    Is it possible to install a chunk of maps to get to use the GPS feature without wifi or data service. I tried it once with my phone sim installed but had to remove it so as not to get overcharged.

    I would recommend Ndrive. Copilot maps are pretty bad.

    I use WisePilot. It's free and so are the maps. I haven't used it too much, so I don't know if the maps are that great. So far so good though!

    According to their own website, Wisepilot is not free. It only has a 5 day free trial:

    NORTH AMERICA

    Basic services Navigation - 1 day 1.49 EUR Navigation - 1 month 5.95 EUR Navigation - 1 week 2.95 EUR Navigation - Lifetime 59.95 EUR Premium services My Maps - Lifetime 4.95 EUR Wcities - Lifetime 2.95 EUR Premium Navigation - 1 day $1.49 USD Premium Navigation - Lifetime $19.95 USD Speed Cameras - 1 week $2.95 USD Speed Cameras - Lifetime $9.95 USD


    Nor does it work without an internet connection(which the OP requested):

    1: Do I need an internet connection to use Wisepilot?

    Yes, you do.

    You are not connected all the time though, only for a few seconds at a time when you for example perform searches, view maps or calculate routes.

    Wow...the app page in the market was completely misleading then.
