just download OsmAnd from play.google.com plus the UK maps and you can use the Samsung as a sat nav without mobile data connection for free.

Some of the reviews were pretty negative, unfortunately.

I'm not too surprised at that...although I have to admit to being a bit "thick" on Map programs of any sort..always think a real paper map I can FAR better understand.. but I've just tried the free version of OsmAND and just cannot get anything with it worthwhile..  !!    I'd certainly not want to have to rely on it when lost in the Yorkshire Jungles !!    (is it THAT bad !!!...I think not........)
