    GPS Navigation must require an internet connection?

    I wonder if it is correct that the GPS navigation on N1 must require an internet connection in order to work properly.

    For example, if I am in an area where I can get GPS signal from satellite but without any G3/G2/Edge/GPRS/Wifi connection (that means I won't be able to download google map), how could I still get GPS navigation (just like a standalone GPS device)? Can I pre-install google map in my N1 SD card? Or do you know any solutions?

    Thanks!

    I know we've talked about this on here before, but I can't remember exactly what the conclusion was. I believe that at this time, there's no way to do what you're wanting, but there's some hope that it will be an option soon. But I can't remember for sure if that's correct.

    There are 3rd party navigation solutions that install maps to your sdcard, and thus do not require any internet connection. Google's free solution does require a live internet connection and they don't have their own alternative.
