Not sure where to put this topic but I guess this is just as good a place as any.
Anyone have any experience running GPS navigation, such as Apple and Google maps, on 2G connections? I'm asking just in case I happen to use up all my full speed data and still have to use the app for navigation afterwords. Coverage will still be great, but I will just be stuck with the throttling.
2g on GPS? That's not going to work well. I've done 3g and it's slow.
Get a Garmin, or cache your data ahead of time.

That's why I asked: to learn from everyone. Anyway, I have an CarPlay system was interested in using the navigation system on there, but it draws through Apple Maps. That's why I asked. I actually do have a stand alone Garmin GPS app with the fully downloaded maps on them and after reading this, it seems I should just stick with that. Haha

There are also standalone apps for phones where you download the map and don't need data. I travel a lot in areas where I get no signal or bad data conntection, used HERE Maps for that and added MAPS.ME recently.

Right. I have the Garmin app which is standalone (a MASSIVE 1.7GB on my phone) and it's worked well, but doesn't interface with CarPlay. But based on what I've read, I'll stick with my Garmin.
