    Hi Flandern, welcome to the N1 forum

    You don't have to be driving for GPS it to work, I've used it walking around.

    Yes, you need to have a data connection to use GPS.

    I think it would be good to point out that you don't need data connection to use GPS as long as you have downloaded offline maps with apps like maverick/mapdroyd. The Navigation app that came with the phone for directions will need a data connection. I have yet to find an app that can calculate route direction offline. any clue?

    You need to first turn ON the GPS from the power control widget on the homescreen. Opening Google Maps will use your data plan to download maps as your location changes. Google Maps will automatically detect if the GPS is on and therefore use it to pinpoint your location.

    Usually it's best to be outdoors for the GPS to communicate effectively with the satellites to locate you easily.

    Once Google Maps detected your location (after hitting Options button and selecting My Location) you can then use the app to give you precise directions to where you want to go.

    There are no free ones to be honest. Co pilot is very good, its like getting one of the cheaper sat navs on the market for half the price.

    Navigon is porting their Mobile Navigator 7 to Android. There is a 30 day trial version available in Europe (not the US yet). I believe that it's really a beta release at this point.

    The iPhone version of this application was one of the best selling programs in the iTunes store for a while. It's not cheap (around $70US), but it is very good.

    I think that if they dropped the price a bit, it would be a big seller on the Android Market.
