    GPS, Google Maps, Google Navigate on 3rd-party SIM card?

    I am about to upgrade to a Droid 2 Global from an original Motorola Droid.

    On a CDMA-only Droid, GPS does not work in Europe, though if the phone can identify your location by a wireless signal, it can download the appropriate maps and give you navigation instructions.

    If I use the Droid 2 Global with a SIM card for a European carrier, and a data plan, is the situation any better? Will GPS (and programs that rely on it, such as Google Navigate) now work as it does in the US?

    Yes, it works fine in the UK (I used it there myself) and so I would think it works in other European countries where Google Navigation is available (which is many of them).
