    When using Apple maps, you will need either a wi-fi connection or a 3G/4G connection. Apple maps will be unable to get directions or track your location if you do not have signal. On the other hand, you could always print off directions if you know that during your journey you will be unable to get signal.

  • Of course you need wifi or a data plan.

    Maps cannot work without a data connection.
