Is it okay to use this phone even without using a screen protector? Gorilla glass is scratch resistant right? Hoping you could guys answer. Thank you! :)
suecliff, 01 Jul 2013I'm 5hinking of buying the S3, read loads of rviews but still I have a question that hasn't be... moreThe GPS Chip does not need Internet connectivity. However, the Maps need to be downloaded for use. There is no problem anymore, as Google Maps app allows you to pre-download the map and use it in offline mode.

Systems that use the cell network or wifi to determine your location are called
Assisted-Global-Positioning-System. they triangulate your location using the cell towers and are no way a accurate as GPS, but they use less power as there communications are to near by towers not multiple sats orbiting the earth which is what the GPS system use.

No cellular or wifi connection need to determine your location.
Once you have your maps stored and a extended or extra battery you are good to go.
If you need live traffic like what is given in waze. You will need Internet.
As traffic info doesn't come from the global positioning satellite.
