Using Samsung Note and Tomtom Satnav whilst in Europe

Anonymous
Not applicable

I have the Tomtom on my Samsung Galaxy Note and use it getting around the UK with little or no problem. I am about to spend some time in Europe (France mainly) and want to know if I'll be charged by O2 if I have my satnav on and running on my phone. Has anyone got any experience ? It's not going to be worth while using if I come home to a massive mobile bill.

If the maps are on your phone, turn off data (and data roaming) and turn on GPS and there will be no need for any downloads.
If you have to download maps, do it on WiFi before you set off on a journey.
