Nokia N9 - Can Maps in Nokia N9 be used in offline mode to avoid data costs?

You can use Maps and Drive in Nokia N9 also in offline mode without an internet connection if you have the required map data in your phone. To switch Maps and Drive to offline mode, select:

  • In Maps, deactivate More > Settings > Online.
  • In Drive, select  More > Settings > Connection > Offline.

Note that the device may still use internet connection if Assisted GPS (A-GPS) is enabled in the positioning settings for better location accuracy. A-GPS can be disabled in the device settings:

  • Turn off Settings > Device > GPS and positioning > Mobile data connection.

When A-GPS is turned off, it may take a longer time to get the GPS fix.
