GPS without Mobile broadband

2008-09-08, 19:09 PM

I have two questions. Assuming you get the optional Att mobile broadband option on your x300

Can the gps be used without activating a mobile broadband account?

Can one just insert their sim card from their phone and have mobile broand band work on their computer?

Not all cards are supported and may need to be unlocked, see related threads on this.  May be easier to use a USB GPS device while not using your minutes.
