various other Android devices and recently on my Moto G and I've never paid a nickel for data.

Google Maps is a cloud-based mapping platform, there are no maps stored on the device itself. A data connection is needed in order to download and update map and navigational information. This is ideal for those who don't want to store map data on their device or if storage space is limited. Map data file sizes can be kept to a minimum by selecting only the regions required.

As for a free GPS app, I've used Navfree in the past with good results.
