Since the phone uses the Android OS, you can purchase an application (such as Tom Tom) to install in the phone and will not require you to have a constant internet connection for navigation. You will find that you will get better accuracy with an open data connection though. Best of luck.
I'm thinking about buying an unlocked version of the Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T from Amazon or Ebay.
I am wondering if the GPS function of the phone uses data OR if it works (like a stand-alone GPS device) off of satellites. I want a phone that does not use data for its GPS, in other words, a built in GPS. Does anyone know if this is the case?
If it does use data, do you have any alternative suggestions? My ideal phone would work with AT&T, have a spacious keyboard, a decent camera (4 MP or better), and a GPS that works as described above.
