No u don't need that. GPS relies on satellite signals.

again bytes is correct. GPS data streams are free to receive. think of it as your FM radio, when u listen to radio you dont pay anything right? the network data charges that apply only involves maybe up to date traffic information, new points of interests (poi), new landmarks. and if your not downloading satellite imagery overlay like google maps, you basically incur no extra charges when using GPS.

GPS device only shows longitude and latitude. numbers, co-ordinates. Thats all.

I wanted to buy a Garmin late last year, but after much thots, didn't bother to. I rely on my memory and good sense of direction. Haha..

right, its much useful if you go to a new place, like when I went to KK I used garmin. When I went to Brunei, I used Nokia Maps. if not for the GPS Navigation, Im pretty sure I'l still be lost.

Ok, now i get it. Anyway, different devices use dtheir own map right? And some of them has a sort of like a 3D map. Which device would be a good one in terms of accuracy / up to date map? And in terms of portability, are there any devices other than nokia navi?

I did alot of inquiries when I was seriously interested to buy one last year. But. I forgot all the facts now. Haha.. just know that Garmin is highly recommended lor. The eTrex series is pretty sleek.

Hey.. you can play Geocaching wif GPS ler.. That was also one of the motivators why I wanted to get GPS. Haha.. but. practicality (or lack of funds) won over. xP
