Re: can i use the GPS without internet connection ?

yes you can , the lock in times might be significantly longer but you can totally use it as stand alone, wait what phone do you have ? on n series, the newer ones it is possible on navigators it is possible but not all phones have that ability hence i ask what phone do you have ?

You can use Nokia Drive 2.0 Offline but not Nokia Maps upon your Lumia 800.

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

IMPO, no Internet connection is definitely fine for Nokia Maps as the software uses offline map data to guide your drive.

BUT, the phone must be under your mobile provider's coverage as it needs A-GPS to help lock the position. Othewise, it would take ages to lock or might be not working at all.
