No Cell Service for navigation?

Using your phone as a GPS is the big one and for a good reason. The reality is, you can use your phone anywhere in the world and still get your GPS location as well as maps, even when you don’t have cell service. And it doesn’t use data.

Another big misconception is that you can’t rely on your phone to show you maps when you have no cell service. Using an app like Locus Map is a multi-functional Android navigation app adding advanced online and offline GPS capabilities, this application can “cache” or save maps directly to the internal memory in your phone, allowing you to access that map data independent of your network status. Just like purchasing maps from Garmin.
