I think if you had the PQ's (GPX file) loaded in the phone you would be OK 
except if you needed the maps, which are downloaded as you need them. Or as 
long as you had a wi-fi connection it would be the same as having the data 
connection. The GPS works without data or wi-fi, so you'd always have the arrow 
to follow.

  I'm leaving for Havana, Cuba on Monday.  GPS units are illegal to bring into 
the country.  I do have an Iphone with the Groundspeak app loaded.  My 
understanding is that US cell phones won't work (and I probably wouldn't want 
to pay the data fee anyway).  So the question is this:  will the gps on my 
cellphone work if I have the send/receive data off.


  I'm sure this geocaching 101 at this point, I just want to make sure.  There 
is one cache near my hotel that I think I can find without a gps, but there are 
several more available if......
