    is there away to make a droid 1 gps work even without a service plan. I read that the phone needs service for the turn by turn navigation to work, but i was curious to see if anyone out there knows of a trick or maybe a rom.

    I am rooted using Pete's GPA17

    Thanks

    GPS/maps will work but I doubt that navigation will.
    Oh, I should say "will work on wifi"

    No service, no data.

    I kept my OG Droid when I upgraded to the Droid 3. I put the OG Droid into airplane mode and turned on WiFi and GPS,

    On my OG Droid, I am using the app 'Navigation by TeleNav' as this works strictly with GPS and does not require a data connection. I use the 'basic' aka free version. This provides verbal turn-by-turn navigation. I have not used it extensively, but around Richmond, VA it seems to be working fine.
